Formerly known as Soranoiro Salt & Mushroom, the second outpost of Kojimachi's super-popular 'veggie ramen' pioneer Soranoiro stays firmly on the path of light and healthy noodle concoctions. The highlights here include dishes like shio-niboshi (dried sardine- and salt-based soup) soba, mushroom and vegetable soba, and a rare meat version called Sora no Nikusoba. The 'shroom-and-veg one is probably their most popular choice, and for good reason: the pork-based soup is topped with curiosities like cream, onion and potato puré, in addition to the mushrooms of course, and makes for an interesting combination with the flat noodles that also contain a hint of mushroom powder. Don't forget to order some cheese-topped rice with which to soak up the leftover soup.
