Have been hearing mixed review from many, but personally I liked how light the broth was and the inclusion of white truffle oil does heightened the flavor of the ramen. Love the non-fatty charsiew too!

The moment it was served to us, the whole of second level was brimming with the aroma of this fried rice, a little garlicky and when you sink your teeth into it, it was pleasantly surprised with the crispy sakura ebi that gives it a little umami punch. A little of the wok-hei flavor too! Really love how grainy and aromatic the bowl of fried rice is!

Am kind of impressed by the Spicy Yuzu Ratan Ramen ($15.90) from Afuri! Unlike the typical thick flavored pork bone base, what you get is a refreshing citrus flavored balanced with a comfortable level of spiciness that got me almost finishing the soup till the last drop. It couldn’t be more than perfect if the soup was a little less oily and the char siew was a little more tender.

Pretty good selections of izakaya and donburi bowls at rather reasonable prices ranging from $5-$17. Their skewers are well seasoned with differentiated flavors from one stick to another. Chicken wings are lightly salted while chicken balls are lightly brushed with sweet teriyaki sauce and the natural sweetness of shiitake mushroom and bacon with asparagus. Another recommended dish for oyster lovers will be their sake-cooked oyster!

Lightly torched aburi salmon roll from Tomi Sushi. With a little of the creaminess off the top and a little fattiness off the mouthfeel. It’s still quite a decent roll to have. Not the best I ever had, neither was it the most money worthy restaurant to begin with. Freshness of sashimi can definitely be improved! But if you need some Japanese restaurant to go to in the Novena area, I guess it will still not disappoint.

It’s worth the penny but the buckwheat soba is a tad too underwhelming. It’s kind of dry and lumpy. But the thick salmon slices did help this poke bowl to gain some brownie points. On a side note, the $2 salmon soup is actually the main savior of the day! Essentially packed with sweet umami flavors and truckloads of salmon bits, konbu, tofu and more. Alternatively from the buckwheat soba, go for their yuzu brown rice!

Ps/ I’ve tried it the second time with yuzu brown rice! It’s amazing!

Don't underestimate the unpretentious white curry seafood ramen. Though I have expected the ramen to come in thick white curry but of which thought it might be too overwhelming on the other hand. So despite the soup looking clear, give it a good few stir and it will start looking a little white and cloudy. With a slurp, you could actually taste traces of white curry, it's rather amazing in a way that though the soup is watery but yet you could feel the white curry flavor in your mouth. Best of all, the accompanying seafood were plump, fresh and succulent and ramen were cooked to the right texture, a little springy a little soft. It's second best alternative for the adventurous soul! The safe and sound alternative remains to be the rice version with thick white curry!

Ramen was springy with a chew and char siew portion was generous and meaty! Flavor was light with additional self helping of vinegar and chilli oil to your own liking. Quite a different experience of eating ramen this way!

Addition of bonito to the traditional pure pork bone soup base has mellow down the porky flavors while adding a dash of umami flavors to it. Other than that, their toroniku (pork cheek) literally melts in your mouth! It's just too good for such a reasonably priced bowl of 🍜 at @soramensg!
