Hong Kong is a city of Japanese food lovers. From sushi chains and omakase restaurants to dessert shops and izakayas, there are plenty of places to visit when you’re missing the taste of Japan. Despite all the varieties of Japanese food that Hong Kong has to offer, ramen still remains as one of the most popular options in the city.
Whether you’re craving a thick tonkotsu broth, a lighter shoyu base, or a creamier chicken ramen, we list out the best ramen restaurants in Hong Kong for the next time you’re seeking a bowl of ramen.
1. Maru De Sankaku
If you prefer fish soup, Zagin’s sister restaurant, Maru De Sankaku may be better suited for you. Located around the corner from Zagin’s Central branch, Maru still features the sister restaurant’s signature cappuccino foam broth, but replaces the chicken soup with a fragrant fish broth instead.
Keeping the menu short and simple, Maru also only serves three styles of ramen—a clear fish broth paired with two slices of crispy fish skin; and an eight-hour creamy white fish soup ramen, which can also be ordered as a tsukemen (dipping ramen) that is first come, first served. If you’re looking for a more stimulating dining experience, the tsukemen noodles are served above a layer of dry ice, creating a fog effect for a few moments. The noodles are unlike most tsukemen noodles in that they resemble the wider Chinese knife-cut noodles.
