Mega Ramen $25 with extra egg ($1.50)
Basically, this is the stuff of my dreams (like oh my god I cannot describe but I will try my best) - an abundance of my favourite tender, salty cha-su lining the edges (there's more hidden beneath too), and a big hunk of juicy pork spare rib with a layer of delicious fat and crisp, blistered skin that was mind-blowing flavoursome. I've had the pork spare rib ramen before and it was even better this time around and I thought, "it can't get any better than this" BUT I WAS WRONG YOU SEE, because whaaat, there was these new chunks of meat on a stick I had not yet met, and they were three pieces of the most perfect thickly-sliced, slightly caramelised, succulent, tasty roast pork I would ever encounter. I don't know why there were on a skewer but it was presumably to emphasise their majesty, and I don't know which variation of pork I like best now, because oh, all these choices! Anyway, all of this meaty smorgasbord arrives with the company of a lovely googie soft-boiled egg, atop of toothy ramen noodles in the most heart-warming thick, delicious, porky tonkotsu broth ever, and I'm gushing, oh my god I'm gushing. But I can't help it because, I mean... ramen, broth, pork, egg, pork, pork, pork... I have a new religion.

After the ramen experience, we decided to recoupe with some dessert so off we ritualistically went off to Meet Fresh again. It was a fabulous conclusion to our lunch and here, have another pretty picture.
