Bari-Uma opened a 2nd shop on TST side today, and this is actually my 1st visit to this imported Ramen shop. Previously, I have heard from fellow foodie friends that the soup broth is kind of normal tasting only, despite it being shipped from Japan Hiroshima directly. After my trial of their 2 Pork and Chicken Paitan ramens today however, I have to say the balance and sophistication suits me well as an everyday food.. This restaurant is also part of Listed Company 00703 Future Bright Group, which operates many restaurants within Asia, Hong Kong and Macau...
Edamame Beans -
It's the perfect season for these in Spring, either these or Sora Mame broadbeans.
Fried Chicken Karaage - 唐揚げ
This was fried really well and non greasy, but the Mayo sauce was the highlight for me. Not heavy and just right. Also dipped into the Chili Spicy dip in the background too, which is very Hiroshima like in Concept... ~ 8/10
Tonkotsu Pork Ramen with Size 22 Noodles, Soft Egg -
This ramen is based on Kyushu Hakata style tonkotsu ramen, but based from Hiroshima, more famously known for their Chili sauce sip. I previously heard from others that the soup base is kind of average, but personally I thought this was rather balanced with sophisticated layering. It's not too heavy at all and I can taste both the pork and chicken taste, also the Size 22 noodles taste. ~ 8.5/10
Egg and Noodles both Good -
None were over-cooked..
Chicken Paitan Ramen with Seaweed -
This is offered as an alternative to the Pork Ramen, to suit more the Halal or Christian eaters. The Chicken Roulade was done really well and supple soft indeed. The soup however has competition in town, Matsuichiya and Torihana offer even more sophistications in the base broths. Here it was not too shabby but just losing out on the tiniest of margins in taste... ~ 7/10
羽根つき餃子 - Hane Tsuki Gyoza Dumplings
The famous Gyoza Dumplings with a crispy Skin... We also dipped this into the Chili Sauce ~ 7.5/10
