Ichiban Boshi currently has a Summer Cold Noodle Special Set ($15) where you can combine any cold ramen with any drink (except Suntory Premium Beer/Otokoyama Sake & Wine Bottles) saving you some loose change . Though please do tell the staff you're ordering the "Cold Noodle Special" as it's only on offer Mon-Wed (After 3PM) till the 28th February.
Summer is ending so soon ahhh !
Moving on to the good stuff, I took the plunge and went for the TanTan Tsukemen Cold Ramen which came with a giant serving of cold noodles to be dipped in a spicy tan tan soup w/ choy sum, minced pork & gooey boiled egg.
If you're looking for a New Years resolution, trying Cold Ramen should be one. I'll be honest, I was expecting to eat "warm" ramen which didn't seem too appealing, but the noodles are served really cold somewhat crisp so when dipped into the broth is rather refreshing. Perfectly cooked noodles as well. I didn't find the soup spicy though, and it did get somewhat acidic towards the end, but that's just my opinion.
To accompany our mains we opted for the two most popular drinks - Melon Soda w/ Ice Cream which apparently tastes like a liquid version of the Melona Ice Cream & Iced Green Tea Cappuccino which in fact is not sweet at all. Don't expect the drinks at Starbucks as this is a cold milky drink with lots of green tea.
I raved about the Tempura Salmon Roll last time so it was a must order again. So much mayo, so much rice, so much tempura but despite the food coma, good food is never ever wasted. I can totally see myself double or even triple frying this at home to make it superrrr crunchy.
It was A's first time trying Beef Tataki and honestly, this is the only time I eat my beef this rare. With the 'tangy' sauce, it's acidic-ness is refreshing and with the super cold beef, it'll definitely be a hit in summer.
I'm sure I don't need to mention this, but my love for Ichiban Boshi has already been explained 1.5 years ago on my first post, and there's no need to convince me to return again. I found the Summer Special & Cold Ramen to be of a large serving and definitely one to try before summer is over. They also do spinach noodles and now thinking about it, which I went out of my way to try something different.
