1. Ayam-YA Okachimaci, Taito

One of the best Halal ramen in Japan one must try! Ayam-Ya is very famous with its spicy chicken broth. It is very thick and the yolk from the soft-boiled eggs enrich the flavour of it. One of its popular menu is Spicy Tori Ramen Shoyu (spicy ramen with soy sauce flavour). You can get it with only 850 yen, however if you want to add-on a soft-boiled egg, you’ll have to pay an extra 100 yen.

2. Naritaya, Asakusa

Located in the never-sleep district in Tokyo, Naritaya Asakusa is almost always crowded and full of visitors. Nonetheless it’s still worth a visit after an exciting journey to Sensoji temple, Asakusa shrine and many other museums in Asakusa. Naritaya is very famous with its ramen. One of the ramen you should not miss there is Mazesoba, a dry ramen without soup. It only costs you 700 yen to try this favourite menu. What’s more? It also provides a praying space so you won’t have to worry about finding another place to perform your prayers.

Mazesoba in Naritaya Asakusa by Aprillia Suandi

Review on Halal Navi :

“Located in Asakusa, a famous tourist soot in Tokyo, Naritaya is often fully occupied during weekends. It is worth waiting for, although I prefer to go there in weekdays to avoid the crowd😁 Among all the menus, my favourite is mazesoba, noodle with no soup, and karaage, the japanese style friend chicken. The price is very affordable too. And, they also provide praying space. But what I love the most from Naritaya is the ice cream! It’s rice ice ream with soy milk and available in three flavours: vanilla, azuki (red beans), and kodaimai (Japanese ancient rice). Wish it is sold in Japanese supermarkets and I can easily get it when craving for ice cream!.”  Aprillia Suandi

3. Sojibo Divercity Plaza, Odaiba

Soba might not be as popular as Ramen but never ever underestimate them! It has a brownish color as it’s made from buckwheat flour. The texture is much softer and less elastic than ramen. It is usually served cold in a bamboo tray with soup or other condiment dish. Curious enough? Check out this cheap and Halal soba restaurant in Diver-city Plaza with only 600-800 yen!

4. Kaijin Ramen, Shinjuku

Kaijin Ramen has been operating for 8 years and is very popular with its 100% fish based ramen. You can get a bowl of ramen for 830 yen. But if it is not enough to satisfy your tummy, don’t worry, you can order ramen with spicy onigiri (rice ball) for 980 yen. Although this restaurant is not Halal certified, they do not use any pork or alcohol in their ingredients. Do ask them to swap the chicken topping with shrimp ball as their chicken is not Halal.

Tips: Save your onigiri for the last and put it in the remaining broth once you’ve finished your ramen. Oishii!

Spicy seafod base ramen with rice ball in Kaijin ramen by Mariam Roslan

Review on Halal Navi :

“… I didn’t expect the portion was too large even though we just having standard size of ramen. I decided to took the spiciest one!! Actually i just wondering japanese hottest and spiciest level. i thought it just standard range of spicy but i was wrong and lil bit regret about it. It was tooooo spicy though 🔥😝 I love their prawn ball. Aaaa.

Their ramen so good even though my nostril water keep running😅😁 We ordered homemade salt egg for topping. I thought it was just like malaysian one. It just a lil bit salty compare with malaysia’s salt egg. I guess since many muslim already has dine in here, they seems know what we can and cannot eat just like chicken ball and whatever else. I can give 7 over 10. Another 3 lost by long queue 💁🏻…”  Mariam Roslan

Review on Halal Navi :

“I thank them for opening this vegetarian restaurant at Tokyo Station ーthe central mobility of the city, so it’s very convenient for Muslim and vegetarian travelers who want to enjoy Japanese dishes while sticking to their dietary habits. I saw many foreign faces when I was there. Their specialty is ramen, and they serve also some other ‘fake meat’-based menus like gyoza and karaage that are all actually made from soybeans. To me, the karaage tastes like “tempeh”, and it’s oishii! …”  Ndanazihah
