Ippudo Singapore...With a Full Menu Now
Ippudo Singapore officially opened with a full menu today. We went down there this morning to see what else they were offering beyond last week's soft launch. Unfortunately, kogashi ramen still was not being offered, but they did have a few other varieties, one of which was a seasonal karaka-men, which basically came topped with a scoop of spicy miso. It packed a punch, but almost too much - the spices overpowered the beautiful broth underneath, making us want to stick to the more elegant tasting akamaru instead.
I really liked their goma kyuri though. It was nothing more than a Japanese cucumber seasoned with a bit of sesame oil and the like, but it was so refreshing that I gobbled it up in seconds. Indeed, we took a look at their dinner menu and found a lot more things than what was available at lunchtime, largely because of a bunch of appetizers and such. Well, even if they aren't offering kogashi ramen, the chance to try out more of those little dishes is probably worth several more trips down here.
