Benkei Ramen: Miso Ramen
Okay, so this post is a bit late… about 10 months late. In that time, Benkie changed their menu a bit, closed down, and is finally gearing back up to reopen next week. Benkei Ramen is a busy little ramen shop on West Broadway, near the Cambie Skytrain Station. We were lucky that we arrived around 11:30am because diners quickly filled all of the seats by noon.
We started out with some pan-fried gyoza and then moved onto the ramen. Their dishes are customizable and you just pay for whatever you add on to your ramen.
The Tori-Shio Ramen ($8.95 plus $0.60 for corn, and $0.60 for half an egg) is served with spinach, bamboo shoots, nori, green onion and grilled chicken. The clear broth is quite light and the flavours are a bit too subtle for my liking.
The Miso Ramen ($8.95 plus $0.60 for nori and $0.60 for half an egg) is served with bamboo shoots, bean sprouts, green onion and cha-su. I felt that this combination seafood/pork broth with miso had much better flavour.
After a while, all of those add-on items pile up so it can be very easy for your ramen meal to skyrocket in price.
They also had a number of special items listed on the walls… I might have to come back here and try those one day.
