Restaurant Review: At Okiboru, Soupless Ramen in a Stressless Setting
I have never had tsukemen noodles that cling to their sauce as well as Okiboru’s. This may be because the broth has been reduced to a sticky syrup, but the noodles’ shape — an overfed rectangle, like linguine — must have something to do with it. Okiboru makes all its noodles in the kitchen each day, and the rollers that cut them into strands seem to leave the surface slightly rougher than typical ramen noodles. However it’s done, the marriage of sauce and starch is so nearly perfect that you may forget you are eating in an undecorated room in a vintage tenement next door to a shop that sells backpacks and suitcases on the sidewalk
