Story & Recommendation
Handmade Tsukemen Noodles and a Fish and Pork Bones Soup
Tsukemen Kirari is a three minute walk away from Keihan Chushojima station. This restaurant is famous for the way they combine fish and pork bones broth in their tsukemen soup. If you haven’t heard of tsukemen before, it is a type of ramen where the noodles and the soup(tsukejiru) come in separate bowls, like zarusoba, soba noodles on a bamboo draining basket. You eat tsukemen by dipping the noodles in the soup. The soup is usually thicker than normal ramen soup. The thing that separates Tsukemen Kirari’s tsukemen from the others is quality. Usually the noodles used in tsukemen are thick, but even among tsukemen noodles, Tsukemen Kirari’s noodles are exceptionally thick. Even though the noodles are really thick, they are not hard or difficult to eat, but, dare I say, form an ultimate harmony between the tsukemen noodles and the soup. The service is sincere and polite, and the feel of the restaurant is nice, but what really impressed me was their passion and devotion to tsukemen. When you look at the waitresses busily taking orders, the serious looks on the cooks’ faces, you will be sure you are getting top-class tsukemen. Tsukemen Kirari is only open from 11:30AM to 14:30PM, and they are closed on Wednesdays and Thursdays, so make sure to check the day and time before you go there.
