Worth a try.
What’s this volcano thingy? It’s Tonkotsu Kazan Ramen! Kazan (火山) means volcano in Japanese. What happens here is that your noodles are served to you in an extremely hot stone bowl. The waiter then pours the tonkotsu soup from the flask into the stone bowl before quickly capping the volcano lid. The end result is lots of steam gushing through the tiny opening, creating a volcano effect minus the eruption of tonkotsu soup and ramen. Be careful. 🔥
Pretty interesting experience. After a minute or so, the waiter removes the volcano lid and viola! Your noodles are ready to be eaten.
I chose the spicy miso ($15.80). I loved it! The soup was flavourful and the ingredients were all crunchy and fresh. The char siew was quite forgettable though.
Enjoy your ramen! The meal comes with a bowl of rice which you can add into the soup after finishing your noodles. Two ways of enjoyment.
Won’t you be too full? Yes and no. Firstly, all ramen comes in two sizes. The smaller portion suffices for most people. Secondly, it looks like a lot of carbs, but actually the noodles are being propped up by a generous handful of bean sprouts and vegetables. This prevents the noodles from getting burnt by the hot stone bowl. That said, this ramen is certainly not for you if you happen to dislike bean sprouts.
