Ramen Sanji

Ramen Sanji

If there's one thing you should know about me, it should be the fact that I LOVE RAMEN!  And I'm not talking about those instant kinds (although those are pretty delicious, too), but the legit stuff is where my heart's at.  So when I saw the sign that said "World's #1 Ramen," I had to go see for myself.  I mean, I know that technically anyone can claim to have the best ramen, but you better serve some good food to back up your game.  Or else prepared to get a back-handed slap from me.  Haha just kidding. 

#1 Ramen!

Chefs cooking ramen with love


Apparently the restaurant, Ramen Sanji, was named after Warrior Sanji.  All their ramen is named after warriors, but I was dead-set on the Ramen Sanji.  The ramens were all pretty similar, save for a few changes in the number of eggs and pork slices (Woo, so much change...can't deal with it).  They also had a few shoyu ramens, but I've learned over the years of ramen-eating to always order the tonkotsu broths on first visits.

The curly egg noodles were cooked al dente, just the way I like it!  The egg had perfectly gooey yolk, and I loved the fact that they used brown eggs instead of white.  

The pork had a nice char-grilled flavor, but it was too fatty for my taste (although it made the broth super rich and creamy hehe).  It definitely wasn't the cleanest broth I had.  I mean look at it!  It's like when you see a murky lake and you worry about the fishes living in it.  But in the ramen world, thick broths are the most flavorful!  It was so good, I ended up draining the heck out of that ramen broth lake.  I ♥ the broth, but it probably wasn't that great for my ♥.

Display of Ramen

Bowls and bowls of (plastic) ramen on display!  If you're waiting in line, you can just gawk open-mouthed, at these pretty looking bowls.  Plastic can be mighty appetizing when you're hungry!

Lining up for ramen

Worth lining up for!  I wouldn't say that it's the world's #1 ramen, but it was one of the best I've had.  They should advertise that it's one of Cathy's favorite ramens!
