Chabuton at 313 Somerset serves a junior bowl or ramen for lunch ($12.30) we like the shoyu ramen but the miso and tonkatsu versions are creamy, but lacking in flavour. The set comes with lackluster sides like gyoza and fried squid. Hot green tea and Hokkaido ice-cream are included as well. We had high hopes. *Sigh*
Warm welcome by staff, with guide to table. Menu given almost immediately. Ambience gd with modern English music. Lighting warm and bright. Chosen tonkatsu ramen 12.9 with added egg. Food served within 5 minutes. Additional serving of noodle is at $2.5. Soup is rather bland compared to other tonkatsu ramen. Noodle still has the alkaline smell. Somehow the egg from 711 is better than here. More flavourful and tasty.
I have been here 2 times for lunch. The first time, I had the lunch set, and found the ramen salty. The 2nd time, I had the char siew rice and although I enjoyed the flavor, my tongue was slightly painful at the end of the meal due to oversalting.

Presenting to you the first exclusive ramen dish created by world's first Michelin-starred ramen chef, Chef Yasuji Morizumi. The premium Tonkotsu Ramen, The Kurobuta is only available from 17 January to 31 March 2015. Get it while stock last!
The blend of tonkotsu and chicken collagen soup is very thick and creamy, it’s also pack with nutritional values. Oh it just melts in your mouth, full of flavour and so savoury. Sadly the egg isn't very consistent, some turned out to be slightly hard boiled. Overall, it is worth trying!
One of my favourite ramen in Chabuton, Shoyu Zaru Ramen aka dipping noodles. I personally prefer thick noodles as compared to the ones in The Kurobuta. And Fried Squid is a must to order, crispy and chewy when it's served hot.
