Marutama Ramen

This ramen stall is also known as Basketball Ramen by Singaporeans. It’s been one of the most popular ramen restaurants in Singapore for a long time. The specialty here is its chicken paitan soup, which is lighter than normal pork based soup. Better yet, those who do not eat pork can also enjoy this yummy bowl of ramen.

Ramen Keisuke already has many outlets around Singapore. This one also adapts French styled lobster bisque with ramen. Their lobsters are imported from France and are cooked for 6 hours. This gives it a clear texture yet packs a flavorful punch  For rich creamy soup, the soup stock is simmered for additional 4-6 hours more. If you like seafood based soup, don’t miss Ramen Keisuke Lobster King.

I often go to Orchard Road to shop, eat, watch a movie or meet with friends over a cup of coffee. And if you love Japanese food like me, you will know that there are a plethora of good Japanese restaurants around Orchard Road to choose from. Today, I’m going to talk about one Japanese restaurant which is quite affordable and serves good quality Japanese food – Yayoi.

Yayoi serves teishoku or set meals with prices ranging from $10 to $20++. Yayoi has 5 branches in Singapore but the branch I am going to recommend today is at the one at Somerset 313. You can find the restaurant located just side-by-side with MK Suki, a popular Thai hot pot restaurant on B3.

Another unique point of Yayoi is that you place an order through an iPad, which is mounted at each table. After ordering, you can monitor the status of your dish whether it is being prepared or has been served. This reduces the number of staff in the restaurant to just a few waiters and cashiers.

I have eaten at Yayoi several times. The food has been consistently good and the price is not high like most good Japanese restaurants in Singapore. I personally like the mix teishoku (fried pork cutlet and breaded prawn with egg) and the pork hamburg set.

Shouga Nabe

Yesterday I ordered a special nabe set – Shouga Nabe (pork ginger hot pot served with fried white fish and rice). The soup was flavorful but not too salty. Succulent sliced pork and moist pork balls came along with the soup. A generous portion of fried white fish accompanied the set. Overall, I think it is a good deal for $18.9++.

In case you are around Orchard Road and are in the mood for Japanese food which does not break your bank, do give Yayoi a try.
