The former owner still made the gyozas at the restaurant for nearly 43 years and, boy, were they delicious.

An average of 2,00 to 2,500 gyozas are made a day. Ingredients include Chinese chives, cabbage, and ground pork.

We were served a bowl of soba with a seafood broth, truffle oil, chicken oil, and a soy base. Toppings include Iberica Pork belly from Spain, whey-fed pork from Italy, Kujo green onions from Kyoto, fermented bamboo shoots, and truffle powder.

Flavors were colliding in our mouthes and we were loving every minute of it. Steven said that he has never even had a more perfect noodle. Andrew said that this was the probably the best value ever on the show.

Before we were able to enjoy our ramen, we were graced with the Shabu Shabu experience. We cooked the meat in a boiling pot of Japanese broth before eating it all.

This bowl of ramen was created with noodles that were made a week in advance. This allowed for an increase in glassiness and an added fragrance to the broth. It was then topped with a special part of the Iberico pork called the "Secreto".

The ramen was able to take us to another dimension. Steven described it as a massage, an experience that you thoroughly enjoyed and you just don't want it to stop. Andrew wanted more hot noodle soup even though we were in humid weather.

Who was our Worth It winner? For Andrew and Steven, Tsuta was our winner. For Adam and our guide, Rie, it was RinRin! That's a wrap of our first episode of Worth It, but before you leave we would like to know...
