Wafu Shoyu Ramen (和风酱油拉面) & Mustard Chicken Platter (鸡肉照烧拼盘) @ RamenPlay 拉面玩家 (Nex)

Since my last visit, i have been having cravings to try the other ramen dishes at RamenPlay!

My mum and i were actually very satisfied even though it initially gave the impression that we should not expect too much from a breadtalk spinoff - whose main specialty is on pork floss bun and not noodles.

Wafu Shoyu Ramen
Not wanting to try the same old dish all over again, i decided on wafu shoyu ramen. The two pieces of circular meat appealed to the carnivore in me while the shoyu style of ramen cooking was appropriate as i was still suffering from cough and sore throat then.

This time, the egg had a more gooey yolk although it still needs to work harder towards perfection. No complaint on the thin slices of cha shu which were as delicious as they should be.

The noodles had a smooth lightness to them and complemented very well with the shoyu flavoured broth - supposedly a blend of fish stock and Japanese soy sauce simmered for over eight hours! Mom will definitely like this, guarantee chop!

Mustard Chicken Platter
If not for the picture on the menu, i will assume the title of this dish implies pure chicken in mustard cooked in various ways. Out of the three items, only one is mustard chicken. The other two are chicken takopachi balls and vegetable prawn rolls.

I was expecting mustard chicken similar to the somewhat similar yet epic one i had at Blue Mountain Cafe. It was okay but i could not help feeling disappointed. Surprisingly, the balls and rolls turned out to be really good with the insides filled with meat instead of flour for the former.

Looking like a variance from a typical Vietnamese roll, this RamenPlay version had sweet chilli dip that easily managed to turn a really healthy (and tasteless) dish into one i savoured with delight.
