Yoshimaru Ramen Bar

Traditional Hakata Ramen


It’s no secret that i adore Japanese Food and Ramen certainly made me fall in love with noodles once again. Since young, i’m always more of a rice person. Given a choice, i will pick rice. But Ramen changed my perspective of noodles. I Love Hakata Ramen due to their thick milky-pork-bones broth and their thin, fine and Chewy (Q) noodles.

Over the weekend, We were craving for some noodles hence we decided to go back to Yoshimaru Ramen again.



This is not my first bowl of Yoshimaru Ramen. I’ve definitely visited them more than 5 times. But this time round, we tried something new – their toasted garlic ramen and their mini burgers.


At Yoshimaru,you will be given a bowl of sesame seeds. This sesame seeds can be used to compliment your ramen. I guess it would be fun for the kids?



The Toasted Garlic Ramen ($13) came first and frankly, it was a bit of disappointment for us. It looks slightly different from the picture in the Menu. And yes, we all know the food doesn’t always looks the same but the first impression of Toasted Garlic Ramen was that it looks really oily and surely, the taste of our bowl of toasted garlic ramen falls short of expectation for us.




Their Traditional Hakata Ramen 「博多ーらーめん」- priced at $11 is cheaper and consisted of the following ingredients;

  1. Soft Boiled Egg (Good Runny Tamago (Eggs)
  2. Cloud Ear Mushrooms
  3. Spring Onions
  4. Thin Tasty Noodles
  5. 2 Piece of Charsiews


 There’s one particular thing i really like about this bowl of ramen – their thin, non-curly and most importantly, non-soggy noodles. Their soup was savoury but i prefered Menya Shinchan.  🙂 I’m no big eater. So despite the fact that there’s only two small little pieces of char-siew, it’s perfectly fine with me.  But for the guys, the two piece of char-siew might be too little for them.



If you are fussy about your noodles, you can always D-I-Y (Do it yourself) and choose your own ingredients.



Or alternatively, there’s always the Shabu Shabu Pork Ramen ($14) which my guy thought its more value for money since there’s more Shabu Shabu for him. 😐



For Citibank Card Members, for every two bowls of ramen you purchased, you get to choose between either a plate of Chicken Karaage or the Mini Burger Combo. We went for the latter as we haven’t tried them yet.  🙂

Lastly, we had our free plate of Mini Burger Combo (Teriyaki Chicken Burger, Mentaiko Mayo Prawn Burger and Spicy Cha Su Burger).  This small little burgers looks totally adoring and easy on our mouth. It strikes me as a great resemblance to those we always have in MOS Burger, except that its smaller. 🙂



In all, even though i had tasted better ramens, i still enjoyed my bowl of Traditional Hakata Ramen. Sometimes, its about the company too. I would be back but i would only pick the Traditional Hakata Ramen. 🙂

      Offspring : Hi there! I went there when the shop first opened, its really about the same standard. Their ramen is not the best but its probably one of the more decent ones around the west side. 🙂 Andi would only eat the Traditional Hakata Ramen. I’m waiting for Ippudo! 🙂
