I've tried a lot of ramen places and this by far is my favorite. It's funny the circumstances in which we ended up at this place, but here it is in a nut shell. My Boyfriend, his friends and I spent the weekend in the city for C2E2 and on the second night, Saturday night, we decided to eat dinner without any plan or resrvations. Also forgetting completely that its saturday night and busy.
So after trying a few places and the wait being way too long, we landed ourselves here. Now it's funny because when we got here, the wait wasn't too bad but in my mind even though I love ramen, I just wasn't in the mood for it at that moment. So while waiting I made up my mind to try someting else on the menu so my friends could get ramen. Well turns out the sign said that something in the kitchen was down and the ONLY thing available to order was RAMEN.
So starting off the experience a little bummed that I didn't have a choice of what I could order, in the end it was all worth it!!
My friends all chose the same ramen and I was really torn on what to get. I had an idea of what I wanted mine to taste like, but I wasn't quite sure what I chose on the menu was going to be exactly what I thought it would be, or the exact opposite. I chose the second option which was Light and sweet.
Turns out it was EXACTLY what I wanted and I was so satisfied with my decision. The broth was a lighter broth that didnt leave you overwhelmed or with a wierd after taste. The meat that comes in the ramen was ground pork but there is an option to add on pork belly. At first I did not choose to partake, but then once I saw everyone else's come out with this amazing looking crispy pork belly that had actual grill marks on it, I had to order one as well.
So this happy discovery left me with amazing memories with friends and a new favorite Ramen spot. I recommend trying this place on yor next ramen adventure.
