Ts Tantan


Restaurants & Cafés


It's almost worth rerouting your trip via Tokyo Station to eat at this noodle shop. T's Tantan, an offshoot of Jiyugaoka eatery T's Restaurant, earns the rare distinction of being one of the only places selling vegetarian ramen in Tokyo – or, at least, ramen that's actually worthy of the name. The speciality of the house is Chinese-style tantan-men noodles, served in a broth flavoured with sesame and peanut oil and available with a range of toppings. Our medium-spiced 'midori tantan', topped with leafy greens, soymeat mince and pumpkin seeds (nice touch, that) wasn't as rich as the meat-based version of the dish, but made for a hearty lunch nonetheless. T's Tantan can be found inside the JR Tokyo Station, at the end of the Keiyo Street shopping parade on the way to the Keiyo Line platform.

Went here today. It was super easy to find. There are signs on the walls that say no milk, no meat, no eggs. Happily slurped noodles with in a flavorful broth with gluten nuggets, bean sprouts, onions and greens. The combo allows you to add a side, I had rice with more nuggets. I also had a glass of wine. Every time I've been to Japan I've drooled over the ramen shops knowing as a vegan I was out of luck. It was the amazing and delicious experience I always knew it would be. Thanks for making this info available.

As described T's Tantan is a bit hard to find but well worth the effort. My craving for spicy ramen were more than satisfied as were those of my vegan traveling companions. Wonderful in ever way. Look for the KeiyoStreet section in the southern area of the Tokyo Station. Even if you're a meat-eater, you won't be disappointed.
