Ikkoryu Fukuoka Ramen

A spontaneous meet-up brought us here at Ikkoryu Fukuoka Ramen, located at the new wing of Shangri-La Plaza Mall. Our group has a list of restaurants for us to dine, and so far, we have only eaten at 2, including Ikkoryu.

Only my second time to eat at a place where ramen is the star of the menu. We took our sweet time in choosing our ramen so that we can taste three different kinds in one go. In the end, I agreed on having the Black Garlic Tonkotsu pictured above, just so my friend can have her bowl of Ajitama Tonkotsu. #truefriendstory haha! My other friend just wants her ramen plain and simple, and the safest item on the menu is the Ikkoryu Original Tonkotsu.

All three are best-sellers, according to our server that day.

First time

We also ordered gyoza, which arrived before the ramen bowls, but no picture, because we’re busy talking. Heh.

It was only when these bowls arrived that the social media foodies in us were activated. Haha! Five minutes tops for variations of this set-up! Haha!

Ramen party!

Clockwise from top left: Ikkoryu Original Tonkotsu, Ajitama Tonkotsu and Black Garlic Tonkotsu. Order is also in terms of flavor intensity. The original one was too plain for me; the Ajitama has more “tama” (LOL), it has more kick; the Black Garlic’s rich, as expected, but need not worry because eating it won’t result into garlicky breath. Midway through our meal, silence enveloped our table. Eating ramen is serious business, that by the end of our meal we were all complaining of neck pain. Needless to say, I ended up feeling full AND needing more water even after hours of eating it. Regardless, I’ll definitely come back.

Ikkoryu Fukuoka Ramen is located at the swanky new wing of Shangri-la Plaza Mall.
