After a dramatically overextended, uninspired, illogical, gin-fuelled hiatus in writing any reviews over the last few weeks, @thintbites is seemingly back with an even greater gap in his writing than ever before, courtesy of procrastination and a forgettable sense of the word. It has been a long time coming but I suppose with the flow of things being ceaselessly inconsistent alongside the pretentiousness in my gourmet literature rising to an all time high, writing at a doable pace would be the most appropriate option in my personal opinion and decision.

With that being said, let’s kick start this bad boy again with the one thing that I hold closest to my heart, that may very well ironically and eventually clog it up if I were to consume too much of it. We’re talking about ramen, and its myriad of possibilities and flavours shaped from decades of culinary endeavours. The place in mind is a very special place, being my favourite ramen shop in the entire world. Ginza Kamo Soba Kyudaime Keisuke is a humble little abode nestled in the heart of the village of beer towers and happy hours that is Holland Village. We’re talking about Keisuke Takeda here, who in my opinion is the most legendary ramen chef in the history of modern ramen culture. His ramen empire in Singapore is a majesty to behold with a total of 19 outlets worldwide, of which 14 of them are in Singapore.

With numerous specialty ramen shops incorporating fresh new takes on the infinite joy and abundance of ramen, Ginza Kamo Soba Kyudaime Keisuke is just one of the geniuses of Keisuke Takeda, and stands to be my favourite ramen combining two of my favourite things: Ramen and Duck. Their Hybrid Duck Broth Ramen with Flavoured Egg in Rich Soup ($16.90++) is the crème de la crème in the world of ramen. This beauty features a robust, warm and sensational broth flavoured with duck bones and herbs, topped with two gorgeous slices of Irish hybrid duck with the perfect noodles to soak up every last drop of the quack.

From wonderful customer service to the alluring charm of the complimentary hard-boiled eggs and toppings galore, this is the one place to be for ramen and ramen.
