Tsukemen noodles in the JR Tokyo Station
My first stop upon arrival in Tokyo was at Rokurinsha. If you have ever watched “Mind of a Chef” with David Chang, then you have probably seen the episode where he goes with Peter Meehan to Tokyo on a ramen eating frenzy. Rokurinsha, a ramen joint tucked away in the JR Tokyo Station serves up some of the best tsukemen available. Tsukemen is a style of ramen where the alkali noodles are served separately from the ramen broth, allowing one to dip and soak the noodles before promptly devouring. This type of noodle is a bit firmer and thicker than your typical ramen noodle, which I prefer. When you visit Rokurinsha, you can expect to get slightly lost trying to find it. You can expect to wait in a long queue. You can expect to order from a vending machine. You can most definitely expect to have one of the richest, most magnificent bowls of ramen ever. Pro-tip: you will find some of the best and most convenient dining options underground. The Japan rail system is filled with impressive eateries.
