Until quite recently, trying to find a place serving ramen (Japanese noodle soup) in Girona was difficult. Too difficult. But luckily, things are now starting to change and one of the places you can enjoy ramen in the city is Mien. The people in charge of the restaurant are the same as at Japanese restaurant Umai (a Mexican chef and his Chinese wife), but at Mien they've decided to specialise in noodles and soups. You'll also find starters such as the fantastic prawn and chicken gyoza, and really delicious desserts (don't leave without trying the green-tea cake!), but the real star is the ramen. The broth is home-made and 100-percent Chinese, the noodles are handmade by the entertaining granny sitting at the entrance, and the toppings are pretty varied: pork, duck, beef and tempura prawn. To sum up, this is ramen that could ressurect the dead. If you don't like soup, don't worry, they also have a great dish of spicy noodles served with either mushrooms, fish or meat.
