Yokozuna is located right off Nathan Road in the district of Yau Ma Tei, close to the lovely, hilly King’s Park nature area, full of hiking trails, outdoor recreational facilities and lush forest, next door to 7-ELEVEN.
Make sure to get a number, as there will be a wait no matter what day or time you come! This is not a place to linger, as it is common courtesy to move along when others are waiting, and they always will be here. Expect to share a small counter or table with strangers who are all drawn here for one thing: ramen noodles. The open kitchen and Japanese starkness adds to the ambience, but everyone comes here for the ramen.
You can request the spiciness level to your taste, keeping in mind that you can add the seasonings at your table (most people do, and for good reason – it’s delicious!). They pride themselves in healthy cooking, so their ramen is not loaded with oil and salt. The service is polite and attentive, if not a bit on the slow side (expect to wait about 15 minutes for your food after ordering) because the place is so busy.
Yokozuna specializes in ramen noodles, while also offering other sides and dishes. Their pan friend dumplings are particularly good and crisp. Favourite noodle dishes include their curry beef ramen, and their original pork ramen (both in soup). A must-try is their seasoned hard-boiled eggs, which for a few HKD come served atop the ramen. According to locals, they are among the best you can get anywhere.
The number 7 bus goes right by on Nathan Road, or you can walk about 15 minutes from the Star Ferry terminal in TST.
Expect to spend around HK$40 for a bowl of ramen. One is enough for most people!
