There are some fifty different varieties to choose from, along with twenty-five optional toppings, so you can have a different bowl here every visit. (There's a handy top-ten list if you're overwhelmed by choice.) Pastas start at under Y1000.
This book will introduce you to more than twenty of Japan's favorite specialty foods that are less well known abroad, along with a guide to the best places in Tokyo to try them and expert tips on what to order. From Bento.com.
