One of my college friends, who happened to also be my colleague at work, suddenly developed a craving for ramen, and the next thing we knew, we were already in Kenji Tei Ramen House enjoying a warm bowl of ramen! Yes, it was that fast because our workplace is conveniently located near the Greenbelt malls.

Anyway, this will just be a brief blog post, since I don't know much about the story behind Kenji Tei. All I know is that it falls under the Top 10 Ramen of some food blogs (well, that is according to Myles Sia, the one who craved for some ramen).

This is what I particularly ordered for myself, and I have to admit that I loved how the broth tasted at first. However, after tasting the broth of my friends' ramen, it seemed a little dull in comparison. Still, I enjoyed the ramen because of the generous serving of the meat and seafood ingredients.

Note: Two of my friends mentioned that I shouldn't order seafood ramen because it's not a specialty of Ramen Houses. Hmmm, what's your view on this?

Miso Ramen || P265 - Regular || P355 - Large

Although I wasn't able to try everything this ramen could offer, I was able to taste the broth, and it was really potently good! I used to avoid the miso flavor for my ramen, but after this, I might go for one next time!

This is what my friend, Myles, ordered because he wanted to have something different. Fortunately, he didn't regret his decision to go for this ramen! Yeah, I got to try the broth and it was really distinctly flavorful and spicy!

Shoyu Ramen || P245 - Regular || P325 - Large

This Shoyu Ramen was something I also enjoyed due to its simplicity (in appearance) while still maintaining the complexity of the taste!

Gyudon || P305

Although I appreciate how unconventional the Gyudon was prepared and presented, I failed to appreciate it to the fullest. It was probably because I'm used to the usual Gyudon wherein the beef are placed on top of the rice with raw egg yolk on top.

Ramen is best enjoyed with awesome people!
Interestingly, we invited our Japanese friend (an intern in the audit firm I work in) to join us for this lunch, and he gladly accepted. I asked what he can say about the ramen, and he mentioned that it was the same with what he is enjoying in Japan. He further added, "Maybe the chef is Japanese".

How about you - do you recommend Kenji Tei?

Compared to other famous ramen places, Kenji Tei could be considered relatively affordable (while still being able to maintain the authenticity of the flavor).

Since the Gyudon wasn't as fantastic as I expected it to be, I'm being lured to think that you should only go for some ramen here in Kenji Tei. I don't know if this would be valid; hence I want to know more about your thoughts about the place.

  1. Stick to ramen, maki and sashimi. I have tried their katsudon. It was served similar to gyudon and the it was not good as well.

  2. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on Kenji Tei, Sir Chua! :D
