New HK Ramen Restaurant Serving Yakitori by Night

Torimen, a restaurant that got its name from its hybrid menu of yakitori and ramen, opened over a month ago at 1-5 Elgin St., Soho, Central.

Torimen serves ramen for lunch, and both ramen and yakitori for dinner. A spokesperson for the business said, "Lunch is only for a limited amount of time, so we depend on our ramen to compete with other restaurants then. Then at night, the customers who loved the ramen can come back and have a slow-paced dinner with yakitori and drinks, along with a half-bowl of ramen to fill them up."

The restaurant's layout includes a counter accommodating customers dining alone, along with tables for large parties. Torimen is particularly proud of its Shrimp miso ramen for HK$88. To prepare, the cook matures home-made noodles of Japanese flour and soft water with shrimp miso, red miso, white miso and other ingredients for one week, then boils them in broth for eight hours or more. Customers can select noodle thickness, broth richness, spiciness and more.

The evening menu features uzuki egg (HK$28) eaten straight from the shell, tsukune (HK$38) chicken meatballs filled with cheese and cartilage, as well as other yakitori offerings and alcoholic beverages.

Business hours are from 12:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. (and until 1:00 a.m. on Thursdays through Saturdays). Torimen is closed on Sundays and holidays.
