EATANDTREATS LIST: Best Ramens in Jakarta!

Ramen... this food is really sensational and in a way, "powerful". Mention it in front of me and I'll probably crave for it just like that *fingers snap*. I just had a bowl of ramen earlier today and writing this post is such a pain in the stomach. In Jakarta, there are tons of Ramen houses in Jakarta, it's almost impossible to try them all, and I hope this post will help you on your Ramen houses surfing in Jakarta and please decide yourself on what you think is the best, some like the soup to be thick, some like it light. Some like the noodle to be thin and some like it curly. Ramen is really interesting!

Here is EATANDTREATS guide to Ramen Houses in Jakarta! 
(please remember that this post is NOT  a countdown and will be updated whenever I feel like there are deserving new names)

Jalan Ratu Kemuning Raya Blok A2 No. 82
Jakarta Barat
Price range: IDR 25k-60k
I once labeled this ramen as the best ramen in Jakarta and surprisingly, it still deserves to be labeled as that. If you love thin noodles, yummy thick broth and generous thick slices of Chasiu, then this one probably fits you really well.

Tonkotsu Ramen - IDR 45k

Tonkotsu Shisen Ramen - IDR 45k

Ikkudo Ichi
Rukan Crown Golf Blok D No. 2-3
Bukit Golf Mediterania, Pantai Indah Kapuk
Jakarta Utara
021 - 9662 8677
Price range: IDR 30k-70k
Their specialties is the "Buta Kara Ramen" with a glimpse of spicy red sauce, thick broth (costumized), custom noodles, juicy moist Chasiu and lovely Tamago! Somehow I like the curly noodle, it just adds up the interesting contrast.
Ikkudo's Buta Kara Ramen - IDR 45.8k


Hakata Ikkousha
Rukan Crown Golf
Bukit Golf Mediterania, Pantai Indah Kapuk
021 - 2903 3271
Price range: IDR 30k-70k
This one is also a strong contender, opening in 2011, it has been regular's favorite Ramen House to stop by and ends their disturbing ramen craving. One bowl of this Buta Special Ramen will contain an intense yet thick Pork broth, yummy Chasius, perfectly cooked Tamagos and definitely satisfaction on the last sip of the soup!

Sorry for this picture, I stole this from my Instagram! How sad. My photos are gone!!!

Santouka Hokkaido Ramen
Plaza Indonesia
5th fl.
Many rewarded this as one of the best ramens in Jakarta, as well as the most expensive. If you're more of a Hokkaido Ramen type, then this one might fit you. You can freely customize your ramen starting from the size (S-M-L), the broth, the flavor (saltiness) and the oil level of each portion. When you're dining in here, you'll get one jar of water as a free complimentary from the restaurant. The pork slices are quite thick, but still tender and juicy, and the broth is sort of milky.

Shio Charsiu Ramen - IDR 108k (large)


Shio Charsiu Ramen - IDR 78k (small)

Marutama Ramen
EX Entertainment Xenter Plaza Indonesia
2nd floor, Unit A20
Jl. M.H. Thamrin Kav. 28-30, Jakarta
021 - 316 0705
Price Range: IDR 35k-100k
Personally, this joint is another of my favorite Ramen houses in Jakarta. The broth is slightly lighter than the others mentioned above, but I love the consistency and the balance of the flavor! The thin noodles are well cooked, the pork cuts are adorable and they have Tamagos to die for! The middle part (yolk) is still runny and it's simply dreamy!

Tamago Ramen - IDR 66k


Zenbu
Plaza Indonesia 5th fl.
021 2992 3648
Price Range: IDR 30k-80k
Zenbu has adorable Ramens to select! The broth is slightly lighter and it has a hint of milk flavor which is surpisingly delicious! So far, Zenbu's ramens are only available in either beef or chicken topping and available in two sizes you can customizes depending on your liking... FYI, the meat cuts are generous :).

Beef Ramen - IDR 55k (large)

Ichidaigen Ramen -> HALAL!
Jalan Radio Dalam Raya No. 20
Kebayoran Baru, Jakarta Selatan
Price Range: IDR 25k-70k
HAPPY NEWS for Ramen lovers, especially to my moslem friends, because there is actually a ramen outlet in Radio Dalam which claims to be 100% HALAL! That means they don't use and serve pork or spam products in the meal. We all know that pork broth is the most delicious, Ichidaigen uses beef bones to form the broth and surprisingly, it tastes good! The broth is sort of milky and less oily.

Shoyu Ramen - IDR 65k

Ten Ten Tempura House
Plaza Indonesia, Basement Level Unit 16-17
021 - 751 2369
Price Range: 30k-100k
Even though Ten Ten is best known for their lovely tempuras, but don't mistaken their ramens! Ten Ten's ramens are specialties in beef, chicken or seafood for both broth and topping. They haven't served pork ramens here.

Spicy Seafood Ramen - IDR 55k

Gokana Teppan
Summarecon Mal Serpong 3rd Level
Gading Serpong, Tangerang
Price Range: IDR 20k-50k
Overall, Gokana Teppan's ramens have the lightest broth and they're the most affordable overall, but that doesn't necessarily made it as the worst, I personally like my ramen to have that thick pork broth, but it's okay to try out things, isn't it?. If you want to have a good ramen with a very affordable price, then this one you might consider going :).

or you might as well try these ramen houses in Jakarta. Some I've tried before but I didn't manage to take photos of because either I forgot to bring my camera or back when I wasn't taking photos of my food and decided to blog about it ;).
