Kitchen Troquet is a
small, ten-seat
restaurant from the
folks who brought us
Buono Buono, a
lunchtime-only
Italian-fusion ramen
shop which was lo-
cated just around
the corner. Here
they've expanded
their horizons to
include pork cut-
lets, omelettes,
ebi-fry and tomato
curry - "food that
both children and
adults can enjoy" as
they helpfully ex-
plain. The main draw
though once again is
their very unusual
take on ramen,
served in a hearty,
tomato-based broth.

"Tomato ramen" comes
in a number of vari-
ations - basic pomo-
doro; spicy arrabbi-
ata, tomato-miso,
bolognese, cheddar-
cheese, four-cheese,
and a few seasonal
specials. The four-
cheese ramen is
practically a meal
in a bowl, incorpo-
rating a hefty por-
tion of noodles,
chunks of chicken
white meat, a
caprese-inspired
layer of mozzarella
and pesto, and a
sprinkling of rocket
leaves. The broth
(it's hard not to
think of it as pasta
sauce) is thick,
chunky, and rich in
umami, with a subtle
smoky flavor.

Noodles can be or-
dered in either a
linguini-like thin
size or a thicker,
flatter formation.
Ramen is priced from
Y780-1280 per bowl,
and a small bowl of
garlicky risotto is
available as a side
dish for Y250. Other
side dishes include
an excellent egg-
plant salad (Y750)
and several other
vegetable dishes.
