A Michelin star ramen shop! It is located a few minutes away from Sugamo station. The traditional Japanese-style interior will enlight the trip in the neighborhood. The joint is really popular and there are only 9 seats, therefore you have to go early otherwise you might have to wait in line.

Tsuta has its own ticketing system. Tickets are distributed outside the restaurant from 8 am (and often 7 am). Everyone in the group wanting to eat at Tsuya must be present to get a ticket and pay a refundable 1,000 yen deposit each. The colored ticket represents a seating time at which you can return to the restaurant to eat with tickets typically allocated for 11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm, 3pm or 4pm.

Their specialty dish is the soba with wontons in shoyu (soy sauce) broth with a price of 1,500 yen. Sounds a bit expensive but the truffle oil alone is definitely worth more than the price of the ramen!
