A venerable soba joint on Platinum Dōri just a couple of minutes walk from Shirokanedai station, Toshian is both popular and worth a visit.
Lunchtimes are especially busy, and on high days queues are to be expected.
Not a large shop, the interior is traditional and sitting face-to-face with strangers is the norm.
The menu is comprehensive, the service a little brusque, and the food excellent, although the tempura is of the heavy/ oily type rather than the light and crisp variety I’ve come to prefer.
Both the tendon and tempura soba were excellent, the soba being particularly good.
The tamagoyaki, seemingly a dish for which the shop is loved, was fluffy and sweet.
Not the cheapest lunch around, but thoroughly enjoyable.
