ajisen ramen don’t have any actual ramen that is vegetarian because they use pork stock in all their broths, which is a damn shame because ramen is amazing. they do however have a decent vegetarian menu that has a few snacky things and some noodle dishes, and this is what we had:
agedashi tofu and hiyashi chuka (cold noodle salad) with egg on the side
nasu dengaku. eggplant, yo!
they were super cute about the egg situation - we were trying to work out if the egg served with the noodles would be that delicious seasoned egg that comes with ramen in which case the non-vegan could eat it, so we asked for it on the side, and they brought us out this little dish of sliced up egg.
food was tasty, agedashi wasn’t anything special but the noodles were fine and the eggplant was crazy rich. delicious and quick and sweet service.
rating: 3.5 out of a possible 5 bowls of ramen (1.5 points lost due to lack of vegetarian ramen and the bland agedashi tofu)
