Had a little chat with the owner and turns out all of his miso are special blends. Particularly, the spicy miso and the secret miso are two completely different blends with different tastes, and not just putting some kind of chili into the miso soup like some places. Given that they are called kokoro, it's no surprise you can appreciate the chef's heart and soul from the first sip of the soup. A thick broth that even a tonkotsu lover like myself find hard to finish(though it's partially because of the heat), even at medium spiciness there's a significant amount of heat which results in a rather familiar, Singaporean flavour. The noodles were straight and on the softer side which I love, and the plump kernels of corn lend textural contrast and sweetness to the dish. While the charsiu isn't very tender, it's very fatty and not tough, which combined with the thin cut makes it a marvellous meaty bite. Kudos to such a unique kind of charsiu. Overall for 12nett it's definitely worth a try

Decently priced for a bowl of ramen and of decent standards. Nothing screams out from this bowl of noodles. I like that the soup was not very salty for a Shoyu-based ramen. The meat was also tender but a tad bit thinly sliced. No complaints if a bowl of comforting noodles is what you are looking for ◡̈


$8. Sorry didn't like it. Egg was overcooked too. I will stick to my sanpoutei ramen. 😄

From Kokoro Ramen at The Bedok Marketplace, one of the most recent openings that only serve two types of ramen — Spicy Miso Ramen and a Tonkotsu Ramen.

First taste of the spicy Miso broth and I must say I actually found myself liking it quite a bit; it's thick and rich without being too salty or MSG-laden — in fact, there is this light tinge of sweetness that lingers around that makes one want to go on and on with the spicy Miso broth. It's also notably spicy; definitely could feel the kick despite it being very manageable for me — in fact, I found the spiciness to be really balanced for it does not overwhelm the flavours of the broth thus adding a little bit of dimension to the flavours in the entire bowl. Condiments such as black fungus and corn are included; the Cha Shu is a little bit on the lean side here but gives a meaty bite with a strip of fats for a chewier texture. If there is anything to improve on, it had to be the flavoured egg; it lacks the gooey yolk in the centre and the yolk was almost fully solidified. That aside, it is actually quite a good bowl of ramen flavour-wise; pretty sold by the spicy Miso broth already!
