Vegan Ramen - Edit

Vegan ramen has been on the menu since day one at Nishiki. The Ramen Del Sol offered a light and frothy yam and almond broth with tender housemade noodles and a light array of veggies. At that time I would have easily called it my favorite ramen in Southern California. But the $15 price tag (which after tax and tip is nearly a $20 meal) kept me from making frequent visits.

Now that ethereal bowl is gone, replaced with the less lyrically named Vegetarian Delight ($9.80) with vegan noodles (+$1)--not commercial spinach noodles, but real toothsome wheat noodles. Topped with two slabs of organic tofu, corn, tomato, bamboo shoots, fried garlic, and spring onion in a very salty cream broth, this dish trades in subtlety for a kitchen sink of toppings, a salt assault, and a lower price tag. It's a clear market reaction, pushing for better sales, that I'm sure is working... although I miss that moment (in this bowl, in this life) when art was more important then income.

Pros: Clearly marked vegan menu
