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! :s12:

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?

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.

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.
