My favorite cuisine is RAMEN and my wife & I go out to have it at least twice a week. When I come back from an overseas trip, the first thing I always want to eat is ramen. In fact, many Japanese people are like me. Every ramen shop is different and there are over 30,000 ramen shops in Japan. Its cheap, quick, filling and called the people's food of Japan. Therefore, I will be introducing many ramen shops to you. To start is TONARI, which only serves Tanmen (ramen with stir fried vegetables on top).


tonari tanmen 1
Tanmen is usually found at Chinese restaurants, not at ramen shops. So, what makes Tonari's tanmen different from Chinese restaurants?


tonari tanmen 2
Soup is made out of pork, chicken and many other ingredients which makes it very rich in flavor, when most tanmen soups are light and clear. Also, noodles are much thicker than normal tanmen noodles. All this makes Tonari's tanmen one of its kind.

When your tanmen is ready to serve, one of the chef's will ask you if you want fresh chopped ginger (which is SHOGA) in it or not. Ask him to put it on a separate plate (just say BETSU-SARA-DE ONEGAI-SHIMASU) and not on top of the tanmen. Have some tanmen without ginger first and add a little later.


tonari karaage
You can also order it with Karaage (Fried Chicken), which they offer a set menu called TANKARA (Tanmen & Fried Chicken),


tonari gyoza 1
or with Gyoza (Pan fried dumplings), which the set menu is called TANGYO (Tanmen & Gyoza).


tonari menu 1
Most people order this set menu, but for people with a bigger appetite you can order a larger portion of noodles for 100 yen extra or bowl of rice for 80 yen.

tonari tsukemen
They also serve tsukemen type of tanmen called TANTSUKE, noodles are cold, served seperately from the soup, which is hot. You dip the noodle into the soup.

At lunch time there is a good wait, but not more than 30 min.

You're in the sushi capital of the world, but don't want to pay top yen and still want to eat great sushi you can't get at home. Its becoming tougher these days to find such a sushi restaurant, but I would have to say one of the most popular sushi restaurants for middle class Japanese people is UMEGAOKA SUSHI-NO MIDORI SOHONTEN. (shortly called MIDORI SUSHI)


midori inside
MIdori Sushi has several locations. Ginza, Akasaka, Shibuya, Daikanyama and 5 other locations, None of them take reservations and the wait could be as long 90 min especially Shibuya location. So, if you are in a hurry, this place isn't for you. Also, unless you drink a lot your bill will normally be under 5,000 yen per person, but the quality of sushi is more than 5,000 yen. The pictures listed here are from the Shibuya location and this is the only location I've been to.


midori tokusen
Most people order either Ultimate Sushi Assortment (2,100 yen)


midori itasan
or Chef's Special Sushi Assortment (2,940 yen)


midori kobore
If these assortments don't make you full, I would recommend to additionally order Large Serving Salmon Roe or Sea Urchin.


midori aburi
If you don't like Salmon Roe or Sea Urchin, try some Grilled Sushi like the above.


midori counter
Of course, you can order piece by piece and create your own sushi assortment.


midori lunch
Also, the sushi assortment they serve for lunch is very reasonable around 1,000 yen.
