Ramen VS Tsukemen【 Biggest Ramen Festival in Tokyo Week 1】

Yo! What is up, everyone?
I’m here at the 2016 Grand Tsukemen Festival. Every year, October Huge festival. This year, 10 shops each week,for 4 weeks
40 different shops are here in Tokyo, in Shinjuku, show-casing ramen and tsukemen. And yeah, I’m gonna try to crash them all. Let’s do it! Of course, we’ve got everyone’s favorite, MENSHO. So, of course, the longest line is the Koji group. They are kinda famous ramen group connected to Taishoken which is sort of the godfather of Tsukemen. Really old guy, Yamagishi san, who passed away
few years ago but… It’s early in the morning so of course, people who are gonna line up before the event starts are super nerdy about ramen and of course, they’re gonna go to the place where
there is the legit ramen history to it. Alright, here we go! The longest line. This is the popular one but let’s check it out. Really sort of classic Tsukemen that people go for.
Nothing super crazy… but, whoah! Really good noodles! Yeah, so what they did…
Most shops are doing something special for the event So they put some crab in here.
So it’s got a little bit of crab thing going on. It’s nice but this one is super heavy so
if you are planning here and crashing all 10… Good luck! Alright, we got Tsukemen on this side. And we got ramen on this side. Nice! 10 shops, 4 weeks, 40 shops. I don’t know.
I think I can do it! Alright, so the clear winner
in terms of the fandom is the Koji group here. So yeah, super good! Pretty heavy stuff!
We started with it so it’s kinda bad move cause the noodles are mega heavy. But yeah, here is the man. It’s got the spicy miso in there. So come on down here.
You got a week to check it out!

    can I ask: is your ramen adventure and ramen-do session in Tokyo Extra exclusive to each other? Ramen do kinda stopped when you are active here again…

    Can't express how much this makes me miss good ramen. Can you recommend me a decent bowl of ramen here stateside? I've tried Tsujita in LA, and if that's the best the city has to offer we have long way to go!

    Hey man, great videos, made me so hungry! Anyway have you tried this Yuzu ramen stall at Yurakucho? It had a pretty long line when I went there and I find the taste pretty unique! Its in the basement of a mall near the train station.
