Hiro @ 203 Hougang Street 21, near Kovan MRT station. Ordered Hakata ramen ($5) with extra slice of pork (add $1)~



Really better than expected. The soup is not too thick or diluted, noodle texture is great. Sliced pork so so. Egg can be better. Overall great value for $$$. dun mind coming back if got craving & on budget.

huh... u like the noodle texture...?? either it's personal preferences or their quality inconsistent... i find the noodles too rough and a bit hard... not Q at all...

soup while it's not diluted... i find it's too one dimensional on the salty side...

edit: oh u ordered the hakata ramen... maybe i try that one next time... the one i had was the tonkatsu with black garlic one...

meat is too tough...

egg was decent...

another deal... Only $26 for $40 Dining Cash Voucher at Daruma Ramen House, Orchard

but last time the 1-for-1 opening promo was better...

Maybe i don't like too soft. I prefer my wanton mee to be springy, firm type.

My buddy also use this term 'too one dimensional' for the soup.

no... but i find it's not springy at all... i like firm and springy noodles too... but this one is just hard and rough...

ya... cos u can't really taste much other flavors other than saltiness lor... there are some other thicker and more salty ramen soups i've drank b4.. like menya's one... but those have many dimensions so it's more interesting and not just plain salty lor...

Actually i find Daruma Ramen nice. Think can ask my buddy to whack.
ya i think it's not bad too... i remember the charshu is pretty tender...

I also personally also don't like this style, I also prefer more 'q' myself.

However this type of noodle is kind of the style of Hakata ramen... hence why I stay away from Ikkousha at Ramen Champion. Hence I won't complain about the noodle as it is signature.

Anyway the soup is not too terrible for me. Some restaurants that serve ramen for over 2x-3x the price can't even get their soup right... So in that context I thought this shop at least gives a 'fk' to their soup.

If there is one ramen that I would like to try in Japan, it would be the Jiro Ramen.

Menya Shin Chan (now no longer around) sold a variant of Jiro with loads of vegetables. The closest now I guess would be Bario that is at Ramen Champion (pales in comparison to the Jiro from Menya Shin Chan) . Eaten with loads of raw garlic.
Hmm Jiro Style with lots of veges... there's one dish at Airport T3's ramen champion Riki Ramen... They serve Jiro Style but there's a variation with lots of veges, I like to order that one.

However I do remember their quality dropped alot compared to initial... Now is ah tiong cooking and although it is still good, initially Riki has super nice chashuu... Now I think not so good liao...

I've tried Riki. I think it is alright. But to travel all the way from the west to eat, I think not worth my time.

Here's a link to a clip on Youtube about Jiro Ramen. I think if Swordsman order the normal one, should be sufficient for him.

i mean "one-dimensional" refers to taste... may it be soup or can be any food... if you want to know what is 100% one-dimensional just go and boil some salt in plain water and drink... or boil some pure sugar in plain water and drink...

so when i mean something taste one dimensional means there is only like one taste... a "multi-dimensional" taste would be one where you don't just taste it to be simply salty or simply sweet... even though the food may be strong in one particular taste... you would also experience a blend of other kind of tastes inside...

I also personally also don't like this style, I also prefer more 'q' myself.

However this type of noodle is kind of the style of Hakata ramen... hence why I stay away from Ikkousha at Ramen Champion. Hence I won't complain about the noodle as it is signature.

i agree about the price... at $5.50 can't really compare it with restaurants....
