Mitsuwa Marketplace Food Court - Venice & Centinela

Has anyone tried the various little restaurants inside Mistuwa? I shop there all the time and have picked up sashimi from there but have never ventured into the little places in the food court. Any info on what they serve and how they are would be appreciated.

  1. They are decent not outstanding but a good cheap lunch. Kanda the Udon/Soba place used to have the best homemade country style Buckwheat Soba noodles and a rich Beef Broth, but no more they now use a prepackaged noodle. But for $5 its a decent bowl of soup, same with the Ramen place though the broth is very strong.

    1. Tampopo Ramen makes a fine bowl--not Daikokuya quality, but better than Asahi on Sawtelle.

      1. I ditto Tampopo. The place next door to Tampopo makes a good tonkatsu curry.

        1. Santoka—their miso ramen is sooooo gooooooooooood! Also Italian Tomato serves "asian-style" spaghetti (with red meat sauce that is slightly sweet and small sausage links). Yumm. I don't ever pass up a chance to try the little markets there.
