[Tokyo] Sabouru 2 (さぼうる 2): The Establishment in Jimbocho Renowned for Its Nostalgic Flavors, Particularly Its Classic, Mountainous Servings of Spaghetti


Taste the Legend: Sabouru 2 – A Hidden Gem in Jimbocho Alley

Located within the labyrinthine alleys of Tokyo’s historic Jimbocho district lies a culinary haven known as “Sabouru 2.” This quaint eatery, famous for its towering stacks of Napolitan Spaghetti, beckons both locals and travelers alike to indulge in its unique charm and mouthwatering dishes. Unlike its predecessor, Sabouru 1, which caters to café-style cravings, Sabouru 2 focuses on delivering a full-fledged dining experience that leaves taste buds tingling and hearts content. Here, tradition meets innovation as expertly boiled spaghetti takes center stage, showcasing the epitome of Western-style cuisine.


Despite its undeniable popularity, Sabouru 2’s intimate setting, reminiscent of a cozy mountain lodge, does come with a caveat. The high demand has led to a bustling atmosphere, with a slightly cramped interior detracting just a tad from the overall ambiance. But fear not, for what it lacks in space, it more than makes up for in flavor. The towering Napolitan dish has garnered rave reviews from all corners of the culinary world. But that’s just the beginning. Sabouru 2 boasts an array of mouthwatering options, from hearty meat sauce spaghetti to succulent pork ginger stir-fry served with rice and soup, tantalizing hamburg steak, and fragrant curry.


Sabouru 2 is renowned for its generous servings. Dishes Japan ordered the meat sauce spaghetti, which arrived in an oversized portion, ensuring that every craving is satisfied. And here’s a little secret not mentioned on the menu: you can opt for “slightly less” or “less” servings, although even the latter is comparable to the regular serving size elsewhere. The richness of the minced meat harmonizes perfectly with the tanginess and sweetness of the tomato sauce, transporting diners back to a time when meals were crafted with care and tradition.
