Today is a get-straight-to-the-point day – a clear sign that I’m still feeling sick and tired, despite a really fantastic day filled with much luck and good news. If you’re also in a lazy mood, then just know this: Men Kui Tei’s Tan-Tan Ramen ($8.50) matched my current state – salty. But, just like my day, it had some bright moments.
The curly noodles were cooked to perfection, a nice al dente, and they were topped off with generous portions of ground beef (that wasn’t spicy like it looked), bamboo shoots, bean sprouts and scallions. You could enjoy a bit of everything in every bite. So, while the broth may have contained one too many grains of salt, it still managed to enhance, not kill, the other flavors and the overall experience.
As a salty person myself, I would say to the non-salty people to proceed with caution. And, if you need more evidence that being “salty” isn’t the worst thing, read this article: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/8339647.stm. ;o) ;o) ;o)
Under $6 – It’s your lucky day!
