Tsukemen is a popular noodle dish consisting of ramen noodles and a separate bowl of soup. Tsuke means dipping and men means noodle. The dish was invented about 50 years ago after ramen became very popular. The noodle is a little thicker than a typical ramen noodle. The noodles are typically served cold, while the soup is typically served hot. The reason is because cold noodles are more elastic than hot noodles. The soup is also thicker than standard ramen soup. If you prefer elastic noodles and thicker soup to ordinary ones, please try Tsukemen!
