JAPANESE TANTAN SOUP

picture of vegan Japanese tantan soup

There is a vegan restaurant at Tokyo main station called T’s Tantan. They have this amazing tantan soup that makes me get on a train through half the city, walk forever through the giant station and even buy a ticket for a train I don’t take, to get to the area where the restaurant is. And every time again I come to the conclusion that this soup is worth the effort.

They were so nice to draw the ingredients on the wall, so I managed to create a similar soup at home …
