Marutama Ramen @ The Central


(Photo taken with Canon IXUS 120IS )

Most ramen used pork bone broth but at Marutama it is famed for its chicken broth, Toripaitan soup. Actually I have started to have a liking for chicken broth based soup because it does not leave me with oily lips.

Marutama Ramen 4.2/5

Marutama Ramen ($12) uses homemade Hakata-styled ramen noodle which is hard and thin. I liked the tenderness texture of the noodle. The greens also gave the bowl of ramen extra sweetness and texture. By the way, the bowl of ramen only came with only a piece of char siew and I have to pay an additional $1.50 for the Ajituke Tamago (Half boiled seasoned egg).

Yaki Char Siu 4.5/5

If you are not content with just a bowl of ramen, try the Yaki Char Siu ($6). The grilled roast pork is flavourfully seasoned and had a lovely smokey aroma that melted in the mouth.

  1. Looks very yummy! How is the Ajituke Tamago?(overcooked or ok?)

    1. The yolk is still runny. I would say perfectly cooked. However a bit salty if eaten alone.

  2. Hakata ramen is thin and straight,Marutama ramen is thin and curly

    1. Thank you. I learnt something from you today.
