Japanese people adore Korean food, although their version tends to be milder and sweeter than the original dishes. Behind Pyon Pyon Sya's cheery exterior is quality ramen, based on the Korean favorite, naengmyeon. The noodles are elastic and chewy in texture and are served in delicious broths, which you can heat up by adding some house kimchi. It's cheap and cheerful and filling and an excellent way to cool down on a hot Tokyo summer's day.
On the basement floors of Ginza Mitsukoshi, a busy store in the middle of Ginza-chome, you will find a thriving depa-chika which provides a veritable tour-de-force of Japanese cuisine. In the Kayuen section, you can find a plethora of Japanese sweets. The second level has a wide selection of bento box meals and ready cooked foods which you can take away to a quiet park bench. Pick and choose what you want - you'll find pretty much anything you need to satisfy your desire for quick, tasty Japanese food.
If you're a spice lover looking for your next fix, Mouko Tan-Men Nakamoto should definitely be on your list of places to go. The noodles are prepared daily from scratch and are crisp and fresh which definitely marks out Mouko as not just another ramen place. But really, the noodles are secondary to the broth and toppings. The menu brings to your attention the spiciness rating - the house specialty, mouko tanmen (noodles topped with mapo dofu) rates a five but it still packs a serious punch. Thrill seekers should definitely go up a few notches on the scale but the hotter the dish gets, the faster you have to eat it or else your mouth will pucker in defeat. Staff are friendly and it's a great spot to simply sit back and indulge in some tangy goodies!
