Specialising in Saga-style ramen, a rare sight in Tokyo, Midori opened on an Asakusa backstreet in 2010 and has enjoyed constant popularity ever since. Their tonkotsu soup is mild, slightly sweet but still full-bodied, making for an impressive mixture that stands out from the crowd. This inoffensive, smooth taste caresses your insides and works nicely both at lunchtime and after a heavy drinking session. Midori also offers a full selection of snacks in the evening – rare for a ramen-centric joint like this. We have to recommend their inarizushi, fried in oil and flavoured with Saga-made soy sauce.
