Benkei Ramen Noodle Shop on Robson


After an entire day of walking around downtown to all the various events on Saturday, I was famished. Last week we had Korea food so M and I decided we should try Ramen this time round. We walked down Robson to Benkei Ramen Noodle Shop...we didn't know there was a closer one on Thurlow otherwise we would have gone to that one instead!

They offer a couple of different soup bases and you can order some additional ingredients if you want. You can also "Sumo Size" your order for 50 cents more where you get an extra 50% more noodle. We both did so.

My friend ordered the Miso Ramen - pork, bean sprouts, bamboo shoots and green onion. The waiter said this is the most popular among the customers.  

I ordered the Shio Ramen - which is basically the same thing except different soup base. I think mine is a seaweed or kelp based soup. It tastes really good! The menu says that they don't use MSG and I think it is true because I wasn't thirsty after I drank the soup. So yummy!
