#3931: Maruchan Umakara Tantanmen - Japan

Here’s one that came from Japan in a 5am Ramen subscription box! You can get one of these rad boxes here – and use the coupon code THERAMENRATER for a discount!

Here’s what the site had to say about this one – “

This Tantanmen (a spicy style of ramen) comes from the premium “Maruchan Seimen” brand. ​As you’d expect, it more than delivers! The word “Umakara” means savory and spicy. That’s exactly what this is – it’s spicy, but not overpoweringly so. The rich, sesame nutty soup is top-notch tasty. Just like in actual tantanmen, you have minced pork (instead of sliced pork) and crunchy bok choy for toppings.”

Awesome – let’s give it a try!
