Ramen Lab @ Nagore Road, Georgetown, Penang.

More options for Ramen fans in town- Ramen Lab is the latest Ramen addition in Penang. The new Ramen joint can be found at Nagore Road, a short walk from New World Park (adjacent to Continental Bakery). Ramen Lab specializes in offering Tonkotsu Ramen, savory pork-based broth. Apart from Ramen, there are also some familiar Japanese delights on offer- Japanese Curry Rice, Gyoza, Takoyaki just to name a few. Price points are friendlier than those established ones though.

Butterfly Pea Ramen (Rm 23.80)

Rolled Meat Dry Ramen (Rm 17.80)

Takoyaki (Rm 12)

We had both Soup and Dry versions, the Butterfly Pea Ramen was merely a playful variant to their signature Tonkotsu Ramen. It was merely Pork-based broth with a playful touch of Butterfly Pea. It did not aid much except for the extra lively color. The broth was a tad too porky to our liking, it possessed bold porky notes that beyond our tolerance (both me and my partner in crime). We struggled to finish our share. The Rolled Meat Dry Ramen adopts the same concept as Tsukemen, a separate bowl of broth is served. But the broth was a little under seasoned as a dipping broth. Like-wise, both carried heavy pork flavors. For side, we had Takoyaki. We like the fact that they were generous with the Bonito flakes but the overall texture was a little monotonous. It would be better if they can introduce a little crunch to the Japanese ball-shaped snack.
