LAS VEGAS TRIP (DAY 3) – MONTA RAMEN

Our last day in Las Vegas, before depart we wanted to go check out the Chinatown. It has been years since I last visited LV Chinatown. LV is a fast pace changing city, so are the surrounding places. Chinatown has expanded a lot, many newly built Asian plazas. I am glad we stop by here, eye opening.

We decided to go to Monta Ramen for lunch. Monta opened at  11:30am, and there is a line already!! We saw people lining up outside, after waiting for a little bit, my friend noticed there is a sign up sheet inside!!! Damn it!! They should leave the sign up outside! Oh, there is no sign saying Manto in front, but you can’t miss it with the long line outside.

Anyways, after about almost 1 hour wait, we finally got seated at the bar … which was fine, we get to look at the chefs.

Food! We ordered a Large Pork Belly Rice Bowl to share – the fatty pieces of pork were cooked perfectly, so tender, buttery, just goes perfect with rice! I really miss this!

Hubby ordered the basic Tonkotsu Ramen with egg added – broth is very bold and tense, and what I love the most is not overly salty!

I ordered the Kuro Ramen with egg added on the daily special board – black garlic oil ramen, I really love it. Egg was perfectly soft boiled, runny center. I do wish that it was thick noodles, this is just personal preference 🙂
