Kokoro No Aji Seimen | 心の味製麺 平井店
Style: Tonkotsu Gyokai Tsukemen
Bowl to Crush: Tokusei Noukou Tonkotsu Gyokai Tsukemen | 特製濃厚豚骨魚介つけ麺
Kokoro No Aji Seimen is a spin-off creation from Tomita-san, master of the acclaimed Tomita in Matsudo. The taste here hews closely to original shop, but the tonkotsu gyokai soup is just slightly watered down (in a good way!).
Tomita's soup is incredibly rich and bold. Ramen heads go nuts for it, but some novices and lighter eaters can find it overwhelming. The bowl at Kokoro is brighter and more accessible. You could take your whole family here and everyone would enjoy it. There are 23 seats and spacious table seating.
As with all Tomita-san productions, all of the ingredients – noodles, pork, egg, etc. – are carefully sourced and immaculately presented. Ramen is on the menu, but the tsukemen is the way to go.
