Since the last ramen post sparked so many comments and the fact that I have ten days do try all the ramen spots, I figured I should pay a visit to Benkei to try the ramen again.

My favorite thing about Benkei is the value, you can add more toppings for just 50 cents more. I added more bamboo shoots and an egg. I love having an egg in my soup. You even get a stamp card and when you get to your tenth bowl, it is free.

I had 25 mins on my parking and I managed to sit, order, eat and pay all in that time frame. The service was good, and the food came quick and was nice and hot. I ordered the miso ramen ($7.50), the broth was good but again nothing insane. When I think of all these ramen spots none of them stand out as being a clear undisputed champ. If you like ramen I would go recommend paying this place a visit as it is one of the cheaper ramen spots.

I like Benkei...I do have a personal preference for Kintaro though. But they are both really good.

I just posted my review of Kintaro which you can check out at:

soup not as good as kintaro
but the bbq'ing of the pork is awesome

dont you wish you could take the best of every ramen spot and turn that combo into the best spot hands down?
there's a little bit of best for each spot
like voltron
