Hong Kong Ramen #1

Although I know much less about ramen in HK then I do about ramen in Japan, I have started to go to ramen shops frequently enough on my trips to HK over the last few years to see that:

1 - a small ramen culture is starting to appear (in a city that is well-known for food and devotion to it)
2 - more ramen shops are appearing, some due to the Japanese influence (every time I go to HK I swear I see more Japanese signage and shops)
3 - the quality of them appears to be increasing

As of today I have been to:

Yokozuna (Mongkok)
Santouka (TST)
Kakurega
Butao (Causeway Bay)
Hide-Chan
several places in the Sheung Wan area
Ippudo
Ippei-an

Kakurega is the best so far.
