Domu -Orlando , Florida
Thank you to my buddy, Droolius, for inviting me to try the ramen at Domu. I’ve heard about this place from my friends.Everyone has raved about their Korean Fried Chicken so I was definitely excited about trying this new spot. A quick note, this place doesn’t take reservations so make sure you come early.

Droolius recommended ordering the WINGS6 EXTRA CRISPY WINGS COATED W/ KIMCHI BUTTER SAUCE (GLUTEN-FREE). This is most popular dish people orders. very crispy like Korean style.
Another item on their menu is the KRABBY PATTYFRIED SOFT SHELL CRAB WITH TORCHED TOMATO, MICRO GREENS, RADISH, YUZU SHICHIMI MAYO, which looked interesting to me since most traditional bao use meat as their main ingredient.
We also tried an item on the menu that had Korean BBQ corn as a base, which one of my favorites is sweet corn with cheese. The Domu version is called CHEEZUSCORN (CUT OFF THE COBB), KEWPIE MAYO, MELTED MOZZARELLA, JAPANESE SPICES, SCALLIONS, LIME (GLUTEN-FREE).
One of my friends, Emily, ordered the DOMU DONUNI WITH SPICY TUNA, IKURA, CHIVES, RADISH, NORI (GLUTEN-FREE OPTION). The rice bowl was mixed with high-end ingredients so it was a bit pricey.
There are 4 main in-house ramen bowls, each with its own specialty.
I ordered the TOKYO Ramen with SHOYU CHICKEN BROTH, FRIED CHICKEN THIGH, AJITAMA BRULEE, KIKURAGE, SEARED GARLIC CHIVES, INFUSED DUCK FAT, AND GARLIC SCALLION CONFIT. This was so good and the chicken was perfectly made.
My wife ordered the Spicy MISO (choice of butter or spicy) CHASHU, CORN, BEAN SPROUTS, SCALLIONS, KIKURAGE, AND KOMI OIL.
Droolius mentioned that his favorite is the CURRY ramen with CHICKEN BROTH, FRIED CHICKEN THIGH, JAPANESE BEECH MUSHROOMS, MENMA, THAI BASIL, SCALLIONS, THAI CHILI PASTE (MILD, MEDIUM, OR HOT).
