When I’m in Japan, one of my favourite things to eat is Tsukemen. I have yet to find a version in Vancouver as good as the ones I’ve had in Tokyo, but the one I had at Taishoken comes pretty close!
Seating is very cramped in this small restaurant, so I wouldn’t recommend coming with more than 4 people at one time.
This was so delicious! I asked for the noodles to be served firm and warm, and they were exactly the way I wanted them to be.
The soup was extremely garlicky and not spicy at first, but it really builds! All of the ingredients worked really well together, and the portion size was definitely on the bigger side.
I’m so glad my friend introduced me to this restaurant, because I can see myself coming back again and again for the Tsukemen!
