Have you ever tried tantanmen (tantan noodle)?
Tantanmen (tantan ramen) is the Japanese version of Sichuan dan dan noodle. Dan dan noodle does not come with soup but Tantanmen comes with spicy chili flavored creamy broth made of sesame paste. Both have spicy pork mince on the top.
Tantanmen is extremely tasty while also being surprisingly easy to make!
My recipe is as delicious as that of a specialty store and I’m sure you will get addicted to this spicy but nutty sweet sesame broth noodle!
I mix chicken broth and soy milk to make soup. Soy milk makes the spiciness of chili oil milder.
For those who are not good at spicy foods, we can also make mild tantanmen. So no worries!
In this class, you will learn;
– Japanese creamy tantan soup from scratch.
*We are not making the noodles and will use store-bought noodles.
– Nikumiso (pork topping seasoned with miso)
*For those who do not eat pork, we will replace pork with beef or chicken 🙂
– Fried pork gyoza (dumplings) with fresh ingredients, technique about putting the filling in the dough, using store-bought gyoza skins (wrappers) which I think are widely available in local supermarkets around the world.
*If you are interested in making wrappers from scratch, you may like to take this Gyoza intensive class.
* A welcome drink and a glass of wine, beer or sake are included. Bringing in your own bottles is welcome!* Menus are subject to change based on the availability of items in the market.

Dear our wonderful members and guests,It is with deep sadness to announce that we have decided to close JJ Kitchen for the time being.During the past 5 years, we have enjoyed cooking and discussing cultural issues with each and everyone. However, Junko had a stroke in June and is currently in the hospital undergoing physiotherapy. Since we do not know how long this will take, we have come to the conclusion to close our doors. For those of you that still have our vouchers, we will be contacting you separately.For JJ Kitchen members, we will contact you regarding future lessons.We thank you all for the love and support you have shown JJ Kitchen, and we hope that we can cook together again.
