Concierge.com's insider take:

Some might call it a scam: taking oden—the hodgepodge stew that's served at ramshackle street stalls and slurped up by drunken students and salarymen on cold winter nights—moving it indoors, and charging an arm and a leg. But Takocho's spin on this seaweed-based broth—filled with octopus tentacles, hard-boiled eggs, fried tofu, fish cakes, and other goodies and served with a generous dollop of fiery mustard and a fistful of chopped scallions—is worth the up-charge: The broth is heavenly, and the ingredients high-quality and varied. Get there early: The counter-only restaurant fills up quickly, the choicest ingredients disappear fast, and the competition among regulars can be brutal.

Open Tuesdays through Sundays.
