Soba

1. Kanda Matsuya (神田まつや)

Built in 1924, Matsuya welcomes the customers with wooden tables, giant white paper lanterns hanging outside. Kanda Matsuya is not just a soba restaurant. If you can pay a visit to the place, it’s best to enjoy your soba with some simple side dishes such as toasted seaweed; tempura; or a stick or two of yakitoriThis authentic restaurant is a place for not only a soba but for a couple of drinks. Kanda Matsuya is located at a walkable distance from the famous Akihabara Electric town.

Ramen

Ikina Isshou has the look at the entrance of any other old ramen shop, but its interior inside are very bright, clean and new. They serve both hot ramen in winter and cold ramen in the summer. Despite its popularity, the shop is quite small and there’s no English menu as well as English speaking staff, but don’t worry, images come with the menu!

4. Kanda Isono (神田 磯野)

This small ramen shop portraits a very traditional look from old-style ramen shop, thanks to the curtain (noren) at the entrance. There are not many seats so you would want to be early-arrived if you want a spot. The kitchen is right next to the counter seats, so customers can enjoy watching their ramen be cooked. Kanda Isono also provides “Today’s Taki-Meshi”, which is a rice cooked with some vegetables and seasoned with soy sauce apparently the very popular menu of Kanda Isono.

8. Marugo (丸五)

Must say this is one of the best tonkatsu restaurants in Tokyo that you shouldn’t miss. The restaurant has two floors and probably seats about 30 people, but since this is a very popular place, I would recommend you to come here for early or late lunch in order to avoid waiting too long in line. The menu is varied with different kinds of meat use to make tonkatsu, but in short, they are all juicy, tender, and delicious!

Yakitori

11. Ichijiku (九)

This is actually an izakaya, but you can still have your delicious yakitori for lunch, also the very popular Seseri-don, a bowl of rice with crispy Seseri toppings. Seseri is the most delicious part of chicken’s neck and must be noted that Seseri is also Ichijiku’s most liked dish. You should go to Ichijiku for your night out, enjoy some grilled dishes, especially grilled Seseri and some glasses of sake like the locals.

12. Tachinomi Kushigin (立ち飲み 串吟)

You can call it an Izakaya, or just a standing bar which serves cheap and delicious yakitori. It’s one of the most popular night out places in Akihabara, thanks to its location convenience and good food. Always packed with people and very lively, the recommendation here is the liver yakitori.
