I struggled to decide whether a Ramen blog could post about a noodle dish (sans-broth), but came to the conclusion that this was worthy of a space here, and Tsukemen noodles are similar just with a dipping bowl on the side. Anyway.
Late night beers at LaRamona guided me here. I casually asked the chef if he knew of any great noodle spots in town and he immediately said "Fu Shou". I wrote it down, planned on visiting the day after and midway through the afternoon I found it a short scooter ride from my hotel. The owner was in the kitchen and immediately smiled at my RAMEN t-shirt. We ended up having a good long chat after what ended up being a great meal. I ordered the farm-raised Chicken Noodles and a Wonton Soup on the side. The home-made noodles were full of texture, great chew, great flavour and had been lightly tossed in soy/sesame seed oil. The chicken was also moist and delicious.
It was a perfect lunch, and i'd never imagine finding such quality noodles in a small storefront in Ubud.
