Konjiki Hototogisu Soba House at CHIJMES in Singapore

Shoyu Hamaguri Soup Ramen

More Michelin Bib Gourmand ramen has landed in Singapore (30 Victoria Street #01-17, 6256-3155), but this one was much better than Wabisuke. Why? The delicate approach to the ingredients. The broth here was crisp and fragrant with not just the aroma of clams but a touch of mushrooms and truffle (clams aside, it reminded me a lot of Tsuta's shoyu). The skinny noodles were firm and textured, and the chashu was thin.

That said, the chashu was also rather lean, and the broth admittedly got a bit tiring toward the end (their little gyoza were fine but nothing particularly exciting either). I'll come back, but more to try some kind of "smoke and pepper" ramen that I saw on the menu (apparently it has wood chip smoked minced meat). Interestingly, this place was brought down here by the same guys who do Ajisen. I really hope they don't mess it up.
