What to order: Yuzu shio ramen ($98)
Named after a mountain in Kanagawa, Japan, Afuri (a ramen shop from Tokyo which opened in Hong Kong in January 2020) is the popular noodle bar that patrons happily queue up for a bowl of yuzu shio ramen. It’s the most popular item on the menu and if you’ve tried it, then you already know why. Supple and bouncy homemade wheat noodles are placed in an intensely flavoured chicken broth which is brightened up by the citrusy flavour and aroma of yuzu. The smell alone will transport you to the middle of Ebisu in Tokyo, where the first Afuri shop opened. Happy slurping!
