Brisket Tsukemen Returns February 8 at Ramen Tatsu-Ya
Ramen Tatsu-Ya (1722 California Street) is bringing back one version of its celebrated barbeque ramen, Brisket Tsukemen, on Monday, February 8 from 11 a.m. until sold out, exclusively for to-go via online orders at https://www.tatsu-ya.com/.
The dish is composed of a smokey condensed pork bone broth flavored with Texas chili oil, cumin, onions and scallions and dotted with Kemuri Tatsu-Ya brisket chunks. The accompanying thick-gauge noodles will come topped with pickled jalapeño, ajitama, nori and a lime wedge. It’s a rich, mildly spicy, slightly sweet dish that joins Japanese and Texas traditions. The price of the featured menu item is $18.
Originating in Tokyo, Tsukemen is a type of ramen consisting of noodles meant to be dipped into broth, versus a bowl of noodles fully immersed in broth. Ramen Tatsu-Ya’s always-available version of tsukemen features broth with chunks of chashu (braised pork belly).
