Vancouver - Does all the ramen taste the same?

I have been to most of the ramen spots downtown and I find that they all have about a similar level of flavour. Some days one may taste better than the other. Here is how I like to think of the breakdown of the three ramen spots downtown.

Kintaro - I get rich soup and the cha shu bowl. It costs about ten dollars for the cha shu bowl but I am happy because I get four pieces of meat. The atmosphere could be a bit nicer but it suits eating ramen fine.

Benkei - Tasty, doesn’t stand out from the rest but definitely hangs in there. The interior is nice and adding extras is only 50 cents so it is a good deal.

Motomachi - Most expensive of the group, atmosphere is nice. I find it is the tastiest but is it worth the price. It is not much more but ramen is supposed to be cheap.

Menya - Lucky they are on the other side of the bridge cause I would always pass them to go to any of the above three. The gyozas are great but I find the soup doesn’t have enough meat or vegetables.

I posted a comparison of these ramen spots on

Does anyone else agree that none of the ramen spots stand out from each other?
