I had to come here twice in order to try their tantanmen both with and without soup.

The soupless tantanmen is a beautiful bowl. Mix up all the ingredients and it's ready to eat. You can really taste the sweetness of the ground meat and the noodles have a nice, elastic texture to them. They use a bit too much green onion, which irritated my nose.

The regular tantanmen was also very good. The soup is creamy, but too overly so. Personally, I prefer this bowl.
Azabu Juban has luxurious image, but this shop is very welcoming to all stripes of customer.
