One of the best ramen places in Singapore

The most defining element of their ramen would be their thick broth, simmered with pork trotters over high heat for quite a number of hours. Their signature Tonkotso ramen has a rich buttery texture, and an intense flavour. It was sinfully pleasurable just slurping down the delicious broth (but it got a little oily for my liking afterwards). 

The handful of thinly sliced green onions and cloud ear mushroom was a breath of freshness when the buttery flavour gets slightly overwhelming. I especially enjoyed the soft-yolked soy-sauce tinged egg. The char siew pork belly was also extremely tender. Of course their ramen noodles were nicely bouncy and squiggly.

I loved the grinding of the sesame seeds.

Service was efficient.

Most ppl would be familiar with the big ramen names in singapore like Ramen Play (which is overrated btw), Muratama, Ramen King etc

This place is a hidden gem in Holland V, the broth is amazing, the flavor is totally not what you were prepared for no matter how often you eat ramen. The noodles are done to a perky perfection. This is the best ramen ever!!!

The best part? THE PRICE!! Its so affordable compared to overpriced places elsewhere!

There are way too many good Ramen places in Singapore. Sadly, this isn't one of my favourites. Squeezy and small, you can hear the conversation next table quite clearly.I bought a deal coupon, (or perhaps that's the reason why the food wasn't good?) and only had one choice- Creamy Black Sesame Pork Ramen ($12.80). We were first served with a bowl of sesame to crush by hand, something like Tonkichi's.Of Hakata ramen, it is a distinctive ultra thin ramen with a film texture, served in a rich in iron, magnesium and vitamins B and E, using roasted black sesame seeds to enhance their flavor and aroma. The char siew was well-marinated and is the star of the dish, pretty generous as well. However, the soup killed everything. DO NOT ORDER THE SPICY SOUP. It tastes extremely different from the non-spicy one. If you do, be prepared to drink lots of water, or love it because you're a spice lover!It isn't fair to just mark this place down because of one dish, but sadly, if the purpose of having a deal coupon is perhaps just to earn some money with a badly thought-through of dish and not gaining awareness, then my experience would have been better if I had order the other full-priced menu dishes...

Enjoy slurping up some good ramen in the cozy space of the Yoshimaru Ramen Bar which we love for its perfectly silky boiled eggs and thick, delicious broth. If you are feeling super hungry, order your ramen in a set meal that comes with a selection of sides that should satisfy your tummy rumblings.

Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
