Nomstar Ramen - Miso Ramen

Nomstar Ramen – 6 Feb 2016

It may have been a hot day but slurping down a big bowl of delicious ramen with miso flavoured broth was a great way to enjoy lunch. The miso has a strong distinctive flavour that permeates the broth and is contrasted against the peppery cabbage, rich bursts of juicy sweet corn, the slightly fatty flavour of the chasu pork, the rich gooey slightly runny egg yolk, crunchy bean sprouts and seaweed. Before the ramen, I enjoyed the soft tender parcels of pork gyoza which present a lovely soothing texture before your tastebuds are woken up by the tones of ginger and soft pork filling. I was also presented with a sample of a new dish to the menu, karaage chicken, which happens to also be a personal favourite. The batter is very light and crunchy, encasing juicy tender chicken enjoyed with spicy sauce, housemade mayo, and shredded cabbage. Way too full, definitely no room for dessert, very satisfied.


Nomstar Ramen - #2 Black Ramen

Nomstar Ramen – 15 Nov 2015

Nom nom nom. Yep, a visit here will have you slurping on delicious ramen. Newly opened there are 3 ramen varieties on offer and I chose the black version which is soy sauce based. A big bowl of tasty thin noodles is to be enjoyed with a broth offering depth of flavour and while a little intense, the broccoli and pickled bean sprouts help take the edge off, the latter, refreshing the palette. Tender pork adds meatiness to the meal and richness via the fatty part which is delicious. I also got the chasu pork bun and it was amazing! I loved the fatty pork giving a burst of flavour while the blend of spices deliver the flavour punch. To finish off, smooth black sesame ice cream was thoroughly enjoyed, cooling the mouth and contrasting in texture with the crunch of the black sesame seeds.


Theobroma Chocolate Lounge - Waffles With Ice Cream

Theobroma Chocolate Lounge – 23 May 2014

Second time visit to Theobroma Chocolate Lounge, but this time for the food. I ordered waffles with ice cream and also a hot chocolate for breakfast. The waffles were delicious, contained ample delicious thick melted chocolate, and was topped off with the scoops of vanilla ice cream. I certainly brought a little bit of food envy around the table and it tasted as good as it looked. Very indulgent. I also had a hot chocolate made with milk chocolate and it was delicious. Not too milky or too chocolatey, just right. A great start to the day at Theobroma.
