If your idea of heaven is a hearty bowl of ramen noodles, take note. Recently discovered in a Tsim Sha Tsui alley is a second branch of Yokozuna. One of Hong Kong's first Japanese ramen outlets, Yokozuna opened in 1987 and still operates at its original site off Nathan Road in Yau Ma Tei. The new outlet, between Cameron and Granville Roads, can seat up to 60. 'When the first shop opened we wanted to introduce ramen to Hong Kong people,' says managing director Raymond Wong Man-keung. 'We wanted to expand but the economy wasn't good and we couldn't find a space we liked. Finally, we found the new location but it is different from the other shop because we designed it in the latest Tokyo ramen shop style.' Yokozuna creates a traditional, rich broth and the Kyushu ramen ($45) is perhaps one of the city's best, while the original ramen ($37) is available in four soup bases. The menu has expanded to include dishes such as chicken wing dumplings ($21), rice ball with tempura ($21) and a variation on ma-po tofu called the chilli bean curd bowl ($38). The Yokozuna Japanese Noodle Shop is at 13 Hau Fok Street, Tsim Sha Tsui, tel: 2723 8882.
