1-for-1 deal for ramen

It was quite a funny thinking I had, when I was having the ramen.  Basically the same spot used to own by another ramen owner.  Whereby I was having the meal at not long ago.  And now it has changed to another new owner, whereby they had the promo of 1-for-1.  That was where my friend had gathered all of us to go there and have similiar ramen.

That was the first time and last time that I went to there.

perhaps not

They serve ramen in different soup bases namely, shoyu, spicy, and tonkotsu. I am a huge fan of tonkotsu soup bases so that was what both of us chose. 

The tonkotsu soup base was thick with the strong scent of pork bones. I was initially very excited about the thick fragrant soup base and was happily digging into my bowl of ramen. But the thick chalky soup base became cloyingly sweet towards the end and I had trouble finishing my bowl. The ramen was also reminiscent of Chinese la mian, and not the usual springy japanese ramen. 

The braised pork belly was soft, tender and very well-braised. The barbecued meat was lean and tender. If you are not a fan of marbly fatty meat, I would strongly advise the barbecued meat instead.

The egg was really good though, with a nice runny egg yolk within.

The bowl of ramen was decent, but definitely not fantastic. I doubt I would crave for a bowl of Daruma ramen but you might wish to pop by for a bowl if you are in the area.

very bad service and attitude

Don't ever step foot in! Food is bad, service is bad, extremely horrible attitude by chef. I'd rather eat instant noodles at home to eat here.

Did not stand out

For lunch, I decided for some soup and settled at Daruma Ramen House. Typical Japanese dark wooden setting but with a nice level of natural light.

I started with the chicken karaage, which was quite good actually. Crispy skin and a good level of fattiness in the tender chicken.

Unfortunately, the mainstay of the tonkotsu ramen was a little bit disappointing. The soup base was a strong pork bone broth but I felt that the white noodles did not do a good job of absorbing the goodness of the soup and hence had a strong alkaline taste to it.

Overall, a subpar experience and given that there are better options around, it was hard to recommend this brand.

Ramen only

Ramen only. Choose from shoyu (soy sauce base), spicy or tonkotsu (pork bone base) broths and top with slices of pork, chilli threads, soft-boiled eggs, seaweed and more. First timers should go straight for their big bestselling bowl ($18) that comes with tonkotsu broth, barbecued pork, mentaiko (cod roe) and double helpings of pork belly.
