Something you definitely have to eat at this restaurant are the “Golden Sesame Tantanmen Noodles”!

Perhaps there are many people who think “spicy” when they hear Tantanmen?
The Tantanmen Noodles of Tenjin Sasara are moderately spicy and easy to eat for those who cannot eat spicy food.
Of course those who like spicy food do not have to worry as you can choose from 6 spicy levels!

A delicious taste that makes you want to eat it many times!

Plenty of the “golden sesame” of the well-established store ”Wadaman” founded in 1883 is used for the soup.

The mellow sesame fragrance and the rich flavour are its characteristics!
And after a while the soup also has a creamy texture and in some way spreads ”kindness”.

Noodles of medium thickness which were made to match to the rich soup are used and their springy texture matches perfectly with the soup.

The Golden Sesame Tantanmen Noodles are the no.1 of this restaurant!

The “Golden Sesame Tantanmen Noodles” of Tenjin Sasara are already very delicious just like it is but the famous secret is not only that!

Enjoy every time you visit♪
Customize towards your preferred taste

To make you enjoy the Ramen there are 5 different kinds of seasonings (Japanese pepper, black pepper, white pepper, chili oil and ground toasted sesame seeds) placed on the tables you can all use for free.

The combinations are certainly infinite and you can customize with your preferred amounts!
You can enjoy your own worldwide unique Tantanmen Noodles!

Combination points to consider

It seems like the seasonings often used are “Japanese pepper” and “ground toasted sesame seeds”.
Among the frequent customers there also seem to be many persons adding these seasonings particularly.

  • Japanese pepper

    The flavour and the pungent spiciness of the Japanese pepper create a nuance you will become addicted to. It matches perfectly with the rich soup!

  • Black pepper

    The flavour adds a punch and will increase the impact the moment you eat.

  • Ground toasted sesame seeds

    The taste of the sesame and richness of the soup increase even more and make the meal substantial and outstanding!
    We recommend the “Rich Golden Sesame Tantanmen Noodles (1,000 Yen)” which contain three times of the usual amount of sesame to those who like sesame!!

  • Chili oil (roasted garlic)

    The chili oil and roasted garlic are not placed on the table but if you ask the staff you can receive it for free.
    It increases the richness and depth and the fragrance of the garlic stimulates your appetite even more.

Arranging the taste with your favourite combination is one of the pleasures unique to this store!!
