Did we get lucky? We only had to wait two minutes to eat here!

Our friend happens to live right by this popular tsukemen/ramen place so we decided to try it. Fu-unji is famous for their 濃厚鶏白+魚介 soup, a condensed white chicken + fish broth soup (feels heavy on the bonito flavor). Although I’m not typically into fish broths, since their soup is a mixture of both chicken and fish, the fishiness wasn’t as strong as I expected so I surprisingly enjoyed it. The noodles were also very good in both the flavoring and texture.

When you first enter, you will see a machine where you can purchase a ticket based on what you want to eat. Once your turn comes, you will be asked to hand them your ticket and specify the amount of noodles you want.

Your options for noodles are (Same price for all):
– Namimori/並盛 — small
– Chuumori/中盛 — medium
– Oomori/大盛 — large
If you want your noodles to stay warm, you can order them “astumori” but keep in mind that if you are a slow eater, the noodles will elongate.

I ordered the Tokusei Tsukemen (特製つけめん) for 950yen with chuumori noodles. My girlfriend got the regular tsukemen with namimori noodles. The ramen was 700yen which was so/so according to our friend who always orders the tsukemen here. If you come here, I definitely recommend you to try their famous tokusei tsukemen first.

  1. Hello! Just dropping by to say how much I appreciate your website, it’s so helpful for planning! I also really appreciate the fact that you even labelled which button we should press for the recommended tsukemen. Thank you so much for your kindness :’)

  2. I wonder, does one have the choice for extra pork?

    Might you know what the difference between the ” regular tsukemen and the “tokusei tsukemen”

    During my layover, this is the only ramen place I have planned… crazy huh!

    • I see the difference… it’s actually a bowl of ramen. duh!

    • Actually, the tokusei tsukemen has ajitama (flavored egg), menma, nori, negi, and more cha-shu (more pork) — The regular doesn’t come with all of that. and Yes, you can add even more cha-shu pork by paying extra 200yen. Do you see the smaller yellow button towards the bottom on that machine? The one that says “チャーシュー” just press that. Hope you enjoy it!

      Note: The prices have gone up by 50yen. Regular tsukemen is now 800yen and Tokusei tsukemen is 1000yen.

  4. Hi Maki…

    thank you so much for clear explanation about this resto. im planning to go to japan this oct and this resto is on my list. the thing is, im muslim and muslim doesnt eat pork. im curious with your recommended menu of 濃厚鶏白+魚介 (i dont know how to read it), if its contains pork?
    how can i ask the chef not to add pork to my dish? is it possible?

    thanks so much

    • I’m not 100% sure, but the soup is made out of chicken and fish broth so I don’t think it contains pork broth. The Ramen will come with chyashu-pork on the top (the thinly sliced pork) but you can just remove it yourself. (Unfortunately, it will be very difficult to ask the chef to remove the pork so I would just remove the slice of the pork yourself.)

  5. The tsukemen broth at Fuunji will contain meaty pork bits in it, it’s part of the base. It would be a absurd to ask for them to remove it as it’s an intertwined part of the thick liquid. Literally visited last week as of writing this.

    • On top of that, if you want to avoid pork, you should avoid all kinds of gyokai style tsukemens, and you’re basically limited to tori paitans and shio ramen like at Afuri.

      Heck, a lot of times you’ll be walking around and the smell of pork bone will waft straight into your face from a tonkotsu shop.
