The first time I chanced upon Takagi Ramen on Grabfood, I was excited as it was during CB period and I was craving for Ramen. It was with such excitement coursing through my veins that I proceeded to order a Karakamen set (with Fried Gyoza).

However, upon receiving the Ramen, my excitement quickly dissipated to be swiftly replaced with disappointment.

The noodles were stiff and had a weird aftertaste and the soup had so much of the chilli Oil added that I could only taste the oil and none of the soup which made eating the ramen an unpleasant experience. The ramen egg that came along with it was so bland that I think the Hanjuku Eggs of 7-11 would taste like heaven. All in all, my family members and I came to a conclusion that the best item of this Ramen Set was the fried gyoza.

Fast forward to yesterday, when my friends and I were looking to have dinner after our exercise session, we happen to come across this outlet at Jurong West and immediately, alarm bells start ringing in my head. Although I was very hesitant to have this, seeing how my friends did not try it before and we were very very hungry, I decided to give this another chance.

I ordered the Black Tonkotsu Set (with fried gyoza and nope no egg for fearing of what’s to come). When the noodles arrived, the aromatic smell of the Black Garlic Oil rumbled my stomach juices and I was thinking “wow will eating here make a difference, is it redemption time ?”. However that thought was quickly put to bed upon the first sip of the soup. For all the aromatics of the black garlic oil, the soup was very very lacklustre and it was only until I added almost all of the chilli powder did it have some form of character to it. All in all, my friends and I agreed unanimously that the star of the ramen set was the fried gyoza & the chilli powder.

All in all, I think the $$ we paid for the ramen (avg of $16) is not worth it. Perhaps, to compare this Ramen to other more “famous” Ramen brands in Singapore is very unfair as it would be akin to comparing a Toyota to a Nissan GT-R. A more suitable comparison to this would be Ajisen Ramen but I vividly recall that the broth of Ajisen Ramen was more flavourful....

In short, even though this place opens 24 Hours, if ever I have a late night ramen craving, I would rather take my chances on my instant noodles/ramen at home.

Newly launched item on the menu, Fuji Five Lakes Fried Rice.

At first glance, it's an impressive pile of rice. Its piled higher than in their promo picture and packed pretty compactly. Even after the sauce was drizzled over the rice, it didn't collapse. Points for sturdy construction.

To call it a fried rice, nah. More like mixed rice. Just cooked Japanese rice mixed with those kind of frozen mixed vegetable bits. Rice lacked any seasoning at all. The accompanying condiments were quite little. If you were to mix everything together, it's alot more rice.

Speaking of the rice, I reckon there's about 2-3 bowls of rice in that tower. Unless you can really eat so much rice, if not you should not get this.

The star of the dish is the salted egg yolk sauce. Creamy, rich. Somehow, you won't get sick of this sauce. It sort of makes up for the weak and rather tasteless rice. We had a refill of the sauce. It's an additional of $2.

The sides are always well done. The takoyaki is crispy on the outside, soft and goey on the inside. I wish there was more than 6. The Gyoza, nothing special. Similar in taste to the ones from old Chang kee.

Dish: Tonkotsu Ramen
Price: $7.20 (inclusive of 40cents for takeaway)

The soup base was thick, oily and lacking of flavours- I can taste more burnt bits than the cloyingness from the soup. Efforts for the packaging though.

I love that the food here is affordable and very filling and also that they boil the pork bone broth by themselves instead of using ready made paste. The noodles are on the firmer side here which makes it very comforting with the soup I feel. Come here if you are in the area ◡̈

the broth had a bit of sweetness and spiciness, clearly attempting to resemble that of chilli crab sauce but the components just didn’t work altogether. not that it was horrible but it didn’t deliver what it promised. 6/10.

but while the tonkotsu was entirely masked by salted egg, the broth surprisingly doesn’t overwhelm and there is a whole soft shell crab in it. will come back to try their chilli crab ramen!
