Mita Noodle Factory "Burning Tsukemen"
Challenge the scorching tsukemen

I have tried the limited-time menu "Burning Tsukemen" from Mita Noodle Factory. The umami of meat and fish often comes out, and the sauce has a strong chili flavor, and each bite hurts my tongue and makes me cry. It was a pain to be absent-minded for about 10 minutes after I finished eating.

The price is 900 yen (tax included). In addition to the classic combination of Mita Noodles, which is a thick noodle with thick noodles and a thick sauce containing char siu and menma blocks, a pinch of pepper powder is piled up on top of the crimson oil.

The type of pepper powder used is "Trinidad Scorpion Butch Taylor," which, as the name suggests, has a tingling taste. It once recorded a spicy figure of 1.46 million Scoville, which is about 400 times that of Tabasco sauce.

By adjusting these spices, you can specify 4 levels of "1 spicy", "2 spicy", "3 spicy", and "extreme" for the scorching tsukemen. I chose.

Wait for a while until the very thick noodles are boiled. When I looked into the arriving device, it surely covered the surface of the dripping with bright red. When you dip the noodles and entangle them well, at first the smell of pepper tickles your nose, and you have a long-standing idea, "Is this a menu to enjoy the scent?" Attack.

If you put this amount in your mouth, it will be painful to your tongue.

Too much shock usually stopped me from picking up the next noodles. Sweat oozes from the forehead and tears ooze in the eyes. Even if it's 2 spicy, it's quite exaggerated. Moreover, the taste of the fish and meat that melted into the sauce and the thick texture of the tongue have not been wiped out, so it feels like eating a feast while being tortured.

Also, no matter how much you advance the chopsticks, you will not get used to the spiciness, but rather the spiciness will accumulate. I tried not to add too much sauce to the noodles at once, and I managed to flatten the noodles with a few glasses of cold water from the pitcher on the table, but when I noticed, the pitcher's water was halved.

While staring at the empty bowl, my head turned white for about 5 minutes and I couldn't move, and in another 5 minutes I finally regained my mind and stood up. I thought I was reasonably confident in the spicy food, but next time I decided to make it one spicy and honestly admit defeat.
