Tsukemen (Dipping Noodle)
The most popular menu item is Tsukemen. The feature of the soup is a thick, thick broth. The soup is made from chicken that has been thoroughly prepped and cooked only with water, with no extra ingredients. The rich chicken flavor and the soup’s high viscosity are evident from its appearance alone. Despite the richness of the soup, it is not heavy and has a refreshing aftertaste, and the homemade flat noodles are well mixed with the soup.
