There's two reasons why you can see long queues of people in front of a restaurant in Tokyo: because it has appeared recently on TV or just because it's a really good one. Although I still prefer the taste of Hakusan's soup, the Sengoku Jiman's pork meat really deserves the popularity.Their headquarters is located at Sengoku, but they've also opened shops at Nishi-Sugamo, Hachioji and Uguisudani.*Ramen: noodles in soup.Phone: 3944-0336.
There's a street oden vendor near Kichijouji station that has no name, but it's a fantastic place to try these tipical Japanese delicacy consisting of several ingredients, such as eggs, daikon radish, meat, konnyaku or processed fish cakes, boiled on soy and dashi (fish broth) soup. The owner is really nice and love foreigners coming to his place. Take a sit, a beer and enjoy.
You will find Tako-Yaki everywhere. It´s a really cheap street food: fried octopus pancake ball that looks really strange the first time, but you must try it. There are small shops and stalls that only sell them everywhere.
ura ebis. is an restaurant/café located between Daikanyama and Ebisunishi. With a really trendy but lay-back atmosphere, it’s the perfect place to enjoy lovely western-inspired dinners (main dish for around ￥1500), a healthy lunch on weekdays or a brunch on weekends (around ￥1000), some of the fabulous home-made desserts (￥880) or just sit back and perhaps read a good book and enjoy a cooling ice-coffee.

No doubt. Along with Sengoku ramen (and its gorgeous meat) this is the best ramen (noodles in soup) I have ever eaten. When you pass by this small street restaurant there's nothing that makes you think that you will find a treasure like that. But if you wait and take a look, you'll realize that each minute a car stops there just to enjoy this simple delicacy. Many Japanese come everyday from every part of the city to Hakusan just for its ramen. Phone: 090-3337-9044
