Heard of this place and decided to give it a shot. Ordered pork ribs big prawns noodle at $7. There wasn’t much people around (unlike the place opposite) so food queue was fast.
2 ribs and 2 prawns. The ribs were hard and chewy, I think the ntuc frozen ones are better really. Soup is very normal, nothing special and overrated. Can try if you’re around the area but don’t need to purposely come down. PS: If you driving can park along the perimeter of the area else can park at The Venue.

Heard of this place and decided to give it a shot. Ordered intestines big prawn noodle at $7. There wasn’t much people around (unlike the coffee shop opposite them) so food queue was fast. In my order I had 4 pieces of intestine and 2 prawn. A bit sad for the price paid. Intestine was ok.. prawn was quite nice. Overall dish is ok. Soup is very normal, nothing special and overrated, can find better and cheaper prawn noodles elsewhere. Can try if you’re around the area but don’t need to purposely come down.

Came here on Sunday, didn’t enjoy off peak hours discount. So if you intend to save some money don’t come on Sunday. Had the Tom yum seafood pasta ($14.90, excluding GST). It was.. salty. Very salty. I feel like my hair will all drop if I finish all the sauce. When I mention to staffs they were nice enough to give me some carbonara sauce to dilute it. But end up still salty (considering that I am already quite a zhong kou wei person). For the price it is ok considering it is in town. But will I come back again? No.

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.
