The popular Hakata-style ramen Uma Uma from Fukuoka is opening its second branch in Sukhumvit Soi 39 Apr 25.
Fans of this Hakata-style tonkotsu broth ramen will find the place retaining its old atmosphere of a ramen-slash-izakaya joint with some modern touches, from a glass-fronted kitchen counter to the cozy curtain-partitioned seating areas.
Try their original Uma Uma ramen, a Hakata-style tonkotsu soup enriched with collagen and generously portioned chashu pork and shiitake mushrooms. Izakaya aficionados can opt for their crispy torikawa (grilled chicken skin) as well as assorted skewers featuring chicken skin, meat, pork belly, meatballs, and bacon-wrapped enoki mushrooms.
With roots back to 1953, the owner of this ramen joint began his business with a humble ramen cart, opening with the name Sanmaro before changing after his son’s name Umaro. After adopting its new name, the place has seamlessly blended classic izakaya dishes to its menu.
Uma Uma. Sukhumvit Soi 39. Open daily 11am-11pm.
