Hearty broth and chewy noodles at Surugin Ramen House

Craving a creamy and rich soup to ward off the cool mountain air? You’ll love their tonkotsu broth, a soup boiled for hours to perfection. For something simple, the shoyu broth will satisfy your taste buds with its pleasant, straightforward taste. Their miso broth can also showcase an explosion of flavours in its thick texture. They even have Korean-style broth if you’re into spicy broths. There are also a handful of noodle variants to try out in the restaurant, so mix and match to your heart’s content!
And if you’re not in the mood for noodles, Surugin Ramen has side dishes that are great pairings to steaming hot rice. If you’re craving seafood, try out the delectable kamakura shrimp. You can also enjoy fried boneless chicken karaage. While they can be enjoyed with rice, they are also stellar partners to the restaurant’s ramen broth!
Enjoy Japanese cuisine inside a Japanese garden
If the authentic Japanese flavours aren’t enough to immerse you, Surugin Ramen House also sports a look that’s straight out of Japan. The restaurant itself follows the humble look of a small village ramen store made of wood. Hiragana and katakana banners with soup bowls beside the characters hang on the store’s roof to complete the look.
Al fresco is also an option when dining at Surugin Ramen House and is encouraged, too. To say that their garden is ambient is an understatement. The garden is verdant, thriving, and colourful. Across the main restaurant is a wooden hut, which is also furnished with Japanese wood blocks and carvings. Dine under the sun inside this hut while enjoying nature!
Surugin Ramen House hosts an experience that most ramen restaurants in the metro can only dream of. With their mastery of ramen broth, it’s no wonder that this restaurant is becoming more popular. Add to that the rustic charm and simplicity of the place and you might find yourself driving to Alfonso frequently!
