Taiwan Ramen

Nagoya's B-class Gourmet

The Taiwan ramen, a Nagoya classic was invented by a Taiwanese restaurant owner. The dish has nothing to do with the country Taiwan nor the ingredients being in the ramen just to be clear. So, what is Taiwan ramen? This ramen is a super spicy soup noodle dish with green onions, chives, minced meat and a lot of garlic in a spicy soy sauce based broth. At some restaurants you may pick the level of spiciness as well as how much garlic you want in your ramen. Here, I had the full experience with normal spice and regular amount of garlic. The soup is spicy but very light and easy on the stomach. The minced meat, chives and green onions add another dimension of flavour to the soup and noodles when you mixed them all up together. It also enhances the whole bowl of noodle itself by balancing the textures with the softness of the minced meat, chewiness of the noodles and crunchiness of the chives and green onions. Then you add on that garlicky smell with that awesome hot and spicy broth is like a perfect match made for each other! If you ever drop by Nagoya, this is a must try for all you ramen and spicy lovers!
