“Tan Tan Ramen can be a great winter dish because it;’s hot. The red soup is flavored with white miso, pork extract, sesame oil and other spices. As you can tell with just a sip, this is another bowl where sesame contributes a lot to the deliciousness.”

Sesame seeds and more.

Finished (click to enlarge). The noodles are slightly thinner than your average instant, with a slightly stronger tension. The broth is a thick and tasty one, with a sesame and spicy thing going on. It’s not so spicy that it overwhelms, and it’s very stick to your ribsy stuff. All in all a very enjoyable flavorland. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4901990325844.
