Welcome to go-en
Our recipes are direct from Japan with input from some of Tokyo's finest ramen chefs and sensei (teachers). Of course we had to promise not to tell their secrets to the world before they would share their special knowledge. (We have to guard these secrets very carefully since we really do not want to anger the ramen ninjas.)
In addition to our ramen dishes we have a number of other items for days when you just don't feel like a noodle. We also have various side dishes that combine nicely into a full meal or are great with Japanese beer or a Japanese mixed drink.
Both table and counter seating are available so come alone or bring friends. We are available for parties or get-togethers (up to 40 people); just call us to set up a reservation.
The Story of Our Name
In Japan the five yen coin is called "goen". It is written as 五円 and is the only Japanese coin without Western numerals. It is considered a good luck piece as well. When put in the back of a cash register or in a wallet given as a gift, it means good luck with money.
However the phonetically similar 御縁 (goen) is taken to mean good luck in relationships and is often exchanged between friends. It is this meaning from which we take the name of our shoppe.
We look forward to forging a strong relationship with you through our commitment to good food and a friendly atmosphere.
