拉面 La Mian World

the quest for the perfect noodle

August is over. I did not eat La Mian this whole month (I think…) and betrayed the objective to find the best hand pulled noodle by eating tons of Japanese Ramen.

I remember eating again at the Ramen Champion in Terminal 3 at Changi Airport after I arrived back from somewhere around noontime. I had tried the Hakata Ikkousha stall last month and featered it in the previous post. Now I went for Gantetsu from Sapporo. The latter was definitively not my personal Ramen Champion.

Tonkotsu King Keisuke was good for another visit since they simply have the best, most tasty and outstanding Ramen in Singapore. I went to Marutama in The Central shopping center at Clarke Quay which has very decent servings of noodles. In Orchard Road just opened Uma Uma Ramen in Forum Shopping Mall, which is a bit overpriced most likely due to its location. Also Square 2 at Novena has a new Ramen place called Tonkotsu Kazan Ramen. Kazan translates as volcano as they explain. Their specialty is this Ramen served in a super hot stone bowl. Soup is poured in and they put some volcano shaped lid on. It starts steaming of course. Very interesting but I still had just the simple and basic Tonkotsu Ramen. Basic is best!
