The well-known Ramen Chain has finally made it’s entrance to Singapore. Ramen Kagetsu Arashi, the Ramen Chain that has garner tremendous support and patronage in Taiwan and Japan will not fail to satiate your cravings for Ramen. Having 290 outlets worldwide, Ramen Kagetsu Arashi is here aiming to seize a first placing in Singapore. Their “Kagetsu Ramen” in particular, represents more than 100 creative flavours for you to relish. Today, Ramen Kagetsu Arashi brings you two other delectable dishes: Ginjiro Ramen and Itameshi Dry Curry Rice.
The Ginjiro Ramen ($13.90) can be said to be a very time-consuming dish. Pork bones are simmered over long hours in order to obtain the thick and non-artificial sweetness for its broth. Exclusive ingredients like dried bonito, kelp and some others are included in to enhance the flavoursome goodness. Undoubtedly, this Ginjiro Katgetsu Ramen is sure to be packed with rich collagen from the long hours simmering.
I find the texture of the noodles very well done (not too hard or soggy), even after we took a little while to shoot some photos. Generally, the broth isn’t too salty like how Ramen usually is. The most evident difference is also the choice of hard-boil eggs instead of soft-boiled. To explain the intention behind, Ramen Kagetsu would prefer hard-boiled eggs in order to avoid the soft-boiled eggs from affecting the taste of the broth. Thoughtful!
To promote customization to your own likings, Ramen Kagetsu encourages you to add in condiments at your own preference to add oomph to the dishes. The 4 condiments are Black Pepper, Kagetsu’s secret soy sauce, Kagetsu’s special in-house seasoned chives andfreshly crushed garlic by using their own unique press tool.
The Dry Curry Fried Rice ($12.90) on the other hand is a new addition to Ramen Kagetsu’s menu. A selection of premium spices are stirred and blended into the hotplate of fried rice, giving a flavourful relish. Fret not about the level of spiciness as it’s pretty average. To bring out the aroma, the rice is also scorched to give an extra crispy texture too. To top if off, find yourself a layer of fried egg and some sausages which you can stir fry together with the dry curry rice.
The smoky aroma certainly perks up diners’ appetites as it was served. The Japanese rice grains are very soft and fragrant as well, which sums up a very decent base for the Dry Curry Fried Rice.
Another common dish is none other than Japanese Gyoza ($6). This set of Gyoza is encased in crispy pastry skin filled with juicy chunks of meat fillings. Most importantly, the skin is specially imported from Japan and has the capability to retain that crispy and chewy texture even after frying. Serves as a good appetizer. Give it a try!
Find yourself other kinds of dishes too! Some of which are:
Arashi Genkotsu Ramen (In-house made Tonkotsu Broth)
Arashi Genkotsu Sio Ramen (milky white broth with natural sea salt)
Buta Moyashi (blanched beansprouts with marinated minced pork in their special recipe seasoning)
