Ramens

Ajisen Ramen, “The best Ramen in Singapore”, or so they claimed. Started in November 1997, Ajisen opened the first Ramen shop at Bugis Junction. Ajisen Ramen is now the largest Ramen chain in Singapore, with a total of 12 outlets in Singapore in these 9 years.

“ There is something peculiar about Ajisen Ramen and it’s all in the soup. Their Ramen’s Tonkotsu soup can help to prevent aging!

The Japanese Society of Nutrition & Food Science announced in a general meeting, “The intake of collagen contained in the bones and cartilage, etc prevents aging.” Collagen is a protein, mainly found in the skin, tendon, bone, cartilage and other connective tissues. This protein is the essence of life because it easily makes up one third of the 60 trillion body cells. And our Tonkotsu soup has lots of collagen!

What is health without taste? A feature of Kumamoto Ramen is Senmiyu; a rich brown sauce that accompanies the fair Tonkotsu soup. Our unique culinary methods ensure that all the flavors are sealed into the sauce. In fact, Ajisen guarantee that your taste-buds will be bowled over by their Tonkotsu/Senmiyu combination! “

Went to meet my mom for dinner at IMM after Arnold’s celebration, at first wanted to go Secret Recipe for dinner, cos i want to eat their desserts, but my mom wanted to eat ramen, to savour that time she went to Japan and had ramen. Although there was a few Japanese restaurants around, we settled on Ajisen since my mom wanted ramen. The restaurant was packed fully, but there was still space for two-seaters. We took a while to decide on the ramen, and made our orders, suprisingly the ramen came quite fast despite many patrons in the restaurant, mayb its very easy to cook ramen : )

Ramen cost 10 bucks each, but you have the raman set, which consist of a ramen, side dish, and a drink for $13.80. We chose the crayfish ramen (voted most popular), and the soft ribs ramen

Crayfish Ramen

The crayfish ramen was quite special, the crayfish came with a sweet-spicy sauce. Ramen had egg, crayfish of cos, and mushroom. The ramen soup was quite delicious, but i found it too salty, had to drink tons of water after finishing the ramen.

Soft ribs Ramen

Actually every ramen is the same except for the main ingredient that comes with it, for this one is soft pork ribs, the ribs was managed rather well-balance, very chewy. My mom commented that the ramen in Japan was nicer, the noodle was not so thick, much thinner there : )

Chicken cutlet that comes with the ramen set

The sauce for the chicken was nice, but the chicken was a tad too small, o well after all this is the compliment set.

Fried prawn which also come with the ramen set

Fried prawn in Japanese restaurants was always nice, no complains

Simple dinner at Ajisen total bill was $32.49, not very expensive i guess, for the set came with a ramen, side dish and drink. But the quality of the side dishes can be improve i guess, they are not really worth it for the extra $3.80? But then again $3.80 for a side dish and drink, you can’t really complain can you?

Ordered Ton Toro Ramen ($16.50), which was most pricey among the rest. When I asked the waitress to explain more on this dish, she told me it had pork inside. Period. & she walked off. Not very helpful. So I let my tastebuds answered my question instead. The salty soup base was already a turn off, I figured the sliced pork was bacon strips. The ramen texture was just average. Not revisiting.

Went IMM for ceiling fan and looking around for a good dinner. Saw Ajisen, and it has been a long time since i had Ajisen.

Tried the famous and my fav Volcano dinner set meal. 1 side dish for each dinenr set. The portion has been reduced. Seems small and not as spicy. Good Service, but still wondering if the drinks is free flow or only entitled to 1 glass?

Spent $31 for 2, seems short changed as my experience differed from the past... anyway, the food is good and the service is acceptable.

the menus are great, from appetizer, main menu to dessert I found them all yummy and delicious. The service also wonderful and polite. But I still will complain about the seats at corner area where the air conditioner is right above it. It's very cold, it can even made a hot main menu dish turn very cold in less than 10 minutes. But since it was quite crowded we have no choice that to endure sitting in a 'fridge'. conclusion: A very nice dining experience if you seat anywhere else.

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
