Bangkok: Ramen Tei

Kindly accept my apologies for MIA. I am now having my first illness of 2011 with running nose and sore throat. No food tasted good right now. So I went through my camera and found pix of food I had at Ramen Tei last month (well, technically last year but that sounds bad isn't it?). This post will be a bit of back-dated, sorry about that!

I went to Ramen Tei with N, my uni friend who is also a fangirl of a band from same company as me. She's very bubbly person and good fun to talk to. She loves Japan and even works for Japanese company so she suggested we went for Ramen Tei for pre-X'mas dinner since they have variety of food.

We ordered so many food for two persons! Their mabotofu (stir fried spicy tofu) was the best. It wasn't as spicy like when we eat at Szechuan/Chinese restaurants so it was very easy to eat and enjoy.

The repeat dish from last post was stir-fry black chinese mushroom with egg. I still love it, though my friend was like 'You know, you can do it at home.'. I know I can but would it taste as nice as this? I don't think so!

N's spicy ramen

My Miso Ramen

N ordered spicy ramen which gave a few kicks after the soup-slurping moment. I ordered Miso ramen. It was so so. Too ordinary that I have nothing to say. I think the main dish of Ramen Tei is rather medicore while the side dishes are amazingly good.

As I mentioned, N was such a good fun. We were able to finish all dishes while talking and probably stayed inside the restaurant for almost 3 hours! As for Ramen Tei, I would go for the side dishes stuff again in hoping to find their good ramen!

  1. YUMM!!

    Happy Monday Darling! xo

    Oh, and have you checked out my $75 EmersonMade GIVEAWAY yet??

  2. I love that tofu dish though I usually order them at Chinese restaurants.

    I look forward to reading about more restaurants you come across so I can check some of them out for my "something new" resolution. Maybe we should join forces sometimes! Also look forward to seeing what bag you get- I'm such a bag lover.

  3. Yum ramen :D Have you ever tried a bowl of good shio-ramen (salt soup)? Its the best thing to have when you are cold/you have had a bit to drink lol
    Anyway, hope you get well soon.

  4. You know, the ramen sound delicious. I wish we had more real ramen places here in California....

  5. They all look yummy but not quite authentic. I find it almost impossible to find authentic ramen outside Japan. Your miso ramen looks very close to something you get in Japan, but that spicy ramen...I don't know, man, the toppings don't look very familiar.

    I hope you'll get better soon!
