I am so happy that I recently found hidden gem ramen shop that is located at second level of International Plaza.
I called it hidden gem because this shop is located in such unexpected place (for me 😛) and they sell Michelin Bib Gourmand award ramen that definitely will not disappoint you.
This place name is Enishi. As I mentioned earlier, Enishi received Michelin Bib Gourmand award in Kobe – Japan.
Enishi only sells two different types of ramen: Dan Dan Noodle and Japanese Dashi noodle. So it will be easier for you to choose 😂. I am salute with their bold decision. I agree, rather than selling a lot of menu variants, it will be better only selling their specialty one. It will reduce unnecessary cost, time and it will show their confidence on their ramen.
The head chef also comes from Japan so I do believe ramen that he makes has similar taste with the Japan one.
I try their Japanese Dashi Noodle. There are three different prices of Japanese Dashi Noodle for you to choose: basic, regular and special. Different prices get different kind and amount of toppings.
I choose the regular one ($19.80). Regular one contains noodle, clear dashi broth, two slices of smoked duck, cha shu and onsen egg.
Fyi, dashi based ramen is the latest trend of ramen in Japan which soup stock is derived from Kombu (edible kelp) and dried goods.
This noodle is also not the same like normal ramen shop because this noodle is wider (like mee pok shape) and has chewy texture.
I thought clear dashi broth has no taste / very light taste but after I tried it, I could taste smoked duck flavour on the dashi broth even though I haven’t eaten the smoked duck.
They also put slices of either citrus / yuzu inside this ramen and it enhances the fresh and rich flavours of this ramen.
Cha shu is yummy and melt in my mouth.
Smoked duck has pinky colour, tasty and tender.
Onsen egg also has the slight sweet taste.
Each ingredient inside this ramen brings up their best taste to make this overall ramen tasted rich and stand up very well.
After I finished up my meal, they generously gave free Japanese cakes named Pastry Snaffle’s Hakodate 1998. This cake is also yummy. It’s a very kind gesture that they provide to make customers happy.
Oh ya, this shop’s design is like small ramen shop in Japan (similar like what I saw in television) and only able to fit nine person to dine in. The chef and staff are also friendly enough to chit chat with us. You can also see how they make the ramen, torch the cha shu and etc.
They successfully made the relaxed environment so people could enjoy the meal to the fullest.
I strongly recommend you to try this ramen. It’s one of the best ramen that I have tried before.
