Fuunji (the lucky traveler), located on a side street near Shinjuku’s south exit, always has a line out the door. Don’t let this discourage you (and don’t mind the fact that the line continues inside). This is Tokyo’s best tsukemen (つけめん, ¥750) vendor. The master slow cooks chicken bones for hours before blending the result with choice
Japanese dried fish for a smoky, creamy soup worth the wait.
2-14-3 yoyogi, shibuya-ku.
Open: Mon-sat 11am-3pm & 5-9pm, closed sun & hols. www.fu-unji.com
