Last Friday, I met up with my Melbourne friends for a dinner. We agree to meet at 7.30pm but I arrive close to 8.30pm instead. Blame everything to the jam in the toll and "Jln. Gatot Subroto" --___--lll . We wanted to eat at Social House or Canteen but both places were full and decided to try this Japanese Ramen eatery in Ex, Plaza Indonesia. This restaurant only just open up less than 2 months and if I'm not mistaken I think I ate one time at the other branch in Plaza Senayan. But anyways, just to drool our mouth all over again here are my personal reviews;
Price : Rp 38,000++
Score : 6.0 / 10
» This dish is a stew, boiled to tender and i really mean tender. Even though it is the belly of the pork, it was not as "disgusting" or oily / yucky as I thought. It was actually quite pleasant, the soy like sauce was nice.
Price : Rp 38,000++

» Squirt some lemon over it and apply some fresh chili (ask the waiter for it) and feel the party on your taste buds. Okay, I admit I felt guilty because of the FATS!!! But it was worth it, ohhh I can feel my cholesterol level shooting up :p
Price : Rp 30,000++
Score : 5.5 / 10
» This was "okay" for me. The skin was slightly too thick for me but crispy!! There is a choice of pork or chicken meat, I ordered the pork and wasn't as good as "Kwo Tie San Tung". The dipping sauce was sour and tangy, a good combination.
Price : Rp 52,000++

» The above 3 dish were the starters and here comes the main course! Karashi ramen is slightly more spicy than "Marutama Ramen" but still not spicy at all for me. Maybe my taste buds are completely immune to mild chili. Nevertheless, this has very good calming broth, I love it. A big bowl of thin ramen (very very fulling), 2 slices of 'char siu' and lots of spring onions. I was so full and satisfied leaving the place with a big tummy.
