Dive into the world of Do Miso Ramen, a delightful eatery located in the heart of Ginza, Tokyo. Renowned for its rich, flavourful miso-based ramen, Do Miso Ramen offers a unique taste sensation that sets it apart from other ramen establishments in the city.
Miso Curry Ramen
The double pork/chicken soup and seafood in the bowl are cooked “Tokyo-style,” resulting in a soup with a deep miso scent thanks to the miso sauce, which is a unique combination of 5 varieties of miso meticulously picked from all across Japan. To create this one-of-a-kind miso ramen, Asakusa Kaikaro combines wheat flour and tapioca flour, both of which are produced locally.
The thick layer of red curry powder on top was a little daunting at first but when dampened down with the miso it blended in to create a thick yet delicious miso curry!
Miso Orochon Ramen (Spicy Ramen)
The same style and ingredients as above but adding in bonito, mackerel,, seasoning, back fat (not sure whose back fat they used for this), vegetable oil, peanuts, Japanese pepper, spices, Spicy sauce (chili pepper, miso, vegetable oil, bhut jolokia (ghost chilli) & habanero.
I did expect the soft-boiled egg to be a little more runny.
Now this bad boy packs a punch!

A Cosy and Welcoming Atmosphere
The chef greets each guest with a lite queuing area which gets busy at lunch time so arrive early to avoid disappointment. The moment you step into Do Miso Ramen, you’re greeted with a warm, inviting atmosphere.
All Ramen orders are made on a vending machine in Japanese, images of each dish are helpful but you really don’t get the full food experience without knowing the full option available such as side dishes etc, we opted for the Spicy Ramen and Curry Ramen (you need to use coins or lower denomination Yen notes).
The intimate space features minimalist decor, allowing the focus to remain on the delicious food. The narrow restaurant seats around 8 people at the counter facing the chefs.
With friendly and attentive staff on hand to ensure a memorable dining experience, Do Miso Ramen is the perfect spot for a quick lunch or a leisurely meal with friends and family.
There were additional condiments on the counter tops, black pepper or Japanese Pepper, trust me, no additional seasoning is required, both dishes are on fire, literally!
