After an enjoyable evening of watching the Voyage de la Vie @ Resorts World, I was hungry for something soupy and just happened to see a Ramen Play opposite the theatre. Perfect. Didn’t manage to take good pictures of the restaurant though as it was near closing time.
Nevertheless, we were in time to make the last order. The hubby had the Sanpou Tonkotsu Ramen ($14.80) which consisted of noodles with 3 types of pork meat – Toroniku (braised pork cheek), Cha Shu (braised pork belly in char siew sauce) and Butakakuti (braised pork belly in special sauce) – in a soup base that was simmered with pork sinew, soft pork bones and their secret recipe of spices for 12 hours. Topped with a half braised egg and some preserved bamboo shoots.
I had the Cha Shu Tonkotsu Ramen ($13.80) which had 5 slices of Cha Shu in it with braised egg and the same broth.
They claimed their noodles were hand massaged and indeed, the noodles had the right amount of springiness in them and were definitely Q to the bite. The soup base was excellent – could taste the essence and sweetness of the ingredients in them without the artificial flavourings or seasoning. Moreover, I didn’t feel thirsty at all after consuming the entire bowl of soup. The braised egg was done perfectly with the yolk a little runny. The meat was very tender too. Anyway, a good bowl of ramen lies in its soup base and this would be one of the few ramen outlets in Singapore that I’d strongly recommend.
You can end your meal with some cold refreshing non-sugared oolong tea that’s refillable at $1.20 per glass.
