Of course, ramen is very popular in Japan, but tsukemen is also quite well known.
Ramen are noodles served together in a soup, while Tsukemen, on the other hand, is enjoyed by dipping separately served noodles into the soup.
How about trying this healthy alternative to ramen? It is sure to catch you off-guard with its charm.
The simple but deep and sour taste of the soup, served with plenty of meat, will draw you in.

This is a famous restaurant with a lot of support.
The noodles are springy in texture and go down smoothly. The soft slices of roasted pork and the many other ingredients seem to melt in the thick, fish-flavored soup.
Heated stones are thrown into the soup so as to keep your meal hot until the end.
Use the skipjack tuna dashi on the table to add a simple flavor to your dish.
