Ramen Village AEON Mall, BSD - Tangerang

Have you already heard about the newly opened mall in town, AEON Mall?
Located in BSD City, Tangerang, AEON Mall brings us not only a variety of Japanese related snacks and eateries, but also numerous brand new shops and snacks to town ever since their opening at the end of May 2015!

Some of you might be wondering, why is it associated with so many Japanese stuffs? AEON Mall is actually a shopping mall originated from Japan. Thus, resulting in bringing in lots of stores from Japan as well. One of the main attractions of this mall is located at the outdoor area, the illuminated garden. The lights will start lighting up from 6PM onwards and it is definitely a sight not to be missed.

One of the main reasons why we came here was to try out their famous Sushi and Sashimi sets which are sold at the Sushi & Bento Counter in AEON Market on their Ground Floor. Why are we so intrigued in trying out these sushi sets here? Well, because the sushi and sashimi sets here are sold at a very decent and cheap price, and they are also quite fresh as well. There are also a lot of varieties to choose from the counters!

Sushi Set (Back) & Sashimi Set (Front) - IDR 59K each


The sushi and sashimi sets are each sold respectively at IDR 59K. And with such generous portions served on the sets, what more could you ask for? There were several choices of sets available, but we went for the biggest one as it looked the most tempting out of all the sets there.
You can also buy the sushi themselves per piece, and each pieces are sold at around the price of IDR 3K - IDR 6K. They're surprisingly cheap right?! But each person may only buy 20 pieces at most per purchase, so if you're planning to grab a lot, I would suggest you to go for the sushi sets instead as the queue is usually very crowded.
And if you went for the sushi sets, you can pay for your purchase in any counters within the AEON Market area! Definitely choose the less crowded ones.

N.B. "Chopsticks" and "Shoyu" are sold separately and can be purchased at any cashier counters within the area.
For chopsticks, are charged IDR 500 per pair.
For shoyu, there are 3 choices available:
3ml at IDR 700
5ml at IDR 1K
10ml at IDR 1.8K

Next up, we went for dinner at one of the ramen outlets in Ramen Village, a district area that consists of seven specialty noodle restaurants located on the Mezzonet Floor of the 3rd Floor. Every single one of these restaurants was so packed with customers, and we had a hard time on choosing which one was suitable for us. We went ahead with the choice of Ramen Nagi - Universal Noodle. This restaurant has been well known for winning lots of awards in various countries.

From Left to Right; Butao Ramen (54k), Additional Ramen (Free), Ebio Ramen (58k), Genkio Ramen (58k), Chasiu (55k), Sanshoo Ramen (58k)

You can choose the noodle's texture by yourselves, whether you want it thin, thick, or even with udon or chasoba. There are also 3 types of soups available, light, standard, and creamy. And also 4 levels of spiciness are available. All customizable to your own personal likings.
Are you a big eater? If yes, then there's another perk of eating here! For every purchase of the ramen, you are entitled to FREE RAMEN REFILLS.
Yes, you've read it right, you can refill your ramen for free if you still have some soup left in your bowl after you ran out of noodles. They are also very generous with the additional portion of the ramen! (refer to the top middle photo for the additional ramen)

As for the taste, I quite like it, better than some but still not the best one that I have ever tasted. There are lots of varieties available here. The texture of the noodles was very fine, they don't break easily and still maintain their chewiness. Each of the different menus have their own distinctive flavors, and each of them are very fragrant in their own way.
My personal favorites are the Butao Ramen (Pork) and Sanshoo Ramen (Chinese Spices).
If you prefer an old-school original ramen, I would suggest you to go for the Butao Ramen, the flavors are not modified with additional ingredients and maintain the fragrance of the pork broth.

The service was just okay and not too shabby. They are pretty quick but quite sloppy in a way. They served our Sanshoo Ramen without even putting in the Chasiu meat pieces, we had to double check what was served on our table with what was presented in the menu before we called the waiter to fix our order as soon as possible. Please do double check your orders before digging in, you wouldn't want to lose the ingredients that are supposed to be in the ramen you ordered, would you?
But it was still understandable, since the restaurant was always so packed and the staffs must have been tired as well. Thank you for your hard work, keep on doing your best! お疲れ様でした! :)
