Recently, the number of ramen stores in the niboshi type ramen category has been increasing, and it has become a major player in the market.
This time, we will introduce a popular niboshi ramen restaurant in Chitose Funabashi, “Chuka-Soba Nishikawa,” which has many enthusiastic fans.
For business hours, holidays, and reviews, please refer to the official website and the Google map at the bottom.

Despite being far from the station, there is a huge line every day!

About a 15-minute walk from Chitose-Funabashi Station on the Odakyu Line, across Kanpachi-dori Avenue, you will find “Chuka-Soba Nishikawa.
In the past, ramen stores such as Hyuuga-ya and Menya Issei were tenants here, but they did not last long and closed their stores soon after.
I often pass by on Kanpachi Dori, and seeing from my car the daily line of people waiting in line, I decided to pay a visit.

I arrived at the restaurant around 11:40 a.m., and as one would expect from a popular restaurant, there was a line of 12 to 13 people.

Surprisingly delicious niboshi ramen!

This restaurant has a system where you are approached by the restaurant staff and buy a meal ticket just before entering the restaurant.
While waiting in line, I looked up what was recommended on my cell phone and found out that the wontons were delicious with boiled egg, so I topped my wontons with boiled egg.

It took about 30 minutes to enter the restaurant, and the niboshi ramen was finally brought to me.
As you can see from the picture, it looks as if it might have a “bitter” taste, but I did not feel any “bitterness” at all.

Although I knew it was not good for my health, I drank all the soup.
The Chuka-Soba Nishikawa’s Niboshi Ramen was very tasty.

Listed in the Michelin Guide for 5 consecutive years

Chuka Soba Nishikawa opened in September 2017, and the owner seems to have trained at a famous niboshi ramen restaurant.
The restaurant has been listed in the Michelin Guide for the past five consecutive years, and has become a very popular restaurant for niboshi ramen.

I think “Chuka Soba Nishikawa” is a restaurant that stands out in the category of niboshi ramen.
If you are interested in niboshi ramen, please visit the restaurant. I can assure you that you will be satisfied.
