Jalan Sunset Road Blok 4 - 5 No. 225X
A mans gotta do, what a mans gotta do.
Craving a bowl of proper ramen after multiple failed attempts I took matters into my own hands today and Go-Jek'ed 10 kilometers to Kuta (Hell spawn of evil satanic underworld) after reading that they had an Ikkousha there.
The time spent on clogged roads with a driver blasting the Spice Girls was all worth it when the bowl of Tonkotsu ramen came, oily, glistening, perfectly cooked egg yolk staring back from a half-submerged stance, and the promise of thick-noodles lying underneath.
It didn't disappoint. The noodles were great, slightly thicker which I love, and cooked to perfection. The pork literally offered no resistance. The egg, albeit not marinated, had perfect texture. The broth was deep, fatty, oily but not overpowering. A triumph in the back-alleys of Kuta. A reason to live.
