Tsukemen TETSU

Every once in a while a bowl from Tokyo makes it down to Kansai. In the Hankyu Sanbangai food court, a tsukemen chain from Tokyo opened up: Tsukemen TETSU. I couldn't make it on the opening day, but just the day after I showed up to try their tsukemen.


The Bowl
This was some Tokyo style gyokai tonkotsu tsukemen, through and through. There are plenty of good bowls in Osaka but sometimes it's good to try one more heavily influenced from the birthplace. TETSU's broth was rich and fishy; not quite as thick nor as sweet as other similar bowls. The fat noodles sparkled in the underground mall's light. A thick piece of chashu bobbed up and down in the soup, but overall its taste was overtaken by the broth.


Would I Go Again?
TETSU was solid, but with so many other tsukemen options around, I don't see myself making another trip.


Should You Go?
This is a good option if you're feeling tsukemen while browsing the Umeda food court.
