Ramen Cubism

Following the success of its Central branch which opened in early 2019, Ramen Cubism is opening up shop in Tsim Sha Tsui this month. To celebrate the opening, celebrity ramen champion Hayashi Takao will be introducing his iconic “Japan Next Generation Ramen Competition Champion Ramen – Miso Ramen” ($138) exclusively in Tsim Sha Tsui from 9 December, which will then be available across both branches thereafter. Described by Chef Hayashi as “not your ordinary miso ramen”, the multiple award-winning dish is made with time-honed skills and care. Combining minced pork with Japanese Miso, the broth is topped with a four-hour slow-cooked pork shoulder, enhanced with shallots, kaiware, and a soft-boiled egg. Complementing the ramen bowls on offer, Ramen Cubism also serves a range of side dishes. Options include hand-made takao dumpling ($48), deep fried Nagoya-style chicken wing ($38), Japanese fried crispy chicken ($38) and more.
