Filling me up nicely, Jimoto-ya's Ladies Set does just the job for those who enjoys a full meal without overeating (in my opinion) as food coma after lunch seems inevitable for me. Priced at $18++, the set serves a choice of 2 side dishes with a petit ramen and dessert.

For a more robust-tasting broth, their Miso Ramen is ideal for those seeking a stronger profile yet not overwhelmingly so. Ticking all the right boxes for me, the umami base had a great blend of flavours and just the right amount of saltiness. The springy noodles were also well-executed with a nice satisfying bite! All this topped with crunchy sliced cabbage, half an ajitama egg and meatballs.

For something lighter, dip your spoon into the Shio Ramen's broth. Clear and fresh, the base was very "drinkable" and tasted more familiar-somewhat like a mild as well as delicate prawn noodle soup. The aromatic mix also bringing together the individual sweetness of the pork and prawns used.

Though the portion seems measly, the lunch set was really substantial and more so with the sides. A must-try is their crispy and evenly breaded tori kara-age as the meat inside was surprisingly succulent and juicy!

The chef recommended us to try the broth before adding in the Yamazaki shot. Surprisingly, the whisky cuts the oiliness of the broth and adds a hint of smokiness. It was rich yet not “jelak”. The shot of whisky added a whole new flavour profile and a unique touch to the ramen. Additionally, in place of the usual Chashu slices, the ramen is topped with generous chunks of minced chicken and pork. Along with the Whisky Ramen, they have launched a new side item – Whisky Tiger Prawn Gyozas. Succulent tiger prawns are wrapped in gyoza skin, pan-fried to golden brown, and glazed with their signature ebi oil-infused Yamazaki.
.
In collaboration with Saucy, Jimoto Ya will be launching an exclusive set featuring a mini bowl of their Yamazaki Whiskey Ramen, 3 Whisky Tiger Prawn Gyozas, and a sparkling Yuzu drink at just S$28. To enjoy this exclusive set, diners have to purchase a ticket via saucy.sg, before making a booking at the restaurant.

Like a guest you weren’t expecting but who became the life of the party, the hint of ginger in this Buta Kakuni proved to be a very pleasant surprise.
The other main requisites of this classic comfort food, namely a pork belly that threatens to fall apart and the presence of chunky vegetables, were all accounted for.
Although this is categorised as a side dish in Jimoto Ya’s menu, a bowl of plain rice is served with it. So basically, you can enjoy their Buta Kakuni as a meal. Pretty good for fifteen bucks I must say.

You may have heard of the legendary Whisky Ebi Miso Ramen, a collab by @jimotoyasg and @saucy.sg. Well, meet version 2.0.
Limited to 30 portions daily and which you need to purchase a ticket for on www.saucy.sg, it is no longer just noodles but a set meal priced at $28 nett. The bowl of ramen has been sized down but it is now accompanied by three prawn gyozas and a glass of yuzu soda.
I think the gyozas are interesting because they‘re actually large whole prawns with a piece of soft, silky-smooth dumpling skin and chopped up prawns wrapped around them. The drink‘s a great idea because it helps refresh the palate with its sparkling citrus note. The highlight for me however, is still the ramen.
Jimoto Ya’s fiercely umami prawn broth is truly in a league of its own. That rich liquid gold is downright delicious with noodles, chunky cuts of cabbage and minced pork cooked in. But when spiked with the “magic potion” of Yamazaki Distiller’s Reserve Whisky and ebi oil, the taste is out-of-this-world.
I suggest booking soon if you want to try this because I heard the set is available only until May.

In collaboration with @saucy.sg, they had brought back the popular Whisky Ramen and also introduced Whisky Tiger Prawn Gyozas!

Springy noodles in a sweet amaebi broth laced with ebi oil-infused Yamazaki whisky, the whisky ramen was unlike what I had before as it enhances the sweetness of the broth. Juicy tiger prawn gyoza is also glazed with whisky, making it a delightful addition to the meal.

Limited to only 30 sets for lunch and dinner daily, you'll get to enjoy a mini bowl of whisky ramen, three large whisky prawn gyozas along with a sparkling yuzu soda. diners must first purchase a $3 ticket on Saucy via saucy.sg/whiskyramen2 and pay the balance at the restaurant. Available until 26 May 2018.

One of the best pork belly I've ever eaten. This is made from Kagoshima Kurobuta Belly, cooked in dashi stock and served with rice. The pork fat from the kurobuta had that delicate fragrance, while the dashi sweetness was very well-infused into the pork. Uber soft as well. If you've budget for fats and calories that day, go for this. This is as good as it gets 😋

Their highly popular Yamazaki Whiskey Ramen is back, and this time together with Whiskey Tiger Prawn Gyozas. You've heard how much I love their whiskey ramen, but it was only available for a limited time and it had been off the menu for the past few months. It's now back 😊

Now you can have the springy noodles in a sweet amaebi broth laced with the slight smokiness of ebi oil-infused whisky, together with large tiger prawns wrapped in a silky gyoza skin, pan-fried, then glazed with their signature ebi oil-infused whisky.

Part 3 of 5 completed and each one is getting better. Really enjoyed the recommendation by Jon to try by this progression: Shio, Shoyu, Curry, Miso and then Miso + Yamazaki! In case of any misrepresentation, there are no shrimps in this ramen. The pic here is their set lunch which comes with choice of 2 sides: a piece of tori-karaage and potato salad featured here; and slice of watermelon and rock melon (from Japan)! Love the Curry version which the broth is nothing but thick. The broth still carry through that rice shrimp umami and in this case the Japanese curry flavours comes complementing it so well. Certainly unique, not pretentious and well executed.

Had already read mixed reviews of this place before visiting so I definitely tried this with balanced expectations. Many people would say that this is simply ‘atas’ prawn noodles but I honestly beg to differ. It tastes like a richer version of that, no doubt, but the ramen does carry a flavor that is distinctive from the local prawn noodles. I really enjoyed the thick ebi fragrance and taste that came with the shoyu version of this ramen (which is also their most recommended). And who can say no to such a perfect ajitama egg 😂👌🏻 If I have to critique on something, it would probably be the lack of the usual chashu that I’m used to. It is instead replaced by the less substantial minced meat - 👵🏻 #burpple #throwback

ebi miso ramen with a shot of ebi oil-infused yamazaki. even before the whiskey the thick broth gives off a heady aroma of prawn and pork. it is sweet, savoury and rich at the same time. the whiskey further enhances the sweetness from the prawn and the you get the smell of whiskey in every mouthful of the soup. worth every lip-scalding sip, although the pricetag on this dish ($28, available via @saucy.sg) means that it probably shouldn’t be a daily treat unless you have really deep pockets.

Chicken so succulent and juicy freshly fried upon order with that really crunch-packed batter, you only need... a good bowl of ramen to go with it!
