Preparation of the ramen back in the kitchen
I was excited to finally get invited and try the Ippudo Ramen here in Indonesia. Ippudo has been my ultimate favourite ramen before it had opened here. Although its been around a year they’ve opened in Pacific Place, this was going to be my very first time to try their new menu, the Sapporo Chicken Ramen.
The Chicken Ramen is only available here in Indonesia, and made due to high customer demand. Most of the Indonesian people here do not eat pork, so I guess that’s why they decided to change and bring a substitute.
The Sapporo Chicken ramen is served in a white bowl and a black spoon. They differentiate their utensils to cater to the non pork-eating crowd. The taste however did not disappoint. I loved it, but I did not love it as much as I loved the pork. The chicken meat was less juicier compared to the pork. I’m not saying it didn’t taste good, but I prefer the pork more than the chicken. But if you’re going for the chicken, I suggest you to order the spicy one because spicy goes better with chicken.
The Buta Ramen, or whats known as the pork, has a little bit more “oomph” in the taste, and definitely more delicious. The soup or broth is very strong and I love how when the yolk for the egg melts and it just gets mixed altogether. An explosion of flavours in every spoon.
Another fun fact I should note, their noodles are curvy. They are curvy because it is a perfect combination to be eaten with the minced meat. It will get stuck in one of the strands and easier to eat.
Lastly, we were given to try the Japanese Pannacota. This is a unique find and a must try. I don’t think you’ll ever find any kind of Pannacotta like this in Jakarta. The texture is somewhat like tofu, and it is not that sweet. As for the powder, I think it has a floss like texture and taste, and the entire thing just blends in very well. I liked it a lot.
