Shinatatsu Ramen is a food court in Haneda Airport that is a relatively new addition that is a little hard to find being tucked away in a corner prior to the main airport itself.  To find it, look for the 7-11 that is on the departures floor just before you get to the main airport ticket counters.  Keep going back and you'll see it back there.

Creamy chicken ramen
It's an interesting concept with 3 different mini-store fronts, each with their own menu and ticket machine.  Since this is an international airport everything is well labelled making ordering easy.  My wife loves chicken broth and there was a creamy chicken ramen available that was actually quite tasty, though I thought the noodles were a bit disappointing.

I went for the stir fried pork miso ramen, and though there was a bit of a snafu with someone else grabbing my bowl and they had to make another one for me after I got tired of waiting, it ended up being well worth the wait with very tasty pork fried with miso paste and nice think firm noodles in a delicious miso broth.  Sadly I forgot to take a picture...once I finally got it I dug right in.

There were several other dishes that looked really good, and neither of us got to try the tonkotsu broth specialty place, so there's plenty to try next time!
