Daruma Ramen

Restaurants, Japanese Orchard

Time Out says

When Hong Kong fashion designer Charlie Chan didn’t succeed in coercing his favourite Japanese ramen restaurant to set up shop in the city, he did what most entrepreneurs would – set up his own. Teaming up with a seasoned Japanese chef, he embarked on a six-month process of recreating the flavour burned into his mind and in 2010, set up one of Hong Kong’s top ramen restaurants in the Causeway Bay neighbourhood. He’s now branching out to capitalise on Singapore’s ramen craze, simultaneously opening two outlets featuring his brand of Kyushu-style ramen, made with bones from Dutch-imported pigs. A simple menu offers diners the option of three styles of soup – shoyu, spicy and tonkotsu (from $13) – with the addition of a Pollock roe topping its distinguishing factor from most other joints. And if you want even more flavour from the soup, be sure to ask for the secret ‘double soup’ option when ordering at the counter – it packs even more porky flavour without thickening the soup (you heard it here first!)
