After the first time of eating ramen in New York, in 2016. Surely, my life changed completely. Because I never thought that soup with noodle, soft hard egg or poached egg, scallion and pork belly could be so tasty. But, it was at Momofuku. On the other hand, certainly exist others type of ramen using chicken, pork, seafood or even beef. That is to say, the chef who is making it, for sure creates its own, as at J.Ramen restaurant and others spots.

In fact, this dish was my first love with Japanese food. So on with others experience trying delicious and authentic ramen around the world. Such as in Tokyo at Tsuta Japanese Soba Noodle and Melbourne at Shujinko. Then arrived the time to eat it, in Saint Petersburg at J.Ramen, besides I knew it that I came here with a high expectation. Due to, the great places where I had eaten before.
Moreover, once I got in at J.ramen, a beautiful Russian style restaurant seemed to be. Besides, far away from a humble Japanese ramen shop with delicious flavours.
Samurai Gourmet at J.Ramen in Saint Petersburg
First of all, the food here, has high quality. Hence, it’s really tasty but with lack of authentic Japanese flavours. In addition, the dishes that I tried were gyozas, ramen and the avocado salad that was amazing.
Despite, I liked them, however, the dough was too thick. In other words, nothing similar to authentic Japanese gyozas that I have been trying, with a very thin dough and so yummy by the way. In short, these gyozas seemed to me, more like Russian dumplings such as pelmeni.
Likewise the gyozas, it had good taste. But I didn’t feel that I was eating traditional Japanese food. Although, it met with all requirements of a ramen. However, with lack of authentic Japanese flavours.
The best dish that I ate at J.Ramen. In fact this salad was something amazing, certainly I loved it, glorious taste. Besides, even feeling that it was real Japanese food.
As a result, it was at good dinner with tasty dishes, but with lack of traditional Japanese flavours. However, I recommend you, to come here and judge yourself. Perhaps, you will have a different opinion than I. And this is the beautiful of the food, enjoy your meal.
