Ramen Santouka

Authentic Hokkaido ramen can finally be tasted in Singapore!

The restaurant is very small, with about 10 tables, housing around 30 people at a time. But they take your orders while you’re queuing, so the food comes quite quickly. People also eat quite fast, and leave quickly. There isn’t much variety of ramen that you can choose from. However you can choose to upsize your ramen or to order with some rice as a set.

1. Curry Kara Miso – $18.50 – This was what I ordered! The kara miso wasn’t that spicy, but the broth was thick and flavourful. The stingy piece of char siu was very well cooked. The noodles were quite well-done, but could have been more springy. The curry that accompanied the rice was not outstanding. It only contained a few pieces of chicken. The rice was authentic Japanese rice. YUMMY! This ramen can be rated very good in Singapore, but the one I ate at the Ramen Museum in Tokyo was much much better. Not that bad to get your fix of Hokkaido ramen in Singapore!

2. Char Siu Rice Miso – $17.50 – Jiehui ordered this. She said it was salty.

3. Chicken Shoyu – $22 – CP and Von ordered this. They also said the ramen was too salty.

4. Komi-Tamago – $1 – We all ordered an egg each. The egg was cooked in an excellent manner – the yolk was molten as you can see! VERY VERY yummy yolk. However, the egg was quite bland with only a slight tinge of shoyu.

Prices exclude 10% service charge and 7% GST.
