We were at Lucky Chinatown Mall last night, checking out the weekend street food market. Bf the ramen lover was tempted to try the piping hot ramen being sold by Tokyo Ramen King. After placing his order, we had to wait a long while. I urged bf to go back to the stall just to check if Tokyo Ramen King forgot about our order. They didn't. I'm not really sure why it took so long, because the staff did not look busy preparing other orders. The waiting time was even longer than in restaurants, but we were eating food from other stalls so we did not feel impatient.
When the ramen finally arrived, bf stood up to buy from another vendor. I sipped the ramen's broth while he was gone. I thought the soup tasted horrible but I did not want to influence bf's satisfaction so I did not say anything. When he was halfway through the ramen, I asked him what he thought of it. He told me that he did not like it -- he was just eating it because it was hot and because he paid P150 for it.
On the way home, bf kept ranting about his wasted P150. I couldn't blame him though. To be frank, the ramen was the worst I've had as well. There were toppings but the flavor was just not there. Add the P150 price tag and the looong waiting time and the ramen became even less appealing.
I'm still open to trying Tokyo Ramen King's maki but I really doubt we will risk spending money for their ramen again. I would rather have Nissin or Lucky Me noodles or even the simple mami sold by street vendors.
