Since I am not able to eat pork broth very well, I went with the Bonito Dashi Ramen this day. It is a fish and vegetable broth and is topped with pork slices, sprouts, corn, egg, and garlic.

This was a fine choice. Honestly, it isn't my number one choice of ramen in the city, but I wouldn't go out of my way to avoid it, either.

I do like that you can select the noodle type (wavy or straight) and the firmness of the noodle. I usually go for the very firm noodle.

Price-wise, Hide-Chan is on the lower end of the spectrum, so if you are craving a quick bowl and want to stay under $20, this is a great option for you. However, the ramen is pretty basic until you start adding toppings, so it's quite easy to hit that $20 mark.

Unfortunately, for me, it was almost impossible to avoid pork, especially since I didn't really want the vegetable ramen. So, if you also avoid pork you may want to try one of the other ramen places in the city.
