I was so impressed with dinner at Tatsushi that I had to attend Tatsushi’s Ramen Day. Which occurs once a month.
Tatsushi provides three different ramen being the classic shio (salt), curry and spicy miso. The ramen is served in a bowl with spring onion, sprouts and generally char sui (pork meat). You can add additional toppings such as egg, sprouts, seaweed and noodles at an additional cost.
The tables are moved around to look like a typical ramen bar in Japan, where patrons generally sit along a bench facing the kitchen slurping their ramen and then quickly leave.
During the ramen days, you are encouraged to order your ramen at the counter and then find an available seat.
Spicy Ramen – The ramen comes fairly quickly. For the price that I paid I was expecting a few pieces of char sui. However it came with only one very thinly sliced pork. The broth was clear, full of flavour with a bit of oil at the top which you would expect in ramen. The spicy miso paste came in a separate serving dish where you can opt to add as much or as little of the spicy miso paste as you want. without thinking i opted to put the whole thing in. It was a little spicy but not overpowering spicy.
The egg was perhaps the highlight. Beautifully flavoured, giving off a delicate sweet but savoury flavour. The yolk itself was nice cooked where it was ever so slightly undercooked, that it looked runny but was not runny.
