Pepper Ramen at Noodle House Ken
Looks like these guys are now called Noodle House Ken (150 Orchard Road #01-17/18, Orchard Plaza, 6235-5540 - sorry it took so long to get that address up there, guys...that was one of my first blog entries before I started entering details in), and they've added a special koshou (pepper) ramen for S$12 (US$7). I decided to give it a try, and I didn't regret it. Using a salt-based yet milky broth, this apparently features some kind of special pepper (from Japan, I assume?), although honestly I couldn't taste it. It didn't matter. It was still really good; thinner than the normal broth at Noodle House Ken, but still full of flavor, thanks to all the borderline-excessive salt. Inside, the fillings are your usual suspects of bamboo shoots, pork slices, and seaweed, but they also threw in an ume plum, which was different. Anyway, I'll come back here for this. This certainly reiterates the point that this is probably one of the best ramen shops on the island. And they are open until 2 AM, which makes it great for post-drinking (or late office night) eating binges.
