A couple of weeks ago, he mentioned that one of his co-workers loves tsukemen. Since then, I had been craving for tsukemen. Unfortunately, he doesn’t care about ramen or tsukemen. Every time I ask to go to a ramen shop, he says “Nah.”
However today, somehow, he offered going to get tsukemen for lunch. I asked, “Why suddenly?” He said, “Because you say you want tsukemen every day!” “Oops, really?” “Yeah.”
So we went Tsujita Annex. I have had tsukemen at Tsujita LA a few time and know it is very delicious, but wanted to try a new one.
Since we didn’t like the ramen here, I was a little worried. But, he seemed to enjoy it. I think it is tasty too. Actually, red spice is a nice accent after having plain broth.
I asked “soup wari” adding broth to dipping sauce, so you could enjoy as ramen broth. When sipping the broth, I realized that I like Tsujita’s tsukemen much better than this. The difference is Tsujita’s broth has seafood flavor with nice umami, but Annex’s was kind bland and too greasy.
