You might have heard of Aya tsukemen, but they’ve just opened a new shop specialising in chicken broth ramen! They currently offering a grand opening promotion at $88 per ramen bowl, it’s a great deal and we highly recommend you to have a try!
▮ 雞白湯拉麵 (柚子麵底)｜HKD 88｜✯ : 7.5 ⭐️ ▯ 𝘊𝘩𝘪𝘤𝘬𝘦𝘯 𝘣𝘳𝘰𝘵𝘩 𝘳𝘢𝘮𝘦𝘯 (𝘺𝘶𝘻𝘶 𝘯𝘰𝘰𝘥𝘭𝘦𝘴) The chicken soup is made by simmering 70kg of chicken and chicken bones for 24 hours without any milk. The result is a rich and flavourful broth that is sure to satisfy.
The yuzu noodles are fragrant with a mild citrus flavour that balances perfectly with the soup. A side of yuzu wasabi sauce is included to allow customers to customise the flavour, though the wasabi taste can be slightly overpowering for me. The bowl is filled with a generous amount of high-quality chicken, including two large slices of thinly sliced chicken and a piece of chicken char siu.
The picture shows a portion for two people of fried burdock silk, which is delicious but needs improvement in the oil separation process to reduce greasiness and make it crispier. Unfortunately, the soft-boiled egg was a bit of a letdown, as it was more like a regular half-cooked egg with a slightly too runny yolk.
▮ 日本釀雞翼 (餃子)｜HKD 15｜✯ : 8 ⭐️⭐️ ▯ 𝘑𝘢𝘱𝘢𝘯𝘦𝘴𝘦 𝘴𝘵𝘶𝘧𝘧𝘦𝘥 𝘤𝘩𝘪𝘤𝘬𝘦𝘯 𝘸𝘪𝘯𝘨 (𝘥𝘶𝘮𝘱𝘭𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘮𝘦𝘢𝘵) The stuffed chicken wings are freshly fried, with a crispy outer layer and a juicy, tender meat filling. The dumpling filling is especially generous, and we both agreed that it was better than the mentaiko filling.
▮ 日本釀雞翼 (明太子)｜HKD 15｜✯ : 7 ⭐️ ▯ 𝘑𝘢𝘱𝘢𝘯𝘦𝘴𝘦 𝘴𝘵𝘶𝘧𝘧𝘦𝘥 𝘤𝘩𝘪𝘤𝘬𝘦𝘯 𝘸𝘪𝘯𝘨 (𝘮𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘢𝘪𝘬𝘰) Likewise, the mentaiko stuffed chicken wing is also fresh and crispy on the outside, with a juicy, tender meat filling. However, the mentaiko filling is too overwhelming, overpowering the taste of the chicken wing.
p.s. Limited time offer during the grand opening: Chicken broth Ramen at $88, comes with a complimentary chilled soda water
p.p.s. For now, the shop is a one-man show – the chef takes orders, collects payment, cooks, and serves at the same time. She could only makes 2 bowls of ramen per round, so customers should be patience and allow extra time waiting for their food.
p.p.p.s. Unsure if it’s because we were seated at the table near the entrance, but the lack of air conditioning in the shop made us sweat halfway through the meal.
