'Marusho' in Tokyo: try yakisoba made with housemade noodles!
Marusho in Bunkyo ward has got to be one of the best places in Tokyo to have yakisoba. It offers 16 kinds of delicious yakisoba dishes made with noodles that are made on the spot.
Feel free to follow favy!
The first thing that surprises many yakisoba fans when they enter this restaurant is the menu and all the variety of yakisoba it features. Normally yakisoba is simply fried noodles with a bit of cabbage and meat. At Marusho however, you can have pitch black squid ink yakisoba, Korean style yakisoba, or deluxe seafood yakisoba, just to name a few of the 16 options.
Marusho Special Sauce Yakisoba (¥630)
Despite the rich variety on the menu, I decided to stick with the classic on my first visit. This is the simple Marusho Special Sauce Yakisoba, and it's apparently also the most popular item on the menu. It's served to you on a pipping hot iron plate.
The noodles are delightfully springy and the special homemade sauce they mix into the noodles when they fry them has a pleasant fragrance that is impossible to resist!
The various toppings and noodles are fried to the point that they're a little burned, but that's intentional as it adds some flavour and scent to the dish.
This cabbage was perfectly cooked and quite sweet too. With good ingredients cooked right, and with that amazing sauce and springy noodles, it's easy to understand why this simple dish is the most popular.
Eat yakisoba to your heart's content with the all-you-can-eat plan
For ¥3,780 (limit of 2h) you can have all the yakisoba that you want with the all-you-can-eat plan. It's a good option if you just can't make up your mind and you want to try several kinds.
Yakisoba has got to be one of the best lesser-known Japanese foods! If you want to discover this classic noodle dish or if you're already a huge fan, Marusho will not disappoint!
