Hinotori Ramen 火の鳥 - (Hong Kong)

  It’s hard to fathom that within the youngsters oriented Dragon Centre alone in Sham Shui Po,  there are actually 3 ramen shops all operated by trained Japanese Ramen chefs.   Hinotori origins from Tokyo in Japan,  it specialises in Chicken Broth Ramen just like the also Japanese imported Torihana.   The quality was surprisingly great for a food court setting,  it is definitely worth a detour.

Currently the Japanese chef is only offering the more basic Chicken Broth versions -
Starting a $58,  this was performing at a level at shops being 50-100% more expensive.

Tatsuda-Age fried Chicken -
$15 for 3 pieces.  This was cooked from fresh I noticed and really tasty and moist inside, but not oily externally.  I asked for some Mayonnaise dip or Yakisoba dark sauce with it.   ~  8/10

Chicken Ramen  鶏炊き ラーメン – $58
Behind the soul of the bowl,  is their thick but light chicken broth that is balanced with a vegetables broth.  ~  8/10

Noodles are of the Medium width Curly Noodles  中太ちじれ麺 - 
Cooked al dente well and the presentation is neat..

Rolled Chicken Chasyu was tender and tasty, 
but that isn’t the main focus here. On the right,  a chicken tsukune is mixed with soft bone cartilages and yuzu which was decadent and melts in the mouth!!  Unfortunately this chicken ball cannot be ordered separately, but just coming for this alone is enough an enticement to return back soon.
