Annyeong haseyo JKTGOers!
What does it mean? It means how are you JKTGOers.
The JKTGO Team is a huge fan of Korean foods (and Korean dramas too LOL). So, we were very excited to try this Korean restaurant named Raffe Ramyeon House. It’s situated in the crowded part of Pluit, Muara Karang.
With the bright orange sign, you will easily find this Ramyeon House among other restaurants. This brand originally comes from Seoul, South Korea. The one that we’ve visited is their very first branch in Indonesia. They also import all of the ingredients from Korea so the quality and flavour will be maintained.
So, what is ramyeon? You can say that ramyeon is to Korea as Indomie is to Indonesia. It does look the same but don’t let appearances fool you because the texture is completely different. It’s softer, chewier and thicker than indomie. They like to add vegetables, kimchi, eggs and meat then they eat immediately from the pot or even the lid (to avoid mess!)
Now you know the difference right?
Budae Jjigae is one of the most popular dishes in Korea. It’s a huge pot of Korean stew and was made for sharing. We think it could easily feed 3-4 people. There’s a lot of sausages, spam, vegetables, tofu, mushroom, egg and ramyeon in the pot. Make sure you mix all the ingredients perfectly to get the very best taste out of it. It’s one of the things that we simply need on rainy days. We love it!
Did you know that Budae Jjigae was invented during the Korean war? Back then, it was very difficult for them to find decent food. So, they combined all the leftover from US army (sausages, ham) and poured it into a big boiling pot.
If you’re craving for Budae Jjigae and have no idea whom you want to share with, just order Mr. Johnson, a mini version of Budae Jjigae. It consists of ramyeon, vegetables, ham, sausages, and seaweed. We love how they seasoned the soup. It’s rich and tasty with a little hint of spiciness.
A perfect combination between marinated chicken, gochujang sauce and mozzarella cheese. Sweet yet spicy! It’s also served with rice. Everything taste way much better with cheese, right? #CheeseSquad #IVoteForCheese #CheeseForPresident
FYI, gochujang sauce is very popular too in Korea. It’s made from red chilli, glutinous rice, soybeans, salt and fermented over years. We usually ask the waiter for it when in Korean BBQ Restaurant. It works really well with grilled meat.
Rice Ball + Spam Rice Ball
The original rice ball is made with rice and seaweed. Don’t forget to dip it into the mayo sauce for extra deliciousness. The spam rice ball is the new invention from Raffe Ramyeon House. You will get the crispy texture from the spam bites. The spam rice ball is not bad but we prefer the original one. Simple at its best!
One portion consists of six rice balls, but they can do half-half (two flavours) upon request.
Fried Pork Dumplings + Steamed Chicken Dumplings
The fillings are seasoned very well. Dip it into the chili sauce and voila, it’s like heaven in your mouth.
They also mixed the dumplings for us, but usually it consists of 5 dumplings for one portion.
Our dining experience at Raffe Ramyeon House was wonderful! Foods are nice and affordable too. They also have a Value Meal Set for two. It includes 2 ramyeon, 1 rice ball, and 2 iced tea for 0nly IDR 99.000. Daebak!
It means, enjoy the foods!
