went to the broadway location yesterday. really love the kindliness of the older servers who have been there for a while. Swapped me a miyagi when we noticed it looked like 3/4 smaller than the rest with zero questions.

the hostesses are cute too , a few of them actually

Went to Robson today after a semi-long hiatus.

Did the portion size for the <fish> inferno go down in the last few months? I could've sworn it was 9-10 pieces (because I would think about how great of a deal it was being almost $1 a piece), and my fiancee and I were shocked to see that we received 7 pieces for the toro inferno tonight. Not a complaint, but rather just curious.

For a place that doesn't really "specialize" in ramen, it was quite good especially on a cold day like today. The rest of our meal was quite good as well.

I remember at least a year ago you still had a deep-fried roll that had some cream cheese in it. I didn't see it on the menu today, so did that disappear? I was REALLY craving that for some reason today lol

Thanks for coming and good observation!
The Inferno did used to be 8 pieces but we recently changed to cut it into 7 slightly larger pieces, the size of the whole roll is just a tad shorter than before.

Infact we actually did hire a Japan trained "ramen" chef a few months ago, he used to work at a famous ramen house but wanted to expand his repertoire. We have him here now making an original ramen recipe from scratch and helping us cook the other noodle and rice dishes!

The cream cheese roll you are referring to is probably the "Unachee" roll which had unagi as well? It was rolled up and deep fried. We don't have it on the menu anymore but ask us next time and we could possibly make it for you anyway!

On an as non-biased note as possible, I used to love going to Santouka. I feel they have the best ramen in Vancouver hands down, but ever since we have this new chef making the ramen for us. I think it's comparable so I don't feel the urge to walk down the block anymore.

What kind of healthy rice options do you offer? I know you call one of them "imperial rice" but that's just a type of fried rice that come in different types, no? Do you have red/black/brown rice?

Also, great to hear about your ramen. I love Santouka and Kintaro, so I'd be definitely willing to try out what you're describing

The "Imperial Rice" is actually our own special blend of brown and black rice, it is VERY healthy. It isn't fried at all

I would recommend the Shio (light and aromatic) or the Spicy Lava (careful it IS spicy, unlike the typical Kara-Ramen). I asked our ramen dude to make it spicy(er) than anywhere else in Vancouver to give it a real kick.

Our house Tan Tan Ramen is our Japanese version of the traditional Taiwanese "Dan Dan Mien". Thick peanut sauce, not your typical Ramen soup. The Miso is good too but it doesn't stand out compared to the others, it's more of the "safe" bet.

Tonkotsu takes a lot of time and space.
You're not doing tonkotsu are you?

I would love to sit down one day and pick his brain

Took the GF here last week to try out the ramen, the kimchi ramen was literally one of the best I've ever had. The down side of this was that this was the GFs first time ever trying ramen and instantly fell in love with it. Tried taking her to other places and she was not impressed and only wants to go to Ebisu for ramen, which is super far for me

Hi Obsideon,
Love the tan-tan ramen, ajitama..not so much.
Just curious, I don't see a kaedama or extra noodle option I was wondering if you are going to have one in the future. I drop every now and then for a quick meal before/after work but I never get full. I know its not a ramen place..but..couldn't hurt to ask

Haha you didn't like the egg? I personally don't like it when it's boiled to the point of flakey or solid yolk. I love it still "wet".
Oh I didn't put the option in the menu but you can definitely get extra noodles, it's only 3 bucks.

I find it not flavourful enough although my gf think its enough
Also, the couple times I had it here I thought it wasn't runny/wet enough. The one I had today around 5 was pretty overcooked

So I spoke to the chef, some people do prefer it a bit more cooked (can't imagine why lol) but however I told him that runny is always best (IMHO) so he will give it a bit more flavour and make it more runny.

Although next time if you find your egg not done to your preference please let the staff know and we can change it for you right away!
