Menya Itto: Tokyo's Best Ramen and Tsukemen

by Yuri

Menya Itto has ranked no. 1 in Tabelog Japan's ramen listing of 2013. However, Japanese rankings are so fast-paced that sometimes they become unreliable and easily outdated. Despite this, it is never a wrong decision to try out what Menya Itto has to offer, right?

 

Similar to the other popular ramen restaurants in Tokyo, Menya Itto offers both ramen and tsukemen. Their signature dish is the Seafood Tsukemen, which by the name itself, is dipping noodles in a rich seafood soup. If you order any of the shop's tsukemen, you can have refills of your dipping soup free of charge!

 

In their meat ramen variations, the chashu is soft, thin, and looks like some kind of "chicken ham". The soup and herbs used in their ramen taste so well together it's worth every penny you pay for. Menya Kisso wouldn't be in top of the rankings if not for their really delicious ramen. Although the line is always long so you might as well prepare yourself for a long wait if you intend to taste some good Tokyo ramen.

One of the drawbacks of a famous ramen house is a long queue. With the number of locals and tourists wanting to try the famed tsukemen of Tokyo, there is no wonder the shop would be full at any time of the day.
