There is just something so inviting about a hot bowl of rich and nourishing ramen and it is one of our go-to comfort foods whenever we need a perk me up especially on wet gloomy days in Singapore. But it is hard to find a sumptuous bowl of ramen that comes at a reasonable figure and this is why Ramen Hitoyoshi should be your next dining destination.
Ramen Hitoyoshi is a 2-month old restaurant in Harbourfront Centre that all ramen lovers need to know. Brought to you by a partnership between local chefs Ray and Tan who have a breadth of experience in various dining establishments including Keisuke Ramen, Ramen Hitoyoshi’s menu features a selection of affordable yet tasty ramen options starting from S$10.90, and diners also have the opportunity to customise their own ramen.
Ramen Hitoyoshi focuses on Tonkotsu ramen in three varieties namely garlic, original and spicy. Aside from picking the variant of Tonkotsu broth for their ramen, diners can also choose the intensity of the taste of the soup, the amount of oil in their ramen, the thickness and texture of the ramen noodles.
And for those who need a little something to nibble on before receiving their order, Ramen Hitoyoshi provides containers of marinated bean sprouts and corn on each table to temporarily sate your hunger.
The Tonkotsu (S$10.90) comes with a piece of Chashu, black fungus, spring onion and a generous portion of ramen noodles. Our first impression of the Tonkotsu was the high viscosity of the soup; that would only mean that it must be chock full of flavour, right?
Well, yes. The thick and creamy Tonkotsu broth was oh so satisfying and we felt that for S$10.90, it was a steal. As for the Chashu, you may feel slightly disappointed when you see a singular piece but throw away all of such judgment because the meat was tender and had a melt-in-the-mouth texture.
Spicy Tonkotsu with Ajitamago (S$13.90) was another dish we enjoyed. Like the Tonkotsu, it had the same ingredient makeup except for the addition of chilli oil, Ajitamago and a scoop of spicy minced pork. For us, we did not feel that the broth was particularly spicy but it further enriched the taste of the broth.
