I Can’t Decide If It Was Cheap Or Not

My wife and I tried a new ramen restaurant in Denver called Tengu the other day. It was pretty decent. The noodles in my ramen were a bit stuck together, but they were fully cooked (just a bit clumped) and still tasty. It was only the third day they were open, so it’s understandable they might still be getting their act down all the way. The big thing that occurred to me was that I couldn’t decide if it was really cheap or not.

After all, my bowl of ramen was only $10. For Denver, that’s pretty cheap. However, then I thought about how I used to buy an entire case of Ramen for about $20. That made it seem not so cheap.

Seriously, I used to live on a case of ramen, a sack of potatoes, and a case of Mountain Dew for an entire month. Sometimes a sack of black eyed peas as well. Under $50 a month.

So was it cheap or not? I suppose for a restaurant $10 a bowl ramen is still pretty cheap. It’s simply hard to think that way given how cheap dry ramen packets are by the case.
