アイバンラーメン (Ivan's on Christmas)



We rolled up to Ivan's just before closing time. Was it going to be the standard salt ramen? Or maybe the shoyu? No way, I had to go with the limited edition "Mexican Chili Mazemen"


Basically taco rice ramen. Taco rice, for those not in Japan, is taco beef, lettuce, and tomato served on a bed of rice. It's awesome by he way. As were these noodles.


Ivan didn't just pop a packet of Mexican seasonings onto some noodles. Dried chilies and spices imported from the States were a key ingredient.


So good, though I wanted to add my own hot sauce and dip some tortilla chips in, once the noodles were done.

Mexico + Texas = Tex-Mex.
Tex-Mex + Ramen = .... Ra-Mex? Tex-Men?

Hurry up and get yours soon!
