Tonkotsu Kazan Ramen

I believe most would have already knew that Liang Court is like a Japanese nirvana, as most of the stores in there such as food, mall activities, etc are Japanese Thus I strongly conclude that for authentic Japanese food, Liang Court should never go wrong. Chanced upon a Japanese style noodle soup restaurant, Tonkotsu Kazan Ramen, which translates to Volcano Pork Ramen. Apparently, this was what intrigued me trying it!

Headed for an early dinner, and the usual lively Japanese greetings will really lift your mood up. Remembering entering several Japanese restaurants and having to hear those monotonous greetings? Tonkotsu Kazan Ramen spared your eyes from it, and you can literally feel the happy workers buzzing all around the shop to serve the diners.

Ideal place for lunch during the weekdays.

Hot Stone Japanese Rice with Pork and Kimchi ($10.00). If you have tried before the Korean bibimbap, this should not seem funny to you. Mix it up, and you can on the mushy rice, and flavorful sauce. Mix well!

As the highlight item of Tonkotsu Kazan Ramen, each table comes with a simple slip of instructions pasted on, guiding you how to prepare the Kazan Ramen (Volcano Noodles). How fun right?!

Kazan Shoyu ($18.00 for regular, $15.00 for small). Crew served the set in a big serving plate with the stone bowl, a bowl of rice, and the tonkotsu broth with special blended soy sauce paste. I had wanted to follow the steps and do it myself. But crew was faster than me, and I only got the chance to sit back and watched. Well, at least I won't be making a mess, and spoiling the awesome taste in the process? Haha.

Crew first poured the broth into the stone bowl, and covered it with a funnel-like. The resemblance of volcano comes when the you see strong amount of smoke "erupting" from the funnel! Rest assured no accompanied vibration.

Once funnel is raised, you will see how the inside of stone bowl is brewing. It is spilling but it will not flow on you because the big serving plate is there to hold the overflowing broth.

Although the set comes with a separate bowl of rice, we left it untouched and focus more on thick and flavorful ramen, and the sweet, delightful broth! Yummy!

If you are not a liker for shoyu flavored stuff, they have others such as curry or spicy miso. I believe either options will be equally palatable!

Ordered a plate of Yaki Gyoza ($5.00 for 6 pieces). My preferred type of gyoza is when the outer is fried till crisp, yet inside is soft but not mushy. Tonkotsu Kazan Ramen does it wonderfully! I love their gyoza!!

Prompt service, eager-working attitude, and lively greetings does make a difference when visiting a food outlet. I strongly encourage diners to try the volcano ramen, which I like it a lot. Despite limited seats in a cramped space, which is somewhat similar to Ramen Keisuke Tori King, Tonkotsu Kazan Ramen is having a queue when we left around 7 plus in the evening.
