Pork cheeks!

I am ONLY here for the pork cheeks! 

Okay I have been to ramen santouka a couple of times and they do NOT disappoint! Okay just one time during my last visit, i find their pork cheek a tad salty but thats it! They are still the yummy pork cheek that melts in the mouth! super yummy! Here's how you eat this, you just dump whatever that is in the plate into the soup with noodles. Noodles and soup was yummy too. I am not sure about other outlets though.. only been to the one at the central. Not sure if they're consistent compared to other store. :)

Great Ramen! Will definitely be back

I have been to santouka more times then i can remember and i think its a staple in my diet routine by now.

I cant remember which are the best dishes but i can say that the food is generally consistant across all outlets!

and the pork cheeks are some of the best in Singapore

Not bad for the price

Though they were kept busy all the time, their service was personal and attentive. Their ramen is one of the best I have eaten. Waiting in the long queue was worthwhile. Will be back for more!

Lives up to it's top position

I used to think that another ramen place at Liang court was the best but recent make there have been disappointing.

Food: ordered the iberico pork ramen. large serving with shoyu soup and a side late of pork and veg. Pork, soup and even the single piece of fish cake were excellent. my only complaint is that the noodles tasted too much like out yellow noodles served with hokkien mee.

Value:  We had the 50% discount from facebook so at $11 (total $13 per bowl with tax),  it was excellent value.  However at $22 per bowl, it is rather pricey for noodles and meat.

Service:  Good and quick.  Had to queue a bit.

Ambience:  Set in the corner of central,  airconditioning was poor, seats and tables comfortable.

Not going back.

I tried both the miso ramen and the spicy miso ramen.The biggest letdown of this place is in the ramen noodles itself.It lacks texture,and I can taste the preservatives on the noodles.The spicy miso rbroth would be a better option than the miso,The bamboo shoots were also undercooked,leaving a strong aftertaste (I usually love bamboo shoots).Thank god,they cooked my egg well!
