Kusabi, The Central, Singapore

Uobushi Shouyu Tonkotsu Tsukemen

Yet another ramen shop from Japan has opened in Singapore (6 Eu Tong Sen Street #01-68, 6225-9415), this one at the former site of Azabu Sabo at the Central (and interestingly, it looks like Pizza Al Taglio next door has given way to a new outlet of Gayatri).

This one was unique, as they featured some kind of a fish powder in the uobushi broth. Some people would probably find the borderline-grittyness to be annoying (not to mention the fishy taste), but that was precisely what I liked so much about it. It was ramen with an edge.

I'll definitely be back, especially since there were a few other items on the menu that looked worthy of a try; they even had nikumaki available. My favorite ramen shop in town is still Keisuke, but this one was a worthwhile competitor.
