Okay I have seriously done too many posts of Agu Ramen. I now have to direct you to use the search function to find all my previous posts…lol. This time I am sharing something different though! I tried their Jidori ramen which is their chicken based stock, the lightest and healthiest broth they carry. I enjoyed it. A lot. I would definitely recommend it!
Can’t have ramen without the gyoza. I need to get myself back to here again. I am sad to report that they made a few adjustments to their menu and no longer carry the Hiyashi Ramen which I am sad about because it was SO good!
I’ve talked about Agu Ramen and Hokkaido Santouka Ramen in previous posts: here and here. Japanese Ramen Kai came on the scene around the same time as the other two and I finally got to try it! I gotta say, out of the three, Japanese Ramen Kai is currently my favorite! Let me share some pictures to show you why…
Miso Ramen – $9.00
Look at that char siu…drool…
Goma Tan Tan Ramen – $9.00 plus Aji-tama (shoyu egg) – $1.50
I got the tan tan ramen and I LOVED it. It was delicious. See how thick the broth is? How does it compare to Goma Tei? I definitely think Japanese Ramen Kai is better. You can tell they grind the sesame seeds fresh because there is a bit of grittyness (not in a bad way) in the broth. While the broth looks heavy and thick – I don’t think it plays off that way when you eat it. I would definitely recommend it! The egg was good, not great. Not soft boiled but at least it wasn’t overcooked.
Gyoza – $5.00
Gyoza innard shot. It’s your typical gyoza, nothing special or bad about it.
