For more than a decade, Goma Tei has garnered acclaim with its heralded tan tan ramen, udon, curry, rice and other dishes. Its carefully honed recipes are crafted to provide a balance of nutrition and exquisite flavors.
Guests can expect delectable dishes such as shredded pork and Sichuan pickle spicy and sour soup with ramen, also known as Sunho ($12.25).
“Many people ask if we use MSG in our soup. The answer is no; after boiling for over 24 hours, our soup is naturally rich in flavor with a hint of sweetness. We do not need to add anything to make it taste good. We make our own chile oil, too, and add Japanese vinegar. My personal favorite is Sunho Ramen with shredded pork and Sichuan pickle topping,” shares Goma Tei operations manager Jenny Lu.
Other popular items are the Ginger Chicken Cold Noodle ($13.70), Hamburger Side Order ($7.99) and Curry Loco Moco ($12.99).
Meanwhile, Goma Tei also features Fish Dumplings ($9.95-$12.50), which are boiled in water to a smooth finish and served with cilantro garnishes. Fish Dumplings are available with tan tan, shoyu or sunho, with options to add on noodles. These tasty options are also offered as a side order without soup.
The eatery has sites conveniently dispersed throughout Oahu, including in Ala Moana Center, Kahala Mall, Pearlridge Center and Ward Centre. Patrons can experience genuine Japanese dishes from spicy to mild and in between.
