Kopan Ramen

Kopan Ramen has almost 1,700 reviews on Yelp with 4 stars rating.
We were very much looking forward to try this place.
Unfortunately, this ramen place didn’t do it for us.

It was Monday night, and the restaurant was completely full with tons of people waiting.
The wait wasn’t too bad since turn around time per table is pretty quick.
We were seated in about 15 minutes.

Kopan拉麵在Yelp上面有將近1,700個食評,評價有四顆星,
所以我們超期待來試試這家拉麵店,
可惜吃完以後還頗失望的。

我們是昨天星期一晚上去的,
店裡爆滿,還有好多等位的客人,
不過等的時間很快,因為吃拉麵的客人都吃蠻快的,
我們大概等15分鐘就有位子了。

Kopan Ramen with Chashu | $10

First you pick the size of the ramen. Small is $8, and regular is $10.
Then you pick how spicy you want the broth to be.
Next you choose the meat from 3 options: chashu, fatty pork or chicken.
Finally you can add extra toppings for additional cost.
We both got the regular size with spicy broth and chashu.

The ramen came with green onion and seaweed.
They didn’t put the chashu on top of the ramen, but immersed it in the noodle.
You get 2 thin slices with the order. It was tender and fatty. We liked the chashu.
The noodle was thin and al dante. No complaint there, either.
But the broth… It tastes ok initially. It was rich and creamy.
Then the more you taste it, the more you feel there’s lack of depth and true flavor.
It feels like all the flavor comes from heavy salt, sugar, and MSG.
We were both very very thirsty after eating the ramen.

拉麵的點法是先選小碗還是正常版,小碗$8,普通一碗是$10,
然後再選湯要多辣,接著選肉,有三種選擇:叉燒,肥豬肉,或是雞肉,
最後選還要不要加錢多加料,我們兩個人都是選普通+辣+叉燒拉麵。

拉麵上桌時已經有了蔥絲和一片海苔,
他們的叉燒不是放在麵上方,而是埋在湯裡,
這樣賣相一點都不好看,很怪異,
一份拉麵有兩片薄叉燒,叉燒很嫩,算是好吃的,
拉麵是細麵,煮的軟硬也剛好,
但是湯頭… 我們就有話要說了,剛喝的第一口覺得好像還不錯,
是很濃郁的那種大骨湯頭的味道,但是越喝越覺得好像差的點什麼,
並不是那種會讓人覺得越喝越好喝的湯,反而是越喝越不對勁的湯,
湯的香味沒有層次,味道也說不上來就是哪裡不對味,
感覺就是充滿了高鹽,高糖,和味精的一碗湯,
我們吃完這碗拉麵超口渴的。

Kopan Chashu | $2
Red Ginger | $0.75

We ordered 2 extra toppings: Chashu and red ginger.
For $2 extra, you get 3 extra pieces of chashu.

我們有多點了份叉燒和醃紅薑,
叉燒一份$2有三小薄片。

Kopan Ramen
Sesame Chicken | $5

We also ordered a sesame chicken.
The chicken pieces were tiny. It was like little cubes of dry chicken.
It just didn’t feel right. It’s like they gave us all the leftover chicken scraps.

我們還點了份日式炸雞,上桌時覺得怎麼雞肉都這麼小塊,
簡直就是雞丁,而且很乾很硬,感覺好像是把剩菜雞肉給我們這樣。

Kopan Ramen
Sesame Chicken | $5

We sent the sesame chicken back to the kitchen.
The new plate was much better. But their sesame chicken was just ok.

問了服務生後幫我們換了一盤,
新的這盤好多了,但是也不算是一份好吃的日式炸雞。

The best thing we had that night was Dr. P’s Saporo draft beer.
We know a lot of people like Kopan Ramen, but it’s not for us.
(Wow… my tummy looks sooooooooooo big! 36 weeks!!)

這天吃得最滿意的就是公園先生的生啤酒,
很多人都喜歡這家Kopan拉麵,很可惜這家完全不是我們的菜。
(我的肚子好圓好大啊!36週囉!!)
