Rokurinsha (Tokyo Station) – Stunning Tsukemen

Rokurinsha – Introduction

Rokurinsha at Tokyo Station has queues lining up prior to opening time for a reason – the tsukemen is some of the best in town. Beautiful, chewy noodles served with sliced pork, deeply-flavourful stock and a topping of bonito power makes for a very satisfying lunch.

Get there before 11am to ensure a good place in the queue. When the doors open and you enter the small space there is a ticket machine just inside the door where you make your selection. We ordered the tsukemen with extra egg (tomago). The egg was cooked to the soft-boiled stage with the yolk still runny – perfect!

But it was the quality of the noodles that impressed us the most. They were firm and chewy – just like they should be. The broth was complex with a slightly gelatinous texture that allowed it to coat the noodles and cling to them.

When we finished the noodles they refreshed our broth and brought out a spoon so that we could savour the soup by itself.
This is an excellent food experience.
