Ebi Tori Menzo

A new shop in Sakaisuji Honmachi opened. It's called Ebi Tori Menzo, or "shrimp and chicken noodle warehouse". It was a tough choice between the shrimp tsukemen and chicken shio, but I was in a tsukemen mood so I went with the former.


The Bowl
The soup here was a thick, orange paste, flowing with shrimp, which went well with the square, grainy noodles. But that wasn't the only way to enjoy the broth. There was a baguette for dipping, a chunk of chashu, and a smorgasbord of vegetables. With the potato, tomato, lemon, and greens mixed in, the meal changed into a vegetable potage with shrimp notes. I love when a bowl gives itself new flavors as it goes on, and this was quite a transformation.


Would I Go Again?
Yes. I have to try the chicken, after all.


Should You Go?
