Rah’mn: Build-your-own ramen concept doesn’t meet expectations

By Lee Guekguezian I had been eagerly awaiting the opening of Rah’mn for what seemed like an eternity (but was actually around a month.)

Expanding the ramen repetoire: Rice Vermicelli Clear Soup

The name itself, Clear Soup, foreshadowed a rather bland ramen experience. The Mama brand ramen came with three packets—an oil packet that basically tastes like garlic butter, a chili packet and a powder seasoning packet, which (to our surprise) contained easily identifiable scallions, which is welcome in instant ramen.
