Gochisō Tonjiru

Japanese in Shinjuku & Northwest Tokyo

Tonjiru, a home-cooking classic, is a hearty miso soup packed with root veggies (such as burdock root, daikon, potato and carrot) and chunks of pork. At this neighbourhood hangout, styled more like a bar than a restaurant, the pork comes in the form of melting-off-the-bone barbecued spare ribs. Choose between a Kyoto-style light miso or a Tokyo-style dark miso.
