Taishoken Ramen / 大勝軒

June 6, 2014

Shio Ramen: Taishoken's pork & chicken broth seasoned w salt (w pork belly cha shu) - 2+

J's comment > broth slightly richer than the avg ramen broths from other ramen joints in Vancouver (but not heavy!); not too salty; FYI you can choose the type of cha shu you want, either pork shoulder (leaner cut) or pork belly (fattier); ramen noodles cooked perfectly al dente

Special Shoyu Ramen: Taishoken's pork & chicken broth seasoned w soy sauce, w aji-tama (egg), extra meat and extra seaweed - 2

J's comment > not bad; broth just as rich as the Shio above, but tad saltier, hence I'm not as fond of this version of the broth; the egg was incredibly soft and had the right molten egg yolk consistency that ramen eggs should have; pork shoulder was tender but a tad lean for my tastes.

Extra Comment
As you can see from the menu, the tsukemen isn't available yet, but I'll definitely be revisiting to try that version of noodles out.
