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