Ramen has become a huge trend nowadays, and people have made a big fuzz about it. And honestly, I have no idea why it could be this huge all of sudden. I meant, Ramen have been quite popular a long time ago, and it wasn't huge, not until almost a year ago. Me myself, personally is not a big fan of Ramen, nor a hater. And to tell you the truth, I have only eaten Ramen in about 4 Ramen Restaurants, and it was based on mere curiosity. And apparently 1 of those, is Hakata Fukushuu. Just about a few
The inside is pretty okay, quite nice. The first floor is kinda cozy, though with Air-Con, it was a bit hot. The inside is pretty spacious too, with tables and tall chairs. The lighting is quite nice, with LED as their main lamps on the ceiling. The lighting is good, but it might be too bright at some spots. In the room, there was only a couple dining in here. There is also a row of paintings on the wall. The paintings are beautiful-ish. Seeing the menu book, I began to choose my dish. There were 4 choices (each choices are available in Pork and Chicken) available for us, since we used a voucher. We happened to choose all the four, and to make it specific, here they are: Buta Ramen or Ramen Babi Spesial (32k), Tori Shoyu Ramen or Ramen Ayam Kecap (32k), Tori Miso Ramen or Ramen Ayam Tauco (32k), and the last one Buta Karey Ramen or Ramen Babi Kari (32k). Please note that Buta (Pork) and Tori (Chicken) are only choices for people's preference, you can always choose either one when you order the Ramen. There is also a Salmon Ramen or Sake Ramen (38k), it was quite appealing. But it wasn't an option since it is more expensive than our available choices. So we moved on to the next pages. We got two ice cream, and we got to choose from Green Tea, Ogura, Durian, Vanila, Chocolate and Strawberry. We chose Ogura and Vanila. Normally, the price for one glass of ice cream is IDR 10 k. For drinks, we had Cold and Hot Ocha (8k). Since the photos attachment only allows 8 pictures, I think I will discuss some others next time. ;)
Extra Information: Other than choosing Pork or Chicken, you can also choose the type of the noodle (Straight/Curly), noodle texture (soft, medium, hard), spiciness level (not spicy, mild, medium, or hot), oiliness level and even the thickness of broth (light, medium or thick). We laughed when the kind waitress asked us all those questions and we eventually just asked for the normal level for all those choices. But yeah, the waitress was very attentive and patient to us. She was super nice as well. She even refilled our Ocha. We thought that the restaurant had this rule about only refilling drink if you order a drink for a person and we just ordered 2 glasses of ocha for the 4 of us (since we planned to hang around and drink on some other places after this). So thanks a lot! We really appreciate the care.
Okay, let's jump to the main stuff.
~ Cold & Hot Ocha ~
Price: IDR 8 k
Okay, the cold ocha was quite nice, and common of course. It was nothing special, but it was still good as our food's companion. ~ Tori Shoyu Ramen ~
Price: IDR 32 k
For this dish, we chose curly noodles just to see how it tasted. Well, apparently the curly noodles didn't make much different, or maybe we just couldn't know the difference. But it was still good. The noodles were nice, chewy-ish but perfect. The texture is quite similar to chinese noodles, but only thinner. In this noodles, you can find chicken fillet cutlets, boiled egg, and vegetable that I don't know how to call it in English nor Indonesian. I just know the name in Hokkien. The chicken was very good, it tasted delicious, and it was cooked very well. For the broth, it tasted quite weird for me. I didn't like the taste of the shoyu in the broth. It kinda ruined the Ramen. The boiled egg was only an okay, since it was slightly over-cooked because usually, the boiled egg in ramen is supposed to be soft boiled with the slightly-cooked yolk. ~ Tori Miso Ramen ~
Price: IDR 32 k
This Ramen is quite unique, since it has this Japanese tauco flavour, but it looked very similar with Tori Shoyu Ramen. I couldn't even tell the difference if the waitress didn't tell us about it. But apparently the taste was quite different. The waitress said that Miso is tauco in Japanese. I just knew that! Silly me. Well, the taste was quite good apparently. it had the lightest flavour compared to all 4 dishes, and it was better than the other two (Buta Ramen and Tori Shoyu Ramen). The broth was plain delicious (but please don't compare to those famous Ramen), and the chicken was delicious. With some chili that the waitress provided, we could adjust our spiciness level. I added more chili into this one, and it tasted nicer. Also, I could taste the tauco flavour, which was quite light. ~ Ogura Ice Cream ~
Price: IDR 10 k
This scoop of Ice Cream really made a good closing for our dinner. After ups and downs, we finally got to have this sweet red bean ice cream with nice smooth texture and light red bean aroma. The Ice cream was pretty sweet, but isn't ice cream supposed to be like that? That's partly why I love ice cream, I guess. If you come here, you should try the Ogura Ice Cream! Plain good as a sweet treat! Well, I should stop reviewing now. I will review some others next time, and well, to tell you the truth, I love Buta Karey Ramen the most. Buta Karey Ramen is for those who like it bold, flavorful and different. It tasted nice, and delicious, with great Pork slices! I love the pork! The pork had this fatty part which I enjoyed so much! (I should pay a good attention to my cholesterol )
Hakata Fukushuu might not be the best Ramen Restaurant, but people should give it a try. It has its own appeal I guess. The service was very good, the place is comfortable, and also, the prices are cheaper than other Ramen Restaurants. I guess, it needs a second chance from people! I'd be back again some other time, but maybe only for the Buta Karey Ramen and the Ice Cream! Well, what do you think people? If you wonder about the location, just go to Serpong and find the main road, Jalan Boulevard Serpong Raya. Go your way to SMS from McDonald's and after two to five minutes, you will find Hakata Fukushuu on the left.
Feel free to come and don't forget to tell us what do you think on OR!
See ya guys, and have a good day!
