KURA RAMEN – 85/100

Noodles – 30/35

The noodles in Kura Ramen are medium-thick, with a slightly twisted and wavy appearance. Offering a firm bite, they provide a satisfyingly filling mouthfeel. Their taste carries a subtle yet pleasant earthy undertone, enhancing the overall experience.

Soup – 30/35

The soup boasts a peppery forefront, followed by layers of savory sweetness and smoky undertones. The presence of crushed black pepper adds depth to the broth, while its slightly thick, gravy-like texture speaks to its rich flavor. A harmonious blend of Tonkotsu base and special miso paste creates a complex flavor profile that intrigues the palate, leaving a lasting impression.

Meat – 15/20

Featuring a sizable grilled slice of meat, Kura Ramen offers a textural delight with a firm yet chewy consistency. The meat’s fatty parts are exceptionally tender, effortlessly complementing the robust soup without overpowering it. Balanced marination ensures that the chashu harmonizes with the overall meal experience.

Toppings – 10/10

In addition to the main components, Kura Ramen is adorned with small spicy onion bits that impart a delightful piquant flavor. The inclusion of black fungus adds a refreshing element, striking a perfect balance between softness and crunchiness, further enhancing the overall dining pleasure.
