Top 5… Japanese Ramen

28 October, 2010

There’s nothing like slurping down a good bowl of Japanese ramen to ward off coughs and colds as the weather changes, and we’ve checked out five of the yummiest places in town to satisfy your miso, karemiso or ume shio cravings!

G/F, 4 Sun Wui Road, Causeway Bay – 2881 5006
Hands-down one of the best bowls of ramen in town, this is posh ramen – ramen, fine dining style. Expect to pay over $100 for a bowl of the good stuff, but what you pay in $$, you can taste in quality.

Ramen Santouka
Shop 608, 6/F, iSquare, 63 Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui – 2721 1298; 1/F, Jusco, Kornhill Plaza, 1 Kornhill Road, Quarry Bay – 2967 4044
Expect long queues at this Hokkaido-style ramen outlet – and once you have your first bite, you’ll see why it’s so busy!

Shop 11-12, 1/F, The Forum, Exchange Square, 8 Connaught Place, Central – 2140 6883
Don’t go at lunchtime as it gets pretty packed, but you’ll find the die-hard fans queuing up for a good reason – their noodles are worth the wait.

Yachiyo Ramen
G/F, 8 On Wo Lane, Central
Tucked away in between Sheung Wan and Gough Street, Yachiyo Ramen serves a mean bowl of noodles in a small and intimate setting. Sit at the bar and watch the noodle masters work their magic, timing the noodles perfectly and shaking out the boiling water straight onto the floor.

Noodle House Ippei-An
Shop 11, 2/F, Miramar Shopping Centre, 132 Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui – 2375 5330
A flavourful broth and chewy noodles with just the right amount of bite makes this ramen specialist worth visiting if you’re in Tsim Sha Tsui.
