Am never a big fan of ramen, i’d rather have a bowl of rice (as i am a 飯桶)!! Yet this restaurant really surprised me!!
Had dinner with my friend Mr. G at a ramen restaurant MIST at causeway bay last night for a bit of catch up as i’ve been soo busy with projects these days. Mr. G is a very wai sik person and he knows a lot of good restaurant,cheap and expensive. He often takes me to great restaurant but i would say this one is really the best!!!
It’s a “Creative ramen restaurant” (創作麵工房), so the chef don’t really need to “follow” any of the recipe of ramen in different parts of japan, but simply following what he thinks makes the best ramen!!
It’s located right next to the minibus stop i used to take home (no. 28) and the interior design doesn’t look like a ramen store, but more of a western restaurant more.
Colour scheme: Wine and a bit of gold.
Let’s talk about the food that amazed me soo much! We ordered:
- Warm “Chiba” Pork Salad (千葉縣幸福麥猪沙律)
- Bake Mushroom (香焗日本蘑菇)
- Ume Shio Rahmen (梅‧鹽味拉麵) + Egg
- Karamiso (辣蔥味噌拉麵) + Egg
- CHABUYA WHITE ALE (啤酒)
The Pork salad came first and it looks very ordinary. After tasting the pork, it’s extraordinarily good!!!!
The pork was grilled?? You can taste the aroma of some very special salt. And the piece of pork just melted in your mouth!!! Incredibly delicious! The amazing part also comes in the sauce, although it looks quite plain, it’s actually quite strong, goes very well with the pork and those vegis! The favourite dish of the night!
As a big fan of all kinds of mushrooms, i am more interested in this dish more than the ramen, when it arrived, i was quite amazed by the look of it!
Finally, our main dish – ramen. I like ramen in soup with rather strong taste, so i choose the spicy miso soup whereas my friend choose the salty soup with a piece of plum.
His ramen looks a bit lighter but he said the soup is very good.
And here’s mine, i love those japanese spring onions and here’s how they descirbe it:
Besides the soup, the egg and the pork (叉燒) in the bowl is the real deal!! The egg is half done, with very strong taste of fresh eggs!! It’s really the best too!! And the叉燒 is half fat/slim, again melts in your mouth!!
This restaurants originates from tokyo situated in Omotesando Hills with long queues. So, luckily that we dont need to wait here in Hong Kong!!
This is really one of the best ramen restaurant in Hong Kong and i still cannot stop thinking about the taste of the Chiba pork. The only bad thing is that it’s really quite expensive!! So go when you have enough money in your pocket!!
Finally thanks Mr. G for treating me such a wonderful dinner!
