Fluffy egg on rice which looks way too appetising with surprise pork bits beneath. A small bowl but honestly very worth it if you’re not a big eater and want to order more sides. While the egg was indeed fluffy and slightly runny, the entire bowl lacked flavour. But for the price and the free condiments they give at the side - chilli powder, mayonnaise, and even bean sprouts, you can easily solve the problem to make a whole new dish of your own!

The soft shell crab also got me hankering for a nice drink, and Konjiki Hotogisu just happens to have a very fetching Gekkeikan Nigori Cloudy Sake on standby. It’s sweet, rich and thick for a sake, and it’s definitely a capable partner to the light clam broth. More interestingly was the little sampler of special clam rice that isn’t even on the menu that they served with our sake. Honestly, if they served full portions of that stellar special clam rice, I’d gladly pay top dollar for it, and I’d be absolutely addicted to it. It’s subtly but undeniably umami, it’s unctuous, it’s fresh and it’s tremendously tasty.

I don’t remember what broth @konjikihototogisu used for the Chili Crab Ramen ($19.90++ a bowl, but I do remember it being different to the clam broth. It might’ve been a standard pork bone broth considering its richness, and it’s still a robust broth despite not being as unique as the clam broth.⠀

The same springy thin ramen is topped with a slice of servicable chashu, and a whole soft shell crab that’s jazzed up with copious dollops of chili crab sauce. Ideally you’d wanna fish the soft shell crab out of the ramen the minute it’s served to preserve the crunch of the soft shell crab, but you do wanna mix some of that charming chili crab sauce into the ramen for a spicy & sour kick. The chili crab sauce is egg-cellently eggy, tangy and sufficiently sweet, making it a perfect pair with the crunchy soft shell crab. Konjiku Hotogisu’s Chili Crab Ramen hits every major flavour & texture, and I’m getting hit with cravings for seconds of this.

We’ve had pork broth, chicken broth, seafood broth and even the occasional fish broth ramen in Singapore, but how about clam broth? @konjikihototogisu is a Michelin Starred ramen restaurant that has its Singapore outpost run by the same company that runs Ajisen, and the clam broth is its unique selling point.⠀

There are two choices for the clam broth, shoyu (soy sauce) and shio (salt). I chose the Shio Hamaguri Soup Ramen ($15.90++), which has chashu & ramen immersed into the clam & pork bone broth, and garnished with porcini duxelle and white truffle oil. The clam broth is notably lighter than a standard all pork bone broth, but there is still some weight & richness to it due to the inclusion of some pork bones. It’s subtly sweet & briny from the hamaguri clams (Asian hard clam), and it’s a light but still tasty broth. The porcini duxelle adds earthiness & umami to the ramen, while the heady perfume of white truffle oil will intoxicate your sense of smell.⠀

The thin noodles are cooked perfectly with a delightful bite to them, but the chashu was completely unremarkable. Still, at well under twenty bucks, this light bowl of ramen would do solid work as a hangover remedy.

This is certainly closer to balestier than novena! Was glad to have been recommended this ramen, with gao gao thick delicious soup! Anniversary special $10+ $2 egg + 3 gyoza and green tea set. I couldn’t take most of the chashu cos I don’t take fatty meat but what I could eat was delicious! The gyoza was also pretty amazing, one of the few times when fried gyoza surprised me by being tender and soft! And what a pretty ceramic cup! Really wonder what these flecks are… is it collagen? Someone enlighten me!

The food is nice but cleanliness failed as a Ramen restaurant, price around $8-$15/ pax excluded drinks

Their Special Shio Ramen is well-balanced - flavourful yet clean with a nuanced saltiness that doesn't overwhelm your tastebuds or leave you thirsty. It goes really well with their toothsome noodles, and I cleared the entire bowl without realising it. 😅 More importantly, these thick char siu slices adorning the bowl be BUSSIN' HARD! Every slice is not overly fatty and takes on a soft, melt-in-the-mouth consistency, with the rich meaty flavours intensified by a smoky caramelisation from the blowtorch. It's so SHIO-k that I wouldn't mind dropping by for a 2nd bowl despite being a Westie! 🍜

Initially, I was a little skeptical about having mayonnaise in my mazesoba but the Mentai Mayo Mazesoba ($17.80) actually worked.

There is a generous amount of mentaiko and it goes very well with the mayo. The mayo added creaminess to the noodles but it was surprisingly subtle. A squirt of vinegar helps to balance out the richness. The chashu is soft and the noodles is firm, and together with bamboo shoots, egg and spring onion, this is one satisfying bowl of mazesoba.
