Oh what a beautiful day for slurping. I met my boss in Shimokitazawa for lunch so we could do our occasional ramen shop research. With 10 shops in and around Tokyo, Mitsuyado Seimen is known for making a really good noodle. But it was more than just a good noodle I was after. Mitsuyado has something on the menu that I’ve been dying to try for quite some time now. No, not their natto tsukemen…
Their 濃厚 Cheese Sauce Tsukemen!!
I love cheese, but how would it fair with tsukemen?
I was told to pour the cheese on top of the noodles first before dipping it into my broth. This alone tasted like mac and cheese. Mmmm!
Surprisingly, dipping my cheese-covered noodles into the yuzu-infuzed tsukemen broth tasted amazing. Yes, the noodles were great, but this new experience left me beside myself. I was just about to give up on tsukemen altogether, but now I have faith that there are still some good ones out there.
My boss ordered the Ja-Ja Men.
This tasted great as well.
I wouldn’t mind going back here again. Here’s to a great month. I have a feeling next month may be even better.
