Noodle dishes are loved by people of all ages due to the variety of recipes and the advantage of being able to easily cook a meal. Among them, âtantan-myeon,â which has a spicy, savory, and dual appeal, is attracting attention from noodle lovers. âDantan-myeonâ is a typical dish from the Sichuan region. It is a noodle dish that uses broth made from pork bones or chicken, and is eaten by grating crushed peanuts, sesame sauce, bok choy, and stir-fried pork into a homemade broth. Although it is a Chinese-style dish, it is well known in Korea for its Japanese ramen style âtantanmen.â From authentic âtantan noodles â to Japanese âtantan noodles,â we will
introduce the best 5 restaurants that are both
spicy and savory.

specialty store âDalshita, noodlesâ is located near Seongsu Station. The small entrance and cute exterior make you feel like you've visited a ramen shop in Japan. The signature menu for over 20 hours is âSeongsu-dong tantan-myeon,â a Szechuan-style Japanese ramen that uses broth made from pork bones and chicken bones. It is
seasoned and stir-fried pork soboro, served with tender arongsas, and savory noodles made by grinding nuts
yourself. It is famous for its rich flavor like âtonkotsu ramenâ because the color of the soup is light compared to âtantan noodlesâ specialty stores. It's sharp and savory, and the aroma is soft and melts in the mouth. All noodle dishes include
a small amount of cooked rice, so you can have a hearty meal. âSobamaki,â where soba is rolled in seaweed and cut into pieces, is one of the popular side dishes. It's a combination similar to regular soba noodles, but keep in mind that the rich flavor of the soba noodles in one bite
and the cool, rich broth make it a good
side to eat between eating âtantan noodles.â

dream is Vijay): It was nice that the soup was so rich and savory! I
think it's the beef bone flavor that makes you think of rice. There's a reason every noodle dish comes with a small amount of rice!

tantan noodles on the menu, so even people who are
unfamiliar with âtantan noodlesâ can enjoy it according to their taste. Add Japanese pepper, red pepper powder, black vinegar, and
