I have been a fan of Japanese ramen for many years started since the days where I traveled to Japan for their authentic ramen and in recent years, authentic Japanese mane have been establishing their brands localy and I'm a very happy man! Recently visited Ikkousha Takata Ramen and I amazed by their flavourful soup base. Started in 2004 at Hakata, Fukuoka, Ikkousha's mission is to spread authentic Hakata ramen around the world. Consisted of 3 characters, ichi (one) ko (happy) sha (space), Ikkousha aims to be the one space to bring happiness to customers, staff, and people around them. Thats what I felt during my meal at their Tanjong Pagar branch. Though the service staffs are locals (Japanese chefs at the display kitchen), their passion to share, to serve and educate is commendable!
The pig bone soup, soul of the ramen, various textures of noodles for your preference, melts in your mouth Chashu carefully seasoned, the lovely sauces which enhances the soup base and of course the distinctive umami bubbles up on each bowl of yummy ramen to produce the signature thick and creamy texture. This foam can be found in authentic tonkotsu made from slowly simmering the pork bones.
The generous hard boiled eggs and wide variety of condiments are free to choose. I had ordered their Tonkotsu Black with the garlic soup base as well as the Level 2 spiciness God Fire ramen. Even when typing this, I’m perspiring once again thinking back at their God Fire Ramen (there are 4 levels of spiciness and I’m not a fan of very spicy stuffs) Flavoured egg was added and no regrets for ordering the egg as the runny yolk bursts out after the attempt to bite it.
Fans of garlic, you can ask for more punch if you wanna but trust me, the Tonkotsu Black will fend off any blood sucking vampires and maybe the mozzies too! :P
If you prefer a mountain of toppings, feel free to add them to your orders and you’ll be spoiled for choice and I didn't get to try all the sides, but I do love their Takata Specialty Hitokuchi Gyoza and if you still have some space, maybe a plate of their juicy fried chicken which I think its quite normal.
Please do feel free to try out other flavours of their slurping ramen as well as other sides and share with me your favourites too! Ikkousha Takata Ramen can be located at Both Tanjong Pagar Plaza as well as Chimes.
