First off, there is a eatery called Men Ippai that opened in 2010. It is the most famous representative in all of Tsukamoto. Usually, this place opens at 11 a.m., but the day we went, which was at the end of October, it opened at 11:30 a.m. (They are suffering due to shortage of employees)
(Side Note: We got permission for photography.)
The moment they opened, a row of nine seats at the counter table got occupied and there were many people waiting in line outdoors.
This place does not have a food ticket, so we need to pay when we order. Here is the menu.
As we waited for a little while, the ramen we ordered before the restaurant opened came. This time we ordered, Kitakata style soy sauce flavored ramen and Tokyo style soy sauce based tsukemen (dipping noodle).
Kitakata style soy sauce flavored ramen
The soup has a light taste of seafood, and the scent arouses appetite. The flat homemade noodles were munchy as well. You can order the noodles at a hundred grams, a hundred fifty grams, two hundred grams, and two hundred fifty grams.
Tokyo style soy sauce based tsukemen (dipping noodle)
This soup also has a light flavoring of seafood, and you can eat the soup as well. You can order the noodles at a hundred fifty grams, two hundred grams, two hundred fifty grams, and three hundred grams.
If you walk a hundred fifty meters left along Hanshin Highway No.11 Ikeda line from Tsukamoto Station west exit, there is the restaurant along Himejima Road.
If you want to go by car, you may want to park at Times Tsukamoto across Himejima Road.
Please stop by! Thanks for reading!
