Ramen. Most of us know it as that stuff we survived on in college. I’m here to tell you that we’ve been wronged by that stuff and I have proof.
Meet The Ramen Truck. Located on S.E. 33rd off of Hawthorne, you’ll find this pale yellow truck tucked away in an alley. They make their own noodles (yes, it’s true!) and broth. The three-step process to order is outlined on the truck:
1. Choose your broth — white or garlic. Be forewarned, their broth contains chashu (pork).
2. Order your size — small or regular.
3. Choose your add-ons. This includes a hard-boiled egg, corn, kim chi, extra green onions, extra nori and extra pork (chashu).
That’s it! Your order is prepared and brought out to you on a cute vintage tray. It was a lovely day when I visited, so I took advantage of the outdoor table and took the time to really enjoy my ramen. This was so much better than that other stuff, and very reasonably priced. Baseline price is $5-7, not including add-ons. Now go and discover what ramen is really all about!
