Nakiryu Tantanmen

Tokyo is home to 2 ​Michelin star ramen shops - and this one (Nakiryu) has an instant ramen!

This is a supremely tasty tantanmen (a spicier style of ramen). It's deeply layered with different flavors. You have creaminess from white sesame paste and spiciness from raiyu chili oil. These collide with a complex soup that's chicken, duck, and plenty of other high-level ingredients. Simply put, it'll blow you away.
