Best Nabe in Tokyo: Mifune
Take off your shoes beneath the glowering image of Toshiro Mifune and enter a dojo-like world of hanging banners and wooden swords, where all of the dishes aspire to recreate the simplicity and excitement of the food the great actor once loved.
The top pick is the appropriately powerful Spicy Japanese Shabu-shabu Hot Pot, a red pepper dish that will have you coming back for more. Finish it off with free noodles or rice to complete the experience.
