Located on Church Street, Jinya Ramen Bar was a restaurant that caught my eye when I was making my way to work. One day, I decided to make my visit here and try out a new ramen spot for foodie utopia.
The inside seemed promising, the layout of the restaurant looked authentic and there were a couple of customers inside ordering ramen themselves, so my boyfriend and I came in with eagerness. We were led to a table for two by the window and were handed a colourful menu.
Each of us ordered two different types of ramen – except for myself I made it a combination with Gyoza and a soft drink.
On the top was my order of Chef’s Special Tokyo Tonkatsu Ramen with Gyoza. The gyoza wasn’t too impressive – it tasted like the frozen gyoza that you get at the market and did not taste too fresh. The ramen was okay in the first few bites, however I started to notice it did not taste like fresh ramen further into the meal. In fact, it sort of tasted like instant noodles, and the noodle itself was more of an egg noodle, as opppose to a ramen noodle.
My boyfriend ordered for himself the Spicy Chicken Ramen which he also complained that it wasn’t the greatest ramen he’s had. To make matters worse, the pricing on the ramen was equivalent, if not more expensive than other ramen places, like Kinton, which was significantly better.
Overall, there could have been a better place to get ramen than at Jinya Ramen Bar, and altogether I was not deeply satisfied with the taste of my ramen, I was glad to try it out, and with my favourite company.
