Jimoto Ya - Ebi Shio Ramen エビ塩ラーメン (A-la Carte 💵S$16.50, Ramen Set 💵S$19.50) Signature Japanese Sweet Prawn & Pork Bone Broth Ramen with Salt Seasoning.

🍜

The complexity that Jimoto-Ya gets out of their shrimp shio ramen is pretty amazing. Shio, which means flavoured with salt not soy sauce. So that's nothing to hide behind. 🏵
It's a real test of agility & precision for a ramen cook.
But their bowls are inarguably delicious that's packed with Umami. 🤤
The layer of shrimp fat on top of that bowl of ramen is the most delicious shrimp fat eating experience I've ever had & I do love shellfish. 🦐

ACAMASTIPS & GTK💮: Not all ramen joints does great shio, is like finding a partner that ticks all your requirements categories (rare but always treasured) The flavour of the shio is the lightest of all the ramen Jimoto Ya offers & it's a good start to wet your palette before venturing into the richer broths. 😋

Hokkaido Corn Croquette 🌽($6.50)

Saw Veronica's recommendation on Burpple and knew we had to get this. NO. REGRETS. 😂

Ridiculously smooth, you'd wonder how it's possible that it's potato in there. Coupled with a good amount of those corn kernels and the ultra light, crisp shell, it gave this inconspicuous side dish a really awesome texture and bite.

Ebi Shoyu Ramen Set

Ebi Shoyu Ramen Set ($19.50)

The sets @jimotayasg are very value for $ since the ala-carte ramen already costs $16.50. The deef-fried chicken is a must! 2 pieces of fragrant and juicy chicken coated with a delicious seasoning. They were especially crispy and I suspect it is cos cereal was added to the batter.

The ramen's shoyu broth was lovely. I just wish it could be a tad less oily though I figured it helped to keep the noodles warm.

Ebi Shio Ramen

Ebi Shio Ramen ($16.50)

Japanese sweet prawn and pork bone broth ramen with salt seasoning @jimotayasg . Prawn based soups are my all time favourite! Loving that sweet umami broth. I preferred this shio to the shoyu version as I rather taste the soup broth unadulterated.

Hokkaido Corn Croquette

Hokkaido Corn Croquette ($6.50)

This unassuming side dish @jimotayasg was ordered thanks to the recommendation from @veronicaphua . No regrets at all! Crispy on the outside and smooth and creamy inside. Perfect accompaniment to the ramen.

For Ramen with a Unique Prawn and Pork Broth

Those hankering after a comforting bowl of ramen should head to this ramen-ya in China Square Central (opposite Wang Dae Bak). Instead of the more commonly known pork broth, Jimoto Ya specialises in a unique pork and amaebi (sweet prawn) broth made from amaebi prawn heads. There are five items on the menu (from $16.50) including the crowd favourite Ebi Shio Ramen ($16.50). The flavourful yet light tasting broth is ladled over al dente noodles, crunchy cabbage, ajitama (marinated egg) and minced meat. Note that the restaurant swaps out cha shu for minced meat, claiming that cha shu doesn't go well with their soup base. For a hearty and satisfying meal, opt for the value-for-money sets that are available for both lunch and dinner. Each set ($19.50) comes with a ramen, a side (opt for the ebi tempura!) and complimentary tea.
Avg Price: $20 per person

We went for the shio and shoyu ramen sets.

We got a set A (chicken karaage) and a set B (prawn tempura) which includes free flow of water or iced/hot barley tea. Each set costs $19.50 nett! The broth is a mix of sweet prawn and pork. Very yummy. #burpple #tingzieeats

Pondering your lunch options?

😋
How about a bowl of pork+amaebi prawn broth ramen paired with crispy fried corn croquette/chicken karaage/fried lotus root/ebi tempura from @jimotoyasg ? Really love all the fried nibbles here! Especially the corn croquette!

[Official Opening Tomorrow] Hiyashi Cyuka ($18.50).

This dish takes 8 mins to make because it is cooked a-la-minute when the kitchen receives the order, and I like that it was al dente, fragrant and refreshing.
🔸
There's a hint of spice due to the use of spicy oil, and lots of fragrance from the ebi oil used in the noodles. The interplay of texture and taste from the various ingredients used work well, with the pork loin, minced meat, sakura ebi, nori seaweed, cabbages, sesame seed, and sliced leek working with one another.
🔸
To fully enjoy this dish, mix it well before eating. First squeeze the lemon to give the dish some zest, then mix it around throughly and eat it as you would a pasta, with a spoon and fork.

Ramen fans, good news!

A new ramen place is in town!
🍜
Jimoto Ya, the new ramen kid on the block will excite your taste buds with a new ramen broth- sweet prawn (amaebi) + pork bone!
🍜
Expect to savour a bowl of springy noodles in a super flavorful and aromatic prawn broth that will be kept warm throughout the meal due to the layer of ebi oil on top.
🍜
Instead of cha shu, the ramen will be accompanied by minced meat that has been fried in its own fat and a perfectly cooked Japanese onsen egg.

S$16.50++ (ala carte), S$19++ (ramen+side+tea)

Using a blend of japanese sweet prawns and pork bone, the broth base is thick, sweet and robust in flavour, and gives the sticky gleam of gelatin on one's lips as one slurps the broth.

Adding soya sauce seasoning to it gives this delish shoyu ramen (pictured). Simmered in it is the hokkaido-styled ramen that is springy and delightful with each bite.
_
What's notable is that this bowl of goodness stays warm throughout my meal, due to the layer of oil however that also adds flavour to the broth.

Created by the Chef Mieda of Michelin-starred Kaiseki restaurant, it officially launches on 27 March.

Created by Chef Mieda of Michelin-starred Kaiseki restaurant, not only does Jimoto Ya serve up deletable ramen, they also keep firm to not adding charsiew/bamboo shoots and just focusing on the ramen though minced meat is served in the bowl too.

_
Uncommon in Singapore, they use a unique blend of japanese sweet prawns and pork bone broths for the ramen. The prawn flavour, reminiscent to that in local prawn noodles, stays strong and evident such as the shio ramen I had as only salt is added to the broth base, thus retaining the full prawn flavour. I'll recommend this to the first timers here.

Corn Croquette

H O S T E D
The dark horse at tonight's tasting was the corn croquette. It was initially ignored in favour of the more glamorous looking dishes when it arrived at our table. But once we took a bite of the croquette, all of us were wide-eyed with awe at how good it was.
The deepfried battered coating was light, crunchy and amazingly grease-free, while the filling was ultra smooth and creamy with a subtle sweetness. Nestled in there were a few golden-yellow corn kernels that further enhanced the sweetness.
Regardless of the ebi or sweet prawn-based ramen you decide on, this is a side dish you should not miss.

Deep-fried Lotus Root

Jimoto-Ya is an amaebi-focused ramen joint but they do seem to have some interesting nibbles. Even the humble lotus root has been jazzed up with a grainy and crunchy thin layer of coating seasoned with an addictive savouryness.
Munching on this will have you reaching for more drinks. But since when is that a problem? 😜🍻

"Ebi-body's prawn to talk about that base." 🦐🦐🦐😆

H O S T E D
Sorry for the bad puns (I couldn't resist 😜) but seriously, the star at Jimoto-Ya is the sweet prawn-based stock. With the exception of the cold noodles, it is the foundation from which all their bowls of ramen rise.
They've got a unique process in-house to ensure every bowl tastes the same at any time of the day or night: they actually have two pots of stock. One contains the prawn based one and the other, the pork. Whenever an order comes through to the kitchen, many things happen simultaneously. As the ramen is being cooked, the two stocks are scooped out in the correct ratio for that particular order and brought together to a boil before vegetables are thrown in. Then into that goes the cooked ramen for a quick simmer before the dish is ready to be served.
I chose the Ebi Shoyu tonight and loved its robust flavours. Those of you who like a lighter taste may find it a bit salty, so the Ebi Shio would be a better choice then. Don't panic about the layer of oil in the bowl. It's made with ebi and besides giving the ramen intense umami-ness, it helps to keep everything hot for longer.
The noodles are springy, which suit the liveliness of the soup well. And I found the sweetness of the cabbage welcoming. Last but not least, the egg was perfectly done with an almost-liquid gold yolk.
