Ramen Culture, Icon Village, Singapore

Mini Shio Ramen and Dry Gyoza

Another ramen shop has opened up in Singapore, this time at Icon Village in Tanjong Pagar (12 Gopeng Street #01-82). Based on the name alone, I wasn't getting my hopes up. But never judge a book by its cover, right?

Well, the good thing is that the broth in my mini shio ramen was better than I was expecting. But my jaw just dropped when they brought out the gyoza, which was drenched in chili oil and covered in scallions, with nary a scorch mark on the skin to be seen.

These things were clearly boiled rather than grilled, and the pre-dressing that they did made it more like Chinese red oil wontons. I don't know if that was the intention, but it wasn't quite what I was looking for.
