It's almost worth rerouting your trip via Tokyo Station to eat at this noodle shop. T's Tantan, an offshoot of Jiyugaoka eatery T's Restaurant, earns the rare distinction of being one of the only places selling vegetarian ramen in Tokyo – or, at least, ramen that's actually worthy of the name. The speciality of the house is Chinese-style tantanmen, served in a broth flavoured with sesame and peanut oil and available with a range of toppings. Our medium-spiced 'midori tantan', topped with leafy greens, soymeat mince and pumpkin seeds (nice touch, that) wasn't as rich as the meat-based version of the dish, but made for a hearty lunch nonetheless. T's Tantan can be found inside JR Tokyo Station, at the end of the Keiyo Street shopping parade on the way to the Keiyo line platform.
