Trevor and I were driving to Makaha Valley from Waipahu when we decided on a quick and inexpensive lunch. Ton Ton Ramen stood out as we were driving through the outlet mall.
Trevor had a mochiko chicken combo. I had Maba tofu ramen.
I assumed it would be vegetarian but there were definitely bits of ground meat in the soup. Having 3/4ths Asian in my ethnic background, you would think I was more well-versed in Oriental cuisine. I'm not. I'm very much a watered-down Asian, American-born, apple pie-eating California girl. Thus, I had no idea what Maba was (I googled it, and its definitely a tofu food cooked with minced sausage or beef).
I had to rinse off each tofu chunk in the soup to avoid meat, as I am a vegetarian who still tries to eat as vegan as possible.
Incidentally, the bowl was still flavorful and filling. I bit off Trevor' rice with curry sauce and it was delightful.
He was satisfied with his meal as well, and drank my minced meat leftover soup.
