[SINGAPORE] Hakata Ikkousha @ CHIJMES

Always a fan of Japanese food and a big thanks to Hakata Ikkousha for the awesome food served as this authentic Japanese ramen restaurant has invaded Singapore with their second outlet at CHIJMES, which their first stand-alone eatery is at Tanjong Pagar.

” The Ikkousha brand name gained attention in Singapore when it beat out other ramen purveyors to emerge Singapore’s Ultimate Ramen Champion 2011. It defended its title successfully for the 2012 championship. On top of sales figures—Ikkousha sold twice the number of bowls of ramen than its closest competitor both years—the winner of the competition was decided by votes from the public through Facebook and the competition’s website. “

This would be one of my favourite as Hakata Ikkousha is serving one of the best broths for ramen. The Tonkotsu broth is rich and the broth had gone through 12 hours of boiling as the secret lies in the change of pork bone during the boiling. The soup is made individually in the store and made by the Master Chef who is trained by Yoshimura San. Therefore, the method and guidance provided to Master Chef are all the same which taught in Fukuoka.

Black Tonkotsu ($13.50) is one of the 6 flavours offered by Hakata Ikkousha. This method of slow-cooking draws rich, skin-smoothing collagen into the delicious broth. photo 20140624_145044_zpsaf3df91b.jpg photo 20140624_145110_zps8dec8cfe.jpg photo 20140624_145044_zpsaf3df91b.jpg

Another highlight at Hakata Ikkousha would be the flavoured egg ($2.00). A must try item when you pay a visit. photo 20140624_153131_zpsd779cfef.jpg
