Karata-men ($7.50)

Soup wise is average but the thin noodles made the ramen lack bite. Added spicy for the soup and it was slightly too spicy. So perhaps will not do that in future.

Black tonkotsu ramen ($7.90)

The pork slices were generous, slow roasted black garlic tonkotsu broth is flavourful and rather well balanced. Worth it at this price point.

Beef bowl large ($8)

Beef with sweet onions was nice as usual. Large bowl was abit too much so perhaps regular is better.

Curry beef rice ($8.90)

The japanese curry went well with the japanese pearl rice and beef. Overall a comforting jap meal.

DIY mega san ($9.90)

Ordered the original nori wrap with Japanese white rice, roasted shimeiji mushroom, ebiko, avocado, edamame and chicken strips, furikake and ebi fry. With spicy mayo sauce. Overall very nice combination and filling as well.

Ordered the full ramen with charsiu and flavoured egg (half). The broth was rather light. Charsiu was very slightly charred but not impressive. Nothing in the bowl stood out so overall just an very average bowl of ramen.

Salmon Aburi Don ($9.90+):
Salmon was cooked nicely, can taste the smokiness of the aburi salmon. Rice has vinegar taste which goes nicely together with the salmon.

Hotate with buttered corn ramen ($12.90+)

Can choose base from Paitan (white soup), miso and spicy. Chose the spicy soup base. It wasnt too spicy, just slightly and mild enough for everyone. The buttered corn tasted really good.. crunchy and fresh. The noodles were not too soft, and the crunchy beansprouts gave it a nice crunch too. Came with one boiled egg as well. Would say it's worth it for the price!

Curry Karaage ($8.90):
Chicken Karaage is fried well- crispy on the outside and tender in the inside. The chicken itself is also marinaded well. Goes perfectly with the curry which is very well balanced!

Tonkatsu Ramen ($15.90):
Ramen broth was quite light but flavorful.
Ramen noodles is quite soft, would prefer it to be firmer/al dente. Tonkatsu is average, would prefer it to be fattier/juicier. For this price, there is nothing to fuss/complain about.

Ebi fry ramen ($17.50)

The broth was very thick and had a strong shrimp taste. You can literally stir in the small shrimps sprinkled on top. There was also 2-3 pieces of pork ribs eat inside which were well marinated/braised. The ebi was tasty.

Wagyu beef bowl (regular) $10+

Total cost $11. Beef was soft but quantity not much in the regular bowl. Overall tasted average only.
