5 Restaurants in Nakameguro That Shouldn't be Missed (中目黒)


Looking for a great place to eat in Nakameguro? Here are 5 recommendations from 5 different categories: Cheap and Delicious; Unforgettable Sushi; Washoku; Izakaya; Non-Japanese

Feel free to follow favy!

Cheap and Delicious: Sou (麺屋宗)

Nakameguro is very oshare (おしゃれ=fancy) neighborhood, and it is teeming with expensive fine dining places. However, if you're looking to save some money without sacrificing deliciousness, head to Menya Sou for a bowl of fantastic ramen. Sou offers shio(salt), shouyu(soy sauce), or spicy ramen. You can choose to have standard ramen (shown above), or tsukemen(dipping ramen, shown below). The most popular item is the Tokutei Shio ramen, so this would be a great choice if you are unsure.
Access: 9 minutes walk southeast from Nakameguro Station

Unforgettable Sushi: Takamitsu (鮨尚充)

If you've got 20,000+ yen to drop on a write-home-to-your-family-worthy sushi dinner, make a reservation at Takamitsu. This is one of the top sushi restaurants in Tokyo, and anything you order will be fantastic. If you love uni (sea urchin), this restaurant may be your heaven. Uni of all varieties as far as the eye can see are waiting to be enjoyed.
Access: Located about 10 minutes walking from Nakameguro station. Note: Due to its reputation and popularity, you will probably want to plan far ahead when making a reservation to eat here.

Washoku (Japanese Cuisine): Rakushoku Fujita (楽食ふじた)

For a truly delicious Japanese dining experience in a cozy setting, check out Fujita. This restaurant specializes in seafood washoku. If you aren't very keen on fish, it may not be the right choice for you, but if you love fish, you will love it here.
The easiest way to enjoy a spectacular meal here is to order the おまかせコース(Omakase course), leaving all the decisions to the expert cooks. If you enjoy nihonshu (sake), prepare to be delighted by the nihonshu pairings with your meal.
About 10 minutes walking from Nakameguro station. It is recommended to make a reservation

Izakaya: Kushiwakamaru (串若丸)

This is one of the most popular yakitori izakayas in Nakameguro for good reason; the chicken skewers are SO good! Chicken is the specialty, but you can also get various vege skewers, seafood skewers, and bacon-wrapped skewers (try the cheese-filled green peppers wrapped in bacon, shown below). In addition, there is a pretty standard alcohol menu that is sure to have something for everyone. If you plan to go here for dinner, try to go before 8 pm, otherwise you'll likely have to wait quite a while to get a seat.
Access: 3 minutes walk from Nakameguro Station

Non-Japanese: Rodeo 

Oh my gosh, look at that steak! Yes, it tastes as good as it looks. Serving Italian food and wine, Rodeo is a fantastic medium-price dinner option. The stylish interior features an open kitchen, and great ambiance. Order any of the meat or pasta items and pair it with a wine for an immensely satisfying meal.
Access: 5 minutes walk from Nakameguro Station
