#3497: Kenmin Shisen Shirunashi Tantanmen - Japan

Here’s another one from James of Lakeside, CA – thanks again! This is an interesting one – a rice noodle tantanmen from Japan. The packaging certainly is neat looking, and it’s gota brand I’ve not heard of which is always something I like. New is goo, although from what I see this brand has been around for some time. Let’s take a look.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added egg, ground pork seasoned with Flybyjing Sichuan Chilli Crisp, sesame seed, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion, and fried garlic. The rice noodle comes out good – a decent gauge and a thickness that the 4 minutes of cooking got to a very good texture – not too soft, not tough and brittle. The flavor is a slightly spicy and tangy one which was very enjoyable. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. JAN bar code 4901483021192.
