Wow, really good shiru-nashi dan dan men. There was a line forming even before it opened at 11 AM - like an idiot I get there at 11 thinking there won't be anyone there, it's a dan dan men place in ....mata cho. Fairly close to Iwamotocho station on the Toei Shinjuku line and the hotel I now stay at (Comfort Hotel Kanda Tokyo). Basically two dishes available, dan dan men shiru-nashi (with ground pork, dan-dan flavored abura and some nuts, I got that one) and dan dan men shiru-ari, the diners that I saw were about split between the two. This was a really well-balanced set of flavors of the szechuan pepper vs. the oil and nuts and salt. Comes with a side of mapo tofu if you get the set. Stongly recommended if you can take the heat and you are in the area, easy walk from Akihabara or Kanda.
