Was supposed to head on over to Ricotti @ Clarke Quay for a spot of dinner – under ruse of hoping to take advantage of their 1:1 offer. Sadly when we arrived we found it wasn’t applicable for dinner so we racked our heads thinking where we can go and eat our fill. True to form the Chili Padi came up with the goods and we trekked our way over from Clarke Quay to the Gallery Hotel for some Ramen Lovin’
After walking for what felt like forever we reached Ramen nirvana; grabbed a seat inside (thank goodness we got there relatively early, the place does fill up rather quickly around 8).
The place must be doing something rite as they expanded their restaurant to a second little enclave at the base of the hotel and after tucking in to their Ramen I can understand why.
Pork Gyouzu - SGD6
The Chili Padi ordered the Miso Tonkotsu Ramen while I proceeded to order the Tokusen Tonshio Ramen, both equally yummy and equally delicious in their own ramen way!
Tokusen Tonshio Ramen – SGD12.50
Verdict: The ramen here is awesome, you definitely can taste the myriad of flavors swimming around in the stock while the noodles themselves were cooked just nice. Okay I was taking the piss out of it being Japanese spaghetti; to say that about a dish as good as this would do it an injustice. I have to say however that they could have given these two hungry travelers a little more pork with the ramen but hey, beggars can’t be choosers rite?
The Gyouzu was only so-so the meat stuffing was a little on the skimpy side but it was cooked to perfection, very crisp and crunchy to the bite. I do have to say though that the service staff there were left wanting at times, and the restaurant wasn’t that crowded when we were eating. But all in all it was a good dining experience, I would have loved to have washed it all down with a bottle of sapporo but I’m saving my eating and stomach space for Sydney!
