Just a reminder to all ramen fans! Pork bone broth is "TONKOTSU", NOT "TONKATSU". TonkAtsu is breaded deep fried port cutlet, not pork bone broth!!
Hint: If a server says Tonkatsu Ramen at a restaurant, don't expect authentic ramen. Ton = Pork🐷, kotsu = Bone🍖

Japanese Soba Noodles Tsuta - Sugamo, Tokyo 🇯🇵 Japanese Soba Noodles 蔦 - 東京都豊島区巣鴨

Tokyo Ramen

I visited the famous Tsuta which received the first ever Michelin star for a ramen restaurant. As they are extremely popular they have a ticket system where you pick up a ticket to reserve a time frame. They start distributing tickets at 7am. My friend and I went around 7:30am and we were lucky enough to get the first slot which is at 11am. We killed some time at a cafe and returned at around 10:30am. There was already a line of the other 11am ticket customers.  At 11am we were able to get in with the first group of customers.

I ordered the Chashu Wonton Shoyu Soba 
The home made noodles were excellent with full of wheat flavor

One of the most famous ramen shops in the world. It's worth a visit if you are in Japan!
