Ramen lovers, you'll want to add this to your rotation. Located in the basement of Marina Bay Sands, Ippudo's first quick service outlet, Kuro-Obi, allows you to have your ramen to go. This means no service charge added to the bill, prices are kept under $12, and you can have piping hot ramen by the Singapore River while overlooking the city skyline in the night. It's also great as a quick solo lunch option — orders are made on the spot, and everything is done in just under six minutes. Unlike the famed pork broth used in Ippudo, Kuro-Obi's specialty is their tori-paitan, a silky rich chicken broth that goes perfectly with their tender chicken thigh chashu. There are four flavours available, Kuro-Obi (original), Aka-Obi (spicy shrimp), Cha-Obi (veggie shoyu) and Shiro-Obi (classic). The Aka-Obi ($10) that is loaded with a scoop of spicy shrimps (hae bi hiam) and a drizzle of chili oil gives the ramen just the right amount of kick. Note that not all flavours come with the chicken chashu or Ippudo's famed umami egg, so be sure to have them as add-ons!
Avg Price: $15 per person
