Done with shopping my makan kaki began to crave hot soupy ramen and we decided to pop over to Suntec City for the basketball with a mole. It’s our first time dining at this outlet though we’d tried the one in The Central.
Full of barang barang, it’s too cramped to sit inside the ramen shop so we shifted to a four-seater outside. Surprisingly, the place was mostly empty on a Sunday evening.
We stuck to our favorite aka ramen (chicken soup ramen with a mixture of seven kinds of ground nuts $15), which was mildly spicy and the tori dango (chicken meatballs) offered a springy bite.
Similar to marutama ramen in ingredients, the karashi ramen (chicken soup ramen with toppings $12) was however spicy though the broth was deceptively clear. There’s only a single piece of char siu (sliced roast pork) and it’s sufficiently tender.
We also ordered tamago (half boiled seasoned egg $1.50) which oozed runny yolk and it’s deeply flavored with a robust soya sauce aroma.
Topped with plenty of greens – mustard greens, parsley and spring onion, the noodle was thin, curly and it wasn’t overcooked. Coupled with a thick and rich broth, our piping hot bowls of ramen were simple yet wonderfully comforting.
Service was brisk but due to faulty machines only cash was acceptable. Luckily K had enough, otherwise we’d have to scramble for an ATM.
Total damage: $35.30
