Katsuura-style tantan-men

One to try by the sea

Katsuura-style tantan-men is a unique noodle dish served by restaurants around Katsuura City in Chiba Prefecture. This long-standing, much-loved dish was originally created to warm the fishermen and women divers who worked in the sea adjacent to Katsuura. With a shoyu (soy sauce) base, Katsuura-style tantan-men is unique for its toppings of pork and onion fried with chili in chili oil - regular tantan-men doesn’t use sesame oil. “Ezawa” is a local restaurant known for being the first to serve authentic tantan-men. You’ll find yourself unable to forget the moreish flavor of the spicy soup, enhanced with onion, diced shallots and lots of crunchy Japanese leeks.
