Kame Ramen was not our first target, not really sure where we would go, but looking for some comfort food as the temperature was cold. As we were walking on Park Avenue, we noticed this place that seem to have a nice atmosphere.
We were not too hungry so, we only ordered one appetizer, setting our sights on the Kakuni buns, made with pork belly, mayo and Japanese BBQ sauce. This was really good, different from the usual pork buns you get in this kind of places.
We then ordered their tonkotsu ramen, made with a creamy pork broth, braised pork belly, a soft boiled egg, seaweed, corn and black garlic oil. The ramen was superb: the broth was very good, definitely creamy and I was glad that the black garlic oil was not too overpowering. The braised pork was good too, although a bit tough. But overall a good dish that I would recommend there.
It was a quick and simple meal, in a restaurant that is worth knowing, far from the hype of Ippudo or Momofuku Noodle Bar. I will have to go back at some point to try some other dishes there from their small menu.
Enjoy (I did)!
