This is probably not going to get many replies...but where would I find plain natto? I am seriously craving it! :)
The only problem is most restaurants don't prepare it the way I like, so simple, saltless, and plain, would be ideal.
The quick answer- Asahi Market. They have several kinds of frozen natto. Defrost it overnight, stir in the little soy sauce / mustard packs if you want to, serve over rice, voila.
I don't think there's anywhere that serves it, aside from maybe the occasional special at Uchi or Musashino.

As far as I know, it's all plain. You don't have to add the mustard and sauce if you don't want to. I've had freshly prepared natto (if you can even describe the process as fresh, haha), and it's surely better, but the frozen stuff isn't bad at all in my novice opinion. Plus, it's pretty cheap, so maybe give it a try for the hell of it :)
I know almost nothing about natto, but I'm pretty sure they have it on the menu at Sushi-a-Go-Go. Not sure whether it is plain or not.
