はしご (Hashigo in Ginza)

支那麺 はしご 銀座八丁目店

Ginza is a strange animal. It is by far the most upscale part of Tokyo, in terms of fashion brands and expensive cuisine. $400 sushi dinner anyone?

Yet ramen still has a place. While I'm sure many of the local businessmen dream of eating a break-the-bank tempura lunch course, a quick bowl of dandanmen is the reality.

Hashigo is a bit more Chinese than most tantanmen shops in Japan. Just enough sweat-inducing spice to satisfy across the board. Free rice with pickled radish. Zasai and paiko for people who want something unique.

While I prefer the more Japanese kodawari styles, it is good to find a shop that specializes in the Chinese versions.
