Explore P7: Chijmes Hakata Ramen review 2/2

Click here to go on a tour at Natural History Museum with us 🙂

Let’s continue to dinnertime.

We went to the Chijmes outlet, I think this is the 2nd time we drop by already. Just nice, its dinner time now as I’m writing this and its making me rather hungry. As always, the wifey will always take photos of the menu and more annoying, the food before we dig in. LOL.

There you go, the menu..

To order, simply fill in the form as shown above. There’s the form in Japanese on the reverse side of this form. For me, I always chose the same no matter which ramen joint I go to. It will always be Tonkotsu/Char Siew Ramen. I was hungry so I got the Special Tonkotsu Ramen, its basically the standard tonkotsu ramen with 3 extra slices of charsiew and the Ajitsuke Tamago (flavoured egg), must have the egg!

For wifey, her taste always changes, and she always always try something different. So this time round she decided on the Black Tonkotsu Ramen. And a plate of gyozas to share.

I don’t remember noticing this spicy takana thingy before.

This spicy takana thingy is actually pickled mustard greens. The taste was so familiar but it took me a long time before I realised its actually the same filling used on that dope pan-fried onigiri we had in Nikko, Japan, a few years ago.

Black Tonkotsu. The black was the fried garlic paste they added to the tonkotsu broth.

And of course, my SPECIAL Tonkotsu Ramen. The dope. The essense of life.

And the Ajitsuke tamago. That runny goodness, that wet glossy sheen on that yolk..

And so, after this meal I feel like I could die a satisfied man. Satisfied my stomach, and my soul. Ok ok nothing can replace my wifey ok wifey is the best (just in case she starts saying stuff like ‘so the ramen can replace me lah?’)

Do go and try their ramen. Dope.
