Browsing the menu at the entrance, the first thing I noticed was that for every ramen item, there is a mini version which cost S$3 to S$4 lesser.
The waitress was alert to my ignorance to the difference in Miso, Shoyu and Shio. She quickly explained the the three types of ramen available. Miso is fish stock flavored, Shoyu is brown soy sauce and shio is clear salt soup based.
There is a choice of curly original, flat or thin noodle.
I ordered Spicy Miso Ramen with curly original noodle while Stella went for the mini Shoyu with thin noodle.
Is there a difference in the noodles? The preferred original is soft and springy while the thin noodle is a little hard.
What’s missing in the photo is the meat slice and the egg.
I should have scooped out the meat and placed it on top of the noodles for this photo shoot or otherwise it should have been done that way in the first place because it is the delicious-looking slice of meat in the menu that attracted me.
The missing egg was an interesting discovery. They have a promotion going on where you can get free servings of eggs and rice. I grabbed 2 eggs. They were lovely with soft oozing bright yolks.
The soup is thick with ingredients you can chew on.
The slice of meat passed my taste test but not the size. (I am unfairly comparing it what I got in Hokkaido and in the ex-iluma mall)
Did I enjoy the meal? 4 stars out of 5.
