Tsukemen Man

As a continuation of cherry blossom season, I took an all-too-rare visit to Kyoto to go to another hanami event. With an opportunity like that, though, I decided I needed to stop and get a bowl of ramen on my way there. Nearby Demachiyanagi there's not a ton of shops; but there is one I've had my eye on: Tsukemen Man. They embraced their name and offered up a specially made rich gyokai tonkotsu tsukemen.


The Bowl
The broth was a mostly by-the-numbers thick gyokai mix; though it was a bit too rich and salty. The noodles made up for that as they were thick and shiny, easy to pick up yet resilient enough to take in a lot of soup and add a light egg flavor of their own. The chashu was good, though like the soup too, a bit salty, and over time it became harder to finish the bowl.


Would I Go Again?
I'll try another place in Kyoto next time I'm there.


Should You Go?
If you want some tuskemen in Demachiyanagi, otherwise go somewhere else.

In the span of some years, MakerBot had to pull off two very completely different coups. It needed to introduce tens of millions of individuals to the wonders of 3D printing, after which convince them to shell out greater than $1,000 for a machine. It additionally needed CNC machining to develop the expertise fast sufficient to keep its prospects happy. “We have a machine that makes 3D objects and it’s freaking superior,” Pettis stated giddily from the Ignite NYC stage. By shrinking the expertise inside hulking, $100,000-plus machines into inexpensive desktop packing containers, MakerBot had kicked off a revolution in 3D printing.
