Tampopo's Kyushu Jyangara Ramen
Nibble & Scribble and I made last-minute plans for dinner after work last week. Having had a hectic time at work, we were both too hassled to think about where to eat at. We decided to revisit Tampopo.
We started with a plate of Fried Salmon Skin. When it arrived, we gave each other strange glances. The Salmon Skin bits had been over-fried (actually, it felt like it had been fried at least twice), to the extent that it was tough and hard. * Ew!!!
I wanted to try the Kyushu Jyangara Ramen out of curiosity. Bad mistake! It was terrible! The broth was watered down and had a synthetic flavour. The Char Siew was tough and tasteless. The only saving grace was the little dollop of Mentaiko in the soup. When I tried to bite into the Ajitama, my face turned green so naturally I didn't finish the egg. Yes, if you've read my previous post on ramen, you'd know that this meant that the yolk flavour was pretty strong. To make it worse, the egg didn't taste fresh. * Double ew!!!
My suggestion: Don't bother with the Kyushu Jyangara Ramen here but the Spicy Kurobuta Shabu Shabu Ramen is worth a try.
