Rahmen Genki Artarmon

Mr Curious has a work function tonight so I asked my brother B to come over for dinner. I wasn't in a cooking mood and we ended up trying a ramen place that my friend Fleur tweeted about a while ago.

Rahmen Genki is an unassuming Japanese ramen house close to Artarmon station.

First up was a plate of gzoya ($6).

The skin of the gyoza was nice and thin as Japanese dumplings should be. The filling tasted a lot like the ones in Chinese dumplings, which was not a bad thing per se, just different from what I expected.

I am on a eating plan at the moment where I'm not supposed to have grain-based products at dinner (will blog about that soon!), so I ordered a chilli teriyaki chicken ($12.50) and asked them to serve it without rice.

I've never heard of chilli teriyaki before so I didn't know what to expect. It was quite nice actually. B tried it and say it was exactly as advertised - teriyaki chicken with chilli added. The flavours were well-balanced, I could feel the heat of the chilli without it overwhelming my taste buds (which was important because I didn't have any rice to soften the blow of the chilli). I don't know the ingredient list of a typical teriyaki sauce but this one was tomato based. The chicken pieces were generous too, although there were a fair amount of chicken skin which I removed.

B ordered a spicy ramen (I think it's called Negi but I'm not sure, $11.50).

Accompanying the ramen were 2 slices of chashu (sliced pork), corn, bamboo shoots, sprouts and spring onions. There were no boiled egg but interestingly there were bits of cooked eggs throughout the broth.

I had a taste of the broth, it was one of those spicy broth that didn't taste very hot at first but kicked in after a few seconds.

B said the ramen was not as nice as its equivalent at Ryo's at Crows Nest, but that was a pretty high benchmark to set. B also said that he preferred "clear" broth and didn't like the bits and pieces of egg in it. I didn't think it was a problem.

I ordered the Tonkotsu ramen for TLG ($11).

The choice was a selfish one - I like tonkotsu broth and wanted to try it. It was a milky-looking broth but the flavour was not that strong. I like broth so thick they're almost like soup, this was not quite it.

I couldn't resist and tried a few mouthful of the ramen and I loved its chewy texture. The chashu, on the other hand, were too thick for my liking and a bit bland.

I've had some fantastic ramen in my two trips to Japan, and a direct comparison between them and the ramen at Genki would surely be unfavourable to the latter. However it is a good casual dining option, and I didn't have to queue in the cold for a bowl of noodles like I have to at Ryo's. They have high chairs and child-friendly cutlery which is a plus for families with young kids. I'm glad to have find the joint. Thanks Fleur!

  1. Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of.

    I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people consider worries that they
    just don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
