Here’s one from Javier over at www.BoxFromJapan.com – thank you! So Box From Japan is a subscription service – every month, you can get a different four bowls of instant ramen from Japan – pretty awesome! This one’s wantan men – let’s see what Wikipedia has to say about this variety –
There are a number of related, Chinese-influenced noodle dishes in Japan, often served alongside ramen in ramen establishments. They do not include noodle dishes considered traditionally Japanese, such as soba or udon, which are almost never served in the same establishments as ramen.
Wantan-men has long straight noodles and wonton, served in a mild, usually salt tasted soup.
You’ve probably had wonton soup in Chinese restaurants in the United States; watan men is like ramen with the wontons in there. Let’s give it a look!

The broth is good too – good thickness and flavor. The wantan pieces are great – good size and really go well with the broth. Finally, the little piggy fishcakes are awesome. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars.
