Time Out says

Hungry diners should seek out this chic noodle joint in Ginza, which specialises in spicy, mapo-style ramen noodles. Whipped up by a former Chinese restaurant chef, the mapo-men (¥1,300) is made with ample amounts of mouth-numbing Sichuan pepper, bound to get your tear ducts working. Thankfully, if you’d prefer to customise your bowl, the restaurant lets you choose from three levels of spiciness: light, medium and heavy. If need be, add a bit of the sansho oil provided on each table for an extra punch; it'll make the noodles all the more fragrant.

The menu also includes the popular jiru-nashi tantanmen (soupless dandan noodles, ¥1,100), a regular tantanmen (dandan noodles in soup, ¥1,300) featuring ground meat, nuts and coriander, and a sanra-anmen (sweet and sour soup noodles, ¥1,300) – all of which are classic Japanese-Chinese dishes. If you’re coming for lunch, drop by a bit early as the shop is known to sell out pretty quickly.
