    Not actually a true Japanese noodle shop but I like the duck meat cold soba from Kuriya at Raffles City.

    Well, i tried making Udon for my whole family last weekend and it was great fun. Getting the soup right is really hard though. For those who are keen, you should try cooking your own. It is pretty satisfying.

    As for the CS Ramen outing... it sounds like fun.

    ďAny good ramen, soba and udon in town?Ē Answered, thanks all of you for the info.

    ďTried a few so-so joint and hi-end japanese restaurant, nothing to shout about.Ē Have to rephrase my initial thought that thereís no good ramen shop in town. I didnít have a chance to find out or try them out. Now Iíve at least 3 decent ramen shops to visit, depending on my mood and taste.

    Tried Marutama last Thur, my very first visit to Central. Was surprised at a queue of 10 when I arrived at a very quiet shopping mall at 8.30. The wait isnít too long to get seated.

    The noodles are thin, could be better. The chicken broth is good but too rich and oily. Pricey with the additionals.

    It would be a great idea to have ramen outings. I'll be the first in line. Can someone organise it with dates and venues? Sharing experiences on ramen can be interesting.

    Hey guys, try Kadoman. Its located at level one, grand plaza hotel (the hotel next to Peneisular Plaza where Cathay Photo is). IIRC, 25 hour watch is opposite facing the small restaurant and St gregory spa next to it.

    Their tantan mian is quite nice. A set lunch is affordable (within $20). Dinner is more expensive though as there is no set. I have not been there for a couple years, but i often recommend friends to try them out for something authentic. (The miso soup is quite salty though, so be prepared).

    It used to have about 80% japanese patrons. But since most expatraits had left singapore, more local are partonising the restaurant.

    Just pulled out from yellow pages their tel: 63394333

    OK, just to be safe, YMMV

    Marutama:

    TOO SALTY!!! Everything oso too salty!
    The char siew is too salty
    The soup is too salty.
    The only thing good is the mustard like seaweed.

    Basically i will not recommend it to any one at all. I don't even understand why is there a Q to it.

    Wahh... you make the udon noodles yourself? Or just the soup?
    Want to post the recipe here? Might try it out when I find the time and mood.

    It's Baikohken.
    Drove pass on Fri evening, it's full including outdoor seatings. With no parking lot in sight, drove off for something else.
    With the Ramen write-up coming on Sunday Times tomorrow, there are going to be much more interests for the good Ramen outlets. Like in Tokyo, a queue is a constant sight outside good ramen shops.
