#3111: Maruchan Soy Milk Tan-Tan Wantan Men - Japan

Today we have a Zenpop.JP variety – so what’s Zenpop? They’re a subscription service for all things Japanese! Definitely, check them out. By the way, use coupon code RAMENRATER to get $2 off! Here’s what they had to say about this one –

‘This may be the first soy milk noodles in a ZenPop ramen pack. Plus this one’s name is fun to say. Sesame and soy milk make the soup a bit more mild than normal tan tan noodles. Moreover, a little bit of ginger gives a nice accent to the soup. Enjoy your (probably) first mild spicy wantan noodles!’

Will do! Let’s give it a go!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, soft egg, chashu pork, spring onion and sesame seeds. Noodles were pretty good but standard gauge. The broth had a nice color and separation to it. A lot of sesame flavor and a hint of spiciness. Definitely soy milk in there. Wantan fell short though. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.

This variety comes by way of Japan Ramen Box. Japan Ramen Box is a new subscription box outfit with neat varieties to check out! Go visit their website and have a look!  This is wantan men – let’s see what Wikipedia has to say about this variety –

A wonton (also spelled wantan, wanton, or wuntun in transcription from Cantonese; Mandarin: húndun or húntun) is a type of dumpling commonly found in a number of Chinese cuisines.

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!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, chashu pork, hard boiled egg and spring onion. The noodles were engorged, that’s for sure. What surprised me is that they kind of hid wantan inside them somehow. It was honestly not expected. The wantan was light and of alright quality. The broth was as expected – much like wonton soup you’d find here in the states but a little better. To be honest, this was very satisfying stuff – hard to put down. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.   JAN bar code 4901071100018.
