Rokurinsha 六厘舍, Tokyo Skytree, Soramachi, Tokyo

Rokurinsha became quite popular after David Chang featured it in "The Mind of a Chef".
I've never tried tsukemen before and it got me really intrigued. 
We attempted to try it at their branch in Tokyo Ramen Street but it had a ridiculously long queue and we didn't want to wait. This time though we found a way to beat the hungry crowd! Yehey! We opted to try their branch in Tokyo Skytree. We arrived pretty early, there was no queue and we were all very hungry. You just need to order through the machine, choose the type of soup you want and add whatever side dishes that tickles your fancy
Then grab a seat and wait for your order to arrive.
Here's how to eat Tsukemen, the noodles are served separately from the broth
then dip the noodles into the broth and start slurping that delicious bowl of ramen!
 The soup is so rich and very flavourful. That was really satisfying. Nom!

You can choose to add these items to your order.
shrimp flavoured oil
salt-preserved seasoned bamboo shoots
shrimp-flavoured savoury red pepper
roasted pork fillet (char siu)

My Tsukemen with shrimp-flavoured oil & shrimp-flavoured savoury red pepper. 
That was very delicious.

The noodles and soft boiled egg were in one bowl and broth served separately in another bowl.

  1. Love Rokurinsha's niboshi pork dipping broth! So glad there's one in Haneda Airport too.

    1. You know Suze, maybe someone would like to organise a Japan food crawl? hihi Can you imagine? That would be so fun!

  3. This tsukemen looks awesome. I wonder how annoyed the locals get when these awesome eats get international exposure. lol

    1. hahaha Good news is, I don't think they'll ever run out of awesome places to eat in Japan. Kanazawa has fewer tourists, we can have the place all for ourselves. ;-) lol
