I like Chinese dandan noodles without soup, but I heard there’s also Hiroshima-style dandan noodles without soup and wanted to eat for a long time. Because of such a high popularity of Chinese dandan noodles these days, some Hiroshima-style dandan noodles shops in Hiroshima started their business in Tokyo, too. King-ken (キング軒) is one of the dandan noodles that have head shop in Hiroshima. At first, they were open the branch in Hamamatsucho in Tokyo, and now they have second branch in Ginza area.
Yummy foods that I had
Their dandan noodles (汁なし担担麺) is very inexpensive. 580 yen. It have noodles, sauce and green onions, and a little minced meat only. Degree of spiceness can be choosen from 0 to 4. They say 2 is normal. So, I chose level 3. I bought a ticket at the ticket vending machine just close to the entrance.
My dandan noodles was served in five minutes. The flavor of Sichuan pepper was good. I mixed altogether well until noodles completely dressed with sauce, as they say. So much Sichuan pepper on it. My tongue got numb. I love this sense 🙂 The noodles was narrow.
They recommend to order rice and put ingredients of dandan noodles on the rice. But I didn’t order rice because I thought I can’t eat so much. But the amount of noodles is not large. So, maybe I can eat both noodles and rice up. I’ll try next time 🙂
They prepare Sichuan pepper and red pepper on the table. We can enjoy some tastes with one bowl of dandan noodles.
