ramen rating: chibaki chuukasoba

If you’re in Torrance this weekend, you can stop by Mitsuwa to try the real Chibakiya ramen. The rest of us can settle for the bowl ramen version of their chuukasoba. Seems like a poor substitute, doesn’t it? We’ll see…

The bowl ramen comes with a packet of oil, a piece of nori, and possibly the biggest pack of soup flavor I’ve ever seen for a instant ramen. The ramen also comes with a few pieces of menma and green onions.

The soup has a mellow shoyu and fish flavor. It’s decent for a bowl ramen but not particularly exciting. The noodles, however, were a real disappointment. The skinny starchy noodles were very bland, and I might as well have been eating the noodles alone with a bowl of soup on the side. Hmm…deja vu, or am I just running out of things to say?

I expected more from a “name-brand” bowl ramen but at best I can only rate Chibaki’s chuukasoba a middling 5 out of 10.
