Sunday is a time for leisure, with that in mind, I visited this newly opened Korean noodle place in Kemang. Ramyun is fairly similar to Japanese ramen and is a popular noodle soup meal in Korea particularly in South Korea. Sinsa Ramyun is a sister and halal/non-pork version of Jjigae House Muara Karang, a place that I haven’t had the chance to try. This yellow bright colored eatery is easy to spot, and has an even eye-catching interior full of wall murals and youth oriented surroundings. Beside noodles, you can also find some Korean street food like chicken wings, Tteokbokki (Korean rice cake) and dumplings. Let’s found out what this place is all about.
Chicken with Cheese (IDR 28.000): Fried chicken with sweet red sauce and melted cheese on top. The chicken was crunchy with really tasty cheese. A total comfort food.
Dak Galbi Ramyun (IDR 104.000): Large portion of dry noodle with stir fried marinated chicken in Gochujang (chili pepper paste) based sauce, cabbage, sweet potato, onions, scallions, perilla leaves and Tteok (rice cake), served in a hot plate. The noodle was kind of sticky and rubbery. The flavor of this dish was spicy and sweet with savory from the melted cheese. The Tteok was nice with chewable texture. Overall a fun dish.
Galbi Ramyun (IDR 74.000-Large): Noodle soup with grilled marinated shredded beef, seaweed and half boiled egg. I like the sweet and fragrant soup. The beef tasted like bulgogi, served in a cute little bucket-like bowl.
Kimchi Ramyun (IDR 54.000): Sweet sour and spicy dry ramyun with spicy shredded chicken, kimchi and half boiled egg. You can expect this to have all of kimchi flavor. The chicken was tender and nicely marinated too.
Melon Bing Soo (IDR 76.000): A pretty milk iced – Melon flavored dessert with Basil seeds, jelly cubes, topped with vanilla ice cream and chocolate wafer sticks. Loveee the soft fruity creamy flavor of bing soo. I couldn’t get enough of it!
Although the overall food was just mediocre for me, I had a fun time in Sinsa ramyun. It’s an alternative place for fast Korean street food and I think could be an appeal for younger crowds.
