A Different Dip
Tsukemen so slurp worthy
At shop GoJiro
As I looked up from my seat, I spotted a black and white portrait of who I believe to be a young Kazuo Yamagishi, the inventor of Tsukemen and founder of the Taishoken chain of ramen shops in Japan.
I took this as a good sign. I had specifically returned to Ramen GoJiro for their tsukemen. When I first visited, the shop was only selling their gatsuri ramen with its bounty of bean sprouts. However given Menya Kouji affiliations with the inventor of dipping ramen, Yamagishi san, I was curious how GoJiro’s tsukemen would be. The other Menya Kouji outlet, Ramen Butcher, serves a distinct and tasty seafood based version.
