Benkei Ramen (CrossRoad)
545 West Broadway, Vancouver (map)
Recently a friend shared a picture of a bowl of curry ramen, and I was immediately intrigued. You see, if anyone ask me what's R's favorite food is, I would definitely go with Curry. So it was no surprised that R wanted to try it. After asking the friend, I found out that it was Benkei who was serving this new soup base.
I mean there are 2 just on Broadway, not to mention the original 2 in downtown. For this visited, I decided to check out one on Broadway near Fairview area.
here). After tasting the soup, I came to the conclusion it's grounded black pepper. Both R and I think the soup base now taste like Sichuan Mapo Tofu. I mean it's not necessarily a bad thing, but I want the old version back, because it was more original.
Other than the curry ramen mentioned above, they also had this new curry beef on rice combo. I am not entirely sure, but this new curry ramen/rice might be branch specific, because I don't see it mentioned anywhere else. Anyways, if you like curry, I would recommend you to check it out.
ps: anyone knows any other place that serves curry ramen or have any curry recommendations?
