  • Another of my favorites is the pork ramen, where many thin slices of pork are fried, I think, and placed on top of the noodle
  • The bubble tea is okay for a dollar, but their regular price for bubble milk tea is four dollars, and definitely not worth it
  • As a whole, I like the food and the environment is a great place for a meal

      Ajisen Ramen is a Japanese ramen restaurant located in Parker Place mall. It’s big and clean, the food is good and not too expensive for ramen. It’s surprisingly empty most of the time, and even during lunch hours there’s about two or three tables of people maximum. It’s got plenty of good deals, such as the weekday lunchtime deal. You can get any side dish for one buck, and a bubble tea for a buck. The food is also relatively cheap, the noodle soups ranging in price from six dollars to about ten dollars. It’s not bad compared to some of its competitors around Richmond.

      My favorite noodle is the tenderous rib ramen. The pork rib is cooked till the bone is soft enough to eat, and it’s apparently a very good source of collagen as well. Another of my favorites is the pork ramen, where


      many thin slices of pork are fried, I think, and placed on top of the noodle. The soups that the noodle come in are very rich and flavorful, though I try not to drink too much because it’s probably very fattening. The menu offers a wide variety of things, but I don’t like spicy food, and the teppanyaki doesn’t even always come on the grilling plate! Once I ordered lamb teppanyaki ramen and the meat was already sitting inside my bowl waiting when the waitress delivered it.

      Timing is very important when coming to Ajisen. Their food gets quite cold if you come in past 12:30. Their side dishes are very tasty if you can manage to get them hot, but really not that appetizing if you come late. However, the bubble tea deal starts at 12:30 so unless you are willing to fork out four ...


      • dollars for a cup of subpar bubble tea, you need to come a couple of minutes after that. The bubble tea is okay for a dollar, but their regular price for bubble milk tea is four dollars, and definitely not worth it.

        Service is ok. There are usually two waitresses, and one is usually grumpy and scowls if you ask for something to be cleaned or anything that requires a little bit of extra effort from her. Usually to balance her out, there’s another waitress that is much more pleasant and mild-mannered. They sometimes also try to hide the fact that there’s a bubble tea deal and a raffle too. Once they outright denied the existence of a bubble tea deal, but I managed to get them the next time by showing them their own advertisement. Sheesh! However, the food is good enough to ignore the

        bad service.

        They have a weekly raffle as a new sort of advertising gimmick. It’s not really working well as the tables are emptier than ever. I don’t know what’s wrong with the place. They always ‘forget’ to give people raffle tickets though, and it gets exasperating to always have to ask for it. Some of the prizes include a widescreen TV and a netbook. I haven’t won yet though, even though I’m almost a weekly customer.

        As a whole, I like the food and the environment is a great place for a meal. It’s not the cheapest kind of food out there, but for a ramen restaurant the prices are reasonable. Service leaves a lot to be desired, and I wish they would stop trying to hide their deals. It’s very unprofessional of them to offer something and then try to hide the fact that they did.
