Mitsuyado Sei-Men


After my first experience, I had to go back. In the beginning, I was a little iffy about the Yuzu dipping broth. 

I have never tried Yuzu but I know that it is a citrus fruit. So having that in broth seemed strange to me. But then again, we do squeeze lime into Tom Yum soup and that it awesome, right? 

This time I made sure to order the Marutoku and Half Boiled Egg which is tsukemen with all the fixings.


I decided to give cold noodles a try and it was alright because it is eaten dipped into the hot broth.


I was tempted to order the large portion (seeing how much I enjoyed the tsukemen the last time) but I was afraid it might be too much (and I was right), so I stuck to regular.


The proteins consist of 2 modest slices of oinks and an egg (with the yolks set and not runny as it should be). In addition to that, there is a small portion of crunchy beansprouts, cabbage and two pieces of seaweed.


The Yuzu dipping broth was a revelation. It was robust and the Yuzu enhanced the flavors without overpowering it. 

Can you see the orange bits of Yuzu in the broth?
There was a smoky undertone to the broth that I loved which reminded me of smoked sausages. This dipping broth is sublime, like nothing I have ever tasted before. Highly recommended!


The dashi stock is stored in the stainless steel flask.
At the end of my meal, there was some broth leftover. I know that the broth is not meant for drinking because it would be too concentrated and salty. But what the heck, it was so good I just had to sip it. It was not too salty for me (which says a lot about my salt intake) and I went ahead and finished the whole lot.

Apparently, you are supposed to dilute the broth with some dashi stock before drinking. I saw a couple at the next table do that. Maybe next time that's what I should do as well.


I was very satisfied and satiated. It was a very good meal and these people will see my face very often hee..hee...

  2. The Yuzu sounds like very good dipping. Hmm. I am not into citrus but you convinced me to try Yuzu.

  3. Haha, Sean did advise to dilute the broth with water before drinking it (you must have missed out that comment but if there's dashi stock, even better). I'd probably enjoy this one since it has yuzu. ^_* Since you enjoyed tsukemen so much, you can try a different one for the next two weeks though some felt that their tonkotsu ramen was better! ;D

    1. Maybe wait till the hype dies down. Last week I was there at 6pm for an early dinner and within a short while, the place filled up and a queue formed outside. The yuzu broth is very good, you must try it.
