Ichiran 一蘭 – Hong Kong

During the summer, Ichiran opened in Hong Kong with much enthusiasm from the public.  Since Ichiran is opened 24 hours.. there were lineups from 7am-5am!! Crazy! The lineups were on average 3-4 hours during peak hours!!!!

Obviously, I had to try HK’s Ichiran since I’ve been to the one in Osaka. I went on a Friday at 5:45pm and only had to wait 30 minutes!  By the time I left, the line was around 2 hours!

Basically, this panel is just a decoration because unlike Osaka, the staff in HK shows the customers to their seats.

 solitude- style dining…

a bit different from Japan.. the curtain wasn’t closed until the ramen was delivered.. so you can hear and see what’s going on behind seating stalls….. kinda ruins the whole solitary dining atmosphere…

tofu appetizer and dessert… this is only available in Hong Kong.  2 tofu puddings come with each order.

you’re supposed to eat the first pudding as is…. it’s really thick and has a strong sesame taste…

then you eat the ramen… which was extremely oily, compared to Japan…

and then have the last pudding, in which you pour the syrup… pretty good.. but for 20HKD… kinda expensive!

FAIM? OUI OUI!!
