Boyfriend has always wanted to try Butao so came here with him and 2 friends before he left last week~ We arrived at 6ish and waited for around 20minutes. Waiting is acceptable for me as long as the food is good lolI ordered the limited ramen of the month that night since I've tried some of the other choices already~ This limited ramen was said to have the soup blended by different miso from 5 places in Japan, but to be honest I could not really taste an especially rich miso tast...

Been here quite a few times and every time I have the Green King because it tastes the best. They have other special flavours such as Prawn, Curry etc but they are always sold out when I get there. On this visit, they had Sea Salt King which is limited to 30 bowls per day so I tried that.I was so lucky I did not have to queue that day. ★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★ Sea Salt King:The broth was really nice because it was not that salty despite being m...

Stopped in here for a quick bite after arriving in the city late one evening. It's a tiny place, so expect to share a table. I was surprised there wasn't any counter seating. I went alone so walked right in, but there must have been 20 people waiting outside at 10pm.  The broth was the best thing about this ramen. Very authentic. You don't get many noodles though, and the pork is sliced a little thin, so if you are hungry, order extra of both. Also a little disappointed that beer an...

I love Hakata style ramen with its rich, milky Tonkotsu broth and thin straight noodles, so I was delighted to discover Butao. Since the Central branch supposedly had longer queues, we headed straight to the Causeway Bay branch. It was not difficult to identify the shop's location since a short queue had already gathered even though we arrived at 10.45am, 15 minutes before opening time.We were among the first batch of customers to get seated. The shop space was tiny, with only 5 ...

Date of visit : 9 Mar 2013 (Sat) 5:15 pm No. of diners : 1 Average cost per head : $95 Food quality : 8.7/10 Environment : 8/10 Service : 7.8/10 Value-for-money : 8.3/10 Overall rating : 8.46/10 Judging from the queues, the popularity of ramen (Japanese noodle) is still on for the year. I didn’t try any local ones as I’s scared by the long queues everytime I walked pass those ramen shops. One Saturday afternoon when I’s strolling along ...

The Queue is so long here.. it extends to another part that is off this screen. sad . Condiments. This is very well-done. 好有街頭風味! .Butao Tonkotsu x Sakura Prawn Ramen - 蝦王 Ordered the soup with everything as normal, out came a sludge ! It was so viscous, the noodles actually stuck together and WITH the soup! huffy I know Kotteri ramen can be thick, but the noodles never get stuck together so you can't even slurp it! The Central store is ...

Previously I have tried the Green King, Black King and Red King which were all nice, but I really wanted to try the off menu specials such as the Prawn King and Curry King. This time they had the Prawn King but it was sold out, so I tried the Butao King. ★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★ Butao King:I was surprised the broth was not as strong as the other flavours but when it was served there was lots of pork collagen floating on top.

What do you look for in a bowl of ramen? Quality broth - yes. Not too thick. Sticks to the noodles enough to coat them well. Not too oily. Garlic just right. Noodles - yes. Thin and not over cooked. Pork - yes. And for me it has to be pork. Belly in this case. Very good flavour and tender. Possibly marinated? Additions - yes. Though to be honest I could have done with more mushrooms. The egg was a little too runny but with a good taste. Condiments - yes. Sta...

With the rising popularity of Japanese ramen, there ought to be many shops over the buzzling districts in Hong Kong. For instance, Butao Ramen is undeniably one of the leading ramen shops over town. Being one of the hottest ramen shops, a queue is undoubtedly necessary, especially when it is not a huge and spacious shop. There was a queue outside the shop already when we got there. The waiters gave us the paper for ordering and a menu during our wait, so our orders can be taken...

Finally, ButaO: chopstickchopstick To make sure I do justice to this ramen shop, I've waited till I've tried a bit more ramen before commenting on Buta O. It hadn't been easy to get a place here. To be more practical, I've targeted the Causeway Bay branch instead of the main shop in Central. I have practically skived work to try ButaO (shh... don't tell my boss! tongue) I can't believe my eyes - I've arrived at the CWB ButaO at about 11:45 a.m. and already there was a qu...
