Spicy cuisine which you may become addictive – ‘Mouko tanmen Nakamoto’

Mouko tanmen Nakamoto (蒙古タンメン 中本) is a Ramen (noodle) restaurant, which is well-liked by young students. The characteristic of this restaurant is not only Ramen but also its Spicy taste. Here you can choose a spicy level from 0 to 10!

By the way, I ordered Gomoku Miso Tanmen which costs 980 yen. I thought that the spiciness of food in Japan was not so hot and ordered ramen with spicy level 8 but I was wrong. It was so hot that I was not able to finish it!


Gomoku miso tanmen (Spicy level 8)

The thick and reddish red soup of ramen was so spicy but also so tasty. It is a recommended shop for those people who love to eat spicy food. There is also a Take-out option for various donburi (a bowl of rice with ingredients on top).
Please try and challenge it once!
