My wife Kit. She kicks ass – she’s always up to try something new!

The table accompaniments. Surprised that there wasn’t any togarashi to sprinkle.

We’ve tried the izakaya (appetizers) at all the ramen restaurants we’ve been to. This is their ‘Jinya Bun” – ‘steamed bun stuffed with slow-braised pork chashu, cucumber, and baby mixed greens served with JINYA’s original bun sauce and kewpie mayonnaise’

Here are their ‘Mini Tacos.’ ‘slow-braised pork chashu and kimchee in a crispy wonton taco shell’

Decided to try takoyaki this time – ‘battered octopus over egg tartar topped with kewpie mayonnaise, okonomiyaki sauce, fresh cut green onion and smoked bonito flakes’

For the main course, Kit opted for a rice bowl – she said it was pretty good.

Here’s what I ordered (click to enlarge), their Chicken Wonton Ramen (wantanmen). Their menu had this to say – ‘chicken broth: wonton, spinach, green onion » served with thin noodles.‘ The noodles were indeed thin. They married to the broth just perfectly. The broth was extremely good – very rich and gave me that same feeling as having noodles that had a runny egg yolk on them – pure bliss. The wonton were extremely good as well with nice texture and innards. Chicken flavor throughout. I can’t explain how absolutely fantastic this was and can say easily at this point that this bowl eclipses all other bowls of ramen I’ve sampled in the area, putting them to shame. A no-brainer 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.

This greeted me at the bottom of the bowl and honestly I was sad to see it. It meant that my ramen was indeed gone and my short, tasty life at Jinya Ramen Bar had ended. Perhaps we shall return and try something else next time.

This variety comes by way of Japan Ramen Box. Japan Ramen Box is a new subscription box outfit with neat varieties to check out! Go visit their website and have a look!  This is wantan men – let’s see what Wikipedia has to say about this variety –

A wonton (also spelled wantan, wanton, or wuntun in transcription from Cantonese; Mandarin: húndun or húntun) is a type of dumpling commonly found in a number of Chinese cuisines.

There are a number of related, Chinese-influenced noodle dishes in Japan, often served alongside ramen in ramen establishments. They do not include noodle dishes considered traditionally Japanese, such as soba or udon, which are almost never served in the same establishments as ramen. 

Wantan-men has long straight noodles and wonton, served in a mild, usually salt tasted soup.

You’ve probably had wonton soup in Chinese restaurants in the United States; watan men is like ramen with the wontons in there. Let’s give it a look!

A fluffy powder.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, chashu pork, hard boiled egg and spring onion. The noodles were engorged, that’s for sure. What surprised me is that they kind of hid wantan inside them somehow. It was honestly not expected. The wantan was light and of alright quality. The broth was as expected – much like wonton soup you’d find here in the states but a little better. To be honest, this was very satisfying stuff – hard to put down. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.   JAN bar code 4901071100018.
