Ippudo @ Westgate

Apart from the sides and out of the 3 kinds of noodles ordered, I still prefer the bare basic of the Hakata style ramen in its original broth. Service was very prompt till the extent that once they see an empty or almost emptied bowl / plate, they will ask if it can be cleared off which in turn made us feel that they are somehow hinting us that there are long queues outside. If you want to have some good taste of Ramen, Ippudo is a good choice, however, it is not an ideal place where you can sit, chill and catchup with friends on chats.

One of my top 3 bowls of ramen in Singapore

This is my first time eating at Westgate’s Ippudo. Ordered my usual Shiromaru Tamago – classic Hakata-style ramen in tonkotsu broth with flavoured egg, and chose medium hardness for the springy thin and long ramen. Served with melt-in-the-mouth tender and well-marinated bara chashu as well as cabbage, kikurage or black fungus and spring onion to intersperse the pork belly that had just the right amount of fats. Broth was thick and flavourful, the way I remembered it to be. I could not fault the perfectly soft-boiled egg with runny yolk though preferred the pan-fried dumplings to Spicy Boiled Gyoza.

Overpriced ramen that is mediocre

The reputation looms higher than the noodles. Not the best ramen in Singapore but reasonably good.

A bit of noodles with two pieces of fatty pork, some veg for _$16. it's overpriced.

The soup was tasty but overly fatty. The last time I had Ippudo was at Mandarin hotel. never again, in Singapore.  My reference is Ippudo in Kyoto where we had a lovely ramen,  well balanced, and not over powering in any aspect.  

I Challenge you to repeat that version that I ate in Kyoto!

Service was good and tight but unsmiling - servers smile at Jap restaurants.

Comfortable seating and tightly spaced tables.

poor service

I reached the restaurant at 3pm and saw a long queue with approx 6-8 pax. However, I noted there are at least 6 empty seats. The queue was not moving. I had to ask the service crew how long i had to wait and pointed to him the empty seats. I do not think it's lack of staff to usher the patrons but they are taking it slow because it's not peak hour. As usual food is nice but service does affect the overall dining experience.

Queue, Eat, Go

It is my first time eating at Ippudo. We queued for 20 minutes, fortunately there were just 2 of us so we could get a table faster than many others still in the queue. We shared a plate of gyoza and had 2 separate bowls of ramen. We also ordered an extra portion of ramen (kaedema). Food is superb, we loved the texture of the noodles and taste of the broth. The tables are placed close together, this is not a place for you to chat but to enjoy your ramen and then leave so that the rest of the hungry people in the long queue outside get to eat next. Service is quick. The delicious taste is certainly worth coming back. You should add a category "Quick Eat".
