Futaba/Kamiogi
二葉/上荻

 

Futaba (two leaves) had a wait outside on a cold day of about 20 minutes. It was very hold, humid and cramped inside though. Both the shop and the bowl were jam packed, one with closely-seated customers that took up the 9 seats shoulder-to-shoulder, another with soup components that included cabbage and onions, and a well blended but clearerand still fatty broth. Be sure to read the various notes on the sign, or have someone read them for you. I had the Ramen Jiro look-alike dish and it was fairly good. There are two shops in this chain, less than a quarter-mile straight line distance from each other, and both within close walking distance of JR Ogikubo Station.
