(Griffenfeldsgade 28, 2200 København N)
Mikkeller cannot sit still for a goddamn second. High on the fluid skies of creating a million different craft beers, not to mention opening a taco-spot in Bangkok??? I had to go try the hipsters high heaven temple of Japanese kitsch in Denmark this past summer.
It's a small place on a corner in Nørrebro, flushed with the token Japanese ticket machine to order from. All this smells wannabee. Well, the proof is in the pudding as they say.
We ordered the Yuzu Shio Ramen.
1. The noodles were house-made, but who cares when you bloody overcook them? Schoolboy error.
2. The pork was largely forgettable.
3. The broth was basically tasteless and boring.
4. The eggs were so over-cooked it literally should be forced Gulag for 10 years for doing this to a chickens potential family member. Unforgivable. I know the TRADITIONAL places in Japan do this, but its something most people over-look if all the other elements are excellent, but nobody in their right mind prefers a hard-boiled egg over a 6 min oozing yolk that adds richness and flavour to the noodles and broth.
Hang the chef. He is a disgrace.
