ろく月 (Rokutsuki in Asakusa)

Rokutsuki was awarded the coveted tonkotsu rookie of the year award for 2014. Not a bad way to start your shop!

East Tokyo has always been in the shadow of the west in terms of ramen, so it is good to see a newcomer making a quality bowl.

The ingredients are strictly mukacho, preservative free.

This one almost felt more like a toripaitan, a creamy chicken soup ramen, than a tonkotsu, pork soup. The stinky traces of pork bones were non-existent, and the toppings, though uncommon for this kind of ramen, were fresh and tasty. Worthy of their praise.

Come in the evening and you can try some of their limited offerings. Miso-tonkotsu and a mazesoba were both on offer, and both were on point. Overall, I enjoyed the regular tonkotsu more, but the roasted tomato was a great touch.
