The popular ramen shop from Sapporo, Hokkaido Edisoda Ichigen opens its first branch in Hong Kong after the success in Japan, Taiwan, Malaysia and more. Don’t call yourself a foodie if you haven’t tried it.
What makes Edisoda Ichigen stand out is the original shrimp soup - made of huge amount of shrimp heads and freshly made every day. The soup will be cooked with shrimp oil, lard, garlic and grated singer when right after you order the ramen. Other than that, you can also choose from mild and rich pork bone soup blended with the shrimp soup if you prefer a more traditional flavour. The seasoning is also an important factor at Edisoda Ichigen, three options including Miso, Salt and Soy Salt are designed to be complimentary to the soup and Salt is most recommended as it brings out the taste of Hokkaido’s marine. Last but not least, there are thick and thin noodle to choose from up to your own preference.
If you cannot be satisfied with just a bowl of ramen, side dishes such as Shrimp Rice Ball ($20), Pan-Fried Dumplings (5pcs, $35) and Half Boiled Egg ($10) will fill you up too. For drinks, beer and soda from Hokkaido, oolong tea and coke are available.
Since there are more than 18 combinations of the ramen, it really hard to choose but the shrimp soup with salt and thin noodle ($88) will be my choice but I have heard that the shrimp soup with salt and thick noodle is the most popular choice and what’s yours?
