I was there for an early dinner. And, there was just another table there. I went to the counter and presented the voucher that i acquired online to the person there. I was told to refer to the menu and completed the order chit. I was asked to choose any of those items listed. He suggested i might want to consider choosing one bowl with their signature pork ribs and other bowl with Charsu as the voucher is for 2 servings. I was asked to help myself with 2 canned of soft drinks from the fridge. I decided on a bowl of Spicy Chilli Boss Rib Ramen ($14.90) and Boss Rib Ramen ($13.90). I was asked to get a tray and placed it on the counter. Self-service is expected thus no service charge and GST. I waited at the counter. The Spicy Chilli Boss Rib Ramen served first in minutes followed by the nicely grilled pork ribs. It was a little faster than expected. The presentation was pretty neat. It was served with a piece of seaweed, flavored egg, bamboo shoots and garnished with bits of chopped spring onions before served. Though it indicated in the menu that this was a bowl of spicy ramen but i could not quite taste the spiciness. Though the color was in bright red but the level of spiciness tasted rather comforting. The flavored egg was cooked just right to give the egg yolk a nice orangy color with just the right softness. The Boss Rib Ramen served right after. It served with a piece of seaweed, flavored egg and bamboo shots just like the other bowl that served earlier. The broth tasted just fine though the general taste was not too distinctive. There is no option given to select the level of seasoning to customize the taste of it. The taste somewhat reminded me a bit of Ajisen Ramen. It was acceptable though not distinctly outstanding. As there is no option to select the doneness of the ramen, it was a slightly softer with little springiness for both bowls of ramen. I would prefer it to be a slightly al dente to give it a better texture with a nicer chewiness. To enhance its taste, white and black sesame seeds were provided in a grinder. To grind it, you gotta use both hands. One of them is supposed to stable it by holding onto the base of the grinder then using the other hands to turn the tip on its cover to crush the sesame seeds a bit before added into the noodle. The star gotta be the grilled pork ribs. It was slow-cooked to achieve the delightful softness before applied the sauce then grilled it to perfection. It was then garnished with bits of sesame seeds and served with a handful of chopped lettuce aside. The softness of the meat managed to amaze me quite a bit as i did not expect it to be this good. It was done perfectly to retain the tenderness of its texture. The meat pulled away effortlessly from the bone when bite upon. A someone from a particular forum even described the pork ribs as heavenly. If you could not decide whether to have grilled pork ribs or Japanese Ramen then this is the right place to be as you could have the Japanese Ramen with pretty good grilled pork ribs. And, this probably is the only place in Singapore serving pork ribs with ramen for now.An interesting find. Though the ramen and the broth tasted only just fine but the delectable pork ribs are worthy of the experience. continue reading

On 9th October 2013 was the first opening day of this Singaporean opened Japanese Ramen Restaurant called Buta Ramen.They were having a promotion today whereby the first 300 customers get to eat free, worth about $15. I was there early at about 11am and get to table table in a short while. The staffs were very friendly to introduce their menu offerings and also told customers to self take their unlimited serving of condiments, cooked bean spourt and hard boiled eggs.I had ordered the Black Garlic Chashu Ramen but got delivered the wrong order of Black Garlic Boss Rib Ramen.When the Black Garlic Boss Rib Ramen came to my table, I could smell the heavy aroma of garlic oil soup base. However, the taste of soup was overly covered by the garlic oil, I could not taste the pork based soup.The noodles were same as other Japanese Ramen Stalls, cooked just right with a bit of springy taste.The Boss Pork Ribs tasted much liked western honey ribs. The Pork Ribs was very tender and soft, even the bones were soft. The meat could easily peeled of from the bones.Overall, the Pork Ribs was good comparable to Morganfield's ones. For the Ramen, the taste was average. continue reading
