Recommended bowl: Elegant wontonmen

Long known as one of the top bowls of wontonmen in central Tokyo, with a steady stream of customers coming in daily. The OG master Inauda-san trained at Tantantei in Hamadayama, an institution for Tokyo style wontonmen. The first Yakumo shop opened in Nakameguro in 1999, then moved to Ikejiri-Ohashi in 2005, with another move just a stone's throw from the prior location in 2017. The bowls come with a clean, sophisticated, clear soup, made from chicken, pork, and about ten different sea ingredients. No bones go into the soup stock, only meat. Diners have a choice of getting their bowls served with a white or black shoyu tare. The handmade wontons come in pork or shrimp, with noodles supplied by well-known Mikawaya Seimen. The shop and kitchen is spotless, with bowls being prepared meticulously. Recommended for something on the lighter side.
