Déjà vu

Déjà vu it was! Not only did I head back to Pek Kio for the $10 dry version of Wah Kee Prawn Noodle, which I may add is scrumptious, (the generous portion of lard on the Mee Kia and those gigantic XXL sized-prawns full of roe are every reasons why you should go try it!!!) I also decided to pay a visit to Marutama Ramen to try out its Holy Grail – the Aka Ramen. Describe as Marutama original ramen, the soup base is made of Seven Kinds of Nuts topped with Coriander.

As compared to their chicken soup base, by far Aka Ramen’s broth won effortlessly. The rich brew is flavoursome enough, even before sprinkling the Fried Garlic Chips and Sesame Seed. What’s more a wring of the Lemon gives an invigorating twist to the soup. Although the Meatballs are nothing to shout about, Marutama’s springy noodles are a reminder why I came back for in the first place. We also ordered the Yaki Char Siu, or Grilled Sliced Roast Pork as a side.

A slightly thicker version of those that came with the noodle, the pork slices were mouth-watering, especially when you sink your teeth and nibble at the meat along with the layer of fats that came with it. However, I am beginning to find the queue of fifteen minutes for a table during peak period a little annoying - considering that Central Mall isn’t fully launched yet. Perhaps a good time for an expansion?
