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.

Simmered in it is the hokkaido-styled ramen that is springy and delightful with each bite.

Ebi Shio So Shiok!

Ladies Set Lunch ($20)! Choose a bowl of petite size ramen (Shio, Miso, Shoyu or Curry), two side dishes before ending your delightful meal with dessert. Available from 11:30-14:30, those working in CBD shouldn't miss it.

Ebi Shio brings out the unique combination of amaebi (sweet prawn) and pork broth, aromatic without masking the flavours. Also thanks to @interriceasia we get to sample sake with ramen!

Ebi Shio Ramen.

This ramen is the bomb!!!!!! The soup has a very strong prawn flavor which is so addictive then I drank it to the final drop, and I don't always finish the soup of the ramen so this goes to prove how much I like this! The tori karaage is super crispy but still moist and tender on the inside, definitely hit all right spot! I've gotten the petite lunch set and it's just the right size for me. It comes with a dessert as well but nothing beats the ramen!

What's better than having a bowl of ramen goodness created by michelin-starred chef from Sapporo Hokkaido?

I say, to have it with premium sake specially curated for @jimotoyasg by @interriceasia.

Love a good bowl of #ramen but not the ensuing food coma?

Jimoto Ya has got all you #ladieswholunch covered with its new Ladies Set Lunch ($20 nett/pax), including a petit portion of ebi ramen (choose from 4 flavours), 2 petit sides plus dessert.

Jimoto Ya specialises in Hakodate-style ramen, characterised by their thinner and lighter style broths, and what sets theirs apart is the addition of amaebi (sweet shrimp), which adds a delicate sweetness to the umami tonkotsu (pork bone broth). Shio was my favourite of the 4 flavours (others are Shoyu, Miso, Curry) because the crustacean flavour was the most apparent there, reminiscent of a more complex and refined prawn mee. My side of Renkon Age was a delight—the crunchy lotus root slices were coated in an addictive, savoury batter.

Complement your ramen experience with the well-curated range of sakes from @interriceasia— the junmai ginjo adds depth to the broth and draws out its complex flavours.

Thank you @jimotoyasg, @interriceasia, and @justinfoodprints for organising this lovely ramen & sake experience!

Corn Croquettes

This has got all the 4Cs—Creamy, crunchy, corny, and highly comforting. Just be careful when biting into it because the piping hot lava erupts!

Like I Was Sayin', Shrimp Is The Fruit Of The Sea

You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, or sauté it, but the best way to do it is to throw it into a deep bowl of Jimoto-Ya's glorious garlic fried rice.

The humble white rice has been ascended from peasanthood straight into godhood with the introduction of a copious amount of crispy garlic chips and a few other secret ingredients. But the best 'ingredient' is the wondrous amounts of wok hei present in the rice. I betcha weren't expecting sublime wok hei from a Jap ramen restaurant, were ya? Well sunshine, get ready to be very pleasantly surprised.

Every single slick, savory grain of garlic infused Japonica rice is armed to the teeth with a whopping amount of wok hei, and you don't eat Jimoto Ya's fantastic garlic fried rice, oh no sir. You INHALE it. That's how stunningly superb their garlic fried rice is. Top that off with a bevy of beautiful, fresh and tasty prawns that snap back with every bite, and an overexcited onsen egg that squirts its creamy load indiscriminately everywhere, and you have a bowl damn near life changing garlic fried rice.

Now if you'll kindly excuse me, I have a bowl of garlic fried rice that's begging me to utterly destroy it with my mouth.

I would like to thank Jimoto Ya and Interrice Asia for being such hospitable hosts, and a big thank you to @justinfoodprints for inviting me to this terrific tasting.

Shio, I Heard You Like Ramen Shio Good...

Jimoto Ya's claim to fame and the thing that separates it from its other ramen peddling peers is its signature Shio broth. Normally, ramen broth is built from a foundation of either pork or chicken stock, but Jimoto Ya's trademarked broth is built upon prawn stock instead.

Jimoto Ya uses only prawn heads in said stock, so imagine some damned good Singaporean prawn noodle stock, and turn the rich, prawn-y intensity up to eleven, and you get the Shio broth. The Shio broth is simply shio-k, and shio good I couldn't stop myself from sinking my spoon into the bowl even though said bowl belonged to one of my dining companions.

It's much lighter than the miso ramen I've previously reviewed, but it's no less robust. The savoriness is simply solid, the brininess from the prawn heads is perfectly pleasant, and it's just so easy to drink even on its own. In fact, the Shio broth is the perfect 'sick soup'. That's right, jog on chicken soup, Jimoto Ya's shio broth has you utterly beat. The components in the bowl are exactly the same as in the miso ramen, and by God it is GOOD.

I really appreciate Jimoto Ya and Interrice Asia for being such hospitable hosts, and a big thank you to @justinfoodprints for the invite!

Miso Like This Ramen, I'll Be Back

Jimoto-ya is offering a ladies set lunch for $20 NETT that consists of a petite portion of one of their 4 ramen (shio, shoyu, miso and curry), two sides and a dessert. Fret not lads, you can still order this remarkably value for money set too.

As everyone else at the table had either chosen the shio or shoyu stock base ramen, it fell to me to order a bowl of miso in the interests of trying out everything. Oh boy was that a good decision, as this bowl of miso ramen was one of the best I've had in all my years of munching endlessly.

Granted, my experience with ramen is limited, but I can attest to the fact that the miso ramen was tastefully salty with a little hint of the brininess of the prawn stock that forms the basis of all the ramen in Jimoto Ya, smooth, light on the palette and very sparing on the oil. That marvelous miso stock put some fire in my belly and warmed my cold, dead insides with its charming umami-ness.

Swimming inside the stellar stock was a generous portion of springy, just-right ramen, a molten onsen egg that straddled the line between half and soft boiled egg, and a considerable amount of minced pork.

Now, I know, it might sound off putting at first, but the minced pork (mercifully) comes in large blobs, saving you the trouble of having to rent a sonar ship just to get every last bit of that piquant minced pork out of the bowl.

As for the sides, the spinach salad was...well, it's spinach salad. With kewpie sesame seasoning. 'Nuff said. The most unique side dish offered in the Ladies Lunch set menu is definitely the renkon age, which is basically lotus root tempura. The fried lotus root was a joy to eat, thanks to it being naturally crunchy and the superb seasoning that's in the tempura batter, but it was rather greasy.

Unfortunately, Jimoto Ya doesn't offer the petite portions at dinner, but you can get the full, unadulterated umami experience at dinner and pair it with a sterling sake that Jimoto Ya, in partnership with Interrice Asia, has painstakingly paired with their ramen. Jimoto Ya has over 20 sakes on offer, which is quite amazing for a ramen restaurant considering that many izakayas carry less than a dozen.

I really appreciate Jimoto Ya and Interrice Asia for being such hospitable hosts, and a big thank you to @justinfoodprints for the invite!

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.
