Our favourite type of men is RAMEN. This awesome noodle dish has everything you could ever ask for — tender fragrant cha shu, gooey lava egg, springy noodles and irresistible broth. Repeat after us: ramen is life.
Sadly, ramen isn’t the cheapest. One bowl could easily set you back by S$15 or more. But, finding one that’s both affordable and good isn’t an impossible task. In fact, we’ve found 10!
Singapore actually has quite a number of eateries and stalls that do great ramen priced below S$10. Some of these places are even run by Japan-trained cooks, so you can expect ramen of superb quality.
Takagi Ramen, located just a short walk away from Ang Mo Kio Hub, is our new go-to spot for innovative, flavoursome and affordable bowls of ramen—here’s why.
Run by a team of Singaporeans with a mad passion for the craft, every dish is fastidiously prepared, ensuring that every single bowl of ramen that leaves the kitchen is guaranteed to possess maximum flavour with just the right texture.
Ang Mo Kio may not be the first to come to mind when one thinks of authentic ramen, but little did we realise—having chanced upon this humble hole-in-a-wall—that it is indeed very possible to find great food (that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg) in even the most unassuming of places.

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.
When it comes to proper comfort food, especially on cold rainy days, there is none quite as hearty as a bowl of hot ramen. Yet, for something so simple—just hot soup, simple ingredients and noodles—restaurants in Singapore often overcharge for it.
Nestled in the heartland of Kovan along the same row as popular Thai eatery, Nakhon Kitchen is Gonpachi Ramen. At this humble ramen joint, you can expect gorgeous bowls of restaurant-standard ramen that will not cost you more than S$8.
Using freshly imported ingredients from Japan, Gonpachi Ramen serves traditional Japanese ramen, delectable rice bowls and small dishes with a blend of local flavours. This is a joint you should definitely visit for top-notch comfort food at pocket-friendly prices.
