Located just a 4-minute walk from Shibuya Station, Dōgenzaka Mammoth is a very popular restaurant where the line can sometimes go out the door. We would like to especially recommend trying their popular menu item "Noukou Nikuiri Tsukemen" which is a ramen dipping noodle dish with rich-flavored meat.

You can choose from 2 different types of noodles, but we would especially recommend the embryo bud noodles. The thick noodles which have had embryo buds kneading into them are so delicious you could eat them alone!

The flavor of the fish scented soup together with the strong texture of the thick noodles comes together for an amazing taste. The noodles have enough bounce to fight back against your bite, and the overall dish is so delicious your chopsticks won't stop moving! Not only delicious, but the embryo bud noodles are rich in nutrition!

Furthermore there are only menu items such as spicy dishes or Chinese soba noodle dishes, so we're sure you can find a dish that suits your preference.
