Now Wait a minute it is not your ordinary traditional ramen but Shizusan has lived upto his true signature pop style inspired by his travels and created unique ones.
These off the beaten path ramen bowls have the all the traditional compositions but with a twist making them extra special.

why don't you hear it from the man himself - Kartik Ganesh.

I was invited for the pre tasting of the menu and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was one fun night with good company slurping on yummy Ramen.

10 Bowls of Goodness.

Look at these fun facts, quite amazed myself.

Refreshing Virgin Mojitos
I always love these at Shizusan.

Did you know according to the Ramen culture the louder you slurp the tastier is the Ramen.

Lets just slurping loudly without further delay, should we ? ;p

Kimchi Ramen
The Kimchi Ramen is made with rice noodles submerged in a broth made from gochujang stock and is topped with beans, roasted corn and kimchi. This was definitely one of my favourites, the broth was so good went down with an aghhhh appreciation and endless slurps.
Must Try !!

Shanghai Chilli Chicken Ramen

For those who enjoy the ‘Chindian’ fare, there’s the Shanghai Chilli Chicken Ramen – a bowlful of your favourite hakka noodles in a spicy garlicky chilli chicken broth topped with cubes of chicken, peppers, pokchoy and cilantro. I loved this too however it could have been more flavourful found it a bit bland for its ingredients missed the punch of the chilli. However this is the only ramen for the chicken lovers. Must Try again !!

Tom Yum Ramen
So colourful isn't it.
transformation from the hearty soup to pop ramen with a good kick from the bird eye chillies and tanginess from the kaffir lime. 

Seafood Ramen
Loaded with Squid, Jumbo Prawns, Tuna, Basa- Feast for the sea food lovers.

Miso and Shitake Ramen
This was good especially those who love the shitake mushrooms, the broth was flavourful and overall it was very comforting and nice. Must Try !

Peking Duck Ramen
For the Duck lovers soul. This one left everyone wanting for more.
Peking Duck Ramen is a ramen version of the famous Peking Duck from China and has a sweet & salty hoisin broth with egg noodles topped with crispy sliced Peking duck (of course), fried wonton noodles and spinach. 
Must try!!

Malaysian Laksa Ramen
This one is my most favourite, creamy and so flavourful.
It Reminded me of Burmese Khowsuey with a twist here and there.
All the ingredients in the bowl went so well together complimenting each other.
Comfort food at its best especially in Rainy season.
Must Must try!!

Laksa Ramen – a bowl of creamy laksa broth with al dente eggless noodles topped with mushrooms, mustard cress, tofu, red radish, crushed peanuts and crunchy fried noodles.

Bangkok Ramen
Thai Green Curry with rice noodles and tenderloin.
Some at the table really loved this.

Shanghai Ramen
This came with bamboo shoots and shitake mushrooms. (not my favourite exactly)

Classic Ramen
The Classic Ramen with udon noodles in a velvety, fatty, umami tonkotsu broth topped with sliced pork belly, crispy bacon bits and nori squares. (failed to impress)

Ended this feast with some desserts for the soul. I never can get enough of their chocolate mud pie - soul satisfying and so sinful.

It was indeed an amazing time with great company and some yummy food.

Thanks for the Shizusan Team and Carpe diem for an amazing evening and having me.

Its pouring outside and what a great time to slurp on these brothy noodles. So head over to Shizusan this weekend, that's where you might find me too.

Have a Great weekend !

Until we meet again.
Stay happy and Stay Cheerful!!
