I was in the mood for some Ramen so I was really excited when I did a search on Google and found the restaurant Edo Ramen. They sell an assortment of Japanese cuisine from sushi to Ramen to Udon.
My boyfriend is a big authentic Ramen noodle eater so he was happy to take me here for date night and I figured I would share with you guys my experience of Edo Ramen in Royal Oak, MI.
Eating Edo Ramen in Royal Oak Michigan
We visited this restaurant Sunday afternoon and it wasn’t too many people there which I absolutely loved. We went to another Ramen restaurant and usually it takes at least 40 minutes to get a table, but there wasn’t any wait when we visited. I honestly feel like this restaurant is kind of a hidden gem where you probably won’t notice it’s there unless you actually look up and realize it.
The waitress was really kind and helpful.
The Edo Ramen menu has so many things I want to try on it that it made it kind of hard for me to choose.
We ordered our drinks. I ordered a Minute Maid lemonade and my boyfriend ordered the Calamansi juice. The Calamansi juice is delicious. It kind of tastes like lemonade and some other fruit mixed with it. It’s pretty good. They do have an assortment of other drinks that you can choose from.
For our appetizer we ordered the chicken karaage which is Japanese-style fried chicken with a delicious sauce drizzled on it. It also came with this green stuff that kind of reminded me of a light pepper. I absolutely love chicken karaage. The sauce that is drizzled on the chicken is what really makes this appetizer spectacular. It is kind of tangy, but also salty.
For our actual meal, we both ordered a Ramen Edo specialty. We went ahead and decided to try the Nashville Ramen. It had fried chicken and sweet sausage in it with Ramen noodles. There was a fish cake in it along with seaweed, corn, and spinach. It came with Tonkotsu broth which was pretty decent. I actually added some of the spicy table sauce into my Ramen. I am not sure what it is called, but every table has some along with a bottle of soy sauce. I feel like this Ramen would actually taste a bit better with a bit of hot sauce drizzled into it (as a personal preference of course).
So honestly, my boyfriend wasn’t completely full after eating the Ramen so it would be best to ask for extra noodles if you would like more Ramen noodles.
Would I recommend Edo Ramen?
I definitely would if you’re looking for some Ramen to eat. It isn’t too crowded or at least it wasn’t when I went and the food is pretty good.
I’ll be visiting there again in the future soon to try something new and I will update you guys with what I tried so that you can try it out yourselves if you’re interested it.
