Nagi Nicai is a very relaxing place in the evenings. Almost like an izakaya. But for lunch, it's a busy tsukemen shop.

All they have on the menu is tsukemen. You can choose regular noodles, or the shops homemade momen. Feeling adventurous, both Daniel and I went with the unknown.

A nice touch is the bowl of pickled ginger to cleanse your palette.

I had the meat version, with an excellent piece of grilled chicken.

The momen noodles are wide and long. It's like eating lasagna noodles. A unique bowl indeed.

The taste was good, but a bit hard to eat. If I came back for lunch I'd get the regular noodles.
