Slurping sounds are so appropriate when you’re……. Eating Ramen. (Grow up.) Ramen is one of those things that you grew up on, even if you didn’t realize it. A quick lunch, a hearty meal during the winter, or even when you’re in the mood for some kind of pasta. This was my first time visiting Copenhagen and this is one of the most beautiful cities I’ve been to. The historic landmarks, architecture, and amazing food all stood out which made my experience that much more enjoyable.
I wanted a quick lunch so decided to opt for Ramen. Ramen is one of those things that you can get anywhere, but good Ramen is challenging to find. It took me hours to find the right place, and I’m thankful I stumbled upon Slurp Ramen Joint. This small quaint restaurant, located in the heart of Copenhagen, focuses on key ingredients and making sure your experience is like no other. If you’re unfamiliar with Ramen, it’s considered the “soul food” of Japan. The basic components of it are : broth, toppings, and noodles. This is looked at as one of the best “cheap eats” all around the world.
During my visit, I couldn’t choose just one Ramen, so I decided to go with two different kinds. Veggie ramen and Shio Ramen were the two choices of the afternoon. The Veggie Ramen consisted of Roasted Oyster Mushrooms and Portobello Mushrooms, Red Onions, and Eggs. The broth was flavorful, seasoned to perfection, and rich. The noodles were a perfect al dente to go with the earthiness of the Mushrooms and the Sweetness of the Egg. The onions added an extra pungent taste to the overall dish which complimented the saltiness of it.
The next Ramen dish was the Shio Ramen. It’s a Salt Based Ramen topped with Pork, Egg, Spring Onions, Arugula, and Lemon Thyme. This was more of a lighter Ramen. Perfect for someone who doesn’t want to get filled too quickly. The Pork was salty but the balance of the Lemon Thyme didn’t over power it. The Arugula and Spring Onions were the star of the show. Spring Onions have a very sharp taste but put it with a sweet egg and a slightly salty Broth it works wonders.
The last dish that was ordered was the Sweet and Sour Chicken. This dish was more of a dry version of Sweet and Sour Chicken. The Chicken was a bit spicy, which was different for me, because I’m used to it being wet. The pieces were on the meaty side so you don’t have to work about “mini-bites”. Another pleasing dish to round out a fantastic lunch.
Overall, if you’re looking for a great Ramen spot to go to then look no further. I was thoroughly pleased that my experience was better than expected.
