I've heard about this ramen place in Tanjong Pagar.. that people queue for hours just to have a taste of its famous offering. And from hearsay, I had wanted to try it for myself to see if it's as good as most people say. I got the chance yesterday when my colleagues and I ended up in this area (after our original plan of eating somewhere else).

It was about 1pm when we had our lunch, and there was no queue. I was a bit surprised because I actually expected to wait for about an hour just to get a table inside the very small resto space. Once you enter, it will seem like a different era with Japanese songs being played over and over, Japanese calligraphy, newspaper clippings posted on the walls.

We were given papers where we could customise our orders. I chose the spicy ramen with all toppings (egg, fungus, etc). Orders arrived within 15 minutes, which was a good thing. I didnt realise till I sat inside that I was starving. Anyway on first sip, the soup was all spice without any hint of pork broth for me. It was rather disappointing.

There was a generous chunk of beef slices and noodles. But the soup was the most important thing for me. Maybe my expectations were so high that my ramen experience was just meh.
