Ramen Santouka

Tokusen Toroniku Ramen at Ramen Santouka!

Touted as (probably) the best ramen in Singapore, this ramenya sure has a lot to live up to.

Ramen is something quite exquisite. While distinctively similar to instant noodles or bak chor mee of the Chinese, what truly sets it apart is the skill in the preparation of the broth, and the texture of the noodles which are often handmade.

Maybe there’s just something about doing things the Japanese way that reigns supreme. Their attention to detail could almost be termed unmatched.

Over at Ramen Santouka, the chefs spend hours on the broth to get it at just the right temperature, and flavour. So rich is the stock that I would have to say that hands down, it’s one of the best I’ve ever had.

Baikohken Ramen Restaurant

Baikohken Ramen Restaurant serves up generous ramen in grossly large amounts.

If there’s one thing I like about Singapore it’s got to be the food. Cliché but true, and I would even go so far as to say if you’re not passionate about food found locally, you’re truly missing out.

It’s common knowledge that there isn’t much to do around here, and food hunts are one of those past times that really get me all excited.

Amidst the busy preparations for my birthday, we managed to squeeze in time for some good food. Today’s review is about another ramen place. K has a weakness for Japanese food and really — don’t we all?

Okay so you’re not Singaporean until the mere thought of food gives you an adrenaline rush…

Ramen Keisuke Tonkotsu King, Orchid Hotel

What a beauty; I couldn't stop taking photos even whilst halfway through the bowl!

I am finally back with a post. It’s been a crazy past two weeks, I can’t even begin to describe.

Quick update: I am about to leave my job (yay!), so starting next week it’ll be back to the kitchen for this home girl. I cannot be more elated. Oh joy!

Today’s feature is about a restaurant my girlfriends and I visited earlier this week. This dinner was just what we needed to perk up a Monday to chase away those blues.

While it was pouring heavily outside, we were huddling comfortably in a little bustling eatery at Orchid Hotel — slurping down what I’d like to call “artisan Maggie mee”.

Oh yes, it’s time to say amen to ramen!
