Nantsuttei Ramen is one of many Ramen establishments that have made a name in Singapore. I’ve heard and read many raving reviews about it, and I was more than eager to give it a slurp myself. Parked at a corner of Millenia Walk, PARCO Marina Bay, no one would know its existent if the words did not get out.
Who would have known you would be lectured before a meal right. Read through the notes and you’ll realize you might have been eating Ramen the wrong way all this while. Thankfully, not only is a lecturer not present, its tutorial is also an easy and joyous one – eating.
Chashu-Men ($16++) :: Unfortunately, with or without the hype, Nantsuttei’s style of Ramen is completely not my cup of tea. The broth comes as a little too thick in flavors and taste, making it super cloying and an uphill challenge trying to finish it up. Its simmered pork meets the norm standard.
The noodles, though relatively thin, was rather soggy for me. It isn’t firm enough to feel the bite of noodles. So, both the texture and the softness of the noodles are not to my liking, unfortunately.
I guess ‘taste is subjective’ is the best example here. I don’t see myself ever going back.
