Need frugal recs for Tokyo
Near the Nippori Train Station, east exit, across the street on the corner is a noodle shop. There is a guy pulling noodles in the window. They speak NO English there and we speak NO Japanese, but they welcomed us anyway. It is a little dive with the waitress yelling the orders to the cook. Without a shadow of a doubt, the best plate of noodles I have ever had. It was a mix of veg, a couple of shrimp, bit of ham in a light soy and stock base. Just wait until you see it and point.
