Maruchan Umakara Tantanmen

This Tantanmen (a spicy style of ramen) comes from the premium "Maruchan Seimen" brand. ​

As you'd expect, it more than delivers! The word "Umakara" means savory and spicy. That's exactly what this is - it's spicy, but not overpoweringly so. The rich, sesame nutty soup is top-notch tasty. Just like in actual tantanmen, you have minced pork (instead of sliced pork) and crunchy bok choy for toppings.
