Food: Ramen Nagi, Greenbelt III

Thursday, May 28, 2015

Short intro:
Call me weird, but I'm not really into Japanese food. Before this night, I've tasted Ramen once. I've always dreamed of exploring Japan, but I'm not sure I'm into their food. It's probably my salty taste.

So anyway, my brother insisted on eating here because apparently, it's highly recommended by his friends. Not liking Japanese food, it's my first time to encounter the table sharing concept they have. I googled about it and found this out:

Table sharing is a common practice in busy restaurants in Japan. In Japanese culture, being invited to a person's home to share a meal is rather uncommon and indicates a close relationship. However, sharing a table in public with strangers is just a routine occurrence with no special meaning. It is an example of how Japanese concepts of personal place are adapted to crowded urban living conditions.

Now, let's talk food.

My order

Original King (Butao)
"Luscious signature tonkotsu pork-broth"
Award-winning tonkotsu pork broth prepared in the traditional, mark-wateringly rich, fresh and aromatic; special handcrafted noodles and classic Nagi pork chaschu.

Damn! Now I'm gonna have to explain to everybody why I suddenly shifted to I-have-nothing-to-eat-at-a-Japanese-restaurant to let's-eat-Ramen-please!! I loved it so much I couldn't stop thinking about it!  Although I'm probably going to shift from pork belly to shoulder.

Red King (Akao)
"The ultimate in savory spiciness"
A striking blend of garlic, chili oil and cayenne pepper in a velvet broth; topped by a tempting ball of miso-infused minced pork and select Nagi cayenne,  with tender caschu. 

Juicy meat and vegetables seasoned with Japanese spices wrapped in Nagi's special dough and served on a sizzling hot plate with a delightful blend of soy sauce and mayo

Okay, I eat gyoza. To me it's just like dumpling. Well it is dumpling. Whatever. But I love it.

To sum it all up, my experience in Ramen Nagi has indeed changed my mind about Japanese food. It still does not fall into my favorite cuisine, but at least there's something I will order. I cannot wait for my next Ramen Nagi visit.
