While dining in under the restaurant's famed wooden trellis ceiling installation is no doubt a great experience, the good news is that Ajitama's ramen is just as tasty when eaten from the comfort of your own dining table. Named after the seasoned half-boiled eggs that traditionally top the soup noodle dish, the restaurant, which began as a supper club concept by two ramen aficionados, serves up a variety of different ramen options alongside tempting dishes like Japanese curry or gyozas.
