Xin Hao Ramen opened its doors at Bugis Cube recently and it serves ramen with a local twist. Expect a decent bowl of hot, piping ramen without the normal Japanese bamboo shoots and chashu.
Ordering method is rather unique (in fact, I think I've used this ordering method in Japan before). Firstly, choose the type of ramen you want to have (salted, miso, shoyu, spicy) and bring the respective tag to the counter to order. Add ons of grilled meat, hanjuku egg, noodles and fried enoki are also available.
Simple and fuss free ordering instructions.
Place is small and neat. A good place for a fast lunch.
Ordered the Shoyu ramen. I have a fetish for shoyu ramen ever since I tasted incredibly yummy ones in Hokkaido many years back and have been in search of a bowl of good shoyu ramen in Singapore ever since.
Broth is not oily and flavourful enough for my liking, though it lacked of some oomph. However, it is still pretty decent and if i'm nearby and craving for ramen, I would come back here again. Fried enoki, hanjuku eggs and grilled meat came along with the ramen.
Also tried the spicy ramen. Definitely spicy which added an extra kick to the flavours.
The lean grilled meat is what makes the ramen different from others. This meat is marinated and grilled chinese style, chewy and yummy!
And i must definitely comment that their hanjuku egg was cooked to such perfection that the yolk was silky and creamy, I'm not a fan of egg yolk but i finished this!
Very soon, we emptied our bowls and left with very satisfied stomachs.
