大つけ麺博 (2017 Grand Tsukemen Fest)

大つけ麺博 2017

The Grand Tsukemen Fest did something great this year. They dropped the price of bowls to 500 yen, and they halved the portions. This meant that I could roll in with a couple of friends each week (the event lasted 5 weeks, with different shops each time) and easily try all nine bowls.

Not only was this great, but I think this was the best ramen event in terms of taste that I have ever been to. Usually, eating ramen outdoors in a plastic bowl means a very substandard bowl, but the Grand Tsukemen Fest delivered this time.

Every year in October. Mark your calendars. For 2018, I am going to try and get some overseas shops to participate.
