They serve ramen in different soup bases namely, shoyu, spicy, and tonkotsu. I am a huge fan of tonkotsu soup bases so that was what both of us chose.
The tonkotsu soup base was thick with the strong scent of pork bones. I was initially very excited about the thick fragrant soup base and was happily digging into my bowl of ramen. But the thick chalky soup base became cloyingly sweet towards the end and I had trouble finishing my bowl. The ramen was also reminiscent of Chinese la mian, and not the usual springy japanese ramen.
The braised pork belly was soft, tender and very well-braised. The barbecued meat was lean and tender. If you are not a fan of marbly fatty meat, I would strongly advise the barbecued meat instead.
The egg was really good though, with a nice runny egg yolk within.
The bowl of ramen was decent, but definitely not fantastic. I doubt I would crave for a bowl of Daruma ramen but you might wish to pop by for a bowl if you are in the area.
