Interesting, but not the best

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.

volcanic ramen

With more than a hundred ramen stalls in Singapore, Tonkotsu Ramen has certainly done well to differentiate itself from the rest with its "volcanic" ramen. No, I am not referring to its spice level, but literally a metal "hood" that is placed above the hot stone ramen to retain its flavours while it is being cooked with its hot soup. With lots of vegetables, this has to be on one of the more healthier ramens I have eaten as well.

Worth a shot

Wanting something soupy for dinner that night, The Beau and I headed for ramen, since the "volcano ramen" concept seemed interesting, and this was one of the restaurants at Novena Square 2 that was not crowded on a Saturday evening.

It was a small and non-discreet little Japanese restaurant with rather friendly and jovial service crew. The setting was simple but richly infused with authentic Japanese decor.

For mains, I had the Chashyu Karamiso Ramen (SGD$15.00) with kimchi and flavored egg. It was supposed to be spicy, but it wasn't, though the soup was tasty. I don't get why we were given three halves of the flavored egg, but anyway eaten with the spicy kimchi, it was good. The pork slices were tender, firm and thick - very lovely to chew. The noodles looked springy / hard but were actually rather soft - I would prefer the doneness a little more taut.

The Beau had the Hot Stone Curry Fried Rice (SGD$7.00) - which he had to constantly stir so the rice would not stick to the pot. The rice was rather crispy, and the curry was good - the taste was distinctive without being overly spicy. The pork slices on top of the fried rice were rather tender as well. The portion was just nice, making it a rather fulfilling meal.

Lunch time favorite

Eat here once a week for a good quick and hearty lunch. Usually order the Ramen and Gyoza combo for about $16. Really flavourful and you get 6 Gyoza which is more than other places like Ippudo.

Interesting Ramen Dining Experience

For more photos and in-depth review, please click here.

Tonkotsu Kazan Ramen originates from Osaka Japan and they specialise in Hot Stone Ramen and Rice. Hot stone rice typical range from S$10.00 to S$12.00 and a hot stone ramen cost S$15.00 for a small and S$18.00 for a big size.

A small Kazan Kara Miso Ramen cost me S$15.00++ and i think this is good enough for two people (if you are not the super big eater kind) as apart from the noodle, it also comes with a bowl of rice. What i love about this ramen is – The broth and noodle remains piping hot for the whole time due to the hot stone bowl!
