Kyoto - Tsuru Kama tsukemen

Thoroughly enjoyed this place for its tsukemen. They do a shoyu, a slightly spicy miso with chile oil, and third spicier one whose name I don't recall. The place is run by a few somewhat younger gentleman and the kitchen is directly on the other side of the counter. They make their own noodles, and the shoyu-based broth has tons of katsuo and niboshi for a deep intense flavor. We all ordered the tsukemen sets with karaage and rice - also very good - and were stuffed by the end of our meals. I am sorry that I don't recall the address, but they are close to the Nishiki Food Market by Fujiidaimaru and Teramachikyogoku arcade. The sets were around 1050 yen per and the nama beer is bottled - Suntory "Malts," which was perfect with our meals. Definitely more of a local place, but they do have an English menu for knuckleheads like me who can only read hiragana and katakana...
