Rokurinsha (六厘舎) - Tokyo Ramen Street, Yaesu, Tokyo

Located at the underground mall linked to the JR Tokyo Station (nearer to the exit of Yaesu), you'll find Tokyo Ramen Street in First Avenue Tokyo Station. You'll always find the longest queue at Rokurinsha and the long lines probably says it all. They are known to be Tokyo's best tsukemen or dipping noodles.

Rokurinsha is famous for it's thick noodles served with dipping sauce which is thick and flavourful. People are known to wait for over an hour for this. We arrived at about 8 pm and as usual the long queue. Gladly, the line moves fast and we went in within an hour!

Ramen dipped isn't popular in Singapore and I know I've to try it when I'm in Japan. And no doubt, Rokurinsha offers the best tsukemen. One of my best meal in Tokyo. Must try!! *

Like the usual eateries in Japan, ordering through the vending machine. There were 3 choices to pick from - Tsukemen (850 yen), Ajitaman Tsukemen w boiled egg (950 yen) & Special Tokusei Tsukemen w full toppings (1,050 yen). We went ahead with their signature dish - Ajitaman Tsukemen at 950 yen. 100 yen more for a perfect boiled egg is so worth it!

Thick and creamy tonkotsu broth made with huge amount of ingredients used, from pork to chicken bones. In the broth were Chashu (pork) slices, seaweed, dried baby sardines, naruto (fish cake) and others which makes the broth so good! The thick noodles goes perfectly well w the broth, giving a pleasant seafood taste!

The only obstacle to beat is the long lines before having an awesome bowl of tsukemen. But I must say, it's definitely worth the wait. Just avoid busy hours as the waiting time can get really long. All in all, one of the must try food in Tokyo - it could your best dipping ramen experience.
