Kanda station area has alot of tiny popular restaurants but trying to find a spot that doesnt have a line at 12 noon is soooo difficult.
So after wandering around with my colleagues for 15 minutes we randomly entered this Chinese restaurant.
Lots of lunch choices pictured.
How can you go wrong with Mabo Tofu lunch set!
But what arrived was a very lumpy soup with only tofu and lots of black pepper. Why was this so lumpy with jelly'ish goo? It was just soooo mediocre at best. The salad was old and slice of apple tasted sour. Thought for sure I would have a stomach ache.
When in Kanda and not pressed for time you gotta go where the lines are! Never in Japan do you go into a restaurant that is not busy during lunch.
For tsukemen you can get a massive 440 grams of noodles. My limit is around 200 grams.
Picked the top left button... shoyu ramen
Overheard the waitress and chefs talking... seems the staff here is all Chinese.
Free spicy seasoned bean sprout topping on the counter.
Here it is! Not very beautiful.
Charsiu pork was dry, the noodles were thin and had no texture... the soup bland. Yup, I should have known and headed to the nearby Afuri. Ugh...
If you interested in gauging what really bad ramen is vs great ramen then perhaps you can stop by and regret eating a bowl of ramen here. Never again I promise! Oh Japanese foodies give it a lowly 3.08 points on Tabelog.
