Having purchased our tickets to take is to Macau we had 90 mins to kill. From the mall balcony a logo of a girl holding a steaming ramen bowl was winking at me.
Ajisen Raman is a chain of restaurants and has a vast menu. I normally shy away from places with such a big selection of dishes but I was hungry so I chose the pork Ramen and sat patiently awaiting my soup. It doesn’t come quickly but through the glass window to the kitchen I can see the chefs making the soups fresh. A good omen.
It arrived hot and steaming, having been freshly made. The soft boiled egg smiling at me through slices of pork. Garlic and spring onions float in the milky broth. The noodles are perfect, not too soft.
The broth is tangy with the garlic yet soft and moreish. As the egg yoke slowly bleeds into the broth it changes the flavour very slightly. There is so much wafer thin pork. Its lean and soft. This is a very big bowl of soup.
I really enjoyed it, there is possibly a touch too much garlic for me. But I still ate most of it.
