Oreno Ramen came on my radar through a text of one of my friends. Upon asking her to come with me, she declined. But I found great substitute for her. One that eats very slowly but talks a lot in between. This gave me a chance to actually take a picture of the ramen, because I dug into mine completely oblivious that I hadn’t taken a picture. It smelled that good and better even, it tasted like it smelled.
But let’s start at the beginning. On Friday I usually don’t have a lunch break so I love the idea of leaving the office early and meeting a friend instead for a late lunch. We tried to make it weekly but managed only twice due to the changed circumstances. So on this last Friday we met at Oreno Ramen (where a bottle of hand sanitizer waited at the entrance). The restaurant was not busy, either due to the late lunch hour or already a preview on what was to happen.
We started with a shared portion of gyoza, filled with pork, cabbage, chive, spring onions and shiitake. They came pale to the table but showed a nice colour underneath upon closer inspection. What’s more important, they tasted heavenly. The perfect starter and when you share them, they are not too filling.
From here we moved on to the Miso ramen, which consists of ground chicken, bean sprouts, tamago (which is just an egg in Japanese), negi, nori, corn, and tobanjan. Lots of stuff inside where you don’t have a clue what it is. But do you need to know everything? It said savoury next to this ramen, and I was happy with that. So this is what came.
And as I said before, I started to eat without taking a picture. Thanks to my talking friend though, I managed to take one of her bowl. The ramen smelled enticing and probably that’s the reason why I started to eat right away. It was really yummy and very, very tasty. This is a real nice ramen place and I can’t wait to go back to try the other varieties which are available. Yours, Pollybert
