It gets really cold at night in Dubai during winter. It is also during this time when my hot soup cravings are at its peak!
It was a cold weekday night and I'm still at work when I suddenly craved something hot. I initially thought of having wonton noodles, but later on had a huge craving for ramen on my way home. I immediately bugged Mark about my cravings, so he went ahead to Burjuman Centre and found Umami.
He ordered a ramen for us each and I arrived just in time when they were served. The Seafood Ramen had shrimps, squid, and fish on a shio broth; while the Beef Ramen had beef and tofu slices on soya broth. Both bowls also include a variety of veggies, plus the usual noodles, egg, narutomaki, and nori strips.
The soya broth had a more distinct flavor, I can also taste some garlic flavors when I bite into the beef slices. It had the right amount of saltiness and I can also taste a hint of sweetness, while the shio broth seemed a bit bland and oilier.
I also had a hard time eating the soup because the disposable ramen spoon had sharp edges, which kind of slices through my upper lip in every sip. :(
Any suggestions on where to have the best ramen in Dubai? Or do you have other cravings on cold winter nights? I'd love to know! Please write them in the comments section below. :D
