Tsushima Wednesday Ramen Special
47th St between Lex & 3rd Ave
Most people ordered the ramen special. But a lot of others were also ordering sushi rolls. Why??
The noodles were slightly chewy, very delicious. The broth, though clear, had a lot of depth to it. I hate saying crap like that as it sounds pretentious, but it's true. It was meaty-seafoody-tasty-delicious but not so pronounced in any one of those, except the tasty & delicious part. I could not finish the entire bowl, shamefully. I drank as much of the broth as possible, and though it wasn't that salty I got very thirsty.
They served quite a big bowl of ikura (salmon roe) don (over rice) on the side. Obviously I couldn't finish this either but it was very fresh and, as Ricky speculated, probably cleaned in-house. When they have sat around for a bit (if you've ever bought them at Sunrise Mart you'll know what I'm talking about) they are a little sticky.
On Fridays they have a shoyu ramen special, which is my favorite kind of ramen. Will definitely have to come back and try it out. And I'll be using Chikubu as my standard! Cry cry cry...
