Afternoon Hunt for an Auckland Ramen House
I always have been amazed by Japanese culture. Their love and appreciation for nature really moved me in many ways. Their continuous effort in keeping their culture on arts and craft only proves their loyalty to who they are. Those are few of the reasons why Japanese food also has a very special place in my heart. When I first got here in New Zealand, the first Japanese food I ate was a bento from a restaurant in Birkenhead.
One hot afternoon after a hard day at work, I was craving so bad for ramen. I suddenly remembered a ramen house named Ichiban Japanese Restaurant in Albert street which a friend suggested a while back. Since the last stop of the bus I was in was near the place, I decided to pay a visit. It was not really an ideal time and weather to eat ramen but, who cares? I was hungry. I arrived at a small restaurant after few minutes walk from the station, I greeted the waiter and read the menu that he handed me. It took me fifteen minutes to decide which to order because there was a lot to choose from. I finally chose a Miso Ramen, which had a larger image than the rest ( Yes, I am so proud of my poor decision-making skills.) and six pieces of Gyoza.
While waiting, I noticed the shelf full of manga (Japanese comic books) I took one expecting it to be written in English but unfortunately, they were in Japanese characters so I just ended up looking at the illustrations. After several minutes The ramen and gyoza were served (yay).
It took me quite a while to finish the mean because the serving was more than I can consume. I felt that it was scrumptious and a very fulfilling meal so I went home happy and contented. I highly recommend this place if you want to eat delicious ramen at an affordable price.
