In a city saturated with Ramen restaurants, how does one stand out? Well it seems that Wrong Ramen's strategy was to do the opposite of what all other Ramen places were doing, which was playing up on the authenticity of it's food, giving their consumers the idea that this is what the hot noodle soup would taste like if we were actually in Japan. Wrong Ramen cheekily asks via a poster on the wall, “Is it better to do Wrong Ramen right or Right Ramen wrong,” and after trying their FU Ramen, I could totally say eff you to authenticity, at least while confined within the restaurant's walls.
Don't get me wrong, I love “real” ramen as much as the next person (not that I'm a ramen expert but you know what I mean!), but what I like about this place is that it doesn't try to be what it's not, and this particular FU Ramen, with it's fried egg, spam, bacon and cheese, seems like a dish created at 3 a.m. After a drunken night with friends. And because of that, I absolutely love it. It has all the elements of comfort food- it's warm, and it has processed meat. What more could you ask for? Despite it waving it's flag of “wrongness,” the place is definitely doing something right. Now that the rainy season has started, I'll definitely be back!
