New ramen shop at Ueno Station

I found a ramen shop was newly opened at the JR Ueno Station(JR上野駅) and it is "Tonari(トナリ)", which has been a bit popular in Tokyo recently. Tonari's specialty is tanmen(タンメン), a ramen with chicken salt soup and fried vegetables. Tanmen is usually served at canteen, reasonable diners, etc. and I haven't see such a "tanmen" specialty ramen shop. There was a small queue(still, people may not notice this shop yet).
Entrance of Tonari
Fried chicken and fried dumplings 
A set meal comprising fried chicken or fried dumplings and a tanmen costs JPY880. The portion of tanmen is very big!! Moreover, what a hearty...beansprout and other vegetables are on the noodle! They emphasized we can get necessary amount of vegetable a day by eating this tanmen. Noodle is very thick. Soup is a simple chicken based salt stock. First, it was very tasty, but...I got a bit tired of this tanmen because of the big portion. If you are big eater, it might be very ok! For me, it was a bit heavy. taste is nice. My rating is 2.7 out of 5. Gochiso-samadeshita!
