Chicken Karaage Ramen
Arigataya Ramen is one of the very famous ramen place in Perth, situated right smack bang in the Northbridge where all the famous Asian eateries are. I was looking forward to having a soothing bowl of noodle soup and haven’t been back there for a while now. I recalled I went back there about a year ago. I ordered a plain gyoza dumplings Ramen but added Chicken Karaage as toppings because that price was cheaper than ordering a Karaage Ramen itself.
When the order came, it looks good but when I bit into the noodles, the ramen did not have the bouncy texture anymore so that was a little disappointing. The chicken karaage was mediocre. The soup base was still good and very tasty so I slurped till the last drop.
The ramen place now have a TV that shows patron the entire ramen making process from making the noodles from scratch to broth preparation. It was a well documented short film that gave nice insight of ramen making process which does take many hours and effort. I will probably not go there for a while because there are tastier ramen place in town such as from my favourite Zensaki place at Barrack Street – though I am not sure if their Ramen is made from scratch.
