Where to find the spiciest noodles in Tokyo?

Hi everybody,

I've been lurking for awhile and have a pressing question. I want to find a giant bowl of noodles in Tokyo that's so spicy that my lips burn, my face turns red, and I beg for mercy as tears stream down my face. I'm thinking something similar to the bowls of laksa in the food courts in Sydney, or like a really spicy tom yung kung would do. Or ramen I suppose. I've been living in Tokyo for 3 years now and just can't get anything spicy enough. I ask them to kick it up, but usually they sort of throw more of the bland chilis in there, which sort of makes it spicier but not like.. tasty spicy. Am not too keen on Japanese curry although I know that can be done pretty spicy. One time I had a soup that was nicely spiced (still not hot enough though) at a Thai restaurant in a basement in Kabukicho, but I was kinda tanked (as one often is in Kabukicho) and haven't been able to figure out where I was.

Any ideas? Much appreciated!
