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.
