Kintaro is one of those places where you go for the food, not the ambiance, so let's get that out of the way first. With that in mind, you should expect to sit down, place your order, eat and get your bill all in about half an hour's time. It's in, eat, out, next customer!
If you're on a budget but still want something satisfying that's not junk food, then Kintaro is a great choice. There's 3 types of pork based broth: shoyu (soy sauce), shio (salt), and miso. Every bowl comes with the same noodles and couple slices of pork, aside from the vegetable ramen. You have to tell them if you want your soup light, medium, or rich (meaning they actually had grease to it if you want it medium or rich - some people swear by it). You also have to tell them if you want lean pork or fatty pork.
I've been twice now, and the first time I got the regular shio ramen, light soup, lean pork. It comes with sauteed bean sprouts, a hard boiled egg, bamboo shoots, and green onions (which I opted out of). The broth was really tasty and for lack of a better word, porky. If you like your food on the delicate side, with not a lot of salt, then you might not like this, as the broth is bold with lots of flavour and salt. The lean pork (it's slices of pork roast) was on the dry side, but then again, I chose lean pork.
On my second visit, I chose the chashu ramen, with shio broth. You get more pork that way. I got light broth and decided to try the fatty pork. Good lord, that was heaven in a bowl. It wasn't a huge chunk of fat like I worried it might be - it was more like very marbled meat, which made for melt-in-your-mouth tenderness. The noodles were good - very springy with a nice chew to it. On a cold autumn day, there is nothing more satisfying. It's the best $10 you'll spend. I can't go back to instant ramen anymore!
