Instant Noodle 4

These instant ramen are not typical Japanese ramen. But there are some ramen that are so good taste that it’s hard to think of them as instant noodles.
You can eat them in only Japan because they are not exported to overseas countries.


Today I’d like to introduce an unusual instant noodle.

Chuka-Zanmai Suratan-men


Suratan-men means Chinese sour and spicy soup noodle.

Although I already introduced this one in Cup Noodle, this instant noodle is standard. not cup’s. 

The taste is not changed when it was released 40 years ago.


Worthy of a special mention is nice and firm noodle😍
It is said to be the most popular souvenir for Japanese expatriates.

There are also Tantan-men and a thick soy sauce flavors and so on, but I especially recommend you this Suratan-men😍

This taste is so delicious that I don’t need to eat suratanmen at a ramen restaurant.

Jajamen in Morioka city


This is a rice noodle from Morioka city in Tohoku called “Jajamen”. I don’t know why they call it “jajamen” because it looks like a Korean reimen too much…😑

Jajamen explains

It looks like they put kimchi and spicy miso on it… unfortunately it’s not tasty, they need to apologize to Koreans. I think they will get angry if they see this Jajamen. 

Actually, Korean reimen is really yummy!😍

Japan and Korea don’t get along in only politics, but to be honest, people are very close friends. They are very popular in Japan.

If you’re Korean and have a misunderstanding about Japan, Please come to Japan and find out for yourself!

Chinchin-tei Aburasoba

Chinchin-tei Aburasoba

“Abura” means oil, “Soba” means noodle, and Chinchin-tei means name of ramen restaurant.(Do you know “Chinchin” means  men’s symbol😅 )

Abura-soba is a soupless ramen with rayu and sesame oil poured on it. It is said to have originated in Tokyo.

Chinchin-tei Aburasoba noodle

The noodles are curly, nice and firm.

It looks delicious, but It is too oily to eat half…I put a raw egg on top, as shown in the picture🧡

Aburasoba taste

It is oftensaid the ramen is bad for your health because it’s full of chemical seasonings in soup… but there are many kinds health-conscious ramen in Japan.

I will introduce you to health-conscious ramen next!

Bye now😊
