Ramen Bar Suzuki, Circular Road


Here's a bowl of basic tonkotsu ramen Ramen Bar Suzuki (61 Circular Road, #01-01) with 'hard' noodles and 'strong' flavored broth sans the red pickled ginger. The customizable options for each bowl was of greater granularity than what I've encountered before. One can choose items to omit on top of the usual slew of add on and strength of flavor and oil. On hindsight, I should have opted for 'harder' since 'hard' just fell right in the middle spectrum of options and it could've been a little chewier for texture.

While I felt it was an acceptable bowl of ramen, I don't think the broth was interesting enough that'll make me crave for it soon. Though flavorful, it had lacked a certain creamy depth which I preferred and it didn't make me want to finish up after the noodles. The charshu was thinly sliced and tender, but was otherwise ordinary. What was interesting were the "flavors" available for tonkotsu ramen which including squid ink, sakura ebi and even a cheese & basil rendition. There were free flow hard boiled eggs and steamed rice for dinner, but those eggs were certainly difficult to peel. Half the whites were lost, stuck to the shells. Or maybe I just suck at peeling eggs.
