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..
