Wabito Ramen (Wabitoya)

My ex-colleague invited me for lunch to a quite small Ramen place named Wabito. It's also called by the Japanese as Wabito-Ya. I found out that "Ya" means restaurant.

Most of the customers in this restaurants are Japanese expatriates.

My friend's favorite ramen is
Tonkotsu Ramen - Rp. 50.000
Special Tonkotsu soup Ramen topped with Kikurage (edible fungus that grow on dead trees), Wakegi (scallion), Chashu (Japanese simmered pork) and Nori (seaweed).

I like my choice of ramen which is
Shoyu Ramen - Rp. 48.000
Pork soup + special Shoyu sauce Ramen topped with Hourenso (steamed spinach), Chashu (Japanese simmered pork), Menma, Negi (Japanese green onion) and Nori (seaweed).

Gyoza (6pcs) - Rp. 25.000
thin-skinned dumplings filled with pork and vegetables

Karaage - Rp 28.000
Fried soy flavored chicken

Konnyaku Jelly - complimentary

All prices are subjected to 10% tax and 5.5% service charge
(currency 1 USD = Rp. 9.000)

Well, overall the food was delicious and I think I would love to come back to Wabito again for another ramen.
