Marutama’s specialty is the thin Japanese noodle – ramen – in one of four soup bases (chicken, spicy chicken, prawn or nuts). The soups are mildly flavoured and almost caramelin tone, an ideal template for the wheaty flavour of the ramen.
Tried many different ramen shops, and Marutama Ramen has very good texture. They serve a few different soup based ramen & I recommend the chicken flavoured! Add a tamago in your ramen for a nicely seasoned boiled egg, slightly watery on the inside.
The sides are exceptionally well done. One of the must tries is the Yaki Char Siew (comes in slices and served with lemon) - nicely roasted and melts in your mouth. For non-ramen fans, try the Char Siew Rice ($5) its a low budget alternative that can fill your stomach.
We also ordered a Gyoza, which was not bad, the serving's decent, soaked in a little vinegar.
There are alot of japanese ramen restaurant at the central, however marutama ramen is one of my favourite ramen restaurant that i would often patronize. I would recommend for everyone to try out this place for a bowl of ramen. If you are those that always go for full sets, they have additional add on that you can add on to go along with your ramen. After doing your shopping , a bowl of ramen at marutama is the best choice as a meal for dinner.
There are many ramen dining places in Singapore but in my honest opinion, Marutama ramen has got to be one of the better ramen outlets in Singapore. Located at the Central, this place offers ramen with thinner noodles (which is better than those thicker ones that makes it almost like udon) and their tamago (egg) is probably one of the best in the business. Do feel free to pop by here for a nice bowl of ramen here which you can top with seaweed and generous portions of spring onions. Water is foc and there are finger food available as well. The inside of the place can be a bit dark but I don't feel that it matters a lot.
