Tonkotsu Ramen, with a twist.

Keisuke Tonkotsu King Four Seasons probably serves one of the best bowls of ramen in Singapore. 

The 'Winter' bowl is a bowl of traditional Tonkotsu ramen. If you aren't adventurous or if you're a purist, you could go for this, or the 'King' bowl, which is topped off with stir-fried pork. I would recommend anyone dining here for the first time to try the 'King' bowl with all toppings.

Keisuke expresses and evokes the colours of Spring in his bowl with illustrations of cherry blossoms (yes, there are different bowls for the different seasons of ramen) of Tonkotsu Ramen by serving a bowl of Tonkotsu ramen intricately sprinkled with basil and parmesan cheese. It's a very adventurous and bold pairing with Tonkotsu broth, but it actually works! 

I have not tried the other two seasons, but I will update this review accordingly when I do.

I would advise you to make it a point to have your ramen with all toppings, or at least, have the flavoured soft-boiled egg, which never disappoints. I usually order 'hard' noodles, and have my broth and oil as 'normal'. Comparing ramen noodles in Singapore doesn't really get you anywhere, as last I checked, most restaurants import their noodles from the same place anyway. Just go for 'hard' noodles, and I'm sure you'll be happy. 'Soft' noodles feel like overcooked instant noodles, and I'd stay away from that. 

Each table also has a free-flow of delicious, marinated beansprouts (I finish a whole jar every time) and hard-boiled eggs, which can be eaten with the mayonnaise provided. 

Ramen Keisuke also bottles up their own Green Tea Cola, which helps to cut through the overall 'jelat'-ness expected of a good Tonkotsu broth.

There's not much to talk about when it comes to ambience. Just sit down, enjoy your bowl of ramen, and leave. Please don't spend too much time taking photographs of your ramen as the noodles still continue to cook in the hot broth! 

Ramen Keisuke Tonkotsu King Four Seasons at Bugis serves bowls of Tonkotsu ramen with a twist. Even if you aren't adventurous, their standard Tonkotsu broth is absolutely heavenly and this is easily one of the best places to be for Tonkotsu ramen in Singapore.

Sigh lukewarm soup

For the full post and pictures visit toseetofeeltoeat

I went for the King Ramen ($13.90) with stir-fried pork, ginger, and black fungus. The ramen was springy and the stir-fried pork was delicious. However, the bowl of ramen as a whole was really greasy and heavy. I should also add that the soup was kind of lukewarm instead of hot, as if the bowl of ramen was left sitting on the counter for a long while before it was served.

My dad went for the Autumn Ramen with all the toppings (e.g. egg and seaweed). The Autumn Ramen comes with minced pork and mushrooms. My dad agreed that the soup was rather lukewarm which made the bowl of ramen very greasy and heavy.

Save space for the complimentary marinated beansprouts

For the full review, please go to http://thehungrybunnie.blogspot.sg/2014/05/ramen-keisuke-tonkotsu-king-four-seasons.html

This is the Bugis offshoot of the hugely popular, perpetually-queued Keisuke Tonkotsu King at Tras Street. Be sure to go at off-peak hours though, I've heard that the queues here are almost as maddeningly long as the original one at Orchid Hotel.

We had:

1) Tonkotsu Ramen Autumn Special ($16.90): flavoured with sweet bonito, fried mushrooms and pork mince. The tonkotsu stock here is possibly one of the richest and thickest ever, so this may not be for you if you prefer more delicate broths.

2) Tonkotsu Ramen Summer Special ($17.90): wildly spicy, this was as rich in depth as it was spicy.  
 
3) Seasoned Beansprouts - complimentary: spiked with sesame oil, chilli pepper and sesame seeds, really fantastic and addictively delicious, we had repeat helpings of these.

Long queues, friendly service

I ordered Autumn ($12.90) because I simply can't resist mushrooms. Look at the bowl with autumn leaves! The little minced mushrooms were a delight to savour- the mushroom goodness that bursts with every bite. Needless to say, the eggs were done perfectly- slightly runny and flavourful. If not for concerns about salt intake, I would have slurped this bowl of robustly flavoured soup down!

Friendly service, food was served quickly. The queues can be pretty long though- be prepared to wait!

Different 4 seasons concept of ramen

We did queue abit when it newly opened.  But ramen wasn't as good as compared, that was why we didn't go back.  I ordered for sakura flavour, maybe a different season might taste yummy.
