Just a five-minute walk from Toranomon Station, Nagasaki Hanten might be a little hard to spot compared to the sky-high Toranomon Hills complex right in front of you, but this Chinese-style restaurant always gets packed around lunchtime. The signature dishes here are champon (¥900) and dish noodles (¥900), both made with speciality noodles sourced from – you guessed it – Nagasaki. Acclaimed for its authentic taste, the champon is topped with cabbage, bean sprouts, split peas, shiitake mushrooms, oysters, squid, clam, pork and kamaboko (pasted fish), and served in a lightly flavoured soup with hints of grilled veg and seafood. Pay an extra ¥100 for a large size of either noodles or toppings, or go for the completely noodle-free champon soup instead.
