Chicken-Based Broth Lays Claim to Downtown at Daruma Ramen

A hot day walking around downtown Austin somehow left us crave ramen. It’s odd – sexy noodle soups seem to be good in any respect. With so many versions of ramen in Japan itself, it’s always interesting to see which types of prevailed in America; any time that I visit a restaurant touting variety, I am interested to see how it ends up. For the hot afternoon we were experiencing when we popped into Daruma, their foundation was perfect.

The interior of this restaurant is quite cozy, as is the case with most ramen shops. The pub chairs enabled diners, ourselves included, to watch the cooks constitute the dishes as orders were placed. Most frequently, we see pork bone bases for broths and iconic yellow flour noodles so this was a change of pace. They boast making their bases and stock each and every single day, and their menu focuses on the lightness of their broth.

Ordering is made easy by giving diners just a handful of alternatives. Four choices of ramen, really. There are few sides too, and the only dessert you’ll be able to get is some ice cream. What is that for creating your decisions easier? We eyed and purchased the Tatsuta-age ($5.50 – fried chicken thighs) to begin, knowing that a place centered on poultry broth need to know how to make a chicken appetizer. Did they? Absolutely. The bite-sized bits had the right amount of crunch to them and seasoning, not needing the thick dipping sauce they arrived with (though that was tasty too ). We would have ordered a second round of this had we not seen how large the ramen bowls were.

I went for the Shoyu ($10 – chicken-chashu, aji-tamago, bok choy, scallions, menma, naruto, sesame, and anchovy oil) and Duc for your Miso ($10 – miso foundation + chicken broth; shredded chicken breast, aji-tamago, bean sprouts, scallions, chili scents, coriander oil). Both came out hot but not the steaming hot they need to have been. The broth was visibly light for both so we were eager to see what flavors a chicken-based broth could impart on the rest of the entire dish. My chicken chashu was a fantastic change-up in the normal pork chashu; it seemed to be compressed moist chicken leg that was thickly sliced and salted. Because the inventory was less fatty than pork-based stocks, we now had to pay closer attention to the principles of this base that was slightly sweet, light-bodied, and surely built to express the other components per bowl. Overall, certainly a style befitting of those wanting their ramen without all of the fat!
