The first Tokyo outpost of Niigata-based bar and noodle shop Jun is renowned for its gently aromatic, soy sauce-based double soup drawn from pork bones and seafood (primarily dried sardines). Mixed in are thick, firm noodles brought in daily from Niigata, and the fat level of the dish can be adjusted on a five-point scale according to your preferences. Don't go for the maximum amount though – your bowl will look like it was transported through a blizzard. For the full monty, try the marutoku ramen, topped with menma, chashu pork, boiled eggs and nori seaweed. They also serve miso ramen, chuka soba and a few other dishes, and stay open until 2am (last orders at 1.45am).
