I used to walk by Sababa and their Technical Tan Tan Men sign everyday on my way to work, always wondering if I should give them a try. Then one day I got a huge craving for tan tan men and Sababa was all I could think about. But when I got there they were closed and then proceeded to be closed for the next three weeks. I assumed that they were going to be closed forever, but a few days ago I noticed the shutters were raised and the lights were on like they never skipped a beat. Perhaps the head chef cut off his finger and needed the three weeks to recover…okay bad joke.
Anyhow, I decided to finally stop by tonight after work. I ordered the Pa~ko~ Ramen, which is their “Technical” Tan Tan Men topped with fried pork. Supposedly it’s the third most popular item on the menu. The first was a soupless creation and I wasn’t really in the mood for it.
