This fall, Ippudo has come out with a new addition to their menu, Atsumori Tsukemen. We’ve mentioned a chriashi tsukemen before in our Ippudo x Engineered Garments post, but this time we’re introducing a dish readily available to the public. Ippudo is one of the few ramen shops in New York City to serve tsukemen style noodles, and in our opinion one of the best!
So what is tsukemen exactly? Tsukemen is a dipping style noodle dish, where extra thick noodles are dipped in a rich broth concentrate. Imagine cold soba noodles but with ramen noodles and ramen broth. Ippudo’s version, Atsumori tsukemen is a blend of sea and citrus. The broth consists of kelp and konbu-cha with a delightfully fresh hint of yuzu. One great thing about this dish is the both and noodles are served hot but separate, allowing for one to enjoy fresh firm noodles that don’t turn soft or soggy.
Head over to Ippudo’s uptown or downtown location for some seriously fresh tsukemen, the wait won’t disappoint!
