屯ちん 屯京拉麵 Tonchin Ramen

Went to this newly opened Ramen store in Taipei around 4:00 on a Saturday afternoon and was hoping that we don’t need to line up for it. I must been day dreaming when we arrived we were greeted by a long queue, may be not too long

address : 敦化南路一段187巷36號

No. 36, Lane 187, Section 1, Dūnhuà South Road, Daan District

their line up system is weird, first you need to line up on the left so they can take your name n phone number down then you line up on the right,  even though they took your phone number they are not going to call you so you need to hang around there.

one thing I like visiting ramen store in Taiwan is that they are spacious compare to their stores in Japan.

They have four types of ramen:

tonkotsu (pork bone broth) ramen (Top right)

miso tonkotsu ramen (Top left)

spicy tonkotsu ramen (Bottom right)

fish broth ramen (Bottom left)

and you can addon $70: two more slices of pork, egg and green scallion

 

salad as an addon $50

Veggie miso ramen (Top right)

tonkotsu tsukemen (dipping ramen) (Top left)

spicy tsukemen (dipping ramen) (Bottom right)

fish broth tsukemen (dipping ramen)(Bottom left)

note: their noddles you can choose either large or medium bowl and they are the same size, so for guys can defintely go for large, and for girls may be a medium bowl as I can’t even finish mine.  They are for the same price.

 

cold dish tofu which you can dip soy sauce or vinegar.

 

 

 

 

 

our add-on salad and it is way too salty for me I am going to ask them to separate the sauce if I am going to order it next time.

 

 

 

 

 


bamboo shoots not bad, it has a hint of spiciness to it, it is mixed with soy sauces and seaseme oil.

 

 

 

My friend’s Miso ramen come with the usual toppings: seaweed, sliced pork, bamboo shoots, Tamago (egg with soft yolk), corn and green onion

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is my favorite tonkotsu tsukemen the dipping noodles’ noodles and soup come separately, so that the noodles are chewy all the way.  However, the soup in this branch are not as hot as the one I had in Japan.  The soup’s favor is just right my friend and I almost finish the whole bowl.  The handmade noodles are as good as the one I had in Japan and I would say it is better than Rakumenya 樂麵屋and Kagetsu Arashi らあめん花月嵐拉麵, it’s very al dente and when you dip it into the hot broth, Scrumptious !!!
