Shoyu Tonkotsu Ramen ....

After a workout with weights and a short 3KM run on a rainy Monday night , I thought of Shoyu Ramen since it's a cold night. Thanks to SK's post again on his Japan travelogue last week where he mentioned the Shoyu (Soy) Ramen. I usually had the Miso Ramen , thus I was curious to find out about this ramen. It seems the Shoyu Ramen came in different varieties, including hot and spicy, but I ended up ordered the Shoyu Tonkotsu (pork bone) Ramen. The broth was darker in colour compared to other ramen.

After I have stirred the soup to check out the ingredients 

It came with two slices of chashu which I can top-up to five pieces but I didn't , a piece of seaweed and a boiled egg. The broth was nice and I really don't know how to describe the broth since I am not a food critic but it did leave a nice after-taste, just like when you had a bottle of chicken essence. I was lucky to have a nice ramen restaurant near by place. :) The Ramen shop was Men-ichi Ramen at Northpoint Shopping Centre.

  3. Ok. I can't tell one from the other. The flat black thing is seaweed, I know but what's the other one, the one that's slightly purplish? The egg sure is perfect. No pork ham or bacon with a thin layer of fat? I would love that.

  11. Northpoint Shopping Centre? Actually you Are SG-ian or JB-ian? I got an ex-colleague working in Avago, she told me about this ramen shop, she said no taste one compared to Penang food. Although I think partly is due to her being Penang people, hard to please when they work elsewhere, everything must taste like Penang.
