Abura soba – a new Tokyo signature dish? It’s all about the noodles!

Second year, School of International Liberal Studies

Tokyo Menchintei’s noodles, fresh cooked with your order, are tastiest when eaten while still piping hot. Their especially springy medium-thick noodles go well with the rich soy sauce and sesame oil-based sauce. Adding the house vinegar and chili oil to taste whet’s the appetite and creates a wonderful smell. You can also add Tokyo Menchintei’s garlic sauce or extra spicy “doro togarashi” (thick red pepper sauce) for a different flavor. Interestingly, the current manager was actually a regular customer ten years ago. Super sizing is free and the 4-tama “oni-mori” (“demon-size helping”) is just ¥1,000. Thanks to its lack of broth, abura soba is actually lower in calories than ramen. It’s perfect for health-conscious people.
