Worth a detour

I never noticed Ramenya even though I used to enjoy Ramen dishes in that exact location years ago. They need signage! A decal on the window doesn’t get your attention. I happened to notice it while looking for another place.

What a find! There is ramen and there is Ramenya Ramen! What was interesting was that on their menu were all the long lost dishes I can’t get anymore, since the places I used to get them all closed.

They have Tan Tan Mein! So Tan Tan Mein was my first order. Fabulous! So good that I went back on the next Monday to find out they are closed Mondays. Their Tan Tan Mein wasn’t like the Chinese Tan Tan Mein (also called Dan Dan Mein) of my youth. This was a coconut based version that I had to have again. Just enough spice, ground pork and ramen noodles to make anyone happy.

Also on the menu is Mabo Ramen which is what I used to eat at that location. Mabo Ramen is a spicy broth with the ramen noodles and tofu. I added sliced charshu to my order because it was one of the options available as an add on. Sadly this was not the Mabo Ramen I was hoping for, but what it was did not disappoint. It was a thick curry based soup full of ramen and tofu. When eating the Mabo Ramen, I noticed the people next to me had a plate of clear noodles with shrimp, which was my next order.

I keep going back. If you like noodles and tasty broths give Ramenya a try. You won’t be disappointed. They do Ramen right! If you don’t like ramen, they also do rice dishes and salads. You can’t go wrong.
