I usually go for the original Takagi Ramen but decided to go for the spicy Karakamen ($8.50 with egg) for a change. Not a good choice as it’s mad spicy! 🥵🥵 For someone who doesn’t take spice very well, I could feel myself choking at the heat as I tried to eat the noodles. My friend ordered Black Tonkotsu ($8.90 with egg) and felt that the garlicky taste could be stronger, but still a decent bowl of ramen for a quick fix!

Back to Kei Kaisendon for the third time, first time at One Raffles Place outlet. Service crew lady was quite rude when she was taking orders, but her attitude improved after that. Ordered Burpple 1-for-1 set, each set came with 1 don (I chose the salmon mentaiyaki don - delicious!), mini salad (not that great), yakitori (yum!) and hot green tea. The entire set was very filling and $34.98 for two sets is a good deal.

Waited 30 mins for this while my friends were already halfway through their food. Not sure why this took super long to be served that day :( Serving looks small but actually the bowl is quite deep with lots of rice. Will prefer more veg to go with this as the sides are not enough to eat with the rice :(

Returned for another round of Burpple 1-for-1 set @ $29.90++ and ordered the Saba teriyaki don this time round. Glad that the standard did not drop and was still impressed with how tasty this is :)

Ordered Truffle Black Angus Beef and Garlic Butter Black Angus Beef using Burpple Beyond 1-for-1 deal. Both taste pretty good but prefer the garlic butter one. Truffle taste is quite mild for the first bowl; while garlicky aroma is nice and quite strong for the second bowl. Service crew was attentive and kindly allowed us to sit at the bar and place our order from there. Will definitely return!

Used Burpple Beyond’s 2 dons for $25 deal. I like how tender the beef is and the pairing of egg and sauce with the beef and rice. Not a huge portion but it’s enough to fill me up. Service is pretty good - there’s a nice lady who served us with a smile and had a short chat with us :)

Ordered the Chashu-men in regular size. I like that the noodles are springy and taste decent. Personally prefer melt-in-your-mouth chashu but these meat slices are tough and hard to chew. Not really a fan of the soup base as the unami taste is too strong. The only saving grace is the add-on ramen egg for $1.50++ which has a nice gooey egg yolk.

Redeemed the Burpple deal and the Burpple set includes a don, soup, salad and 2 drumlets at $29.90+. Amount of seafood given is absolutely generous in comparison to the rice given. Not sure why many reviews mentioned the serving is small as I felt this is the size one would expect at this price point. Server was kind to allow tuna to be replaced with salmon for my personal preference :)

Tried their signature Niigata Shoyu Ramen and it was delicious! The soup has a unique umami flavour and I absolutely love the aburi chashu 😍 Friend had the tonkotsu ramen - it was full of flavour but slightly too salty towards the end. Will definitely return to satisfy my craving for melt-in-mouth chashu!

Ordered the Tonkotsu Chashu Ramen and Special Roasted Miso Ramen using 1-for-1 Burrple Beyond. Both tasted really delicious! The tonkotsu chashu ramen is lighter in taste which is great to have for a rainy day. The special roasted miso ramen is packed with umami taste, and the noodles are thicker and absorbed the soup a lot faster than the tonkotsu ramen. Will suggest to add more soup to enjoy this ramen more!

Loves sourdough and a cup of joe 😃
