Prior to this review, I've stayed away from reviewing the set meals on offer in Tokyo Disney. My initial plan was to review all of the permanent offerings before I started working on the seasonal ones, but then I realized that even the permanent offerings are not permanent in the world of Disney. Just look at the recent menu changes in Ristorante Di Canaletto and Center Street Coffeehouse.
Walt Disney once said, "Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there's imagination left in the world." That's the beauty of Disney and Honorable Rat has changed his mindset. Now, I'm just gonna review anything and everything that travels to the depths of my digestive system in Tokyo Disney.
The Voyager Set sells for 1,580 yen and it comes with a bowl of ramen, a coddled egg, a drink of your choice and a pineapple cake. What type of ramen? Officially, it's called Noodles with Pork & Tofu in Thickened Sauce with Coddled Egg. Seriously, Tokyo Disney needs to hire someone to change the names of some of these dishes. No creativity whatsoever. If you have to ask me about the main ingredients in this bowl of ramen, kill yourself, please.
Apologies for being blunt, but I've just been denied entry to both parks because they've reached their maximum capacity and I'm not in a good mood. I'm currently writing this blog post on the train, on my way home, crying like a baby. If you're coming to Tokyo Disney during this period, do get your tickets in advance.
By the way, they forgot to add spring onion to the name of this ramen. If they wanted to spell everything out for us, it should be Noodles with Tofu & Pork & Spring Onions in Thickened Spicy Sauce with Coddled egg. There you go Tokyo Disney. Don't need to thank me for the correction. We're good.
Back to the review. This long named ramen had both minced pork and chunks of pork belly in it. The pork belly was juicy and sweet. It was so so tender. My mouth is watering right now just thinking about it. It added some sweetness to the broth which had the right amount of spice to it. I broke the coddled egg and mixed it in the soup which added a salty flavor. The end product was a broth that was spicy, sweet, salty and rich. So so flavorful. This was the best ramen that I've ever had in China Voyager. They should permanently add this to the menu. Scrumptiously delicious!
The Pineapple Cake had 3 pieces of sliced pineapple on it, whipped cream and a chocolate anchor. It had the right spring to it. Not too soft. There were bits of pineapple in the cake and strawberry sauce drizzled on the plate which added some sourness to the dessert. Sweet and a little sour. It was okay. Nothing to shout about. I've said this many times and I'm gonna say it again. Tokyo Disney seriously gotta step up their game when it comes to desserts!
If I had it my way, I would remove the drink and the pineapple cake from this set, rename the ramen and sell it as a standalone. Price it like the other ramen bowls in China Voyager and we'll have ourselves a winner. I will definitely be getting this set again. I'll give the drink and the dessert to my kids. That will make me look like a generous man. While they are busy with that, I'll finish the ramen as quickly as possible. I won't share it with them. It's mine! Let's see. What name should I give this ramen? I got it! I'm gonna name it, "Honorable Rat's favorite ramen that will rock your socks off and send you to heaven on a magical floating cloud."
