#FoodPornFriday - Amazing Tokyo Style Ramen right here in Windsor

Tan Tan Men

I'm not sure how many people realize this is a thing; down by the University on Wyandotte (2270 Wyandotte West to be exact) is a small Asian diner called Eros Asian Eatery. They feature Southeast Asian Cuisine most days of the week. What people may not know is that every Saturday the shop transforms like Ultraman into the Kagerou Ramen House where you can find some of the best Ramen I've ever had.

Kagerou serves four different varieties of ramen:
Tokyo Style Shoyo Ramen (Soy Sauce Flavour)
Shio Ramen (Salt Flavour)
Miso Ramen
Tan Tan Men (Japan's interpretation of a classic Szechuan noodle dish).

Tokyo Style Shoyu Ramen
I've personally tried the Tan Tan Men (pictured up top) and the Shoyo (pictured to the right) and both were amazing. No, seriously, amazing. This is some of the best ramen I've had. This is some of the best Asian food I've had. Heck, this is some of the best food I've had in Windsor. Okay, fine, I'll say it: this is some of the best food I've ever had. 

The first time I went I noted to one of the owners that I needed to bring my wife. Well, I brought her yesterday and she tried the Miso Ramen (last pic on the page), and enjoyed it so much that she's "forcing" me to bring her back today. Yes, that's correct, we are going to eat Ramen two days in a row because it's so damn good.

But wait, didn't I say this transformation only happens on Saturday and isn't it Friday? Yes, normally that is the case, but in celebration of the Holidays, Eros/Kagerou is doing a special 3 Days of Ramen Holiday Event! It started Yesterday and runs until Saturday. So you can head down there today and try some of this amazing ramen yourself. They are open today until 7pm today and tomorrow from noon until 3pm.

Miso Ramen
If you can't make it out over the next couple days, that's cool. Just stop by any Saturday between noon and 3pm. You may want to go early though, as they only prepare so much and service goes until 3pm or they run out.

I honestly can't recommend this enough. Checking out Kagerou Ramen House at Eros Asian Eatery has been one of my favorite culinary experiences of 2017.  My only regret is that it took me so long to finally give their ramen a chance. Just think of all those Saturday ramen lunches I missed out on.
