If today is the end of the world, what are the 3 dishes you would want to eat before you die? For me, they are bak kut teh, crabs and ramen! That explains why I do patron this place very frequently. They are a chain of outlets, namely tori king, tonkatsu King and gyoza King! They are all worth the try! But if you are in the mood of having some pork flavored dishes, this is the place to go! Soup is very flavorful and you would want to finish every drop of it. It also has unlimited eggs and bean sprouts! Trust me, the bean sprouts over here is one of the best ever!

Having dined at 4 of their branches (Keisuke Tori King, Keisuke Tonkotsu King Four Seasons, Keisuke Tokyo, and Gyoza King), we thought it high time to visit the mothership where it all started.
 We had:

1) Black Spicy Tonkotsu King ($11.80) with Flavoured Egg ($2): so thick the broth was practically viscous. I couldn't finish this, it was terribly cloying. I should have ticked the 'light' option for the soup base, this needed to be watered down to half its viscosity.
2) Red Spicy Tonkotsu King ($11.80) with the option of Special Topping ($4) comprising a flavoured egg, seaweed, and stewed pork: just as stodgy. And the pork needed more flavour and stewing time.
 The best part of the meal was free: the marinated beansprouts that were totally refreshing, lightly spiced and delicious

Ramen + Green Tea Cola

Total Reviews: 75

Decided to visit this place after patronising the other outlet at Bugis (refer to previous review)
Location wise was quite close to MRT
Just like its fellow outlet at Bugis, the crowd here is not to be meddled with

In comparison to the Bugis outlet, the ramen here is slightly cheaper.
However, the quality pales in comparison.
The place is very cramped.
My friends and I, 6 in total, had to squeeze together to share 2 tables.
There was barely any space for any side dishes.

Recommended for off-peak hours.
Just like the previous review, do not forget your “Green Tea Cola”. :)

Like a true traditional ramen shop, Tonkotsu King does not have many options. Essentially, what a customer has control over is the saltiness and oiliness of the pork-based soup, with an additional option of choosing various sauces (black or red) to add spice. The newly-initiated should go for "normal" levels of saltiness and oiliness in a plain Tonkotsu soup base, which might be too strong compared to other eateries. This is how ramen's supposed to taste though. For subsequent visits, the "strong" levels are worth venturing into.

Upon receiving the order, the amount of fats floating within the soup might be shocking for the faint-hearted. Don't fret though, the fats add richness to the soup. Forget momentarily about cholesterol and sodium content; this is one of the best bowls of ramen you're gonna get in Singapore, so enjoy yourself and eat up. While we're on the topic, the soup is exceptionally thick, and for lack of a better word, "creamy". It tastes as though a live pig was thrown squealing into a pot of boiling water, and kept there until its flavour has thoroughly infused every water molecule. The broth is definitely a hard-hitter and takes no prisoners. When compared to some of the ramen we had in Japan however, Tonkotsu King's broth is more reliant on oil to bring about its heaviness and taste, whereas ramen in Japan was less oily but still more substantial and flavourful -perhaps due to the differences in pork quality, the duration of boiling or the amount of pork actually used. With that caveat aside, Tonkotsu King's broth is definitely one of the best you can get locally...
