The recent craze for Ramen in Singapore and HK is a god send and I do try to visit most of the well 'rated' stores in both countries.
In summary, it was not as great as the queues claimed...
Ordered the standard Butao (we generally only go for the basic the first time at any ramen stores)..
The soup was pretty good, not too oily and well balanced taste.
Unfortunately the noodle was not well cooked. Usually for yellow noodle there is a starch taste (in hokkien we call it 'gni') that has to be gotten rid of. Maybe because the soup base is not really strong, you can taste the starch taste in the noodle.
Half boil egg was cold at the core.. might be intentional..
The char-siew meat was too soft and just crumpled into little bits as you eat the noodle..
Verdict, I am probably fine with eating it again but I won't wait 30mins for it.. When the weather is better and I happened to walk by ya..
otherwise, the hideki ramen (next street) or ippudo (heard there is one nearby) likely offer nicer experience overall than this one.
