Ramen Tsurumusha

At Ramen Tsurumusha, the vibe is toned way down. The slurping of steaming ramen is set to a soundtrack of jazz, and the staff at this counter-seating only shop are studious and reserved — the ramen does the talking. The emphasis is on the stock, the noodles and the sparse accompaniments. The house ramen and wafū ramen (Japanese-style ramen) are both prepared with high-quality stock. For the house ramen, pork bones, vegetables and a whole chicken from Mount Daisen are combined to make an exquisite and lightly chicken-flavored broth.
