πŸ’¬ So I initially ate this bowl of noodles a couple of months back, but I was reluctant to post it because that was actually my first time eating halal ramen and it was not good, albeit the decent reviews online. I felt that it was unfair of me to judge without having tried other halal places yet, at least for a comparison before criticising. Now fast forward a few months and having tried others, it is safe to say that my previous criticism was not unwarranted. One of the key components of ramen would be the ramen noodles of course, and when the noodles are bad it is hard to salvage the meal. I do not know what happened but these noodles were soft, overcooked and the opposite of springy. Their texture reminded me of noodles from those Chinese lamian foodcourt stalls. The broth was also barely satisfactory, tasting rather mild even though it had this creamy look and milky flavour. The "Volcano" chilli was not spicy even at level 3, definitely underwhelming if you are a spice lover. The only thing I liked were the marinated minced chicken but I cannot justify paying $12 for that. Frankly, I am still rather hesitant in adding this into my ramen log as I did not feel like I actually ate ramen. However since they do call this Japanese ramen, it will therefore be rated as one.

πŸ₯’ Bejewelled with chunks of Japanese Snow Crab Meat in a Crab Carapace, a slice of Kurobuta Loin, Iberico Belly, Leek, Sour Cream and more Crab Meat in a Tomato PurΓ©e

πŸ’¬ Wow calling this broth rich is an understatement- the broth was so rich, it could call Elon Musk poor. Each sip was jam-packed with flavours; it was sweet, it was umami and very crab-y. Almost like I was drinking a crab instead of eating it, certainly a feast for your tastebuds. Up next, the ramen noodles; which were a little softer than what I would usually prefer, and they were also not very springy. However, it still does a good job trapping the broth in-between the strands, delivering that umami bomb right into your mouth. The crab meat and pork slices were all extremely delicate and tender, with the chashu breaking apart the moment I tried lifting it. There was also this tomato purΓ©e with minced crab meat and a blob of sour cream, which I assume were there to balance out the flavours of the broth. However after thoroughly mixing them up, I felt that it did not add much to the soup as perhaps intended. Have to admit the whole bowl was rather one dimensional but hey if you are a crab-lover like me, this bowl definitely hits the spot!

πŸ₯’ Tossed with Kombu, Truffle Oil and Truffle shavings, accompanied with caramelised Charshu and a sous vide Egg on top

πŸ’¬ The aroma of the truffle could be smelled even before I saw my bowl arrive. The noodles here were thin and had a great firm bite. Funnily, I must say they really took the "dry" part seriously as the noodles were all clumped up together. But this is where the perfectly sous vide-d egg comes in; break and watch the runny egg seep into the ramen, coating every strand with rich yolky creaminess. They were very generous with the kombu bits and truffle shavings as well. However I have to admit, it does get overwhelming really quickly with each bite being an explosion of truffle goodness. Now although the star of the show should be the truffles, but oh man, the caramelised pork was incredible! It was nicely charred with a blow torch and the deliciously burnt sugar was much needed to switch up the flavours.

can you tell that i like ramen
