MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Both turtles and noodles symbolize longevity, so a meal here should add a few years to your life (and warmth to your belly). Inside, diners sit elbow-to-elbow at sleek communal tables, but there are also a handful of booths along one wall, as well as a glass mezzanine with a view of the dining room below. Boutique beverages like Hitachino Nest beer and Ramuné bubble-gum soda bring smiles to patrons in the know. The menu of Japanese comfort food is compact, featuring a few ramen bowls, sashimi, maki, as well as hot and cold small plates for snacking and sharing. Then bao filled with smoky-glazed pork belly and pickled veggies arrive fluffy and piping hot. It hardly gets better than the duck fat-fried chicken, a puffed up shell of fried happiness.
