We went to a Ramen restaurant in Richmond, BC this weekend because it has good reviews. G-Men is operated by the same group who owns Gyoza King and Gyo-O, and they hire mostly Japanese staff. We had a pleasant experience there because we went there at 2:30 to avoid the line-ups. The staff were courteous and the price is reasonable for the amount of food. We definitely would not mind going again.
We tried the "Assari Shoyu Ramen" and "Negi Teriyaki Chicken Donburi". The broth was great but it is not as "Assari" as I thought. It still has quite an amount of oil floating around. (Assari means light and simple. For example, not too greasy, not too salty or not too sweet.) I still think this restaurant offers good value and quality. However, comparing with Santouka in Downtown Vancouver, something is still different. Santouka really amazed us the other time.
