From a recent visitor to ramenadventures.com,
"Daishi is getting hot in Bunkyo. It's about a 15min walk from Yushima. A former TV Champion (on TV Tokyo) Ramen King claims it will break through into Ramen fame. Basically Chuka-soba-style with chicken oil. Thoroughly prepared and delightful. For more stimulation, you can try Tamuraya. Closer to Hongo-Sanchome. Their Miso-Niku-Tofu-Tanmen is spicy-hot (if you get the "karasa-ari"), maybe a bit salty and pricey (1,100yen)."
Now that's the kind of comment I like!
Tamuraya has about 6 or 7 types of tantanmen available. Regular, vegetable, meat, or tofu; plus some seasonal dishes.
The cheese cream tantanmen at was appealing, but I went with the miso mabodofu tantanmen (as recommended) instead.
A massive brimming bowl. At 1100 yen it's kind of pricey. And though the tantanmen part of the bowl was excellent, the mabodofu was fairly normal. I used to work in the same building as Iron Chen Kenichi's mabodofu shop, so I'm a little spoiled when it comes to the spicy tofu stir fry.
As always, anything in East Tokyo gets compared to Kikanbou, my favorite spicy miso shop in the area. And as always, I say go to Kikanbou first, and all the other places second.
