Cuisine Tan Tan (Nishiyodogawa Ward)

Dec. 20, 2016 File No. 4

(Postscript as of September 2021)

The restaurant operated as an izakaya only during night hours for a while, but since we’ve heard that they had resumed their service for lunch as well, we took a visit again for lunch.

We recently knew that Tantan is a sister restaurant alongside the restaurants we’ve introduced in articles 29 (Shoyu to Kai to Men- Soshite Hito to Yume) and 85 (Ramen Bar Ichi-Fuji).

For the lunch menu, they had three kinds of standard ramen and a special ramen for limited time only. We will feature three of the ramen dishes.

Lunch menu of Tantan

Soy Sauce flavored Ramen

Soy Sauce flavored Ramen

The soy sauce was rich but had a smooth texture.
This ramen had green onions, king oyster mushrooms, boiled eggs, and two kinds of roasted pork on top. You can enjoy the differences between the two slices of the softness of the roasted pork.

Chicken flavored Ramen

The difference between the soy sauce ramen is that the meat used here is chicken instead of pork.
The mild soup must be a splendid match with liquor and to finish your meal.

Iberico Pork Oil Noodles

The roasted chicken on top was chewy.
You may think that the oil may be too thick as a first impression, but it was the opposite.
If you mix the noodles from below, the soy sauce soup, the yolk, and the oil will create a masterpiece!

The roasted chicken and the egg yolk will bring to you a blissful sensation.
It is even better when eaten at nighttime.

Fried Chicken with Rice

The chicken was huge and juicy just as we had at Ichifuji.

Mini Roasted Pork Mayonnaise Bowl

The roasted pork used here is the same as the ones used in the ramen we mentioned earlier.
The sauce soaked into the meat adds flavor to the rice.

We had a good proportion for a good lunch meal!

The pork oil noodles are served only for lunch, but you may order the ramen we featured earlier for dinner as well.
It may be delightful when eaten with alcohol. Why not visit?

(Segment of December 2016)

Today’s article is about a cuisine near our company. Usually, our employees have our lunch catered ( by the way, it’s convenient since we only have to pay half of the cost! ), but sometimes we spend time here by means of refreshment.

The place is called Tan Tan and it’s a fifteen minute walk/ six to seven minutes by bike. Lunch time is from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. ( only weekdays, closed on Saturdays and Sundays ), but there are times when lunchtime ends earlier due to food shortage. On this day, lunch ended at 1 p.m. due to rice shortage.

There is Himejima Park across Tan Tan. In autumn, the red maple leaves create a wonderful ambience, and in spring, the cherry trees blossom all around the park.

This bar + cuisine place recommends barbecued chicken for seven hundred yen and is a tasty meal. Here is the plate menu.

What we like to have is the fried chicken meal.
The fried chicken is so big, and since the chicken is freshly fried, the outer coating is crunchy and has a good quality. By the way, the meal is seven hundred yen including the side meal and pickles!

By the way, here is the curry, which is five hundred yen.


Since NishiyodogawaWard has only few restaurants, you may worry about where to eat. However, why not Tan Tan?
