I was invited for a tasting session and tried the following dishes:
Literally meaning ‘Dipping Noodles’, this fun cold thick ramen noodle dish is served with Chicken Chaysu, Nitamago, Kikurage Mushrooms, Green Onions and Sesame with Marukin Ramen’s famed warm dipping sauce on the side.
This was my favourite ramen at Marukin and I will order it again next time.
This hearty bowl of ramen offering that features all of the house specials such as the succulent slices of Chicken Chasyu, Chicken meat balls, a piece of Chicken wing, Shrimp wanton, Nitamago, Kikurage mushrooms, Green Onions, a piece of freshly toasted Nori seaweed and a light dash of sesame seeds.
Great for big eater who wants to try a bit of everything.
A veggie delight, this popular selection offers Wakame Seaweed and Corn atop a bowl of ultrathin ramen noodles with Kirurage Mushrooms, Green Onions and a sprinkling of sesame seeds.
A sumptuous bowl of thick egg ramen noodles with Japanese Leek, Kirurage Mushrooms, completely covered with a generous amount of Green Onions.
I like the simple, fuss-free environment at the restaurant. Prices are also reasonable for quality ramen in a generally expensive area.
