The Ramen Stall’s opening hours caters especially to those dying for some late-night munchies. Tucked away at North Bridge Road, ramen options here differ on two ends of the spectrum from soup-based ones to dry ramen. The level of spiciness is also varied according to preference (and pain threshold).

For those who have a predilection for all things fiery, you have to try the Volcano Ramen. The broth is boiled for a whopping 30 hours and most definitely packs a great punch. Game for a challenge?
