晴 (Haru in Uguisudani)

Beautiful. Haru, over on Tokyo's east side, is one of those bowls that tastes as good as it looks. Simple, but screaming in terms of impact and umami flavors.

Located just a few minutes from Uguisudani Station, that one station on the famed Yamanote Line that no one ever uses.

It is a typical light soup of niboshi (dried fish), pork, and chicken. While the rest of the world seems to be going crazier and crazier with their soups, I'm liking this Tokyo trend of simple and light.

Slow roasted chashu and quality menma on top.

While this spot is on the opposite side of town for anyone in Shinjuku or Shibuya, residents or tourists over in the east might find a journey to Haru to be a nice detour.
