Shizuku Ramen, Abbotsford by Bureaucrat

As the great man, Chairman Kaga, says, if my memory serves me correctly, seven years ago, Big Fil and Snooze started a food review blog.  This all came about as most of the Eat and Be Merry Crew members worked in the city and that meant we were spoilt for choice when it came to lunch options. The purpose of the blog was to share with our friends and families the great places that we liked.  Back then, we were averaging about a blog post a day(!) and we had yet to figure out how to use all this "social media".

Never in our minds did we think that anyone besides our family and friends would read it, and when we started to get invitations from restaurants to review their food, we thought "does this actually happen?!".  The complimentary meals are definitely a nice perk and it's given us the opportunity to try out restaurants that we wouldn't necessarily would have tried.  Case in point is Shizuku Ramen.  We were invited to dine there three years ago.  Ramen didn't rate on my food radar but after a lovely bowlful of its rich, silky broth, I was impressed - this ain't just an ordinary bowl of soup and noodles.

With the Lawyer not quite getting his ramen fix from our recent lunch at Kenji, I decided to take him to Shizuku Ramen.  They have a pretty good value lunch time deal, where you get a bowl of ramen, entree and appetizer for $15.  The ramen is the simplest version that they have but that's not to say that it is anything less than tasty.  The broth is deep and velvety.  You can tell that it's been simmered for hours and you can just sense the nutritional properties of it (bone broth enthusiasts will be excited about this broth).  The ramen is pleasantly chewy and it comes with a range of pickled veg, a few thinly sliced pork and a lovely creamy egg.

The entree are gyoza. These are also done very nicely.  Thin pastry and a nice meaty filling.

Shizuku Ramen, pickles
While the appetizer are these deliciously crunchy and perfectly salted cucumber pickles.

A great ramen restaurant if you're wanting to see what the fuss is about with ramen or if you're a ramen aficionado.
