Scoop Cake ($6) – The soft & fluffy cake with fresh cream. I usually dislike cream on cakes but after trying this, I know that cream can be this good too.

We have visited here many times & the standard is still good. Though it may sound boring to be eating the same thing each time we visit but it’s always a delightful experience.

Santouka @ The Central


This is another of our favorite place for ramen.


He frequents this place even before we started dating. Knowing that I’m also a ramen fan, he introduced this place to me.



Mixed Soup Ramen (Awase- Aji) ($14) – Initially I find the broth here too salty. It is not until I saw the poster of this mixed soup ramen & tried it that changed my mind. The flavor is combination of salt, soy sauce & soybean. Interestingly the 3 blends very well together & gave a lighter flavor than their usual broth. This set consist of a bowl of ramen, rice, pickles & a small cup of tea. In the bowl of ramen are 2 slices of pork cheek. It is very very tender. Instruction from the poster is to put rice in soup after finish eating the noodles. You’ll need a huge & good appetite to finish the whole set.



Kara-Miso Ramen ($14.50) – He ordered this spicy soybean paste flavored ramen.

Though whenever we go back, I always ordered the same thing, I still crave for it from time to time. Sometimes just 1 thing is good enough to keep you going back.

Shin-Sapporo Ramen @ Suntec


His friends commented that this picture looks like somewhere in Japan. It’s a new establishment at Suntec City after the circle line started operation & we decided to try out this place.


Miso Ramen ($15) – I like their slightly thick curly noodles & this noodle is only served in their miso ramen. The broth is flavorful.


Hakata Tonkotsu Ramen ($15) – The broth is not bad too but it is served with straight noodles that’s slightly thinner than usual. I feel that the noodle is a little too soft & not so al dente.

It’s a small place with see through glass kitchen which allow you to see how the noodle is being made. This place is usually quite pack during peak hours.

Nantsuttei @ Parco Marina Bay

I rank this the best ramen I’ve tried so far. It’s always full house if not long queue. During our first visit, we queued for almost half an hour. Not sure if it’s just a craze or it continues.


Ramen ($12) – I ordered their basic ramen & added a flavored boiled egg ($1). My friends commented that it looks like ‘lor mee’. It’s actually black roast garlic oil floating on the top layer. Probably is what gave the broth the unique flavor. Not too salty or heavy & nice. The only down side is that the egg yolk is not runny.


Dragon Ramen ($15) – This ramen is the same as the basic ramen but with ground meat & red pepper. He likes his soup to be a little spicy & this suits him just well.


Gyoza ($6) – Juicy gyoza. It’s supposed to have rich flavor of garlic and meat but there’s not very strong garlic taste & I can accept it.

We went back a few times. The standard of their ramen had been consistent. Guess this will continue to be my favorite ramen until something better comes along.

Keisuke Tokyo @ Parco Marina Bay

 
My first thought before stepping in here was ‘high class prawn noodle soup??’. Was quite hesitant initially since we can easily get a very good bowl of prawn noodle soup out there for less than $10. We wanted to try its neighbour but there was a long queue & also since we tried that before, we decided to give here a try.


The interior is considered spacious as compared to the other ramen house we visited.


Prawn Stock Ramen Special ($19) – I ordered this. Wanted to taste the soup in its original flavor. Think they put lots of ingredients & use many hours boiling it. The soup tasted very robust. In the soup are dumplings but no prawns. The special comes with the extra side dish.



Prawn Stock Miso Ramen Special ($20) – There’s an added miso flavor to the soup. It tasted good as well. In comparison, this is more flavorful than the original prawn stock which is already robust.

 
The side dish that comes with the special. Tender chicken, an egg & preserved lettuce stems. Incase you think the chicken looks white & lack flavor, it is actually quite nice.

Though I still prefer the normal ramen in pork bone broth, the ramen here is something different for a change. As mentioned earlier, I felt that it’s on the pricier side & remained happy to have tried it once.
