Whenever I walk past the Orchid Hotel, I will see people queueing for the Keisuke Tonkotsu King. To beat the crowd, you have to go about half an hour before noon, for lunch.
In short – is it worth to queue? Yes.
Interior – There is nothing to talk about for this restaurant. Its small, cramp and the interior simply tells you: Eat and Go. It is very Japanese style.
Food – They offer free side dishes: eggs (in two colors, one with lower cholesterol) and bean sprouts. Now the ramen, the soup is very flavorful – so flavorful and thick that by the end of my meal, I feel a bit jilat. But not complaining here because the generous and not-very-fatty charsiew and nice ramen noodles compliment the thick soup. How I wish the soup can be less thick so that it will be perfect.
Service – There seemed to be quite a lot of staff working in this teeny-weeny restaurant (or not even restaurant). Due to its small area, staff is very alert and prompt in service. One thing about this restaurant that impressed me was that they offered free barley drinks to those waiting in line. It was a nice gesture!
