Yosuko Saikan (揚子江菜館)

Located 2 minutes walk from Jinbocho station, this restaurant is said to be the place where hiyashi chuka was born long time ago.

Their hiyashi chuka (1510 yen) is served beautifully like mountain. The sauce is sweet and sour, which is refreshing in the hot summer. It also has some boiled shrimps and shiitake mushrooms as toppings.

This is a famous Cantonese restaurant located very close to Yurakucho and Hibiya station.

Their signature menu is gomadare (sesame paste sauce) hiyashi chuka. The sauce is incredibly rich, creamy, and flavorful that goes well with the nicely cooked noodles and toppings. They also offer spicy hiyashi chuka, and both are 1230 yen.

3 minutes walk away from Yoyogi station, you can find this small ramen shop called Isoji. They only have counter seats.

Their hiyashi chuka is famous for the uniqueness and great taste. Usually the bowl and toppings for hiyashi chuka is different from ramen, and Isoji's hiyashi chuka is served like a ramen. The sauce is made from pork stock and seafood broth which is amazingly flavorful. The tender sliced grilled pork and soft-boiled egg on the top are great too. 940 yen.
