Ejo #63 – Drunk In….. Tokyo (Rokurinsha Tokyo)

DRUNK IN….. TOKYO
ROKURINSHA TOKYO

This is no regular noodle joint. First of all it’s located in the basement of Tokyo Station in a section called Tokyo Ramen Street (and it’s not really easy to find – go to an information booth to get detailed directions). Secondly, they don’t serve regular ramen. This place specialises in tsukumen dipping noodles that arrive in a separate bowl to the thick, delicious pork bone broth. The noodles here are the star of the show – thick, chewy and scrumptious. They don’t take reservations and there’s usually a 10-30 minute wait in line, but it’s worth it.

We weren’t drunk here (I’m not even sure if they serve booze). But we were very hungover from karaoke crazy fun times the night before and eating these noodles made everything a WHOLE lot better.

MUST HAVES: Added ajitama (whole boiled egg) and buta hogushi (shredded pork).

Nom nom - look at how chewy those lovely hangover cure noodles look!!!
