Ramen Keisuke Tonkotsu King Four Seasons @ Bugis Village

Category : Japanese

As shared in my earlier post on NanTsuTtei Ramen @ Orchard Central, Ramen Keisuke Tonkotsu King Four Seasons @ Bugis Village is currently our favourite Japanese Ramen Restaurant in Singapore.

Thanks to the great recommendation from our Japanese friend 🙂

Queuing is a norm here and you’ll only be seated when everyone in your party has arrived. Free Japanese barley tea is also thoughtfully provided for folks waiting in the queue too.

Ramen Keisuke Tonkotsu King Four Seasons 10

As you can tell from the restaurant name, the theme here is four seasons. You can choose from a variety of Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter & King Ramen here at Ramen Keisuke Tonkotsu King Four Seasons 😀

I’ve tried both Autumn (Pork minced with bonitos flavor & Fried mixed mushroom) @ S$12.90

And Winter (Pork broth Ramen) @ S$10.90.

While both are nice, I prefer Autumn as it’s more intense in flavor while Winter a little lighter in flavor for me.

Besides choosing the type of Ramen, there are also options to top up S$1 to include Japanese seaweed, S$2 for a Japanese flavoured egg or S$4 to include all toppings.

Ramen is served pretty quickly and you can grind the sesame seeds to powder or start on the free marinated bean sprouts and boiled eggs while waiting. Never a dull moment 😉

Looking at the photos, I’m missing and craving for Ramen Keisuke Tonkotsu King Four Seasons already! Time to plan a trip down to Bugis Village *slurp*

NanTsuTtei Ramen @ Orchard Central

Category : Japanese

I was super excited when I saw NanTsuTtei Ramen’s logo displayed outside Orchard Central.

I couldn’t resist snapping a photo of it to share and say, let’s go try and see if it’s the same as what we had in NanTsuTtei Ramen @ Siam Paragon Bangkok.

So understandably when the opportunity arises, I was elated queuing outside NanTsuTtei Ramen @ Orchard Central, and settled for a bar top seat as every other table is filled!

This must be a good sign right.

Unlike NanTsuTtei Ramen @ Siam Paragon Bangkok, NanTsuTtei Ramen @ Orchard Central does not have discounted mini Ramen. So do take note, your mini Ramen costs the same as the regular Ramen. In that case, of course we’ll go for the latter right.

First impression, NanTsuTtei Orchard Central’s presentation of their condiments & utensils isn’t as good as their Siam Paragon counterpart, who has everything neatly displayed in a nifty organiser.

And here comes the highlight of the evening. NanTsuTtei ChaShu Ramen @ S$16 with an Ajitsuke Tamago (Flavored Boiled Egg) @ S$1.5.

Followed by NanTsuTtei Maru-toku Negi ChaShu Ramen @ S$17 which is essentially NanTsuTtei ChaShu Ramen with all the toppings – ShiRaGa NeGi, BanNou NeGi & ChaShu.

I was disappointed.

NanTsuTtei Orchard Central’s Ramen is a far cry from NanTsuTtei Siam Paragon Bangkok’s Ramen. Their soup base is lackluster and the Ramen is overcooked with a soggy texture 🙁

For comparison’s sake, we also ordered NanTsuTtei’s Fried Chicken Karaage with wasabi mayo tartar sauce @S$6.

Once again, disappointed.

Presentation aside, NanTsuTtei Orchard Central’s Fried Chicken Karaage tastes like any other chicken cutlet with some random sauce.

And to top it all off, NanTsuTtei Ramen is expensive.

There are cheaper and better Ramen like our current favourite Ramen Place – Ramen Keisuke Tonkotsu King Four Seasons @ Bugis Village.
