Tanmen タンメン is a type of ramen. Tanmen usually has a lot of stir-fried vegetables in it.

Mabo-tofu 麻婆豆腐 is tofu and spicy chili sauce which turns the ramen soup into a thick stew.

This shop's Mouko Tanmen 蒙古タンメン has both of them above, and a miso and garlic flavor.

This ramen was so spicy for me that I could felt the sweat running down my head and face. I got a runny nose while eating it. However, it was very tasty.
* You should bring a towel if you sweat easily.

Hokkyoku Ramen 北極ラーメン is about twice spicier than 蒙古タンメン Mouko Tanmen. It has a strong red color soup.

When I had Hokkyoku Ramen 北極ラーメン for the first time I didn't think I would be able to handle its spiciness. Therefore, I chose a half size ramen of a set meal (as described later).

I ate up all the noodles and soup. It was really spicy, but tasted good. However, I won't eat a regular size of this next time.
I spent the next day on the toilet with my ass on fire. 😡
