Tenchi: the new noodle bar in town!

Some weeks ago, Harbud and I were spotting a new restaurant announced on the local, free magazine. We said to each other "homemade noodle restaurant? Hm,... should be good! Shall we try?"

But at that time, when we walked passed it, it was still closed.

Two weeks ago, we gave it another try. And it was open!

With a slight of hesitation, Harbud, Stefy, Anthon, Lea, and I enter the restaurant. We were unsure, as the restaurant was rather empty. There was only one table occupied.

Feeling perplexed, we just ordered the 'standard' menu. I decided to order something soupy; and Stefy ordered something fried - so we could swap. Harbud, Anthon, and Lea ordered the set-menu: noodle soup (seafood or cha siu), beer (they ordered soft drink instead), and yaktori.

Stefy, too, ordered soft drink and I chose something warm to accompany my warm, soupy noodle.

The 3 portions Yakitori were first to arrive (sorry, no picture. we were so hungry that we simply dived into it :P). They are very tasty! On the menu, it also said that the yakitori is homemade (some yakitori in Holland come from freezer packaging).

And the noodle soups and fried noodles came!

The first to arrive, my Volcano Noodle soup.

Why is it called Volcano? I guess because it was super spicy! YES, it is very spicy - not Dutch people kind of spicy; this is seriously spicy. Super tasty!

This is Harbud eating his Seafood Noodle Soup

And this is Stefy's fried noodle.

In general, the taste is good - but not special. They should try to improve the taste of the broth. The broth is tasteless, unless you order my Volcano Noodle Soup, so you would taste the spicy broth.

The noodle is delicious. It definitely is homemade!

The service is A+ ! The waiter and waitress were very kind. They talked to us, asking what's missing, what we wanted, whether we needed soy sauce, chilli, etc.

The atmosphere is good, but could be better. If they want to emphasize the fact that it is ramen house (which what the waiter told us), they should put some japanese/asian ornaments, and change the music to something Asian! (thus not Rihanna, Ne-Yo, Linkin Park,..)

The picture below is potato swirl, we got it for free. They wanted us to taste and give comment about it. We liked it!

Tenchi will definitely be a very recommended place to have dinner or lunch in the Hague. You'll never know what free stuffs you would get, because the second time we went there, we got free dessert! yay!
