|Akamaru Chashu $21|
Just look at that gorgeous bowl of ramen. Each ingredient is beautifully placed. The Akamaru Chashu starts with a flavoursome tonkatsu broth as the base. The rest of the ingredients consist of simmered pork belly, black mushrooms, thin noodles, shallots and special miso paste. For me, good ramen is all about the balance. The noodles, the toppings and the soup should combine to become a cohesive dish. No single ingredient should over power the other. At Ippudo, they have mastered this balance.
|Ippudo Pork Bun $4|
Having seen the pork bun on Instagram and other blogs, I decided to try it. It was good but not like salivating amazeballs. Next time I’ll probably just stick to ramen exclusively.
