Tsujita (つじ田): Unanimously Embraced Tsukemen Haven in Japan

Unparalleled Delicacy of Tokyo’s Pioneering Dipping Noodles

Originating from Tokyo, Tsujita stands as a pioneering force behind the delectable and savory pork bone and seafood dipping noodles. Impeccably crafted, the soup base combines meticulously selected ingredients—such as pork bones, chicken carcass, seafood, kelp, and a variety of vegetables—resulting in a harmonious blend of over ten distinctive components. Tsujita employs specially made noodles, developed in collaboration with Mikawaya Seimen, that cater to both their dipping noodles and ramen dishes. Enhancing the culinary experience is the renowned black seven-spice blend, meticulously created by the esteemed Hararyoukaku. This black seven-spice, following a traditional method passed down through generations since 1704, embodies a true labor of dedication, engaging all the senses and garnering the prestigious recognition of “Supplier to the Imperial Household Agency” during the Meiji and Taisho periods. Far from a mere condiment, it serves as the finest complement, elevating Tsujita’s dipping noodles to unparalleled levels of deliciousness.

Since its establishment in 2005 in Kanda-Ochanomizu, Tsujita has remained at the vanguard of Tokyo’s dipping noodle culture, driven by an unwavering commitment to culinary excellence. Expanding its presence primarily in thriving business districts like Iidabashi and Yaesu, Tsujita’s influence extends not only across Tokyo but also reaches Osaka, Kanagawa, Saitama, and Fukuoka. In 2011, Tsujita embarked on a new chapter, venturing into the United States and successfully establishing the esteemed “Tsujita” brand in Los Angeles, captivating both domestic and international markets.

The philosophy of “Tsukemen-ryugi” is synonymous with Tsujita, an artful approach that guarantees the utmost enjoyment of every tantalizing bite of their dipping noodles. Begin by savoring the dish in its pure form, abstaining from the addition of sudachi citrus or black seven-spice. Once you’ve consumed one-third of the noodles, impart the refreshing essence of sudachi citrus to the remaining portion, ensuring a thorough and balanced amalgamation. For the final portion, bestow upon it the essence of the black seven-spice, elevating the flavor profile to new heights. Finally, should any soup remain, graciously raise your soup bowl and notify the attentive staff, who will gladly provide a replenishment.
