Keisuke Tonkotsu King: Ramen King At Tanjong Pagar



Mr Keisuke Takeda with his award-winning title "King of Tonkotsu" during Tokyo Ramen Championship 2011 in Japan, has four different ramen concept outlets namely Tonkotsu King, Tori King, Tonkotsu King Four Seasons, Tonkotsu King Matsuri and a gyoza dining concept Gyoza King.

"Tonkotsu" is a popular ramen broth that's cooked with pork marrow bones and fat for hours till it is milky white and thick.

At Keisuke Tonkostu King, one can choose between the basic Tonkotsu Ramen ($10.80), Black Spicy ($11.80) or Red Spicy ($11.80) with additional toppings such as seaweed, flavoured eggs and all topping.

Over here, one can protein load with the bottomless supply of hard-boiled eggs! I love eggs and had 5 of them, excluding 3 yolks. Free flow of bean sprouts are available as well.

Good Ramen

Came here for a late lunch so avoid the long queue! Yay!! Saw that they actually provided free barley for customers who are waiting in line to help themselves to, they even left several fans in case it get too hot. That's nice. I ordered: Black Spicy Ramen - the broth was thick and savory. I opted for the noodle as 'normal' texture so that's nice for me. The soup was not spicy at all, just a hint of it. The pork slices were thick and flavourful, but a little tough. I opted for additional flavour egg and it was good, soft & seasoned at the yoke. Free beans sprout - I thought it would be plain boiled bean sprouts but I was surprised to find a small jar of bean sprout goodness left on the table for your own service. Their bean sprouts were boiled and seasoned with sesame, spicy oil and something yummy. I only know I CANNOT stop eating that!! I wanted to whack the free eggs too but was way too full from the free bean sprouts to do so. Will return if in the area, just to whack the bean sprouts again!

One of The Best

For the complete Chubby Botak Koala exprience, click here:

Ramen Keisuke Tonkotsu King ('RKTK') originated from Tokyo, the birth place of Tonkotsu Ramen. The innovator of this delicious ramen is Celebrity Chef Keisuke Takeda whose culinary background not only in Japanese Cuisine but also in French Cuisine. With the idea to introduce Ramen to the world, he expanded his Ramen shop concept to Singapore.   RKTK in Orchid Hotel is the second outlet in Singapore. It can easily be identified with people queueing to get into this tiny shop which can only cater about 30 pax. Be prepare to wait, as their normal waiting time for this tiny shop is about 30 minutes. The dining concept here is very simple, come – queue – order – eat & drink – pay – out. You can do your socialising when you are queueing or after you exit the shop.   As this is my first time here, I decided to order Tonkotsu Ramen Special (All Toppings) - $14.80. For flavour, I decided to go with the Original Japanese taste, meaning NORMAL for taste of soup, chicken oil and noodle texture.   While waiting for the ramen to be serve, you can make yourself busy by pounding the black and white sesame that you can incorporate to your soup. You can help yourself to unlimited helpings of hard boil eggs and pickled bean sprouts. For Chubby Botak Koala, the first thing he start is always snapping away with his Nikon.   The serving of the ramen is just a sight to behold. Size is huge, but the presentation simple yet appetizing. I like the enormous size of the seaweed, kind of giving you a screen to cover our greedy faces when you go on your ramen slurping rampage. I took a quick snap of of the whole bowl and lift up the ramen and started my 'ME & Ramen' only time. I can imagine that I put Do Not Disturb sign on my forehead.   The ramen has a nice thickness to it, noodle is cooked to al-dente. Each slurp of the ramen is well coated with addictive robust, milky and collagen filled broth. Some people will find it slightly salty, but it is agreeable to my tastebud. The meat is lean, but it is tender and flavourful. Although I would prefer it to be pork belly, I have to agree it might just too overwhelming here. I was bedazzled, and finished my bowl of ramen, almost to the last drop. Yum Yum, Two Thumbs Up!!   Service is warm, friendly and laud. You can consider them to be efficient and decisive when they try to turn the table for other customers in the queue.   Overall, this is definitely one of the best ramen in Singapore. I really enjoy my dining experience here. After my first visit to Japan recently, I believe Ramen is best enjoy in a confined space, where you are shoulder to shoulder with the other customers. Once you slurp the broth, you won't realise that there is someone beside you until you accidentally elbow the one sitting next to you. Cheers!!

Long queue and small area, as usual

It always good to come as early as before it opens. But then after eating a few times at there, found that the standard of the ramen has dropped.

It's no longer the strong and tasty ramen that I used to know of.

Good, but not fantastic ramen.

The place is pretty much hole-in-the-wall, with its small space and somewhat cramped seating arrangement. The gaps between tables are small, just barely qualifying as "separated' from the adjacent table. The small menu was easy to understand, with only 3 kinds of ramen available; Original, Red Spicy and Black Spicy. The Black Spicy is made from pepper while the Red Spicy's heat comes from red chilli paste. One can choose to customise the kind of noodles (hard/normal/soft), oil level and addition of toppings (Ajitsuke egg/Seaweed/more noodles/more cha shu).

My first kyushu-style ramen taste was from Ajisen, and ever since then, the characteristic thick pork-bone broth (tonkotsu) with its accompanying noodles has become a comfort food.
