It has been a while since my last visit to Holland Village, and I was pleasantly surprised to see a couple of new faces. My list of restaurants in Holland Village is slightly outdated now, I will be updating it soon.
Anyway, our main objective that night was 2am Dessert Bar, so we decided to have a light dinner at Yoshimaru Ramen Bar.
Yoshimaru Ramen Bar is famous for their Hakata Ramen, or known as Tonkotsu (pork bone) Ramen. I don’t really know much about ramen, but from what I understand, the broth for Tonkotsu ramen is made from boiling pork bones over high heat for many hours. The result is hearty pork flavoured soup with ultra thin ramen.
I had the Traditional Hakata Ramen ($11), and it was excellent. With a gorgeous runny boiled egg and the mouth-watering char siu, the bowl of rich and flavourful ramen was the perfect thing for a rainy night.
We also had the Shabu-shabu Pork Ramen ($14), which came with thin pork slices instead of char siu. There are a few choices on Yoshimaru Ramen Bar’s menu, you can also go for the Moridakusen Ramen ($15) which has all the toppings, or the spicy Yoshimaru Tan Tan Mian with peanut sauce and chilli oil.
My favourite ramen places in Singapore are still Tampopo restaurant and Ramen Santouka, but Yoshimaru Ramen Bar is a pretty decent place to have a quick dinner if you are at Holland Village. And oh yes, just in case you are interested, the Japanese Ramen Bar is under the same management as Jumbo Seafood Restaurant.
