One of the things that I missed the most from my Japan holiday was the food, back home in Singapore it is very hard to find an authentic Japanese restaurant without leaving hole in your wallet. Most of the Japanese establishment that I visited during my travel was a humble place with delicious food, small and cozy. To my delight, I discover this little gem of Ramen Stall just across Bugis Junction at Rochor Road. The place is adorned with Japanese style hand painted murals with knicks knacks such as fans masks, windmills, that was hanged on a wooden blind. The decor itself felt very authentic, and to top it all the chef are indeed Japanese.
There were five different ramen, four is based on season (winter, autumn, spring, and summer), and the fifth will be "King" Ramen. Upon order you were given a form to fill where you can choose the kind of topping, level of soup and oil, and the noodle texture. It even has a section for those who dislike garnishes like spring onion, this is the perfect place for them. I ordered a King Ramen Special with all the toppings, and normal level for the soup, oil and noodle texture. It is absolutely delicious. The broth is rich, with tender pork meat and the flavoured egg is mouth watering. I ordered the Green Tea Cola out of curiosity, and the fizzy drinks goes perfectly with the rich broth. I ended the course with Yuzu sherbet, which taste a little bit tangy, which is refreshing after a meal with such rich flavours.
For those of you who are a big eater, this place offers you a Kaedama option (S$2) which means you can ask for extra noodles to satisfy your hunger.
Green Tea Cola S$3.00. It taste a bit like sprite mixed with a hint of fanta and green tea. Very refreshing for a humid weather.
Yuzy Sherbet S$2.50. With it's strong and tangy flavours, it is the perfect dessert to freshen up your taste bud after a rich course.
