10 Best Restaurants for Slurping-good Ramen in Singapore

1. Ramen Keisuke, for different ramen concepts in every branchRamen Keisuke Best Restaurants for Slurping-good Ramen in Singapore

Source: Ramen KeisukeOwned by the famous Ramen King, Mr Keisuke Takeda, one can only expect the best from Ramen Keisuke. Right now, it has a total of 22 outlets all over the island, each with its own unique dining concept, making Ramen Keisuke one of the biggest ramen chains in Singapore. Make sure that you try to visit every outlet since there are usually menu items that are exclusive to certain branches. For instance, Ramen Keisuke Lobster King at Clarke Quay previously offered a French-inspired lobster bisque ramen, which is just oh la la in a bowl. 

Aside from the slurping-good ramen, what we love the most about Ramen Keisuke is that it offers free-flowing hardboiled eggs for every main dish that you order. Moreover, this ramen restaurant is not all about ramen. Their hamburg steak is also an absolute must-try!

2. Takagi Ramen, for ramen for the average Singaporean

For affordable yet delicious ramen in Singapore, Takagi Ramen is the place to be. The restaurant’s slogan itself says that the ramen they offer is for the average Singaporean, so you can get already get a bowl of ramen goodness for as low as 5 SGD. We suggest that you try their Takagi Ramen, the restaurant’s namesake, which is basically Hakata-style firm ramen noodles in an original Japanese Tonkotsu (pork bone) broth. Every slurp is already a delight, but if you want to go all-in with the Japanese flavours, you should also get a plate of gyoza to go with your ramen bowl. Don’t worry, even if you get a side dish, rest assured that you’d still have a change on your 10 SGD bill.

If you have a big appetite, then maybe you can try the Giant Mazesoba Challenge at Ramen Matsuri. Basically, you have to finish a large bowl that consists of 5 portions of Mazesoba dry ramen and rice in 20 minutes. Else, you’d pay around 35 SGD, which is still less to the original price of 5 portions of Mazesoba. If you are not up for a challenge, you can still enjoy flavourful ramen (with or without soup!) in this restaurant. Also, make sure to watch out for their creative spins on the traditional Japanese noodles, like the Italian Mazesoba they released just a few weeks ago.

Another great place in Singapore to get your Mazesoba fix is Menya Kokoro. Mazesoba is “mixing ramen” in Japanese, so you get to literally mix bouncing ramen noodle with flavoured rich meat sauce, flowy Onsen eggs, and other garnishes. And with Menya Kokoro, you will enjoy a wide variety of Mazesoba dishes. There’s a bowl for every palate –  from curry-flavoured to cheesy noodles to even a vegan option! Hence, it is not so surprising that they were the recipient of the Best Ramen and Mazesoba award in Japan’s most prestigious ramen awards.

When it comes to ramen, tonkotsu is probably something that we all like. Who doesn’t love pork broth, right? At Kanada-ya, you can satisfy all your cravings for tonkotsu. What’s more, is that they offer more creative spins on the traditional tonkotsu, like their best-selling truffle ramen. A Japanese and French fusion in a bowl – it is definitely a must-try. But make sure that you drop by their outlets early since the Truffle ramen is limited to 20 bowls a day. If you visit late, no worries, Kanada-ya has plenty of other ramen offerings, as well as tasty rice meals that will surely transport you to the Land of the Rising Sun.

Ramen Bar Suzuki is another ramen restaurant that specialises in the amazing tonkotsu. They have all sorts of tonkotsu recipes – from sakura pink ramen to scarlet tonkotsu ramen to a whiskey infused ramen! What’s also great is that they offer free signature side dishes (potato salad, beansprouts, boiled eggs) to go with your bowl of hot ramen. Additionally, Ramen Bar Suzuki is somehow a literal bar as they also have alcoholic drinks to keep you warmer on colder nights.

8. Marutama Ramen, for one of the best chicken-based ramens

Other than pork, chicken-based broth is the most sought-after flavour when it comes to ramen. Although they are not usually as flavourful as pork-based ramen, Marutama Ramen does it just right. Their chicken baitan soup is not something you would find in other ramen restaurants in Singapore, and it is always nice to have a change from the usual pork-based Japanese noodles. Furthermore, the chicken broth is made even better with the addition of raw Thai chili, which brings a certain dimension and spiciness to your bowl.

9. Nantsuttei, for a variety of ramen toppings

Nantsuttei is well-hidden in Orchard Road, so there’s a huge chance that you haven’t heard of this gem yet. We wonder why, as Nantsuttei is the home to one of the best creamy pork bone soups on the island (in other SEA countries as well!). Also, this ramen restaurant offers a wide array of ramen toppings on its menu, giving you more reasons to visit over and over again. Make sure that you say “Gochisouma!” after your meal, a customary tradition in Japan after eating ramen, so you can go all Japanese!

Lastly, there’s no best ramen restaurant list without the presence of the world-famous IPPUDO. This ramen joint has 9 branches in Singapore alone, so you can expect umami goodness in every slurp. For first-timers, we suggest that you try IPPUDO’s global standard for ramen – the Shiromaru Motoaji. A classic Hakata-style ramen, it’s everything we want in a bowl. The soup is creamy, the pork flavour is intense, the noodles are tasty and thin- definitely slurping-good ramen! You can also check out IPPUDO’s Singapore exclusives like the Niku Soba and Kuro Ramen.
