Shin Sen Gumi – Ramen (San Gabriel)

By in 01: San Gabriel

No need to head over to South Bay for Shin Sen Gumi‘s Ramen anymore~ 😀 They opened a chain at San Gabriel for awhile. As expected there’re long queue everytime we went.

The ordering paper gave you choices for 1) hard, normal or soft noodle, 2) oily, normal, less oily soup and 3) strong, normal or mild taste. I had Normal, Normal and strong. There’s a list of toppings you can add from cha-shu to pickled vegetables.

Hakata Ramen. As proper ramen place goes, they would only serve one type of signature soup. The Shin Sen Gumi soup base is cooked with pork bone. But I’m more impressed by the noodles. It’s thinner than most Japanese ramen, with more springy texture (= my preference). Very good. I should try their noodle at ‘hard’ level next time.

Half-sized Potstickers, they are smaller than usual, perfect if you don’t want too much meat fillings to stuff your stomach.

I saw people keep ordering extra noodle after they finished their bowl, sure don’t want those remaining soup wasted. There’re also bottles of seasoned soy sauce at your reach to add flavor for those who have a salty palette.

Shin Sen Gumi’s Shabu Shabus chain will be opening in Monterey park soon as well.

    Hard noodles with extra noodles, light oil, heavy base is the way to go. =)
