Titan Tsukemen from Tonkotsu Ikkyu

Tonkotsu Ikkyu, titan tsukemen

It's been quite a while since I've eaten at Tonkotsu Ikkyu. Since the blueberry bowl. Since the spinach bowl.

Today was something they called Titan Tsukemen - presumably 'titan' refers to the size of the large slice of aburi charshu that is served with the noodles.

Didn't taste bad at all. I liked the bonito flavour from the dipping broth punctuated by bits of chopped negi. The chew on the noodles were quite on point. Egg was more cooked than I was hoping for. The yolk wasn't well done but was definitely way past the molten stage. That charshu - pretty tender and a little smokey. Not exactly the fall apart in the mouth type though. All the richness did get to me a little at the end because of the size.
