My two cents worth.

Ichibantei and Kado Men are worth trying out.
I would recommend Ken Noodle.
Beppu and Kyo Nichi arent exactly good.
Try Shimbashi Soba at Paragon. A tad expensive but the quality of their noodles is fantastic.
Where is Kado Men?

I went to try 2 places!



This is the terrific Jyangara Ramen at Tampopo. They were advertising this new pork they were using for their ramen - Kurobuta (Black Pig). And I must say the Kurobuta Chashu is really good! In fact it is really the best chashu I have tasted till now! The soup is a very nice tonkotsu base (though i think it is a bit salty?) and the egg is also marvellous (losing just a bit to Ken's egg I feel). The only thing is I don't really like the noodles. Miharu also claims they use Hokkaido noodles and theirs is so much better.

Nevertheless, the whole place was crowded with Japanese eating noodles and it is really good.

The other place I went to was Kadomen. I think the place is more like a small izakaya cos they have lots of other dishes as well. And it is a really small place. When I was there, I only managed to try their very common chashu men (shoyu soup base) but they have a wide range of other ramen, and some very odd flavours too. They seemed to be very proud of their tantan men cos they were recommending it to me, perhaps someone here can try theirs and compare it with Ichibantei? As for their chashumen, the chashu were very very thin slices not to my taste but the noodles were very nice. I think they might do better with their more unique ramen or chanpon type of dishes.

Okay I shall round up all the ramen I have tried in these few weeks:


MIHARU (tokusen miso ramen)
soup:*** noodle:*** chashu:* egg:**

ICHIBANTEI (tonkotsu ramen)
soup:** noodle:** chashu:** egg:**

OHSHO (tamago ramen)
soup:* noodle:** chashu:*** egg:**

AJISEN (tokusen ramen)
soup:** noodle:* chashu:* egg:*

KEN's NOODLE SHOP (aji tama ramen)
soup:*** noodle:** chashu:*** (for size, ** for taste) egg:***

TAMPOPO (kyushu jyanngara ramen)
soup:*** noodle:** chashu:*** egg:***

KADOMEN (chashu men)
soup:** (shoyu) noodle:*** chashu:* egg:N.A.

Just back from Hokkaido, and really love the ramen there.

Had the clock-tower ramen in sapporo, ajisai ramen in hakodate, and my favorite, the one in asahikawa, fire on mountain。All superb ramen!

Decided to look for good ramen in Singapore, and found this thread, will try those recommended by you and see if any one could have similiar standard.

Which one should I try first?

BTW, I remember that there was a ramen store in Maxwell couple of years ago, which sells ramen at only $4.9, which is of pretty good quality, especially the chashu meat. Seems it's gone now, anyway knows where they relocated to? (hopefully they didn't close shop)

I tried Noodle House Ken ...

Good soup, rich and not salty. Good stewed egg (the yolk inside is soft and gooey). Chashu is dry though. So my experience is the same as the ones reported in this thread. Made the mistake of ordering bigger portion thinking they serve more ingredients, end up more noodles. Should've just topped up ingredients with $2.

doubt the noodles here will be better than japan.

anyway the ramen shop in maxwell is not in singapore anymore. the jap dude went back to japan and closed shop. prob experimental biz venture in singapore.

I went to ramen ramen. Basically this place is a similar version of Ajisen. I had their Ramen Ramen Ramen. The soup isn't hot enough and I don't like the kind of noodles they use (quite similar to the Ajisen type really). The chashu is not bad though, the pieces are big and not too dry. That is probably the only good thing to recommend this over Ajisen.

RAMEN RAMEN (ramen ramen ramen)
soup:** noodles:* chashu:*** egg:* (half a boiled egg)
