I first tried Ippudo when its popularity blew up several years ago and it changed my perspective on the traditional Takata-style ramen. Expect innovative flavours such as this Bonito Tonkotsu, a full-bodied fish and pork broth blend exclusive to Singapore. The icon of this dish, Japanese citrus pepper paste, is stuck on the rim of the bowl and enhances the broth with a zest of mild heat when mixed in.

Noodles are springy with customisable hardness and the key favourites, pork belly chashu and soft boiled egg, melt in the mouth with amazing flavour. Bamboo shoots, while uncommon in the mix, had a crunchiness that brought textural variety to the bowl.
