you are not making ramen, you are making instant noodles, no one would pay $5 for whatever you're serving up

Ramen is a Japanese noodle dish that originated in China. It is served in a meat- or fish-based broth, often flavored with soy sauce or miso

what part of of this definition relates to what you do? noodle + broth = ramen?

does campbell's chicken noodle soup qualify as well?

It's not instant noodles like Mr.Noodles brand. The stuff I buy actually is ramen unless they are false advertising since it states on the package the noodles are "ramen"

They do sell Frozen Ramen like Shoyu Aji Nama Ramen at TNT (i think the soup is soy sauce)...

On the topic Santouka Hokkaido on robson is probably the best I've tasted. Been to Kintaro, Benkei, Menyi, and Motomachi.

The pork jowl at Santouka is excellent and they have nice dipping ramen too. And the nifty soup spoons that hang on the side of the bowl.. HOT DAMN...

I go to benkei quite often as i work just around the corner from the robson and thurlow one. I havent tried many ramen places other then gmen and a couple others here and there but benkei is definitely my favorite. "Shoyu" is my favorite and recommend it everyone. my usual order is shoyu extra noodles and kimchi =)

All you do is show your Go-Card / University Pass and instead of paying for $1 for the noodles, you pay only 50 cents, not that big of a diff TBH

Sorry guys! I gotta bump this thread to see how people still like ramen.
Do you think Kintaro ramen got a little salty this time?

I DO! xD

I fucking love Benkei. I eat there all the time with my buddies. The prices are pretty cheap indeed (especially compared to other Ramen restaurants), and it's incredibly good.

My personal favorite is the cream-based Ramen Benkei serves:



It's AMAZING! Though I've tried almost all the other Ramens on the menu and they were all superb as well. Deh-lee-shoos!

FYI, if you want the student discount, APPARENTLY you have to show it BEFORE YOU ORDER. Or else it's not valid...that's what I was told.

Which is fucking gay.

Motomachi is freaking disgusting. After finishing my noodles, I went to the washroom for a leak and when I came back to drink my soup, I see a thick layer of grease floating on top. I stirred the grease into one big blob. It was so nasty. I lost my appetite after that.

Santouka Ramen on Robson was solid when I went Friday. Kara miso ramen = , broth at the exact right temperature made the already amazing taste that much better.

They've been closed since May 12th as far as I know.
I heard some sort of dispute between the owners...

Well that's disappointing. Also, I don't think it's that hard to make half-decent ramen. Throw crap stuff into a pot and boil the crap out of it, even I was able to make it on my first try. To make it good however is a whole different story.

I just went back to Santouka for the 2nd time in 2 weeks. Had the shio toroniku ramen. There really isn't any other broth or meat in the city that compares. So many layers of flavor. I couldn't imagine even making my meat taste close to that. It's quite humbling really.
