大勝軒 yamagishi
Mr. Yamagishi is called "The God of Ramen" and majority of ramen shop owners will agree he actually is. He invented whats called Tsukemen (dipping cold noodles into hot ramen soup) in 1961 and has shared his recipe with anyone who wanted to work for him or even visit for a couple of hours at his famous shop in Higashi Ikebukuro called Taishoken.

One of his first apprentice's opened up a shop not too far away at Takinogawa, which is called Taishoken Takinogawa. Taishoken Takinogawa's soup has a little more punch than its master's, which I personally like better. There are a couple of Taishoken's around where we live, but we always drive 90 min to eat here instead.

At all Taishoken's, tsukemen is actually called Morisoba. The soup has some sugar & vinegar in it, which is not common for ramen soup. Also, you can have the noodles hot if you prefer, but most people do order the noodles cold. The portions are huge and at the end they will add some hot broth to your soup so you can drink it all.

Regular ramen is available as well, but 90% of the customers order morisoba. They also have a great side dish called Menma Chashu (seasoned bamboo shoots with roast pork) which we always order and take out.

Taishoken Takinogawa isn't in the most convenient location, so if its your first time to ever have Taishoken's tsukemen, you can try the main shop first at Higashi Ikebukuro or other locations in Roppongi, Shibuya, Ueno, Meguro and etc. Every shop tastes a little different from each other, but if you want a little more punch in your soup, do try Tahishoken Takinogawa, its our favorite location by far.

This is not Takinogawa location, its the Higashi Ikebukuro location featuring Mr. Yamagishi.
