Went to Ken's for the first time over the weekend and was thrilled. I'm new to ramen so I can't compare to other places but I absolutely loved it. I had the special miso ramen and my pal had the special salt broth ramen. Both were terrific.
After reading old posts on the board I figure some people will be happy to hear that the place was packed. We sat at the bar and watched the kitchen. I was very impressed with the chef and the amazing attention to detail he gave every bowl. You would think he were plating at Clio he was so precise.
I loved my bowl. I didn't pay close attention to what I ordered since I asked the chef for a rec, so I was surprised to see the egg in the soup. I loved it! It was hard boiled medium and tasted so rich in the miso broth. The pork was also fantastic - tender and tasty.
My pal loved his bowl. I gave it a taste and think I may have liked the salt broth a little better. It wasn't as salty as the miso. It was more familiar, like pho chicken broth.
We started with shumai and that was also very good, dare I say "steamed to perfection." I love shumai and have it often so I can compare this to other places and I think Ken's is very good, The texture was great and the shrimp was very sweet.
I can't wait to go back and try more.
