Nothing beats a big bowl of Ramen noodles. Especially a big bowl, full of rich broth, a runny boiled egg and tender strips of meat. Recommended by a friend, Shoryu Ramen was a place high on the list of places to eat and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Within a couple of minutes of being seated, drums were sounding and my eyes were gleaming at the menu. It was recommended that we try the Shoryu buns, and instantly my eyes darted to char siu and king prawn! Unlike the usual bao I’m accustomed to, these were scrumptious to eat! Tender pieces of meat or prawn wrapped in lettuce and sandwiched in between soft white fluffy bread.
So what about the ramen?
Shoryu Ramen’s website states they specialise ‘in Hakata tonkotsu ramen from the Hakata district of Fukuoka city on the southern island of Kyushu, Japan. Hakata tonkotsu ramen is a style of ramen made with a thick, rich, white pork soup and thin, straight ramen noodles.’
If only pictures could emit it’s aroma…because this bowl of ramen was delicious to eat in my opinion! The broth I found tasted rich and full of flavour. The meat was tender and I wanted to eat, slurp and drink up every inch of this bowl. We only tried one style of ramen, but I think I’d definitely return and try more dishes!
