I went to Mandarine Gallery last night and saw this place called Ippudo Sg, another good place for Ramen's.

I ordered Shiromaru Classic $15 and Akamaru Modern $15 star springy bites of poker-straight noodles. Both bowls boast a favourful broth that is robust yet light on the palate. Which means you can slurp every drop without fear of heartburn. Must Try the Pork Bun. :thumb: :thumb:

Enjoy.. :thumb:

Ippudo, Santouka and Marutama are all pretty good.

Santouka has a new outlet near Robinson.

Marutama is also in the Central on the 3rd floor. Char siew is very good.

Among the three, i prefer Ippudo as the nooble is more fine and soup has very good flavour. But the char siew is not as good as

the other 2 outlets.

I swear by Ippudo! :thumb:

Fell in love with its ramen when I was in Japan.

dont try the latest season ramen from Ippudo..the

"ma po "tofu thingy.

If i were to give the usual ramen there 8/10, the latest is merely a 5/10.

Just stick to the usual ramen there.

I didn't know they have ma po tofu version now.

Haven't been there in a while actually.

Wonder if the Japanese staff are still there.

Tried Ippudo's ramen at Mandarin Gallery that day - the tonkatsu broth is so amazing. The best soup I have ever had lol. Wouldn't mind having that everyday! The noodles had an alright texture too - springy. not soggy.

Plus, the waiter who attended to us was very cute hahaha.

Overall experience was very good :)

Not too long ago, a friend brought me to this place with really good ramen, comparable to Santouka and Marutama.

It's called Tonkotsu King, located in Orchid Hotel, which is near Tanjong Pagar MRT. It's a really small cosy outlet and the queue was really LONG. But do not be daunted by the long queue, it actually moves pretty fast. Your orders are taken while you are queueing outside, and by the time you get inside, your meal will be served to you in less than 5 minutes.

The broth is really flavourful, and you get to choose from 3 different bases: black, white and red. I had the black base broth and there were hints of garlic and soy sauce carried by the rich pork bone broth. Noodles were really thin and springy. For those who don't like their noodles al dente, you can let the chefs know by choosing your "doneness" for your noodles on the order form. Grinding some toasted sesame seeds to top your ramen is optional, but I highly recommend you do it, it really enhances the flavour and the experience you get when eating the ramen.

Do give this awesome ramen a try, it's worth every cent!

Personally i tried Ippudo @ Mandarin gallery before. Had the one with the black soup which is one of their signature. Noodles are really good as for the soup base i find it kinda of oily.. Haha you may call me weird but i kinda of like Ajisen ramen more among all those branded ramen shops i tried in Singapore .

Ippudo is seriously overrated. There's one near my house and the broth is just a salt overload.

 

Just came back from japan and had the best bowls at the Tokyo Ramen Street.

 

I think tampopo at Liang Court is pretty decent though.

I respond very well to a strong soup base, so Tori King Keisuke is my jam, although I cannot finish the soup. Way too much MSG for my tongue.

 

Yeah. Their soup is too high level of MSG, but their freeflow bean spout is fantastic.!

Marutama? Along Killiney road and some other branches

 

Chicken broth instead of pork broth so you don't get that porkish smell in the soup.

 

The ramen is too much, always feel super full after a bowl.

 

Wish they had  a half bowl or something.

:) of course you can't compare with Japan :)

 

But yeah, Ippudo in Singapore is a bit overrated... and expensive for the handful amount of ramen you get in the bowl. And the queue is insane during lunch time at Mandarin Gallery.

 

We prefer Santouka at Cuppage Terrace. Price wise it's about the same but their pork cheeks are yummy (and I'm someone who doesn't like fatty stuff) and you get more ramen for your buck.

 

I had the stupid idea to try Ajisen at Tampines Mall the other day.... Soup not good, ramen so-so. And I think I got food poisoning from there cuz I got sick almost all weekend....

I often go to Musashi Ramen at Ion or Raffles City. Delicious. When I am hungry, I would order their tsukemen (dipping ramen) where you can order up to 5x the amount of noodles at no extra charge. Remember to order the extra noodles at the beginning because they don't allow top-up ordering.

If someone loved trying new ramen and needs company, drop a post here, and we can go try together.

I just went to Menya Musashi at Bugis Junction (basement) and had the dry tom yam ramen... it was delicious. Will go back to try their other items!

Tried Ikkousha Hakata Ramen twice and i absolutely love it. Same like most, they've got free flow hard boiled eggs.

Soup base wise, it's great as well. The amount of MSG they put in their soup is not as much as compared to most.

 

And i like the way customers place their order. 

At every seat, there is a seat number. So when you write your order on the order slip, you include in your seat number and they will serve it right to you. 

 

Save the hassle of wondering who ordered what and accidentally taking your friend's order.

Azimuth, Ippudo is nice? Why I dun feel so for Ippudo ramen in KL Avenue K? ><

 

I like Goku Raku Ramen though....

 

Haha. I personally like it. Not sure why the difference. It could be different taste buds or different chefs. Heh.

My preference:

 

1. Miharu Ramen ( at Gallery Hotel )

2. Santoka ( at Central, Nice view at evening especially from 5:30 to 7:00 / shop house behind Center point cos near my office. )

3. Tonkichi ( at Scott Isetan )

4. In Japan, you could enjoy Ramen anywhere.

5. Ippudo ( Poor service standard )

Tonkichi is good for ramen meh? I have never tried their ramen. I thought their specialty is fried katsu only.

Ippudo - I feel its nice, probably cuz Japan have its branch as well.

 

Recently fell in love with Osaka Ohsho... Their Omelette Rice is damn nice... some stores like at Vivocity have teriyaki chicken and chicken cutlet topping as well... Oishii! =)
