Mala Tantan

Tantanmen, or dan dan noodles, originates in Sichuan, China. This area is known for using "mala", a spicy numbing seasoning.

This instant tantanmen puts a big emphasis on "mala". Alongside a smooth flavor in the soup is a zesty, numbing pepper flavor. It's addictive, to say the least. Top quality, thick and flat noodles join crunchy bok choy and seasoned minced pork toppings.
