This actually isn't as good as it looks on the menu and I should have known. But now I can convince myself that I've tried and that I didn't avoid it based on prejudice on my part. The noodles turned out much softer than those with the soup basethe bottom of the bowl is actually filled with diluted teriyaki sauce which didn't do much to help. The sogginess as I am guessing, is probably due to the noodles being soaked in the sauce for an overly long duration destroying the texture and bite. The chicken had soggy skin instead of crispy ones and is devoided of fragrance. Looks like it's only soup ramen (which sees falling standards like many other places over time) for me at Ajisen now.
