This chic little ramen joint has fast become a popular destination for those who work or reside in the JLT area and noodle-lovers alike. Daikan Ramen opened its doors on the podium-level of cluster Y in February 2018. This has become Dubai branch of a German chain of Izakya bars and offers a “walk-in ramen bar”-style concept.
The entire team at the famous Daikan Ramen restaurant work towards serving a number of versions of the authentic dish, including their popular chicken paitan ramen. The restaurant also offers “tapas-style shareables”, which include beef ribs, chicken wings, sashimi, fried dumplings, and a lot more.
Right from the outside, diners can recognize it’s unique and mysterious, dark shaded-out windows, while inside it’s comfortable, minimalistic and industrial with hip-hop music playing in the background. Daiken Ramen is vaguely reminiscent of London’s hip Bone Daddies and the compact space consists of a few smaller size tables, one large table for sharing and a few stools at near the open kitchen. The menu neatly states all the dishes including six different bowls to slurp on, nibbles and for dessert there’s Nutella gyoza. Diners can tryout chicken karaage and deep-fried aubergine with miso vinaigrette. The fried chicken is well done and crispy and the accompanying sweet-chilli mayo makes for a great treat. Diners will relish the ramen, Chef’s Special and the veggie bowl. Both the size dishes are with huge portions and come steaming hot and creatively presented. The Chef’s Special is a chicken broth with a spicy miso base, noodles, chicken chashu, minced chicken, veal bacon and semi-boiled ajitama. Delicious and full of flavour, it has just the right amount of tangy ans spicy combination. The veggie variation is mouth-watering. Their bowls ranging between Dhs49 to Dhs65. Ramen is on the higher side but portions are generous.
Daikan Ramen is a great spot for foodies craving authentic ramen.
