Noodle Bull information
Perfectly attuned to the concrete lines and contours of the 1933 complex, this is possibly Noodle Bull's best opening. If you don't want to celebrate 1933's former employment as a slaughterhouse, the gorgeous and superhealthy sesame-paste noodles (¥32) are the way to go. There's no MSG; you'll have a choice of different thickness of hand-pulled noodles; and the ambience simply oozes with cool panache.
