The closest Ramen shop to teamLab Toyosu that can be Muslim-friendly.

There is a Ramen shop called Vegan Ramen UZU Tokyo (ヴィーガンラーメンウズ トウキョウ). This is the second branch of Vegan Ramen UZU Kyoto, which was listed in a Michelin Guide Kyoto. The interior design of UZU Kyoto was completed by one of the designers in teamLab, which is the reason why they have opened the second branch right next to the teamLab Toyosu.

Unfortunately, UZU is not a Halal restaurant, but it is a vegan Ramen shop. Their taste is guaranteed as you can see the fact that they have been listed in the Michelin guide. It is satisfying for the people who like to have meals with meat, too.

What do they offer in UZU? Is this Halal?

As of May 2023, they have only one Ramen menu: Vegan Miso Ramen UZU style. It is a Miso Ramen, but unlike other Miso ramen, the soup is mixed with oat milk, so it has a rich and mild taste. With white sesame paste and garlic, it is a very creative but can be enjoyed by tourists from many other countries.

The soup of the noodle is heated well, so the alcohol is evaporated. However, if you want to make sure that no alcoholic seasoning used in your meal, going to another Halal restaurant would be better.

Thanks to the fact that the dish is not using any food additive, it can be totally free from animal-derived ingredients.
