If there’s one food trend that has never died down, it is Japanese Green Tea – Matcha. In every cafe, you’re 90% likely to see a Matcha Latte or a Matcha-infused dessert somewhere on the menu. However, we would like to introduce you to Matcha’s just-as-delicious but less-talked-about counterpart – Hojicha.
Hojicha is kind of roasted green tea that carries a strong toasty, smoky flavour that is super delicious and earthy. It’s a unique flavour that you won’t forget once you try it! So here’s a list of the best Hojicha desserts in Singapore that will get you hooked onto this underrated flavour.
Don Meijin is a new donburi eatery at Ramen Champion Bugis+ that has been making waves on social media. You can find quite a range of donburi including Jumbo Chicken Katsu Don (S$13.80), Unagi Don (S$18.80), as well as the signature Spicy Chilli Crab Tendon (S$14.80)—a unique combination of chilli crab sauce over crispy tempura.
I first knew of Keisuke Tokyo Ramen at Parco Marina Bay when I went to Nantsuttei Ramen for lunch. One of my favourite hobbies is to read restaurants’ menu, and I remember that they had an ebi-based broth (not Shio, not tonkatsu, not shoyu) ramen when I took a glance at their menu.
A while back, I went to Keisuke Tokyo for lunch, specifically for their award-winning ebi ramen, only to find out that they’ve removed it from the menu late last year.
Is Keisuke Tokyo still worth going? Is Keisuke Tokyo the best ramen restaurant in Singapore? Just how good exactly is Keisuke Tokyo to win the prestigious title of Ramen King in TV Tokyo’s Ramen Champion Series?
