Looking for some non-sushi recommendations in Tokyo

od_sf | Jun 10, 201703:03 PM     5

Looking for a few recommendations:

- Tempura place, open for lunch, very good but not too hard to book, in the Y8,000 PP range, preferably around Ginza / Shimbashi / Nihonbashi. Kondo is my go-to but looking for other options in case we can't secure a reservation.

- Haven't been in a few years, is Fuku in Yoyogi-Uehara still great? Any other recommendations for yakitori in the Y5,000 PP range around Shinjuku / Shibuya? Not too hard to book, not too fancy but also not sitting on a beer crate type place. English menu or some English (or French) spoken would be a plus.

- Traveling with someone who doesn't eat pork or beef. Any recs for a good tonkatsu place that also offers other items? Ginza Bairin has a good shrimp set. Any others that are recommended?

- Same for ramen, hoping to grab some great tonkostu ramen, but need to find a place that also offers pork-less soup. Any good place that offer both tonkotsu ramen and tori paitan maybe?

Thanks!
