More Rotation at Ramen Champion at Bugis+

Tonkotsu Lobster Ramen

Ramen Champion at Bugis+ rotated out two more stalls today. Ikkousha and Muso are out (that was fast!), and in its place are Tonkotsu Itto and Mendokoro Aoi. I went to Itto first, ordering what sounded rather peculiar: a tonkotsu lobster bowl. Really...lobster? From what I could make out, that basically came in the form of that reddish sauce on the left, which frankly I could have done without. But what did impress me was everything else in the bowl, including a super thick and rich broth and a very thin slice of pork. That was pretty good...next time I'll just pass on that lobster sauce.

Then I moved to Mendokoro Aoi, which seemed to be the more crowded of the two. But I liked this one less, mainly because there was just too much garlic in this darned thing (and I didn't even order the option that had some additional garlic topping). Maybe this could be fine to have on the weekend, but I have more meetings in the office this afternoon, and I don't think brushing my teeth is going to help. I'll stick to Itto next time, especially since this broth was too thin and the pork was too thick.

Hi there, this is not a question to this post in particular but since you try out a lot do you maybe have any tip for me where to find a decent Tsukemen in Singapore? From the ones I tried I only really liked Miharu. Lots of thanks, Nik
