Best homemade stock in a Japanese restaurant?

treestonerivershrub | Apr 8, 2012 04:25 PM

I'm looking for Japanese restaurants that take the trouble to make delicious, homemade stock for their soups. I know there must be places in Manhattan that do this, but I have had no luck finding them. Everyone seems to take short cuts, thinking that no one notices the difference, but I make broth and stock all the time and make dashi from scratch regularly, so I am pretty picky about what constitutes a good soup.

Samurai Mama, in Williamsburg, is the only restaurant so far I've been able to find that does a proper, nutrient-dense, complex tasting, soul-warming homemade stock...but with all the great Japanese restaurants (and plenty of Japanese people), especially in Midtown area, there have to be places I've overlooked.

So please, enlighten me!
