Taiko Ramen 01

Exciting news for all ramen lovers, Taiko Ramen is now open at First World Plaza. Ramen is synonymous with Japan and has taken the global stage in recent years. To the uninitiated, ramen is just noodles with soup but to those of us who know better, ramen is a savory, a luxurious bowl of comfort food – a soup that is both filling and satisfying while also exhibiting variations that delights the casual diner over and over. The restaurant’s atmosphere sets the stage while food takes the spotlight as the guest becomes its audience. The restaurant’s lighting, music, artwork and space come together to create comfort yet highlight the culture of Japan for the diners.

They serve kotteri (rich) broth base.  Thick, rich and heavy kotteri broth is made from Tonkatsu which means “pork bones” together with fat and collagen that have been slow-simmered for 16 hours. Noodles are also imported all the way from Japan.
