ECHIGOYA RAMEN - MELAWAI

Finally, touch down to this place after a long-long-long-time. Introduce you one of the best ramen shop in town : Echigoya Ramen.



Located at Little Tokyo (Melawai/Blok M), this restaurant open for lunch at 12-2pm and have a break before re-opening for dinner on 6 pm. So, please note their opening hours tho'. Their interior design is not kind of luxury with ornaments or anything. It just simple one but create a good vibe of Japanese traditional restaurant.


By the way, we also find many native Japanese here (and we are just the only Indonesia, except for the crew), so I guess this restaurant should be the-one-who-can-have-similar-taste-with-japan. So, let's try some

Tonkotsu Ramen - IDR 59,8k

Claimed as new menu (although has been established for year) tonkotsu is my first kind of ramen that totally in my mind. Maybe it is because that this ramen is originally from Kyushu in Hakata District, Fukuoka and sometimes it called as Hakata Ramen (Yes, we know that there is a lot of Hakata Ramen in Jakarta, nowadays). Therefore we would like to taste some of it!


Based on what I search, this ramen has a thick broth made from boiling pork bones, fat, and collagen over high heat for many hours, which suffuses the broth with a hearty pork flavor and a creamy consistency that rivals milk, melted butter or gravy (depending on the shop).


We thought that we will find the thick. But, fortunately, they have made their broth milder to Indonesian tastebuds.

Koteri Ramen - IDR 59,8k

Koteri Ramen is a little bit similar with tonkotsu ramen but they add some fatback into the soup. The Fatback was not just one or two but it was soooo many till it makes the soup thicker. Oh, we choose Shio for our soup. They do salty-taste-here. We guess we would like to take shoyu sometimes.


Finally, after taste some of their menu, we can say it for yes-this ramen sort like nearly similar with the original one in Japan, despites of the-amount-of-meat-that-they-served (Well, meat is really expensive in Indonesia, I guess) and thickness of broth (which Japanese has the thick one but Indonesian love a little milder so the broth isn't as thick as the Japanese one). Another thing that must to be highlighted is they have a big portion (Perhaps 50% more than any ramen shop that you find at Shopping Mall)
