With the monsoon season upon us, it is high time that we look for heart-warming cuisine that bodes well with the weather. In addition to local flavors like soto, Ramen is one of many international dishes that people just can’t seem to get enough too. This staple Japanese dish found its heart in the capital with so many varieties and selection (there are more than 50 restaurants serving ramen in Jakarta). We pick out the top 5 that upholds authenticity, and just down-right delicious!
Choose your favorite ramen by manually selecting the best noodle and condiments that works for you. Ikkudo is one of the most sought-after restaurants to have Ramen, apart from their other amazing menu, they serve authentic hokkaido ramen with Chinese-style wheat noodles. We pick the one at Pacific Place for its central location, but there are more Ikkudo Ichi spread throughout town and you can find it on their twitter account, for more info @ikkudoramen

Originated from Nagoya, one of Menya Sakura’s best menu is their Tonkotsu Tsukemen Special, topped with simmered bamboo shoots and delicious pork char-su. Their mazesoba is also an excellent choice if you want something else other than ramen. Menya Sakura’s strength is in the broth that’s heavily rich in flavors, a perfect choice for a rainy day.
