Sometimes, it's the totally wrong things that feel so right. And at Wrong Ramen, everything's just so right.
Wrong Ramen is a cool new ramen joint offering both traditional as well as surprising new ramen creations that typify Wrong Ramen's quirky and offbeat vibe. Like The Communist, a unique ramen concoction inspired by spicy Chinese hotpots with seven Asian spices; or the F. U. Ramen, topped with Black Pepper Spam, crisp bacon, and fried egg on a garlic pepper broth, a cool breakfast in a bowl. Wrong ramen? Not just yet...sounds right to me.
Inside, the tiny space is maximized with a single long table for six that can be adjusted with dividers, and a counter table for three, much like the small ramen houses in Tokyo. Upstairs, a larger dining area is available, just look for Darth Vader to lead you up the stairs. The minimalist, almost zen-like look, give Wrong Ramen a cool vibe, and it's just the place to chill and enjoy a bowl of ramen.
The quirky and off-beat character of Wrong Ramen is evident in the few framed posters adorning its dramatic black walls, all the way to the menu, which is quite an interesting read.
Once seated, all the condiments are neatly layed out on one side of the table. Then, you notice little touches that make dining at Wrong Ramen so much fun. No ordinary salt and pepper shakers here...
Wrong Ramen offers a variety of beverages, including local and premium imported beers. Try the Sweet Potato Iced Tea (L) or the soothing Lemongrass Iced Tea, perfect when paired with the spicy signature ramen.
I go for the Sea Men Ramen (P 345, another cool pun one can only expect at Wrong Ramen), a large bowl loaded with clams, shrimps and squid in a light garlicky clam broth topped with fresh vegetables and garlic oil.
The light broth binds all the fresh ingredients together in a delicious blend of flavors and textures. The thin noodles are firm with just enough bite, a cool introduction to Wrong Ramen's signature ramen dishes.
Then, there's Wrong Ramen's Tantanmen (P 395), a rich, creamy sesame broth with a nice spice that gradually builds for a cooling heat. Topped with ground pork and shredded chasiu, it's a hearty and comforting bowl of noodles.
Cool, quirky, and fun. Wrong Ramen definitely gets it, and gets it right. But do come early, or be prepared to wait for a table. It seems a lot of people are enjoying the wrong things...at Wrong Ramen.
