Chicken & Chashu @ Sapporo Ramen Shogun

Since I was sick, I had a major craving for some ramen.  A quick consultation on Google Maps led me to Sapporo Ramen Shogun since it was only a few minutes away from the office.  I vaguely recall there being a "established since" sign, but I don't really remember the year; I remember it dated back to before the 2000s though.



I had the chashu ramen with shio base (~$7.50).  Although there was a generous helping of pork with my ramen, that seemed to be the only topping of substance.  (The few niblets of corn and the few bean sprouts do not count, in my opinion.)  The chashu was very lean, but not too tough.  I prefer my pork to be a bit fattier.  The broth itself was alright -- I don't think I can make a fair judgement when all my sinuses are congested.



Azim had the chicken ramen ($7.50) which looked to be soy sauce based.  The noodles at Sapporo Ramen weren't bad; they didn't have the perfect springiness that I tend to look for but they weren't overcooked either, so I can't complain.

Overall the meal at Sapporo Ramen wasn't the best, but it did the job.  Ramen is definitely better than chicken noodle soup.
