Located in a secluded back alley two minutes' walk from Kanda Station, this place has a rather sleek, modern Japanese interior. It's actually the sister shop of Nanahasu in Nihonbashi, but this particular joint focuses on all things bird for their ramen. They go a bit further than the classic clear chicken broth recently celebrated among noodle enthusiasts, instead opting to create more complex dishes such as a completely duck-based ramen (the Kamo no Koi Dashi Soba, ¥850), as well as one that mixes chicken and seafood in a double stock and then tops it all off with a salty sauce (Torisoba Shio, ¥800). All soups are additive-free, with the shio version being simple and gentle, the shoyu firmly flavoured and the clear duck soup rich but exquisite. Their char siu toppings come in duck, chicken and pork varieties, while their yakitori – unusually for a ramen shop – is good too.
