Benkei Ramen on Thurlow

Benkei Ramen on Thurlow opens up

Finally had a chance to check out the freshly renovated Noodle Express, er…I mean newly constructed Benkei Ramen on Thurlow today along with Ed and a few coworkers.
The lineup was already out the door when we arrived, but somehow within a few minutes we were able to get a table for 5 ahead of a few couples ahead of us.
The interior is pretty much the same as its sister location further down Robson with slightly more seats (not very comfortable). The menu is still straightforward, with its different variety of soup bases in the front and toppings/extras in the back. Benkei Ramen (Thurlow) menu
Though everyone else got it, I HAD to get something other than plain miso ramen, cause its what I had for dinner pretty much the whole week (orz), and ordered the Akioni (red devil) spicy miso with the works (but no butter, so its all healthy). It wasn’t that spicy though, so anyone could take the extra flavour kick. They were out of the Akioni right after we ordered, so apparently its pretty popular. No surprises here. Its just as good as the other location.

We’ll be back. Often.

    We drove past what looks to be a new Benkei location off Quebec and 5th Ave. Looked like it was still under renos but near completion.

  2. I love ramen a lot. I use to eat also before at Benkei Ramen when it was not renovated. But now I have moved to other place and I can no longer go there but I wish someday I could go back to the place and eat my favorite ramen:)

    thanks,
