Ohyama Ramen - Whistler

So we're spending a weekend in Whistler thanks to a wedding present gift certificate that we received from my employer! The main event will be spending some time on Sunday riding up and down the mountains including the Peak 2 Peak Gondola. Eating out in Whistler is always a bit of a crapshoot as far as I am concerned. It's a tourist town so of course, things are generally overpriced and maybe the talent is not there. One can't say that's always true (that's why I said crapshoot) as you can get great food but it will generally cost you a small fortune. If you've ever read any blog posts here, you know I'm kind of medium to cheap ass when it comes to eating out.
Ohyama Ramen is where we found some lunch on Saturday. It's a bit off the main Village Stroll on the Whistler Conference Centre Parking lot. We arrived a little before noon and were seated outside right away.
As we often do when having ramen, we started with Chicken Karaage. This was good. It was crispy and fairly tender. It was not the most amazing that we have ever had but decent. A little Kewpie Mayo on the side was nice.
It's a little hard to get your veggies when you're away for the weekend, so we chose the Fried Brussels Sprouts which were really tasty! Just salty enough and just cooked (and not cooked to death). 
Mharie had the Basic Ramen with shoyu broth. This was a decent bowl at a decent price. It was not mind-blowing but the broth was flavourful, the noodles satisfying and the chashu was fatty and tasty. You could do a lot worse than a bowl of ramen while in Whistler.
I had the Vegetarian Japanese Curry. Japanese curry is milder than other curries such as South Asian or Thai but I found this to be really too mild. I would have enjoyed a bit of a kick. Still, it was pleasant enough and left me feeling satisfied and not uncomfortable (vegetarian eats will do that for you).
There is quite a bit of outside seating at OR but it is quite nice inside as well. It seems to be decorated in the streetscape of some Japanese Village and looked very comfortable. Service was friendly and decent and we enjoyed our outside table with the obstructed view of the mountains. Decent food at a reasonable price is quite a find in Whistler!
