This was a bit of a surprise, but the Cosmopolitan Hotel/Casino has pork ramen on their room service menu. The hotel is supposed to get a David Chang’s Momofuku branch soon, so maybe this is part of that planning. It would be awesome to get Momofuku as room service.
The ramen was actually surprisingly good. There wasn’t enough broth, as you can see from the picture (I haven’t had any yet), although maybe they underfill the bowl, as they put cling wrap on it and have to transport it up to the room. However, the broth was good. The egg was deliciously soft-boiled. There were good onions. The chashu was some of the most bacon like pork in ramen I’ve ever had. It was a bit like cross grain thick cut bacon; however it was very smoky and tasty. The noodles were the more thin and wheaty hakata style that is not my favorite (I like thin noodles, that are more crunchy and yellow, but that is just a taste thing).
Overall, the fact that you can get it delivered (still hot) and enjoy it from a view means I definitely have to give this ramen a strong recommendation.
