If you’re looking to get away from the Las Vegas Strip for a place that is fast and affordable, this is the place. This ramen house is located less than 2 miles from the Strip, down the street from the Palazzo / Wynn hotel off Spring Mountain in an extremely busy Asian strip mall.
We arrived a little after 6:30 PM on a Monday evening. There were a few tables occupied, and we were seated in a booth in the front. If you check in on yelp, you can get an free appetizer side of yakisoba. It’s a tiny little plate, but hey, it’s free!
The menu isn’t just ramen, but has a little bit of everything, from other noodles like udon adn yakisoba, to rice bowls, to curry, to grilled items like fish or chicken.
Since their business name says Ramen, I decided to stick with charshu (roast pork) Ramen as my choice, which came with a 1/2 egg, bamboo shoots, nori, and I added corn and bean sprouts to my order. I was given 4 generous slices of pork. Karen even commented that the slices were thicker than the usual places we go to.
I read mix comments about the broth, and I personally felt it was fine. It was not extremely salty, which I was thankful for as I didn’t feel like drinking water all night. It tasted like it was chicken / pork stock.
Karen had the shoyu ramen, which came with two slices of pork, bamboo shoots and an egg. Stephen didn’t feel like noodles, and did not know what to get, so I suggested for him to get the beef bowl. It was a very generous bowl and the meat was marinated just right. Not too sweet, and it look like they use sukiyaki style beef. The beef bowl also came with salad and a bowl of miso soup.
Overall a very inexpensive dinner for three people, less than $30. Aside from the terrible parking, I would recommend this place if you’re looking for cheap eats away from the Las Vegas strip. If you find a parking spot, grab it. Customers don’t know how to navigate around this congested strip mall, and will do anything for a parking spot, including driving the wrong way.
