try Ramen Ramen Ramen at Rall Mall near Bukit Timah.
I find the noodles pretty good and the soup is very rich.

Pricing $7.90-8.90

i tried a couple of new ramen shops in a week.
here's the low dwn of most ramen shops in singapore tt ive tried.

personally i think the noodles they serve in ajisen sucks. they taste like spagetti. wtf?! price? compared to the shops below.. ill recommend u eat @ other places or save your money.

ichibantei @ robinson quey. value for money definately. u can get a bowl of ramen for 9 bucks only. but trust me. it isnt as filling as the rest of the ramen ive tried. u could however top up a little for the set meal which i think is very value for money. noodles n soup's average not bad. u pay for wat u get. last time was here, they served super tenten ramen (chilli bean soup) and tonkotsu (white pork bone soup). +1 for them cos they serve free kimchi appetitisers. chashu here isnt fatty 10 per bwl!!

ohsho @ cuppage plaza has nice gyoza. i havent tried their chahan (fried rice ya?). noodles here are not too bad but i'm sure there r better ones like miharu. soup is a little on the thin side but they come with lots of other ingredients in soup. 1 bowl can make u full. think here is more for the japanese zi-char. i like better the chashu here mainly cos it's damn fatty but too bad it's kinda dry and not really fresh. avg 11 per bowl.

miharu @ gallery hotel best imo of all in this post. noodles spongy jus nice. soup isnt tt salty and rather thick. ingredients r a too little in the bowl tho and for tt the price is slightly more ex than other ramen shops. the chashu here is better than ichiban. come here for the soup n noodles. avg 12 per bowl

Beppu Menkan not as good as the rest of the above shop. maybe can fight with ajisen lol. the only thing good here is tt the soup is damn ****ing spicy... tt is if u wan it to be. dont bother coming other for the novelty of burning your tougue off.

ps. all above shops have service charge and if the stewed boiled egg does not have a orange slightly watery center then wat your eating isnt ramen. dont bother going back.

personally,i like beppu.not so much of high standard of ramen but rather i love their spicy soup.i always take the level 8 hotness which is the max.at least once a month while my gf is still stuck ay level 6

Wow!! I am impressed! You had ramen 4 times in a week! Power!

How to eat ramen:

1) Admire the arrangement of the different condiments in the ramen - egg, chashu, negi (spring onions), etc. A well prepared ramen should have everything arranged aesthetically. After all, the packaging is everything in Japan!

2) Whiff in the aromatic smell. The soup should be hot and steaming. I have had ramen in Ajisen where the soup was just lukewarm! Oh and if you are eating with other people in Japan, remember to say your Ittadakimasu now.

3) First just drink the soup. Yes just only the soup. Depending on the region the ramen is from, it will either be shio, shoyu, miso or tonkotsu. See which one you like.

4) Then take a bite of the noodle. The noodle is very important. I always find the noodles too dry and starchy in Ajisen. Perhaps their noodle is not truly fresh? Enjoy the texture. After the first bite, you can eat normally.

5) The egg. Most ramens have either a boiled egg or a stewed egg. I prefer the stewed variety. It is much harder to do and it taste better!

6) The chashu. Of cos not all ramen come with chashu. But good chashu seems to be a difficult thing to get here. Try the one in Ohsho.

7) Slurping. Well slurping is optional here in Singapore. But you should eat your ramen hot.

last time i tried uma uma men at century sq... they claimed their noodle and stock followed as close as authentic jap style.. damn.. first visit i regretted and never return since.

when served, the soup already not piping hot, the texture of noodle is bad(like overcooked), tonkotsu stock tasted mostly of MSG and salt than pork..

Different tolerance lah....but u really good... The level 6 is the most spicy stuff I ever had, maybe chung ching steamboat can fight with it.

Anyway just went to Miharu (again after reading this thread)....soup/noodle is very good but eat till the end find it a tad saltish. Chasiew is dissappointing though, comes in very large chunk so not soft enough. And the place is super hot (temperature), eat n sweat all over. But will go back again, just for the soup.

ichibantei and ichiban is not the same. ichibantei is @ robinson quey which is almost beside gallery hotel.

there's only one miharu which is located outside gallery hotel not city hall. the place is not tt hot to me.
