I have heard so much about Ikkousha Ramen (CHIJMES) but I never got the chance to try it out until now.
Ikkousha Ramen specializes in tonkotsu ramen which is a speciality of Hakata, Fukuoka. You can find the full menu here.
This is Ikkousha Ramen’s signature Tonkotsu Special [S$17/S$16]. Thin noodles accompany thick creamy pork bone broth made by boiling pork bones over many hours. This bowl has all the ingredients – pork cha-shu, flavored egg, fungus and spring onions.
The pork broth is not quite as thick as Ramen Keisuke Tonkotsu King, but the creamy broth fills my stomach and warms me up.
Bonito Ramen [S$14.50/S$13.50] is a speciality ramen here. The broth is a combination of chicken, bonito and tonkotsu which gives it a distinct flavor. The thin noodles are accompanied by pork cha-shu, bamboo shoots, seaweed and spring onions.
Hakata Speciality Hitokuchi Gyoza [S$5.80/5 pieces] is another speciality of this restaurant. I personally feel that the gyoza are a little too salty but the accompanying yuzu sauce gives the gyoza a nice tangy contrast.
