"All their dishes are great, but their tsukemen dipping ramen is the one that I crave constantly. It makes me wish I had a second stomach so I could eat more of it. It's nicely balanced, heavily seasoned, but perfectly harmonious."
Chef Sarah McIntosh reviews sho-yu ramen (#2 on the menu) at Ramen Tatsu-ya

"The soy sauce-based sho-yu ramen (#2 on the menu) is my go-to at Tatsuya. The broth is rich and the chashu (pork belly) is buttery, fatty goodness. Gotta make sure you get the ajitama (soft-boiled) egg too."
