It is ramen weather. I have wanted to check out this place since I read a review by Alex De Vore in the Santa Fe Reporter in August. I need it to be cold for ramen weather. First of all this isn’t the cheap stuff I used to live on in college and after. This ramen has high quality noodles and ingredients like real vegetables. It doesn’t come with a flavor package filled with salt and artificial flavoring. Just saying…
I had the vegetable ramen with the shoyu (fermented soy bean) instead of miso. Shoyu is a little less salty. I think so anyhow and my fingers didn’t swell up so there definitely was less salt. The vegetable ramen(10.95) came with cabbage, fried tofu, red bell peppers and green onions. I ordered the green chile tempura(2.50 extra) just to see what it was like. You get 2 pieces of tempura with an order.There were no peas or carrots so I thought I would give the tempura a shot. It was wonderful. I really didn’t need it but it was a nice choice. Later, I added some carrots which you will see made the very colorful dish even more so. The vegetable shoyu was filled with all kinds of spices and was incredible. Since it took awhile to get home I needed to reheat this dish just a little bit. The containers had kept the ramen really warm. Nice packaging. The green chile tempura was also packaged separately. Thank you!
We also had the Tanmen ramen(10.95) with the chicken broth with seafood umami and stir-fried cabbage, carrots, shitake mushrooms, green onions, naruto and 1/2 a seasoned egg. We decided to add a side of kimchi(2.00) to the order. It looked delicious. The kimchi was a delicious addition. We placed it right in the middle of the ramen
Now that it is ramen weather, just go to Mampuku Ramen. You will not regret it!!! * I almost forgot the broths can be made gluten-free by adding Shio Tare.
