It has been a long time since I last had ramen at Sho Rhy Ramen (Funan Mall). I was in VivoCity recently where I chanced upon AFURI 阿夫利 Ramen + Dumpling in the corner next to Shake Shack (VivoCity).
AFURI 阿夫利 Ramen + Dumpling’s specializes in yuzu ramen.
This is Kiwami Ramen [S$23.90] where you get all the best ingredients with either yuzu shio base or yuzu shoyu base.
The ramen is served on a wooden plate with the ingredients on a separate shallow plate and the ramen of your choice topped with fried garlic. The ingredients include kakuni, chashu, sliced chicken, seaweed, flavored egg and pickled bamboo.
I chose yuzu shio base which is light on the palate with lingering yuzu fragrance. The long thin ramen noodles works really well with the light broth for a refreshing dish.
Soft Shell Crab Bun [S$8.90] is such a novel idea, I have never had fried soft shell crab in a lotus bun before. The soft lotus bun and the crispy fried soft shell crab creates such an interesting contrast in texture.
There are also Spicy Chicken Bun [S$5.90] and Kakuni Bun [S$5.90] if you can’t or don’t like soft shell crab.
Homemade Japanese Pudding [S$4.90] is known as purin in Japan. This caramel custard pudding is a popular dessert in Japan, available in restaurants and convenience stores.
The the smooth creamy custard goes well with the slightly bitter caramel sauce. It is not overly rich but leaves you wanting more.
