Ichigen by the harbour [一幻拉麵 Ebisoba Ichigen]

As well as Wanchai, you can now dine at the Ocean Terminal for Ichigen Ramen.

The new ramen bar is much more spacious and at the far end you have beautiful views of the harbour.

Ichigen specializes in a strong sweet shrimp broth which is prepared daily by boiling incredible amounts of sweet shrimp heads to create the signature Ebisoba.
The Ebi Mazesoba is exclusive at this branch and not even available in Japan!
It is noodles topped with diced BBQ pork, hot spring egg, sweet shrimp flavoured tempura bits, green onions and seaweed .

When you eat it, everything is tossed together so that each strand is covered in aromatic shrimp sauce. The flavours are much intense as the sauce is stronger than the broth.
On the menu, the also have the regular ramen with 3 types of seasoning, miso, salt and soy sauce.

Had the basic noodles which come with a slice of roast pork, half an egg sprinkled with pretty pink crispies made of flour mixed with red ginger and prawn broth.
The broth was rich with unami as expected with a slight bitterness which hung to the noodles well.

As I have previously tried the rice ball, I had the gyozas.
Strangely, they tasted really good with the ramen white pepper on the table.
