Even though the menu change took place in 2021, many guests don’t realize that ramen bowls exist at Comic Strip Café. I know the ramen in the Toon Lagoon area makes for a weird combination. In a previous post, I already reviewed the pork belly version of ramen bowls. Comic Strip Café offers a beef version and a tofu version as well. The tofu version meets the requirements of vegan meals.
The “Tofu Ramen” costs $12.99. The menu describes this dish as vegan tofu ramen with miso broth, edamame dumpling, bean sprouts, scallions, and cilantro. Customers can pay an extra $3 for an egg roll to make it a combo. I would suggest skipping the below average quality egg roll.
The best way to describe people’s experience with this bowl of ramen is: it’s complicated!” In addition to my experience, I have reports from people who loved it to people who hated it. I I’ll try to simplify the pros and cons of this tofu ramen, if possible. As a result, I’ll often use the term “most guests” to show the majority opinion when possible. Okay, now I tried to explain the settings, how is this bowl of tofu ramen?
First of all, even if you don’t like this entry, you have to admit that theme park ramen is a huge step up. Standard theme park kitchens get old when it’s all about pizza and burgers all the time. Universal Orlando should get credit for non-traditional theme park food.
Second, most guests thought the seasoning of the tofu was okay. If you have texture issues with the tofu, think about it before ordering it.
Next, most guests found the flavor of the broth good for the theme park ramen. However, this miso-style broth pales in comparison to ramen places near the Universal Orlando property. Please note that the broth used for the Vegan Bowl tastes different than the Pork or Beef Bowl. I suggest the vegan broth tastes slightly better.
Regarding the noodles, most diners found these noodles less pleasant compared to the beef/pork bowl noodles. The flavor of the noodles lacks something. I suspect these noodles require better preparation, so your experience may vary greatly.
Most of the guests really enjoyed the taste of the edamame. In my research, this part of the bowl provides the most satisfaction to diners.
On the other hand, most of the guests did not like the dumpling. Still, the flavor of the dumpling complements the rest of the ramen. Still, the texture seems too hard to appreciate. If it spent more time in the broth, it might soften for a better cooking experience.
This bowl of tofu might be a great choice for you. Of course, that could be disappointing. I have given you as much information as possible so that you can make a good choice. Again, whatever you think of this menu item, you’d have to agree that it’s a good stop as far as park food goes. The $13 price tag also offers great value for theme park food.
As always, eat your way!
