#chashu with very good bite and a distinctive lovely sweetness. #ramen #squidink The pork mince didnt do much for me though, and instead marred the experience a little. #japaneseramen #noodles #ramennagi

Tried the Black King Ramen ($15.90) and was pleasantly surprised by the flavours ๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค Also really liked that there is the option to personalise the bowl of ramen - from the soup thickness, to the toppings.

Service and food were really good. The soup was fragrant which blended well with the squid ink. The squid ink did not stain my teeth like I expected it to. The egg was flowy and delicious. The interior design of the restaurant is really unique and I felt like I was in Japan. I loved the open kitchen concept in the restaurant where I can see the chefs meticulously preparing my food and my food was served hot immediately.

Stylish store tucked in the corner of suntec city, itโ€™s interesting how they name their ramens by colour (e.g red king, green king), canโ€™t wait to see whatโ€™s their next flavor.

Iโ€™m a fan of the black king ramen - itโ€™s made from garlic and squid ink making it really tasty. Itโ€™s soup base is thicker than the tonkotsu but not too overpowering. The tonkotsu is their signature dish, great for whoever wants a good oโ€ classic ramen . Portion was filling.

Get their tea, itโ€™s bottomless!

Had the red king while my bestfriend had the black king which was broth with black garlic while mine was with chilli oil and cayenne. They allow the customisation of the richness of the soup and such, so you can pick according to your preference. Not much ingredients, not a wide variety to choose from, so I ended up wth a lot of noodles and broth, but nothing to pair it with. Though it was not bad, I donโ€™t see myself returning unless Iโ€™m really craving ramen in the area.

Headed there with the intention of trying out the Black King because it looks really good on the advert. Changed my mind and tried the Green King instead~ HANDS DOWN for this unique fusion ramen with cheese, it tasted really good and the portion was really generous! It's conveniently situated at Suntec too. Highly recommended :)

First time hearing of black sesame ramen and as a fan of black sesame I had to give the black king a try and it sure didnโ€™t disappoint! Tried my friendโ€™s Red King and absolutely loved it as well!! Canโ€™t wait to be back back to try the other kings!

With blackened garlic and squid. Ramen Nagi is definitely one of the better ramen joints in Singapore serving shiok and thick tonkotsu broths and noodle texture is customisable.

Similar to Japan, you fill up a slip indicating your preferences for the various aspect of the dish (e.g. soup richness, noodle firmness, etc.)

I'd recommend the light richness as it gets saltier as the richness increases. And it can get quite 'jelat' after a while. Also, there is an option of belly or shoulder (chashu) pork as part of the ramen. Although the serving of the belly was seemingly smaller at first glance, it proved quite different when you start eating. It is very flavourful and soft, although not melt in your mouth.

Ramen Nagi is probably the place one would go to for a quick fix to ramen cravings. Reasonably priced, quick service, no frills dining.
