Shine, Shine On … Stumbled across Hikaru in St Martins Centre by chance. Of course, I was foraging for food and this brief encounter proved to be a lucky break.
Hikaru specialise in Ramen, Donburi (or just plain old Don) and Sushi. And, it was quite busy while I was there so it’s obviously a popular choice for locals.
It’s a small venue but very sweet and the shop front on St Martins stands out. So, that possibly could mean I am becoming short-sighted.
Unable to find a Shoyu Chicken Ramen, I asked the charming server who told me it was possible and asked for $11.90. So, I sat and waited a very short time for my Ramen to be delivered.
It turned out to be a delightful bowl of food and the Shoyu broth was clear and perfectly seasoned. While the chicken was a real surprise as it was crunchy coated and so very tender. Delicious.
So, the noodles were al dente and there were loads. Loved that they topped the dish with spring onions, bean sprouts, corn, pickles and a Naruto.
Oh, and Hikaru means “Shine On”.
