There's always a queue for the tsukemen at Michi and it's not due to some passing fad: this is a traditional, greasy variety combining tonkotsu (pork-based) and seafood soups to great effect. Despite the high fat content, the soup tastes mild, almost sweet, and gives off a refined, time-honoured air. The dipping noodles are thick and fluffy, and can be ordered in quantities up to 400g.
A basic order of tsukemen starts at ¥850, but for ¥1,100 you can get your tsukemen with all toppings which range from the standard (egg, chashu pork) to the peculiar (look out for the daily specials), so go ahead and mix freely. The shop is also known for its fruit vinegar, which is served alongside the noodles – it's a great way to change up the flavour of the soup to your liking. This is a dish every tsukemen enthusiast should try at least once.
