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.
