Dining Review: Ramen Ichiban

Right after my friend and I arrived in Auckland City from Waiheke Island, we went straight to a ramen place called Ramen Ichiban. It’s quite small for a restaurant but I can tell from the customers enjoying their meals I may have a good time too.

I ordered Seafood Ramen, while my friend ordered a curry and rice dish. While waiting, I was looking up at a wall nearest the kitchen where a combination of Japanese and English words were posted. I immediately took a picture of it, knowing this would be very useful when I go to Japan.



After a few minutes, we were finally served with our meals. The moment I tasted my ramen, the soup tasted really nice. However, as I continued eating, I realized I can definitely replicate this at home, if I get the taste of the soup right. The ingredients they placed into my ramen were pretty simple, I can easily buy them all from the supermarket. Not much seafood there though, only the surimi crab. Although it was reasonably priced and the bowl was big, it was a bit disappointing that only the surimi crab was there. They could have added a few more bits of prawns and fish.

Overall, it’s an average restaurant, but my review shouldn’t stop you from going there because it’s still worth trying at least once.
