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.
