Hokkaido Ramen @ Gantetsu, Eat Paradise One Utama

Located right next to Menya Musashi is Gantetsu supposedly a Ramen Champion in Sapporo for 3 consecutive years serving Hokkaido Style Ramen. Unlike Tonkotsu Ramen, Hokkaido Ramen's broth is Miso Based and usually includes a knob of butter and sweet corn.

Hokkaido Ramen is served with a dollop of Butter and Sweet Corn which gives the soup a richer flavor than the regular Miso Based Ramen

I liked the Cha Shu in Gantetsu which is a little leaner and much bigger. The Soup Base is not as oily as Menya's Tonkotsu and the addition of Ginger help give the soup a richer flavor. However the Noodles are definitely not as springy as Menya's.

Chicken Karaage
Tender pieces of Chicken Thigh Meat that is seasoned with imported Japanese Spices. It was actually pretty tasty although not the best Karaage I've had.

Much better than Menya's soggy Gyozas.

After trying both Gantetsu and Menya I must admit I prefer Menya's Ramen better than Gantetsu. Menya's Noodles have a much better texture than Gantetsu's.
