๐Ÿ’ฌ The aroma of the truffle could be smelled even before I saw my bowl arrive. The noodles here were thin and had a great firm bite. Funnily, I must say they really took the "dry" part seriously as the noodles were all clumped up together. But this is where the perfectly sous vide-d egg comes in; break and watch the runny egg seep into the ramen, coating every strand with rich yolky creaminess. They were very generous with the kombu bits and truffle shavings as well. However I have to admit, it does get overwhelming really quickly with each bite being an explosion of truffle goodness. Now although the star of the show should be the truffles, but oh man, the caramelised pork was incredible! It was nicely charred with a blow torch and the deliciously burnt sugar was much needed to switch up the flavours.

First time trying ramen at Kanshoku Ramen Bar.
Dining experience was not bad, server was quick, friendly and attentive. Kanshoku specialised in dry truffle ramen, which was first in Singapore, and also crowd's favourite, so I ordered their Dry Truffle Ramen and also their soup version which is the Signature Tonkotsu ramen.

When the dry truffle ramen ($16.90) was served to me, it was very aromatic, intense truffle oil fragrance lingering though the air! The truffle oil infused noodles were topped with ChaShu, onsen egg, shio kombu (salted kelp) and truffle shavings. Chashu had good balance of the meat and fatty ratio, were well marinated, well seared and blow torched. Umami, delicious and melt in the mouth.

Noodles are Hakata style, nice thin ramen noodles just like the angel hair pasta, had a nice good bite but for the dry truffle ramen, ramens were slightly on the drier side and sticking together. If you enjoy a denser eggy flavoured noodles, you can break the onsen egg, mix and let the gooey egg yolk coat the strands of noodles evenly. It depends on individual, some might think that by doing this will be abit overpowering and covers the truffle taste. I only break half to mix and test it out. Preferred eating the onsen egg on its own.

On the other hand for the signature Tonkotsu ramen ($13.90), their broth was boiled for over 8 hours with no added MSG and preservatives. Pretty decent broth flavour, while ingredients were quite straight forward. Overall quite an expected taste, not too much of wow factor.

Ramen came with two thin slices of char siew and lots of bamboo shoots and onions. Although thin, the char siew was a good mix of fats and meat which I enjoyed. Soup was average as it tasted more like MSG than pork essence and my noodles were a bit hard for my liking.

Damage: $15.90 (+$2 for an egg)

Dry ramen served with lots of truffle, tasted pretty good but the ramen egg was obviously not fresh, had this siap/alkaline texture to it

Somehow I felt the portion is getting smaller even the bowl they used. Still my son's all time fav. Paid $19.90 for it, dun think it's worth it.

Truffle Broth Ramen - Super good truffle fragrant bowl of ramen!! The dry one looks good too!
