In the same Corrs Lane building as spicy Sichuan House and Brutale, Fukuruyu Ramen is perfect for noodle chasers. Fukuryu Ramen (‘lucky dragon’ in Japanese), is the result of a complete renovation of the large, first-floor space, seating around 70 at small wooden tables and bench seating.
Fukuryu Ramen is owned by an Indonesian restaurant group that is also involved in a popular chain of ramen restaurants (Ikkousha) in Japan and South East Asia. The group is also opened the original Ikkousha restaurant in Fukuoka, Japan – home of the tonkotsu ramen – and this is the restaurant group’s first venue outside of Asia.
The first part of the menu is full of traditional ramen options: tonkatsu, miso, shoyu (soy sauce seasoned) and shio (salt seasoned) – The common denominators for most ramen establishments. They are made with rich broths, handmade noodles, thinly sliced meat that falls apart, and a perfectly cooked egg.
Then there are a few more ‘modern’ ramen styles that reflect trending styles straight from Japan. These include a dry vegetarian ramen, a dry oil ramen and a spicy ramen, with new additions to this part of the menu regularly, including tsukemen (dipping noodles), chicken tonkatsu, black ramen and red dragon ramen. There is also a small plates menu, with additional pub-style sharing plates to accompany a selection of Japanese beers, sake and rice wine.
