AS an oriental, I´ve tried as many ramen shop as possible and Orochon has fallen into one of the worst one I´ve ever eaten!
Miso paste??? Salt??? Shoyu??? soup base? Come one! Who in the world that makes soup base using these 3 ingredients?!
What? The Special #2? The guy from Man Vs. Food has no taste in food! Just watch his program might be fun but would anyone eat what he eats? It's just for entertainment sake! But food sake, this ramen is ZERO!!!
TOO MUCH SALT! TOO MUCH SHOYU! TOO MUCH MISO PASTE!
I ordered extra cha-shu meat that doesn't even taste anything close to real cha-shu! It tasted like a piece of well cooked pork!
The soup doesn't even taste hot enough for a ramen soup!
I think Orochon's only merit that it can cook up a spcicy mixture just to camouflage it's bland taste.
The restaurant caters to mostly westerners that doesn't know the real ramen that cooks up in Asia or in Japan itself...therefore, it might live up to the expectations of the west but if the shop is set up in Japan, I think it has already closed its door so fast that you can even say oro....
