Hot Spicy Tanmen You'll Get Hooked on

There is a specific Ramen category called Tanmen.
Tanmen has lots of stir fried vegetables with noodles.
And when I hear "Tanmen", it reminds me of only one Tanmen shop, Mouko Tanmen Nakamoto.

They now have 16 shops in Kanto area, mainly in Tokyo.
I visited the one in Okachimachi.
It's located in the Ramen Yokocho and there are some other Ramen shops around, but Nakamoto is the one I often visit.

It was about 5 years ago when I had their Tanmen for the first time, and it was something totally different from other Ramens I've had before.

It contains noodles, lots of vegetables, meat, Tofu and lots of sliced garlic.
And it gets me stuffed so much every time!

I order the most regular Tanmen "Mouko Tanmen" for 800yen with hot spicy red sauce on top.
It depends on how much hot taste you can handle, but I always try to be careful not to mix the red sauce into my soup too much because I'm not that hot food eater.
I mix about half of what I have in my bowl into the soup and leave the rest.
Otherwise I cannot finish my bowl and my mouth and lips will be sore.

But, their Tanmen gives me lots of energy and satisfaction whenever I come in.
It looks very oily and heavy, but it doesn't take more than 10 minutes to eat it up except for the red sauce.
It's hot but very good.

For those who cannot handle any spicy taste, they also have Tanmen without any hot sauce, which is also good.

And for those who can have veeeeery hot ones, they have the one named "the North Pole Ramen".
The North Pole Ramen is just so red that I can tell that it's not something I can handle.
I've seen some people eating this "The North Pole Ramen" sometimes, but they all are streaming with sweat.

Probably at all the Nakamoto shops, it gets very crowded around lunch and dinner time.
So, I recommend to visit there in the morning or afternoon.
I visited there at about 11:00am this time, and it was half full then.
When I came out at 11:30am, there were already 4 people waiting.

And also, you need to go there with your stomach totally empty to fully enjoy their Tanmen.

This is a restaurant chain that has 14 restaurants in Tokyo and 17 restaurants in Japan.
