Date Published : 06 Mar 2018

As part of our Ramen Bites series, we've rounded up the best ramens in Hong Kong right now. 

Ajitama shio soba ramen @Tsuta
This award-winning Japanese import is known for their soba noodles that are slightly thicker than the average ramen noodles, and their refreshing chicken soup base flavoured with their signature housemade truffle oil. Their ajitama shio soba comes with char siu, bamboo shoot, julienned leeks, flavoured onsen egg and green olive puree. For a small extra price, you can get three more char siu added on. Shop G111, G/F, Gateway Arcade, Harbour City, 3-27 Canton Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, 31882748; tsuta.comBlack King @Butao ramen 
This one is a local ramen shop that has played quite a role in setting the ramen trend in Hong Kong. They boast a variety of soup bases from their original Butao to their squid ink based “Black King” and even a pesto-version named “Green King”. Our favourite is definitely the umami-packed Black King featuring their signature pork soup stock with a black sauce made with black garlic, squid ink, minced pork, vegetables and a mix of secret seasonings. It’s served with a piece of char siu and a bountiful amount of chopped scallions.  69 Wellington St, Central; butaoramen.com Lobster with cheese ramen @Baikohken Ramen
Baikohken Ramen, a Hokkaido import that has stirred up quite a hype, has just recently opened its Causeway Bay location. We tried their limited creamy crawfish ramen that features 3 char siu pieces, gigantic scallops, a juicy lobster, bamboo shoots, seaweed, scallions, an onsen egg and a shower of cheese. The entire affair sits atop a creamy soup base and a Hokkaido-style noodle with a chewier bite than the norm. The whole bowl is then covered with a variety of cheeses that are melted along with the soup, finished with a generous grating of Hokkaido cheese. There are only 10 bowls of these served per day, so grab 'em when you can. G/F, Tang Fai Building, 44 Tang Lung Street, Causeway Bay Four-charsiu tsukemen @FU-UNMARU
Japanese import FU-UNMARU specialises in tsukemen, or dipping ramen, in which cooked noodles are dipped into a rich saucy soup base along with other additions. Their signature includes the indulgent fish powder pork bone soup tsukemen with renditions of added flavours such as curry. The one we chose was a curry tsukemen served with 4 gigantic pieces of tender melt-in-your-mouth. thick-cut, grilled char siu, onsen egg and bamboo shoots. Shop B, G/F, W Square, 314 - 324 Hennessy Road, Wan Chai, 3188 1472; facebook.com/hkfuunmaru
