Not just ramen! Izakaya menu is also substantial
As you can see, Taketora is a ramen shop, but the menu is not limited to ramen! As the name of “Ramen Dining”, it can be used as an izakaya. You can enjoy authentic izakaya food. In addition to snacks such as “Takowasa(=octopus with wasabi)”, there are also multiple salads and grilled dishes. In addition, there is a standard izakaya menu for izakayas such as Karage(=Japanese fried chicken). Large and spicy chicken wings are especially recommended. The price of the izakaya menu is reasonable between 300 and 400 yen. If you are looking for izakayas and ramen shops in Shinjuku, you should definitely go there.
There is also a private room! It's like a stylish izakaya
Delicious ramen and a full izakaya menu are all you need, but the atmosphere inside the shop is also an appealing point of Taketora. The shop is a stylish Western-style izakaya rather than a ramen shop. There is a private room that can accommodate up to 6 people, so you can spend a relaxing drink with your close friends. Generally speaking, there is an image of going to a ramen shop at night after enjoying alcohol at an izakaya. However, Taketora can be used as an izakaya and then as a ramen shop. If you are looking for an izakaya and ramen shop in Shinjuku, you should definitely go there.
