Tan-men noodles are wavy wheat noodles specifically for tan-men. It comes with a soup packet so you can easily make it at home.
Tan-men (タンメン) is a type of ramen soup noodle dish. The broth is a light chicken stock and it’s topped with stir-fried pork and vegetables. The noodles are regular ramen noodles, either straight or wavy. It’s one of the quickest homemade ramen bowls you can make at home.
Where To Buy
You can find fresh or dried tan-men noodles at Japanese and Asian grocery stores.
Pictured above is the variety of ramen noodles I found at my local Japanese grocery stores. I also found a package of tan-men noodles and soup. It comes with three packs of noodles and soups. I use only the noodles and make the soup broth from scratch.
If you can’t find the specific package of tan-men noodles, use regular ramen noodles or Chinese wheat-based noodles.
