Ajisai @ Hokkaido Marche, Orchard Central


Ajisai, a small ramen chain from Hokodate in southern Hokkaido has set up shop at Hokkaido Marche (B2 Orchard Central, 181 Orchard Road). They are supposedly known for their shio ramen but I was intrigued by their se'abura charshumen bowl which featured bits of pork back fat. I got a squid ink bowl which in honestly, didn't look nor taste like it had much of squid ink for any flavour to register. The broth was porky and salty in a nice way and it seemed that the noodle had picked up some of those flavours as well. Charshu had a good shoyu flavour while the half ajitama didn't seem to have any at all. Must remember to forgo the menma the next time. Those were pungent.

I wonder what's the piece of bread about though.
