Tsukemen(called mori-soba in this shop) with wonton and seasoned egg. Also a slice of pork at the bottom. Wonton is good but pork and egg are so-so. The noodles are cold by default, but you can also choose hot noodles for Tsukemen, which is probably a better idea in this weather. This shop is a branch of the very popular Taishoken in Higashi-Ikebukuro.
中華そば、６３０円。I read scary stories about how this place is no.1 long-queue ramen shop in Japan, so even I have been curious but gosh no way I am going to wait for hours(literally) for a bowl of ramen. But I followed this person’s advice and went just before the shop closed at 3pm(this place doesn’t open for dinner) on a weekday, and we only waited for about 10 minutes. I had the basic ramen, my friend had the tsuke-men, where the soup and ramen are separated. Somehow the tsuke-men’s soup is sweeter. Both are nice. While I never expected myself to understand the hype about this place, my curiosity is satisfied.
