Japanese cuisine recommendations in Tokyo for a particular taste

Hey all, again,

Seems, everyone is sick of me. Cannot blame you.
I will try, anyhow. Looking for Japanese cuisine with some limitations.
So, I am asking for best places for someone with the following tastes.
Not in any true order of exact importance, here we go,

1. Not a huge sushi/sashimi fan
Enjoy it, sometimes, I do not feen for it. Don't care to spend a ton on it, for sure.So if it is 95% as good as the best and half the price(okay, maybe that is tough), let me know. And forget Tsukiji, read the following.
2. No breakfast.
3. Would like to get the "best soba, udon, ramen", yeah, but don't want to be eating starch all the time and I am sure there are too many, etc. and it has been done to death on this board. Would like to know where to get a good fill for meat, fruit, veggies. Yes, I know rice and noodles are staples, I GET IT, but, hopefully, you can see what I am aiming for.
4. Also, please note the prices, I don't need to be going to THE spots and dropping 20k yen every meal. Plus, depending on who I am with or not, I would like to know what I am getting them into(unless, I am paying, then I would like to know what I am getting myself into).
5. I don't booze much, at all. When I go for a great meal, I do wine, sometimes.Will drink more than usual,while there, surely, but do not need to know places that are geared for mostly hitting the tank. Don't get me wrong, if food is great and everyone else is drinking, I am fine with that.

So, hopefully, this gets me some good info. Would like a few "musts" and/or places that are cheaper, to sample the gamut.
Oh, and if reservations are necessary(hopefully not, been a nightmare).

THANKS AGAIN(if anyone responds)
