Menya Chika

It had been a while since I had been in the greater Tenma area. My friend and I met up to go walking around on a Sunday night. We decided to make our destination the delicious-looking but far out Menya Chika. Their main dish is a shio tsukemen, which we both, perhaps foolishly, ordered in large size.

The Bowl
The broth was light and salty, with pieces of fried garlic floating in it. And also salt. A lot of salt. There were a few slices of decent chashu, and the egg and long noodles were pretty good, but what stood out most was the saltiness of the whole thing. Even the wari-soup required a chaser of water.


Would I Go Again?
Too salty.


Should You Go?
Nah, there are other good shops in the area though.
