TAAN Noodles is a modern homage to traditional izakayas (sake bars) and ramen shops. The Adams-Morgan spot has found ways to present unexpected ingredients into the classic Japanese soup.
Hunting for the Perfect Ramen
Ramen is served at tens of thousands of eateries throughout the world, but there's something special about the version at TAAN Noodles. Part of the secret lies in chef Michael Than's signature spice blend. Aficionados are also drawn by Than's use of unique ingredients—garlic chips show up in a vegan ramen with soy-milk broth, for instance, and pickled cucumbers add an acidic tang to the duck-confit ramen with scallions.
Japan's Rice Wines & Aged Spirits
TAAN Noodles' sake list hits a range of flavor profiles, with bottles that range from dry to semi-sweet. There are a few specialty cocktails as well, such as the old-fashioned-like Dr. Sun Yat-sen, made from 12-year-aged Japanese whiskey, simple syrup, and aromatic bitters.
What some people are buzzing about:
“Great place, food is clever and staff is friendly ... loved it”
“The host has an excellent demeanor, and the server was good.”
“Veggie gyoza appetizer is on point... they charge extra if you ask your ramen be made spicy, but it's WORTH it if you really like it spicy..The vegan ramen is better...”
