Chow Rundown: Morizumi

Morizumi is located towards the end of a hill of residential buildings and small restaurants. Both interior and exterior design looks nothing like a ramen restaurant (more like an Italian café) which might seem off-putting to people who want authentic ramen shops. However, don’t let that stop you from trying out their food! What I absolutely loved about this place is the open kitchen. There’s nothing better than seeing your food freshly prepared in front of you.

FOOD RUNDOWN

They only have a couple of food options. I opted for their gyoza and traditional shoyu ramen with chasu.

Morizumi GyozaI’m a huge gyoza eater and this is one of the best ones I’ve tasted so far in Tokyo. Their gyoza is steamed and not fried like usual. I did not care for the shredded cabbage on top, but it might act as a salad for some.

Ramen MorizumiA lot of people would be turned off by their ramen as it tastes less like Japanese ramen and more like the Chinese version. I still loved it, and would recommend to try.
