つけ麺ちっちょ極 Tsukemen Chiccho: healing tsukemen with a bite

This is my favorite tsukemen (dip style ramen) in Shibuya, Tsukemen Chiccho. It takes about 10~15 minutes from Shibuya Station on foot.

This was my first bowl that had citrus squeezed on the noodles. You can even squeeze extra sudachi on the noodles. I thought it was unusual at first, but the sweetness of the tonkotsu-gyokai (pork and brine) broth and the freshness of the citrus go very well together. One of those bowls you enjoy til the end.

Chiccho's bowl isn't extraordinary, but perhaps because I was really struggling with job hunting at the time, this ramen really healed me.

At that moment, it was a lovely little shop. The wait staff were all nice to me and my friends, and we could enjoy a fugitive moment away from tiring job hunting.
