While roaming the street of Flushing. This hungry ferret was attracted to the shiny lights of a new building called the Queens Crossing Mall. Within this mall there was a interesting shop in the food court serving some Japanese Ramen. Since it from Japan, lets give it a shot, hopefully, I won’t pay dearly for this import.
Pork Dumplings were well cooked and pre soy sauced on the plate. There wasn’t really anything special about them. I suspect they are of the frozen kind.
Tenderous Rib Ramen was interesting. In the sense that the broth was very white. There is a slight layer of oil in the broth also. I needed to add a couple of shakes of the seasoning jar to enjoy the taste of the broth. The noodle was firm, I generally prefer a softer fresher tasting noodle, but it wasn’t bad. There portions are majority noodle / broth and smaller portion of vegetable / meat. This is typical of Japanese ramen dishes so don’t be surprised. The rib was fatty and tasted good, but there was just two pieces and 1/2 an egg.
Beef SukiYaki Ramen had the same noodle, broth and vegetables as the Tenderous Rib Ramen. It is basically a cookie cutter menu for all the ramens. The only difference are the meat and combinations of meat. The meat was cooked well and had a nice flavor.
Overall, the meal was not bad but I would call this the “golden arches” of the ramen world. For a quick lunch bite, this can be a way to go.
