This Japanese ramen shop (opened in April 2012) first catches your eye with pictures of samurai at the entrance.
Even the interior of the restaurant has pictures of samurai adorning the walls.
There are lanterns hanging from the ceiling and the column containing a piece of Japanese kimono fabric with intricate patterns, seems to be the centerpiece of the restaurant.
The soup base for their noodles come in three flavours – White (regular), Black (garlic) or Red (spicy).
Ramen with Kakuni (White) – The kakuni (braised pork belly) had slightly more meat than collagen in it.
Tsukemen (White) – This is the shop’s signature ramen and you can order up to 5 times the portion of ramen for the same price. I settled with 1x (120g) and was surprised that the chashu slices which came with the noodles had some collagen in it. Nice!
The dipping sauce was thick and flavourful and the soup base had traces of grounded dried fish in it, but it was saltier than the soup used for the ramen.
Verdict: Definitely one of the best places to satisfy your cravings for Japanese ramen in Singapore!
