We were still hungry after Guu and stopped by Kintaro, which was really busy. So we walked to Benkei nearby, which turned out to be cheaper.

It was kind of late and while we ordered their more special ramens, we had to settle for something a little more basic since they were out. I believe we got the Miso and the Shoyu. The decor and service gave off a much friendlier vibe than at Kintaro. Since the restaurant wasn't busy, it was also more relaxed.
I don't remember having the choice between fatty or lean meat, but I did add an egg which was well cooked and creamy. The ramen was decent but portion might be smaller than at Kintaro. Quality wise, I don't remember Kintaro enough to make a valid comparison. Truth be told, I don't like ramen enough to have it often. In any case, I am looking forward to trying something beyond the basic shoyu, miso, and shio soup bases next time.
