Its no big secret but I hate fish, so youll be hard pressed to find me in a Japanese Restaurant (due to their pescy habit of serving mostly fish-based dishes). Nevertheless I was dragged down a dark industrial looking street to the Cocolo Ramenbar (which turned out to be just a street off from the “Trendy” Tor Straße)
Cocolo Ramenbar: Small, hot and cramped – but oh so delicious
Cocolo Ramenbar is a tiny, hot, cramped Japanese Noodle bar – whose Menu boasts a grand total of 5 Main Dishes – and dear lord I must say this is the best ramen ive had in years.
Its a bit on the pricey side – with prices averaging €8.50 for a bowl of ramen, but being able to watch as your noodle soup is made infront of you makes up for it by all means – and the noodles itself are fantastic. You can choose from a small assortment of side dishes, the most popular probably being the steamed and salted snap peas.
A tip on the side – make sure to bring enough cash as this place doesnt take plastic – and the next ATM is quite a walk away.

I’ve been pining for this place since you reviewed it and for absolutely no good reason still haven;t been there. That changes tonight! Thanks for the tip.
