I didn’t think it was possible, but I may have found a bowl of ramen that’s too rich. Because I just went to a local chain called Tenkaippin that specializes in an incredibly hearty chicken-based soup, and yowza.
It’s the heaviest bowl of ramen (or any soup) that I’ve ever had. It really did taste like a bowl of gravy with noodles in it.
I don’t know if you can tell from that picture, but the soup was clinging to the noodles like alfredo sauce on fettuccine. It was nuts.
That’s not to say that I didn’t enjoy it — it was actually quite good. But it still probably falls under the category of “too much of a good thing.” I don’t think a bowl of ramen has ever left me feeling so full.
