Restaurant Review: Tokyo's T's Tan Tan

I have loved pasta and noodles for as long as I can remember. Before I was vegetarian, I remember getting into instant ramen when it became popular at my middle school. When I heard that there was real, fresh ramen, I was intrigued. I didn't actually get ot try "real" ramen until my latest trip to Japan, when we were sure to visit an all-vegan ramen shop.

  • English menu
  • Fast service
  • Location close to trains
  • Reasonable prices
  • Tasty options
  • Can be a little tricky to find
T's Tan Tan is located in the bustling Tokyo train station. I only heard of it through a wonderful post by VegOut Tokyo, which provides very helpful directions. To note, it is located inside a paid area of station, but we were able to get inside with our JR passes. The restaurant was crowded and busy, but we were still seated relatively quickly. The decor is simple yet pleasing, and the place is lit well enough to make you forget that there aren't any windows. The menu offers a few simple choices, mostly ramen with soy meat. I opted for the "less spicy" option, and it still had a bit of a kick. The noodles were really tasty, and the servings were quite large (I couldn't finish mime). Service was fast a simple, and we didn't feel rushed. Vegan ramen is almost impossible to find, and T's Tan Tan made one of my dreams a reality. If you're in Tokyo, especially visiting the Imperial Palace, this is worth a stop.

Note: If you aren't going to Japan anytime soon, Dr. McDougall offers instant ramen that is pretty tasty for an instant food.
