Today, I visited “Minami Ikebukuro Taishoken” in Ikebukuro. It was located around 7~8 minutes walk from East outlet of Ikebukuro station. This ramen shop was, like “Ochanomizu Taishoken” which I had introduced in May, a successor of Mr. Kazuo Yamagishi, an originator of ‘TSUKEMEN’ who died this April.
I arrived there around 12:10. The shop was almost full. I bought a ticket of “Morisoba(￥750)” and waited for 7~8 minitues before Morisoba came. I had a first bite and noticed that I forget to take a picture.
Noodle was middle thick and straight. Soft noodle. Soup based on soy sauce was sweet and sour. Both noodle and soup were Taishoken taste. Soup was a bit thicker and sweeter than one at “Ochanomizu Taishoken”.
Quantity of noodle was more than one at normal tsukemen, but I could enjoy to the end as I experienced at “Ochanomizu Taishoken”. It seemed I gradually became Taishoken lover.
