With a name that means "noodle hut" in Japanese, this casual restaurant serves exactly what you'd expect: freshly made ramen (noodles), free of preservatives, served with ingredients and broth that are just as meticulously prepared.
Was craving for ramen about 3 to 4 weeks ago, & I was working nearby, so I decided to pop by since I'd heard that the ramen was acceptable and affordable. I went at 4, so the place was empty. Very cosy and small space. Took about 10 minutes or less for them to cook my ramen; I was also especially pleased that they took the initiative to separate my ramen and soup as in the past I had the misfortune to encounter a few places neglected to do so.
I got my mandatory tonkotsu ramen; the noodles were curly, which kinda spoilt it a bit for me as I much prefer the traditional and more appropriate straight Hakata ramen. Egg yolk was semi-soft; wish it was completely soft, but surprisingly it's so far the best out of all the other ramen places that I've tried in Singapore. Also, I doubt that they use MSG because I wasn't as thirsty after drinking the soup as I usually am at other ramen places.
Oh, & I got an extra whole egg for a dollar. A bit over-priced if you ask me, seeing as the seasoning & egg shouldn't cost more than 50 cents, but that's just me.
Service was overall alright; the cashier wasn't very courteous and polite. He did thank me at the end though, but not very sincerely as they're supposed to in Japanese culture. They were thoughtful enough though to put a packeted green tea bag and a serviette in my take-out bag, which I do appreciate. Frankly-speaking, I'll only be back if I'm in the area and craving ramen, otherwise I'd rather grab something at Lau Pa Sat.
