A Tsukemen restaurant in the center of "Teramachi Kyougoku Shopping Street," 5 minutes' walk from the Shijou Kawaramachi crossing in Kyoto's business district. "Tsukemen" is a zarusoba-like dish of noodles dipped into soup, which is served in a separate bowl. The noodles are ramen noodles. Serving "bonito" and "Saikyou miso" flavored tsukemen as well as others, the restaurant is loved by local businessmen and students for its rich and large portions.
A rich soup infused with bonito and shoyu flavors. Despite being a seafood dish, it doesn't have a "fishy" smell, so is recommended for people who dislike fishy foods. The noodles are think and chunky, mixing well with the rich soup.
We recommend leaving some soup behind when you finish eating your noodles; if you do, you can order Shime Meshi! Shime Meshi is rice and eggs dropped into your soup, mixed, and enjoyed together. The rich soup and piping hot rice are the perfect pairing.
Based around Kyoto's famous "Saikyou miso," these Tsukemen have a Ra-yuu accent and a creamy flavor. When you hear the words "Tan tan men," you might be forgiven for thinking the dish is spicy, but in fact it's perfect for those who aren’t so good with spiciness thanks to its sweet and mild "Saikyou miso."
If you've eaten half your meal and you feel like changing it, help yourself to a couple of drops of the Vinegar & Garlic on your table. The flavor of your soup will change and you'll be able to enjoy a whole new flavor experience!
If you speak to the staff in English, they will hand you an English menu, so ordering should be easy. First pick your variety of tsukemen, followed by the amount of noodles you'd like, and you're done! Tsukemen soup is richer than that of regular ramen, so be careful not to overdo it when you're dipping your noodles. We recommend dipping only a little of your noodles in the soup at first.
