"It's not the ramen academy," he warns. I wanted to make a ramen that is, forgive me the expression, franchouillardisé ”. With a long cooked and perfectly degreased broth, and full of little manufacturing secrets.
Homemade noodles and well-sourced products
Starting with the noodles, homemade, from a mixture of wheat and buckwheat flours. Because Stéphane Perraud, second to Guy Savoy and executive chef of Supu Ramen, is Breton. His pork is from the Ile-de-France region, his charcuterie comes from Lyon, the miso condiment contains Meaux mustard, the vegetables are fresh like dew and did not have to travel much… In short, there is only shiitake mushrooms which bring us back to Japan.
And yet ... it's very good. The broth is very tasty, well-bodied to counterbalance the boldness of the pork belly and the sabaudet of Lyon, this sausage of head and rind of pig ... The noodles, cut to a good diameter to stay al dente after forty seconds in boiling water, allow to be vacuumed - or slurped - as it should be. In winter, it is a real good comforting dish. From 13.80 to 17.80 euros depending on the ingredients: fish, chicken, pork, beef, vegetables… In the evening, it happens that a lobster falls into the pot and in this case, the addition suffers, but the rest of the time, you can get on the map and get away with it.
Starter, main course and dessert for less than 30 euros
Even if Guy Savoy, who knows like no other the art of (good) hospitality, has planned some nice little surprises to accompany his ramen. Delicates as it should be (from 5.80 to 10.80 euros) and "half-desserts" (4.80 euros) inspired by creations, in reduced models, that the chef serves in his gourmet restaurant. "I've always found it a shame that no dessert is ever served in ramen restaurants," sighs Guy Savoy.

And what about the place, except that it is magically located facing the Seine, valiantly decorated with a neon green lacquer on the floor by the artist Fabrice Hyber and embellished with numerous counters that allow you to eat without queuing. If it is better to book in the evening (at 01.43.25.45.94), it is useless for lunch: there is always room and the service operates continuously, seven days a week, from 11:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. weekend).
