Service is fast and speedy, but the queue is long nonetheless. The soup is rich and thick, but the noodle still taste like flour. I think the noodle is too much for that amount of soup. And the chasiu is merely 3 thin slices. Without additinal thick chasiu side dish, it's definitely taste too floury... Yamagoya Ramen in Basement UOB building ( now closed ) tastes much better..

Tori karaage is thin and a bit on a hard side. I prefer Ramen 38 one.

Anyway, since it's close to my mom's house so it's okay... their greenish chopped garlic is unique, though, as the raw garlic that you can crush and add to your ramen

If you love thick, oily ramen broth then this is the place for you. The pork meat has the most fat we have ever seen, and all the food comes with generous doses of salt. Good ramen but not to our liking, we prefer the more balanced ramen like the one at Hardy's Sanur.

Easily the best ramen in Surabaya right now. The stock is cloudy and rich in gelatin, evidence of long simmering. The chashu is so tender it melts in your mouth! The eggs are perfectly medium-boiled with tender whites and a creamy yolk. The best part? You can add as much garlic as you'd like (and I love garlic).

Some family members don't like the ramen due to its very very thick stock. It can get cloying but Hakata offers a thinned out version of its ramen for those who don't like jelly-like soups. Some people report feeling thirsty afterwards (including me) but that's to be expected from this much gelatin. No, MSG does not make you thirsty any more than salt makes you thirsty. Even if they add MSG, it's completely harmless.

The fried gyoza is better than the grilled version. The crispy exterior traps the juices inside the gyoza. Be careful when biting into one as the juices might scald your mouth! A few leak during the frying process but still tasty!

I tried the curry because I got curious. The curry itself isn't that good. I'd rather have the instant curry roux but the tonkatsu is wonderfully crunchy! The portion size is huge too. You can share it between two people.
