Ramen has always been one of my favourite types of noodles. And of course, the thick broth and flavourful soft-boiled eggs do not hurt too! Naturally, seeing that Sanpoutei Ramen has replaced Ramen Play at Holland Village some time back, I decided to check it out with my good friend.
The ramen at Sanpoutei is freshly made with the noodle making machine on location (in between the kitchen and entrance). Also, the restaurant uses specially manufactured “keep warm” bowls produced in Tsubame Sanjo, Niigata, which is famous for producing metal products.
I ordered the Rich Tori Spicy Miso ($17), while my friend ordered Ramen with Soup Tonkotsu with Special Full-topping ($18.80).
The soup base for my ramen was soup stock mixed with Sanpoutei ‘s original spicy-miso blend and the ramen was topped with tender homemade flavored soft-boiled egg and aburi chashu.
The ramen with full topping comes with five slices of tenderly stewed aburi chashu, flavored soft-boiled egg, dried seaweed and black fungus. I was amazed that my friend could finish everything! I had difficulty finishing my bowl, which came with approximately half the toppings his had.
