24-hour restaurants in Tokyo

Does anyone have any favorite 24-hour restaurants in Tokyo?
I like Myondon Norimaki in Okubo - Korean futomaki sushi rolls and great spicy stir-fried pork.
And of course the Peking Duck and phenomenally cheap gyoza at the four branches of Chinese Cafe Eight.
Kaori, thanks for that, but I'm more curious about genuine 24-hour restaurants, as opposed to places that are open until 2am or whatever. The only one on that list that I know was 24 hours was the American pie specialist Anna Miller's, and that branch has been out of business for years now.

It occurred to me that Kaori may be interpreting "24-hour" through Japanese-English. Whenever businesses say they're open "24-hour" in Japan, it usually means until midnight (24:00 which is also misguided since midnight is 00:00) or until the wee hours of the morning.
(I found out the hard way that 24-hour does not mean "open 24 hours", when I showed up at my gym at 6am thinking it was open 24 hours, only to find it closed. The hours on the door showed 8:00 to 24:00)
