Lovers of authentic Japanese ramen are in luck in Singapore, with Takumen opening its first store outside Japan on Circular Road. Uniquely, Takumen features not one style of cooking but a rotation of six famous Ramen dishes, sourced from different restaurants across Tokyo, and then replicated in minute detail for Singapore diners to enjoy.
What’s more, each dish will be prepared in both its authentic form and in a Singapore version using less oil and salt.
This gives diners the chance to try some of Tokyo’s best ramen, including the award-winning Ramen Hajime, without leaving the country.
Our favourites include Hajime’s Tori-Paitan, a creamy light chicken brew, the rich and flavourful Yokohama Iekei from Sakutaya and the Jiro-inspired Ramen from Chibakara, which features huge slabs of Char Siew. Recommended!
