Best Ramen

Actually, I have a slight phobia of eating ramen. The oily, heavy and salty soup with a strong smell of pork, combined with the alkaline taste of ramen noodles—these usually are too strong for my tastes. I had tried the soup base of a number of famous ramen restaurants and had always ended up stopping after one sip. The one exception is the ramen in Tonkotsu Kazan Ramen.

One of the main reasons is because despite the milky appearance, the soup is light, infused with the flavours of fresh vegetables and not oily. It tastes almost like clear soup, which is what I prefer. Moreover, the soup is very flavourful due to the use of pork bones, yet there is no hint of that strong pungent smell of pork that is evident in lots of ramens—just like how the fishy smell is off-putting in fishes, if you know what I mean.

Another thing I like about the ramen here is that lots of fresh vegetables are added, so there is variation to the taste and texture instead of just downing strands of starch and carbohydrates. The noodles are a bit soggy, but I appreciate that they do not have that taste of lye that I dislike. Recommend to dip the food in the soya sauce mixed with freshly crushed garlic to up the simulating factor. Yes, you get to crush the garlics by yourself.

The tori kaarage is tasty with no hint of the smell of stale oil—I am sensitive to that. The gyoza is decent due to the fresh pork used.

The place is quite cramped and humble in terms of furnishing. At least, it is clean. The service is pretty good. Not exceptional when it comes to attentiveness and promptness, but they do give off a vibe that they enjoy what they are doing instead of executing what is expected of them. Special mention of the chef who not only handles the cooking station well in full view of the patrons, he is also very alert, responding promptly to our requests.

This is the only place I will go for ramen. Glad to find a restaurant that gets me to appreciate ramen and don't mind eating it again.

Was researching on ramen near my area which is central area. Randomly saw this ramen place in novena which is .. um near my place and there is something unique about their ramen too! Not only do they serve normal ramens in bowls, they have special ones in CLAYPOT. Yes, CLAYPOT. 

It is easy to locate the place. It is just by the escalator at the second floor.

Decided to pop in looking at the crowd and intriguing looking stone pot with red metal inverted funnel-like lids on them. 
Turned out, they're actually pretty good! I'll highly recommend going for their hinomaru tomato kazan if you're a fan of tomato flavour. Their charsiu is good too, thick, flavourful yet tender. Gyoza looks bad and charred, but still tasted great. 
They failed at making flavoured egg though, I almost mistook them for just plain soft boiled.
