Craving soup on one of the more erratically chilly days of this summer, I stopped by Ajisen Ramen (5229 Yonge Street) for a late weekday lunch. Ajisen Ramen is a chain restaurant from Japan that features a large variety of ramen; some traditional, some experimental. This one in particular is located just a stone’s throw away from North York Centre station.
The summer specials featured tomato-based broths for the ramen. ‘Refreshing tomatoes for the summer!’ I decided to order what looked like the most intriguing of the bunch: the Tomato Teppanyaki Filet Mignon Ramen.
TOMATO TEPPANYAKI FILET MIGNON RAMEN
This was pretty interesting. I really enjoyed the chunks of tomatoes and the broth! The noodles were a little undercooked. The teppanyaki filet mignon was good, but my taste buds were a little weirded out with having them in a soup, haha. I liked the tomato-based broth enough that I’d come back to try a different one of their summer soups if I was in the area.
Good spot for a quick and pretty filling meal. There were only a couple of other customers in at the time, but I noticed a lot more people come in for take-out. Service was good.
