Continuing my journey with the authentic Japanese Ramen, trying out a new flavour yet to be introduced to the menu at Santouka. If you’re familiar with Santouka, you would know the history of their delicious ramen all the way back in the 1980s.
The famous white tonkotsu broth (pork bone soup) in a small bowl or ramen and over the years, Santouka have been establishing their name all over Japan as well as other parts of Asia and even to the United States of America and Canada!
Trying out the cold dish, Roast Beef AE-Soba. same flavourful ramen this time out of the bowl onto a plate of vegetables, poached egg and roast beef. Special home made Wasabi dressing (well don't be afraid of the word wasabi, as it only gives a hint of wasabi) and a perfect combination of the sesame sauce drizzled on the plate of ramen.
Santouka TanTan Men, I love this broth!! white tonkotsu soup with rich sesame and meat miso totally compliments this simple yet heavenly ramen. it kind of reminds me of my recent trip to Malacca where I had the satay Lok Lok. slightly spicy, with great creamy feel to the soup. The minced meat is a wonder!
Lastly I tried the Special Iberia Tokusen Toroniku Ramen. This…. this is one that you want to come back for on your next meal. The famous Santouka white tonkotsu broth and their famous ramen, usual slice of naruto, shoots, spring onions and pickled plum. Then comes the magic: evenly cut slices of pork. Braised pork cheeks replacing the usual Chashu. The look of it might tell you that the meat looks like any or Chashu, braised and slightly dry. But this melts in your mouth almost immediately! I would say you HAVE to try it out!
