    It seemed like we've a ramen fanclub on clubsnap!
    Waraku is one of the few outlets that I would visit again. Soba is good, ramen is not bad.
    I've a craving for good ramen, I'll be very angry if it's so-so. Addicted to the real stuff in Japan. On my last few visits to Tokyo, I had stayed in the ramen town of Ikebukuro. Tried almost all the great ones.
    Another addiction is the standing soba, cheap and good. I'll have it in exchange for the buffet breakfast everytime.

    Hi the famous sapporo ramen has come to Singapore already. The chef is from the branch in ESTA sapporo. Their miso ramen is to me. Its near the UOB building in raffles at the range of shophouses opposite the macdonalds there.

    For soba i still prefer the one at Tonkatsu at Lido/Isetan there but they dun sell it during normal days. The soba left me a deep impression when i had it during a promotion then. Only the soba i tried in Japan can rival theirs. Interestingly there is a specialised soba shop in paragon but that one i dun really like it.

    A newly open called Baikohken at North Canal Rd (Opposite OCBC Building / in front of Circular Rd). Famous Ramen shop from Sapporo.

    Yet to try but according to feedback from my many colleagues, it is good.

    Sounds good, die-die must try. My first addiction to ramen was a huge bowl of Sapporo ramen some 25 years ago. Ken noodle shop had always been my favourite, getting a bit sick of it. Must share notes, armed with this new list of info, have to re-rate my taste, have to watch my waist and cholesterols.

    Great thread! Been looking for a great place for authentic ramen ever since I fell in love with it in Japan. Have not tried any of the places mentioned here but 'soba so good' at paragon basement is a tasty place to eat if you're out shopping around orchard and need a break!

    yah.. i vote for Waraku as well. Affordable yet quality food and good service. I usually go to the outlet at Central - great view of Clark Quay.

    I agree the standard of Japanese noodles in restaurants isnt too good. Why dont you try making your own? Ok not really make your own but instant version. E.g. those instant cold soba packets in most japanese supermarkets are easy to make and tasty as well..

    Armed with this info, I made my way down for a late lunch yesterday. Field report:
    At 2.45pm, I was the only customer till I left at 3.10. Sat at the counter and observed the preparation of my ramen. The aircon was probably lowered, with the heat from the kitchen and the hot soup and ramen, I was trenched after souping up the bowl when I left.
    Typical ramen shops do not serve everything like Waraku, at best a gyoza (dumplings) or rice as side dish. The menu is simple with a few options, soyu, salt and miso. Ordered a miso char-siu ramen and got served after 10 mins. The miso soup is tasty, distinct taste of pork bones and with a layer of oil floating in the bowl. The noodles is thin to my disappointment, lacked the springy bite thatís typical of ramen. More like Kiusu style, with a very Tokyo taste. The thick slices of char-siu were cooked to perfection with an unbelievable generous serving. On the counter, thereís a tray of seasonings and flavours, even the ice-water container and cup used reminded me of the typical ramen shops in Japan.
    Very full and satisfying meal, gave dinner a miss in the evening. Itís the not the best that Iíve ever tried, but very good as itís in Singapore. I planned on trying the soyu and salt on my next trip.
    The average bowl starts at $11-12, I paid $16.30 (+GST) for my miso ramen. 800yen ($10) will get you a very good bowl in Tokyo, itís pricey going by our living standard. For the craving, it's worthy.

    One of the best ramen places here. The first time I went there, there were so many japanese in it that I thought I was in Japan.
    Tried that on Monday, I like their noodle (the texture), soup (rich, but not thirsty feeling afterward) and char siu (soft with some fermented soy taste). But wify don't quite like the price
