While brand-spanking new Gagana Ramen  has its requisite standard and spicy soups, the real draw for punters is the aburi horumon tsukemen. It’s made withkuroge wagyu—beef offal from the renowned Japanese black cow. It’s delicately heated before being popped in the soup, giving it a crunchy-but-juicy texture and divine aroma. It’s not everyone’s cup of soup but for the offal-initiated, it’s a treat worth the ¥880.
