“Tetus, Tsukemen Restaurant in Shinatatsu at Shinagawa Station.”
It was my last day in this Tokyo Travel, so far, I did not taste the ramen named “Tsukemen”. Thus, this time could be the chance to taste it. I visited “Tetus” for the ramen because that shop was quite famous for the “Tsukemen”.
For your information, Tetsu is a franchise store, so you can find the same food in other places as well.
“Dipping Ramen, Tsukemen”
Tsukemen is a bit of a unique ramen. It is served the noodles and the soup separately. To eat the ramen, you pick up the noodles and dip into the soup.
You can choose between cold and warm noodles before you order. When you order cold noodles, you can dip the noodles into the soup(broth) and then the broth can be cool down. In that case, you can ask for the hot stones to put in to the soup to heat it up.
“If the Soup(Broth) is too salty…”
If you feel that the soup is too salty, you can add up the unsalted broth to your soup. You can find this one on the table.
It was quite interesting ramen. In Japan, you can find many unique ramen, it could be fun to find these special ramens.
However, sadly this restaurant closed permanently. However, you still can find Tetus in other places.
