Dot Com Lunch at G-Men Ramen Noodle Shop

G-Men Ramen Shop has only been open for a short time but it has already garnered a huge following and reputation as being the best ramen shop in the city. No matter what time you visit, the place ALWAYS has a line up. You can expect to wait 15 to 30 minutes to get a table. The restaurant is worth lining up for. G-Men has by far the best and most authentic ramen noodles I’ve ever tasted.

G-Men has a policy of not seating anyone unless their entire party is present. That would make hosting a Dot Com Pho there extremely difficult thanks to never on time bums like Ed Lau and Greg Morgan. Then again, I doubt G-Men would welcome us anyway. The restaurant is a, “Get in, seat down, eat, then get the hell out!” kinda place. With the constant line up at the door, you really can’t blame them.

G-Men Ramen Shop

If you think you can avoid the line up by ordering take out, forget about it. G-Men doesn’t do or allow take out. The place is strictly dine in only. The only reason I can come up with for the no take out policy is because the owners doesn’t want someone trying to reverse engineer their recipes.

G-Men is located at the Continental Plaza in Richmond, #1101-3778 Sexsmith Road. The restaurant is open Thursday to Monday and closed Tuesday to Wednesday (don’t ask me why because I don’t know). Lunch is served 11am to 3:30pm. Dinner goes from 5:30pm to 10pm. If you have a hankering for the best ramen outside of Japan, G-Men is the place.

Authentic light “TORIGARA” chicken soup thin noodle seasoned with SHIO (salt) flavor, topped with BBQ pork, half ajitama, yuzu, seaweed, black wood ear mushroom and green onion. The two ToriGara ramen dishes are only served during lunch time. During dinner, they change the soup base from chicken to pork.

2009 Summer Hiyashi Ramen

G-Men Ramen Shop

This dish is only available during the summer of 2009. It’s G-Men’s first G-version cold noodle seasoned with SHOYU flavor, topped with ham, half ajitama, fried onion, seaweed, black wood ear mushroom & green onion. You have a choice of Shoyu or sesame dressing.

The ramen dishes at G-Men range in price from $8 to $10, which is extremely reasonable. G-Men will be a regular hangout for when I’m in Richmond. Now if I can only find a way to avoid that line up…

  1. Oh, noodle soup, Japanese or Chinese, I don’t care, I love them all 😉 I even incorporated them into my recent weight loss diet, and I am not even working in that niche 😉 Seriously now, this sort of noodle soups are great for a good, tasty low calorie lunch, exactly what you need when sitting the whole time before the comp 😉 Again, what a pity that I am on the other site of the big pond, I would gladly join you, John. “Dobre chut” as they say in my neck of the wood 😉 SY

      I’m not sure, but noogle soup come from China. The Japanese just change the taste of ra-men (noodle soup) Hey John, have you ever eaten Korean Kimchi Ra-men? It’s really delicious as long as you like spicy food.

  2. I can see why it has the reputation as the best in the area.

  3. Sexsmith? Ey John, is that based on someone’s name or is that a super old-school occupation (like blacksmith) ^-^?

    I’ll come back for the answer, buying ramen now.

  4. This reminds me of the movie Ramen Girl with Brittany Murphy that my wife forced to me watch.

    1. How is it? Is it like typical chick-flick?

      1. Make Money says:

        not really a chick flick, its a bit out there, but I for one thought it was pretty good.

  5. LetUpdate says:

    *prepeare to launch at my favorite Chinese food restaurant*

    1. dreams` box says:

      hahahahaha …. close this article now not to eat this blog 😀

  6. Benjamin Cip says:

    I love Ra-men, I often ate them in Japan. I prefer TanTanMen. Have you ever tried it? I don’t know the English name for it, but I’m pretty sure they can serve you TanTanMen in this restaurant. Well, you made me damn hungry….

  7. Those ramen noodles look alot tastier than the kind that I get for 25 cents at the grocery store! Nice pics.

    1. EarningStep says:

      25 cent ,…. you must be kidding .. it cost at least $ 3 in my country

      1. What a rip. I only pay 15 cents for mine! can’t beat that price. It is the staple food of all starving college students in the US

        1. Blogging says:

          I am in the middle, instant noodle soup here $0.20, but not as good and nutritious as the real stuff, SY

  8. 1800 SaiGon says:

    Look it that a lot of oil – Chinese food always have oil and if you diet – you can’t, can’t eat that 😀 That’s only match of Asian. But I don’t know Chinese food is smell good like as Vietnamese ?

  9. Clarky says:

    LOL, Chinese food is the best, but you know, I am a Chinese, but we don’t eat so many things like you eat in a restaurant, because the standard of Chinese living is not high, and I think that most people like to eat healthy and easily.

    1. dreams` box says:

      You are right as already the most people like to eat healthy to keep their fitness.

      1. Benjamin Cip says:

        I’m not sure but this is a Japanese restaurant a not chinese one. I saw a lot of japanese eating ramen when I visited Japan. Sapporo ramen are very famous there.

  10. Lesley says:

    Aaaaahhh I’m going there tonight!!!!!

  11. Thanks for yet another post leaving us craving food. Nice pics.

  12. Another mouth watering article from JOhn chow.

    1. EarningStep says:

      look like food is one of the hobby that john have

  13. This article make me hungry john. Anybody need WP premium theme like John Chow Theme?!

    1. Make Money says:

      Yep, I want one. Did you design this one? or just do similar ones?

  14. That looks absolutely delectable. Which reminds me, I am due for a quick lunch break! Nothing as exciting as this, I’m afraid!

  15. EarningStep says:

    one word : delicious .. this is what i can say..

  16. Seems to me because of their policy we wont able to see video this time.

    I saw photos of this one day before and was waiting for the video as well … but 🙁

  17. MLDina says:

    You mean you don’t get VIP treatment as a Dot Com star? Clearly you need better management! Have your people call my people…

    1. And what they were going to do … Dina …

  18. When I first read this i thought of the 15 cent raman noodles you can buy at walmart. Those pictures don’t resemble that raman at all! That looks crazy tasty

    1. John is the fond of luxury and great tastes … I do not think that he is going for $0.15 cents noodles …

  19. fas says:

    Sweet, but John you said you were cutting down eating outside. Huh!

  20. Nathan says:

    I’ve been eating ramen these days but not as authenticated as this! The picture makes it look so tasty! Yummy! haha

  21. Thank you for posting photos! I’d heard of ramen noodles before, but never seen them. The last dish looks delicious! And as for the not seating until everyone is present – I really wish more places did that.

  22. S Ahsan says:

    I have been eating Ramen for like a month!!! geez! its insane! but this one looks quite good 🙂 do you get those fish ball noodles here 😉

  23. It is a Japanese shop or Chinese? I think Chinese. Japanese has something to do with top to bottom text writing, isn’t it? Any ways, like the commentators above, I am not a big fan of noddles, but i surely like Chinese food without noddles. 🙂

  24. Katie says:

    mmmm the food looks delicious. Wish I could have some right now. I love the look of that soup and food.

  25. Sunny Rock says:

    G-men is not bad but I think Menya is better. Both places are always packed though : /

  26. Charlie says:

    Hi, Can i take a one small picture from your blog?
    Thanks

      As long as you give credit, you may do so.

  27. oes tsetnoc says:

    the stuff looking very yummy to me. Specially the last one wanna taste it

  28. Lee Ka Hoong says:

    The Special ToriGara Shoyu Ramen looks promising, and $8-$10 is definitely reasonable, worth it!

  29. Tell them you are John Chow 🙂

    -Mike

  30. Yeah the noodles look pretty good but I want some of that Aburi-style sushi over at Miku.
