Ramen Zundo

Seeking shelter from a cold, windy autumn day, we ventured to Ramen Zundo, a restaurant tucked away in the crevices of World Square. We ordered a tsukemen, a tan tan men ramen, a two “thick” broth ramen. There’s various varieties of “thick” and “light” broths offered, mainly depending on chilli paste and black garlic. If you’ve been to Gumshara, you’ll know what to expect from a thick broth. Ramen Zundo’s attempt seemed half-hearted compared to Gumshara, which specialises in amazingly thick, tasty ramen broth. One of my friends commented that it the broth here doesn’t  hold up to Gumshara standards. I had a taste of one of the thick broths and to agree with him, it was a tad bland. An oddity was that I was given a little bowl and pestle to grind my own sesame in for the tan tan men. I found that the ground sesame stuck to the bowl to the extent where I wouldn’t be able to put it into my soup. I was disappointed that egg didn’t come with all the ramen on offer.

Everyone agreed this was the sort of thing we needed after being blasted by winds in the city. Come here if you want something inoffensive to the palate. Ramen Zundo is exactly what we expected – average ramen for cheap prices.
