Ichiran Ramen

Take the chance to have a bowl of ramen at one of two Hong Kong-based outlets of the celebrated Japanese brand originating from Hakata, the birthplace of tonkotsu. Hong Kong's two locations stay true to the original, with semi-private seating facing the "service window". Wait for the tiny roll-up blind to be lifted by someone on the kitchen side, and a steaming hot bowl of ramen to materialise right in front of you. Ichiran's tonkotsu broth is so good it deserves to have poems dedicated to it: not too watery, not too thick (a common pitfall of tonkotsu elsewhere in the city), plus you get to pick (or leave out) any add-ons you prefer.


Hong Kong offers a staggering variety of cuisines from around the world: Thai, Indian, British, Italian and not least, Chinese, among many, many others. Prices also vary widely, depending on the dining experience you are looking for. Cheap, fast eats, and street food are a must for the traveller on the go, but take some time to indulge in some of the city's top-class dining, as well.
