175°DENO Tantanmen - A Breakdown
175°DENO Tantanmen has its roots in Sapporo, Hokkaido. They source the finest Sichuan peppers and blend them with homemade raiyu chili oil in a flavorful chicken soup.
When ordering, you can customize your tantanmen accordingly:
White or Black Sesame
Spice & Shibire (numbing pepper) Levels
Soup or Soupless
White Sesame Tantanmen
Their white sesame tantanmen base is on the creamier side, with decorative peanuts and little bits of dried shrimp for crunch and bitterness.
With the (hot) soup, the shibire numbing peppers are more intense. With soup, round noodles are used.
Black Sesame Tantanmen
The black sesame tastes completely different. It has a more hickory and smoky flavor and is more grainy and coarse.
If you order it soupless, the overall temperature is less hot. The numbing pepper therefore stands out less. With soupless you’re also treated to thicker, flat fettuccine like noodles.
Limited Time Tantanmen
Keep an eye out for their limited time tantanmen too. In the summer, it's cold tantanmen.
