Tenma is an area with a ton of ramen shops and other restaurants, but for some reason I don't find myself there as often as I should. On one random weeknight, though, I was hankering for tsukemen, and discovered online the shop Tenshiro, in Tenma. Tenshiro is actually a sister shop to Menya Teru, and that was all I needed to know to decide to check it out.


The Bowl
Tenshiro makes its broth from a combination of two soups: one with chicken and pork, and the other with fish. The fish stood out: the broth was thinner than average, and the seafood essence was stronger than its umami, but the combination didn't work quite as well as other similar examples. The noodles, fatty chashu, and egg were all fairly standard but pretty decent; the main component that stood above the rest was the unique sudachi vinegar on the side. It was light and refreshing compared to the heavy tsukemen.


Would I Go Again?
I felt the same way about Teru's tsukemen - it's not bad, but there are better places to go.


Should You Go?
