Ramen Danbo – the best in town

As a fan of Japanese Ramen, I never missed out information about good ramen in Saigon and of course went there to try it! First time I read about this ramen was last year, from one of the group in Facebook called Foodies in Saigon. Many people seemed to like this place so I went there, but they were closed for renovation 😦

After a while, I read that they were opened again after renovation, but I hadn’t had time to go there. Until recently…

I invited my husband, who is a ramen lover as well, to join me on ramen testing! We came there just in time before all seats were taken. The customer after us were sent away because they were full. It’s interesting though how they treat the situation. They prefer to send the customer away rather than asking them to wait. They are really allowing time for existed customer to finish their food without hurry. So if you would come there in group, it is better to make reservation.

The waitress gave us menu and we had to write down our choice on order sheet. One sheet per person. Customized for each person.

I ordered Chasu Tonkotsu Ramen without additional topping. Noodle stiffness level was medium. And everything else was normal/medium as well. I used to do it to know how the taste should be. I didn’t order drink because they gave us cold water already. For free.

While waiting for the ramen to be cooked, I looked around at my table. They have beansprout dish, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, pepper, and red chili to be added to our food, if we want. They also provided rubber band! How thoughtful. Ladies, don’t worry if you don’t bring hair clip! You can use rubber band and eat ramen comfortably!

Tadaa! I mixed the red sauce with the broth and then sipped it. Yummy!! This ramen is really delicious! Something was not feel right for me when I ate this ramen. Apparently, the noodle. I should have ordered stiff noodle. I tried that noodle on my husband’s ramen and it was soooo good! Next time I will order stiff noodle instead of medium. The pork was sliced thin and was yummy as well. It’s a complete package!

Fried Chicken @ Ramen Danbo

We tried their fried chicken as well. And it was awesome! The chicken was cooked really well but still soft and juicy. They marinated the chicken so it didn’t taste plain. Had some flavor on it. I used the salt pepper and the mayonnaise as well ! I like salty food 😀

All in all, it was a great ramen experience! Definitely come back and recommend it to all of you!

Thank you for reading! Ciao.
