きさく (Kisaku in Hiroshima)

きさく

Kisaku was the soupless tantanmen that every random person I spoke with recommended.

A bit out of the way, though easy to get to on Hiroshima's local streetcar.

It barely fits on the official Hiroshima shirunashi tantanmen map.

The menu, like that of any specialty shop, is small. Hot or cold. That's pretty much it. You can get different sizes, and I was the only person who didn't go with the double size bowl.

As always, mix it up. Dry noodles, a little spicy sauce, and some sparse toppings.

To be honest, I wasn't feeling this one. It was cheap and tasty, but I don't think I can recommend anyone who doesn't live in Hiroshima spend the time to make it out here. Most travelers have limited time in this town, and should stick more to the downtown.
