Had a busy Saturday morning, errands, appointments-- the result of these things was that we were very hungry. Living in Honolulu, you have so many choices so we were looking for something different (at least for us). Let's have noodles. Looked up places on TripAdvisor and found good reviews for Goma Tei Ramen. As a first time visitor, the server took the trouble to let us sample the two broths -- the shoyu broth and the tan tan broth. The tan tan is a bit spicer and has a stronger sesame seed/sesame oil taste . The shoyu broth is milder, clearer. We chose the tan tan broth. I had the chicken tan tan ramen, my wife had the pork tonkatsu ramen. The chicken pieces were carefully sliced chicken breast pieces. Pork Tonkatsu is lean pork breaded and fried. The tonkatsu comes separate from the broth, with sauce on the side. The chicken was swimming in the broth. All I can say is that it was heavenly. The tan tan broth had just enough spice. (Truth be told, it's a bit heavy on the sesame oil for me -- next time, I'll go for the shoyu broth). The menu is full of different ramen or rice dishes. Tofu, veggies, pork, chicken. Even a tonkatsu loco moco rice dish. It's a small place with just a few tables and a counter. But things turn around quickly -- where most of the diners come in hungry and leave satisfied. The restaurant is located in the Ward Center shopping center, parking is easy. Yummy.
