Japanese master ramen chef cooking stock



BANKARA - A colloquial term once used in Japan to describe an individual's unique and exceptional style. That is us.

This Ramen Bankara journey of five senses: taste, smell, touch, sight and sound, is offered to every customer, wrapped in the soul of "First Slurp" philosophy. Each slurp of Ramen Bankara's unfolds in a taste burst, creating a rare celestial experience. The pause between bites initiates a gradual desire for the next bite. This feat of pleasure at new levels is a direct result of Mr Kusano's relentless pursuit for ramen perfection over the decades.

Ramen Bankara's perfect noodles are a result of diligence and precision during production in areas like constant humidity and temperature. Ramen Bankara created distinctive Tokyo style ramen using the finest ingredients and exact cooking techniques. Each ramen style has its own unique broth and is accompanied by different noodle types, varying in texture and thickness, harmonizing the taste reflecting the true meaning behind "First Slurp" philosophy.



Ramen Bankara, as the name suggests, is our signature Tokyo style dish. The hybrid ramen are complemented with a slightly salty taste with a hint of sweetness. The exquisite pork bone broth is infused with uniquely refined shoyu (soy sauce). This sweet and savory signature creation is best served with Kakuni (braised pork belly).



If you prefer tangy savory tastes, this ramen is ideally suited to your tastes. Rich seafood is added to create a unique blend of pork broth. The regular version is quite light on the palate. Food lovers and adventurers are seen to opt for the spicy version for that extra kick. So, what is going to be your preference?



Springy Hakata style noodles served in a rich and creamy broth that is made from boiling pork bone over high heat for many hours. The slow cook technique breaks down the collagen, marrow and fat, giving the broth a flavourful pork and buttery texture.



On warm summer evenings in Japan, it is the Tsukemen that invigorates with cool springy noodles. The rich and peppery broth is served in a separate bowl, meant for you to dip your noodles before you slurp it down. A unique tradition for a unique dish.
