Ikkudo Ichi Ramen, PIK

Having a bowl ramen at Ikkudo Ichi, was not in our plan at all when we visited Pantai Indah Kapuk (PIK). But then, since someone in our group was so hungry thus we decided to go there.

Beside soy sauce, chili sauce, chili powder, they provide also fresh garlic.

All the ramens here are served with chicken or pork chasiu, spring onions, mushrooms, sesame seed, and soft-boiled egg.

Ikkudo's Buta Kara - Rp. 41.800
Pork ramen with Ikkudo's special secret red sauce (spicy)

Buta Signature - Rp. 37.800
My choice was this signature pork ramen. Love the fine and tender pork chasiu with the thick savory garlicky broth. Unfortunately, I couldn't finish the entire bowl because I was still full of bubble tea from the Lab.

Buta Curry - Rp. 43.800
Pork ramen with special homemade curry.

All price subjected to 10% government tax and 3% service charge.
Current currency: 1 USD = Rp. 9.700
