On rainy days don't you just crave for a stew served in hot stone pot? The extensive menu at Tokyo Sundubu offers a wide variety of sundubus from seafood, meat to vegetable.

Sundubu is a delicious and nutritious tofu stew, so soft and silky that you can literally slurp up. Choose your flavour on top of the basic stew that already has vegetables, clams, chicken in it. I had the 5 vegetables which are sweet corn, bamboo shoots, lotus roots, cabbage and okra, that enhanced the sweetness of the soup. The bright red colour of the stew, due to the capsaicin from the red pepper seasoning of the soup base, looked intimidating but it definitely was appetizing as it bubbles so vigorous when served. Also it's topped with a raw egg. Capsaicin is actually nutritious as it enhances metabolism.

Get to customize the soup base in the way you want it; Japanese miso, non-spicy or salt and ginger, which was the one I had, but I couldn't really taste any ginger flavour, as the seasoning of the soup itself was too strong. You could also choose the level of spiciness, I had the singapore standard at level 3 out of 4, but still rather manageable for someone who doesn't really take spiciness that well. There's also instructions to teach you how to eat it in the correct way with the namuru (side vegetable dish)!
