Very popular restaurant with long lines.

After finishing my morning work in Shinjuku that day, I decided to have lunch, but I really wanted to eat ramen, so I decided to search for a restaurant on my cell phone.
After searching this and that, I was somehow attracted by the name of the restaurant, “Fuunji Shinjuku Honten” in Shinjuku.
It seemed to be a very popular restaurant, and when I arrived at the restaurant, there were 12 to 13 people waiting to be seated, but the turnover was fast and I was seated in about 15 minutes.

While waiting, I noticed that most of the customers ordered tsukemen.
I later learned that it was a very popular Tsukemen restaurant.

The thick chicken and seafood soup is delicious!

Although there is now an unprecedented “Tsukemen” boom, I rarely order “Tsukemen” because I prefer regular ramen.
On this day, I did not order tsukemen, but rather “Tokusei Ramen” (1,050 yen) with more chashu pork (price as of April 2022).

When I stirred the ramen that arrived shortly after, the good smell of so-called chuka-soba jumped into my nose, but when I scooped up the soup, I sensed a very rich atmosphere.
I thought to myself, “Oh, this is the usual lumpy stuff,” but to my surprise when I drank it, the seafood-flavored broth, which I could tell even if anyone drank it, was surprisingly refreshing.
This!” Yes, a very tasty soup.
The noodles and chashu pork were also to my liking.

The soup at FU-UNJI Shinjuku Honten is a special soup made by carefully simmering Urume Iwashi and other seafood for eight hours, straining it for six hours, and letting it mature for one day.
While many restaurants offer seafood-pork bone broth, Fūnge Shinjuku’s soup is a thick chicken and seafood broth.
The thick broth may look thick at first glance, but it is lighter than pork bone broth.

Popular among inbound foreigners!

FU-UNJI Shinjuku Honten opened in 2007, and by the time I visited in April 2022, there was only one main store, but it is now expanding into multiple locations, with four stores in the Tokyo metropolitan area, including Yaesu Underground Mall and Omiya.
It seems to be popular among inbound foreigners, with many people visiting every day.
In addition, this ramen restaurant is now selling cup noodles at Seven-Eleven, and is very active at the moment.
The polite and courteous service by the brown-haired owner and the slightly strong-looking waitress was also very pleasing.
FU-UNJI Shinjuku Honten is one of the most popular ramen restaurants in Shinjuku, one of the most competitive ramen districts in Japan, and it is well worth the long lines to get in.
