Golden Gai or Omoide Yokocho? Any stand out eateries in there?

Charles Yu | Feb 26, 2017 04:59 PM

For our next month's visit, my wife and I managed to squeeze out a free evening for some neon light watching as well as an 'el-cheapo' eat around in Shinjuku.

Between Golden Gai and Omoide Yokocho, which one stood out as offering better tasting food? Any specific recommendations? Just Yakitori choices alone look overwhelming! How about Ramen? Any acceptable ones in there or do we need to make a special trip to say, Ebisu for Afuri or Tokyo Station Ramen street? Seems like too much of a hassle making a special side trip just for a bowl of noodle?!
Thanks in advance!

Ramen Nagi,
