Hoongy !

black ramen

As part of the Tokyo Walker dining concept, Ajisen is introducing the black ramen (Kuro Mayu), which is essentially made from pork bone (tongkotsu) stock and garlic that is deep fried till it becomes black.

At a recent tasting, I found the stock to be better than my previous dining experience with a well balanced level of spiciness and the pork belly had a nice melt in the mouth bite to it. Quite enjoyable

porly porly ajisen - declining quality of ramen

The standard of noodle has declined over the year. We ordered paiku ramen.
 
The soup tastes plain. The meat is hard. The number of meat given is three as compared to the previous 4 pieces we have. Everything was just bad.

To avoid ajisen as much as possible.

Catch up with the times, man!

Although many people think Ajisen sucks, I'm very partial to Ajisen. I rather like it..but recently I went to the outlet at Plaza Singapura, I decided to change my mind.

Emmy ordered the dried noodles and I ordered the beef stew. Both fell below our expectations. The beef stew soup had no taste at all. With so many other ramen shops around it, I wonder why Ajisen doesn't improve itself or at least maintain its standards.

The service was prompt and good.

Nice Ajisen outlet

This is the ajisen that i visit the most. The ambience is good and the service is good too. We always don't have to wait for too long for the food to come. The dishes that i personally recommend for people who love spicy food is their volcano ramen! SPICYYYY!!! their sides are also delicious. like white fish, soft shell crab and age tofu.

Decent bowl of seafood la mian...

With the World Cup rumbling n tumbling in the background... i guessed football fanatics like yours truly are slacking on their food reviews... Don't blame us! Blame the jabulani! the vuvuzelas! and the kelong referees! Haha..

I admit i'm somewhat of a ramen snob at times (but never a food snob mind u!) and strictly stick to authentic joints like baikohken, menya shinchan & miharu... However, sometimes one should just be more easy-going and so off i go and hop into the one who introduce ramen to Singapore - Ajisen... the 1st ramen joint!

For lunch they do have a value set which includes a ramen + a side dish + a drink... Having last been to Ajisen when they 1st started, my memories r faded hence i followed whatever my colleagues ordered and had the seafood ramen.. For sides they have a good selection from sushi to tofu to fried stuff n i decided to go for fried cuttlefish..Drinks r standard with iced lemon tea or iced green tea...

I quite enjoy my bowl of ramen with the generous array of seafood from mini scallops to prawns to crab meats etc.. I liked e quality & quantity & variety of e seafood. The broth is tasty and easy on e lips but of course is a far cry from a well-brewed full-bodied broth of authentic joints but still delightful.. The noodles r alrighty reminding me of those thick bee hoon from fish soup but the egg is overcooked hence lacking the lava egg factor...The side of fried cutlefish is quite appetizing albeit oily and is a smart addition to my seafood theme lunch...

Overall i quite enjoy this little bowl of ramen which i ate it without really considering it as ramen ramen.. u know those real deal ramens with char siews esp since there's mapo tofu ramen & tom yum ramen posters surrounding me.. Ajisen might not be your baikohken, marutama or miharu but just think of it as a tasty bowl of la mian and not ramen ramen n u will be fine..
