A fluffy, pillow soft steamed bun encases a succulent piece of braised chashu - so tender that it simply melts in your mouth – with a creamy mayo based sauce. This is similar to the Chinese kong ba pau (pork slices with steamed bun), except that the meat is lighter in taste (which I prefer). Just try not to overload yourself with pork buns, after all the ramen is still the star of this place.

Classic ramen – Shiromaru motoaji ($15): Classic Hakata-style ramen. The broth was hearty and tasty, yet light on the palate (not laden with oil). Served was thin and straight noodles (no kee taste noted) and topped with tender and flavourful slices of pork belly, cabbage, black fungus, spring onions and pickled ginger. This would be suitable for those who prefer their ramen simple and safe.

Modern ramen – Akamaru Shinaji ($16): My all time favourite! Ippudo’s tonkotsu broth enhanced with blended miso and garlic oil. This is also served with served with thin and straight noodles (Hakata-style noodles) and topped with buttery slices of pork belly, black fungus and and spring onions. The rich and flavourful broth was more aromatic than the classic (garlic oil, of course) and this is also the reason why I love it so much. Even though the broth looks oily, it doesn’t leave a cloying feeling. So fret not and slurp away! The flavoured egg did not disappoint as well. It was still cold when served and the yolk (most important part for me) was deliciously molten, just the way I like it. This ramen would be suitable for garlic lovers and those who prefer a full flavoured broth.

Featured ramen – Bonito tonkotsu ($16): Another non-spicy take on the signature tonkotsu broth, this is made with bonito fish stock and served with Hakata-style noodles. The broth was heavy on the taste of the bonito fish stock and extremely flavoursome to say the least. Initial mouthfuls drew praises all over the table but the taste of the bonito fish stock got a little overwhelming after awhile. Tip: Adding raw garlic cuts through the rich tasting broth and the piquant taste of garlic adds an extra kick to the ramen. This would be suitable for those who are fans of bonito and/or like strong, bold flavours.

Overall, this is place recommended for its ramen, especially the Akamaru Shinaji.
