They recommended getting the ramen broth with rice instead of noodles. I tried this but still had a cross contamination reaction. I can't say I'd eat here again unfortunately.

The food tastes great, not so confident in the GF reccomendations.

This was my favorite ramen spot pre-diagnosis. Fortunately you have a few options here, confirmed to me by the manager:Ramen: order the “shio chintan broth” (a soy sauce-less version of their vegan shoyu broth) and request GF so they put rice in it instead of ramen noodlesChicken: the ROASTED chicken quarters are GFRice: the rice w/ chicken drippings and butter is divine. I recommend getting it with an onsen egg on topEgg: make sure you get the onsen egg only, as the nitamago is marinated in soy sauceUnsure what else might be cooked with soy sauce but just ask, the staff is all very knowledgeable.Excellent drinks and craft cocktails as well. The sake is always a safe bet ;)
