yesterday went to try ippudon ,

quite bad imo .... the serving is so small that i have to refill 4 times to make myself full :\

The tamago egg is quite disappointing at ippudon. Just like normal hard boiled egg.. So far the best i had is at Muratama, and it only cost $1

talking about this makes me angry , 6 bucks for 6 pathetic gyoza .

i think the filling is smaller than a wanton in a hawker center ...


overall i rate 5.5/10

i have high expectations for ramen .... especially i ate alot of famous and good ramens in tokyo itself .....

On the contrary, I found the servings very reasonable, and the refills are value for money.

If you need to eat 4 times to feel full then obviously you aren't an average person and as such making such a statement is unfair to the establishment

Ok, just a side note, but don't you think on average, Ramen establishments in Singapore are charging prices that are a tad high?

What is essentially a soup based noodle dish with moderate amounts of garnishing sets us back in the $15 zone inclusive of GST and Service charge.

I'm not fat or skinny but I always find the need to order an extra dish to go along with my Ramen to have a filling meal.

Ate at Marutama Ramen and ordered marutama ramen + additional Char siew toppings, one gyoza and a dashimaki egg dish that costs $8.....Total cost for 1 person = $34...Definitely not worth it but since I'm craving for ramen, I've got to bear with the price....

Since marutama is really near my place, I tend to frequent that place often and usually will order just the ramen and additional char siew but yesterday proved to be one of the days I was feeling really really hungry....

I don't remember ramens that I've tried in Tokyo to be so expensive...

i do agree that eating at these kind of ramen places is a bit pricey.

but if u choose ajisen ramne, it's cheap like only $12 or $15.

i think at the end of the day, it's the restaurant standard.

the good ones can afford to price high and still command crowd, just like any other restaurants.

there's cheaper ones around too.

Marutama's portion is way too small. And IMO, it ain't that good either.

For me, I tend to frequent Baikohken, where the portions are huge (sometimes too huge for average eaters). Sure, it's a little more expensive, but the quantity and quality makes it worth it.

But I'll have to agree that in general, ramen in Singapore is kind of expensive. Which is why I can only afford to go once in a while
