Spice Ramen Manriki: Tokyo’s Spice-infused Culinary Gem Since 2014

Spice Ramen Manriki Nishi-Kasai Honten, located in Tokyo’s Edogawa Ward since May 2014, is a culinary treasure. The name “Manriki” cleverly combines “Man,” symbolizing the potency of spices with “Riki,” representing the vigor of ramen. The creator, drawing from expertise in Indian and Thai cuisine, crafts a unique broth infused with over 14 spice varieties, celebrated for its spiciness, aromatic richness, and addictiveness.

The menu, centered around the Spice Ramen base, offers a range of toppings, including seasoned eggs, bean sprouts, succulent pork chashu, and fragrant cilantro, known for enhancing spice flavors. Customization is encouraged, allowing for spice levels and quantities to match individual preferences. Medium-thick, straight noodles expertly complement the spiced broth, providing both resilience and a satisfying texture. The atmosphere is permeated with a captivating spice-infused aroma that whets the appetite.
