Ramen Keisuke Tonkotsu King Four Seasons

Spring Ramen

Keisuke-san is in town again to open yet another shop in Singapore, this time at Bugis Village (158 Rochor Road, 6333-5740). The name is a bit unwieldy, but the idea is that there are four different bowls on top of the basic tonkotsu broth that he named around each season. The one above is the "Spring" version, which featured basil and cheese. It was fine, but after having had the green bowl at Butao Ramen in HK, this one just didn't seem that special.

It might be interesting to see what the other "seasons" are like eventually, but frankly I'm not expecting them to beat the black sansho-based one that he does at the Orchid Hotel (and puleeeease, will he bring back that awesome ebi ramen one of these days, even if only as a temporary special??). In the meanwhile, it was interesting to try his private-labeled green tea cola, which looked like green tea but tasted like Coke. My eyes had trouble reconciling it with my tongue.
