Introducing the Ramen Ron x Mōdan Tsukemen Set 

The Ramen Ron x Mōdan Tsukemen Set features two of the most beloved Japanese dishes: Tsukemen and Karaage. 


Tori Gyokai Tsukemen, a hearty bowl of thick noodles is topped with succulent chashu pork, menma bamboo shoots, a ramen egg, and nori. The noodles are served with a rich and flavorful dipping broth of pork, ‘silky fowl’, and bonito with steamed gyoza. The rich broth gives the dish a deep and complex flavor, the bonito flakes add a touch of umami, while the menma bamboo shoots add a bit of crunch.

On the other hand, Karai Karaage with Tsukemono is a crispy and savory chicken bun stuffed with spicy fried chicken and Japanese pickles. The pickles add a refreshing crunch to the dish, while the karaage chicken is juicy and flavorful. The chicken is marinated in a blend of spices and then fried until golden brown. The tsukemono, also known as Japanese pickles, is a mixture of cucumber, daikon radish, and onions.

How to indulge in Tsukemen Delight 

Step 1: Take a quick photo. Pinch a bite's worth of noodles with your chopsticks, dip two-thirds of the way in the broth, and gently swirl around to coat evenly. 


Step 2: Lift the noodles out, slurp, and enjoy! Repeat and enjoy until your soup turns lukewarm. 


Step 3: Ask your server for a ‘yaki-ishi’. Carefully add the hot stone to your soup, and enjoy your hot and revived Tsukemen! 


Step 4: An option. When your broth is almost gone, ask for extra Ukokkei Broth to savor every last drop
