Have a tip for a successful Ramen noodle experience?

Doing Tsuke-men Right

Tsuke-men is a style of ramen where the noodles are served on the side of the soup broth, which tends to be thicker than the typical ramen broth.

When ordering Tsuke-men, there are a variety of ways you can order the noodles.

First you can order your noodles thin, or hoso-men, or thick, futsuu, or normal, and futomen, or thick. This is entirely up to your personal tastes.

Second, you can order the hotness of the noodles. Futsuu is typically cold, and I personally don't like it. I typically order atsu-mori, or hot noodles. This leads to a more enjoyable ramen experience because the soup and noodles are warm throughout the meal. There is another option, oyu-mori, where the noodles are kept in hot water next to the broth. I found the experience too watery, but some may like it.
