Question Best ramen in Singapore

Personally I do not like Ajisen. The noodle is always undercooked and the chashu is dry and tasteless. They used to have rather good Golden eggs (half cooked eggs) with their Tokusen ramen but recently I found out they have reverted back to hard boiled eggs again. Currently I think their Nankotsu Ramen is the best.

I think the ramen at Gyoza no Ohsho is marginally better. Now they have golden eggs and their chashu is soft and lovely. But the soup is usually rather weak.

I have tried Noodle Shop Ken (is it still there?) but the chashu is nowhere better.

You can also get ramen in the Japanese restaurant in Meidi-ya but the few times I tried it there I wasn't impressed with the noodle or the soup.

I am planning to give the Ramen Ichiban restaurant a try one of these days. I hope it will not be a letdown.

So anyone has had great ramen in Singapore? Let's talk about where we can find the best ramen!

I forgot the name of the place. 1st floor of Gallery Hotel?

It's probably me, but I like the noodle form Ajisen. Their ramen standards aren't top notch compared other Japanese places, but I eat there just for their noodles. I like them the texture they are.

Sapporo Ramen Miharu? Oh I haven't tried that either. Has anyone tried it yet? So I guess they will be better known for their miso ramen?

Yup the one at gallery hotel is Miharu but I don't know why I seem to find Tampopo's Kyushu Jangara Ramen more tasty although they're different variants. My all time favorite is still Noodle House Ken.
There's a review of tampopo here:

I usually ask for extra toppings with gyoza at ken's place. Ended up paying a lot more

Oh yes it is called Ichibantei. Maybe I should try that!

Tampopo is the one in Meidi-ya. Is it better now? I have tried their Hokkaido style ramen a while ago but I didn't find anything special with it. Maybe I should go and try their Kyushu Jangara Ramen.

Yes sometimes the Ajisen one is very salty. But the worse saltiest ramen I had was the Miso Chasu Ramen from Musashi Ramen in Tokyo. My tongue went numb.

Oh I think I prefer the gyoza from Ohsho much better.

I didn't like gyoza from Ohsho Taste-wise it's good, but it falls apart much too easily.

It's quite nice lah, but I think it's over rated.
