Ramen Keisuke Tori King is founded by Keisuke Takeda, who started his career as a chef with a French restaurant. After 12 years, he moved on to fine-tune his culinary skills in Japanese cuisine, notably on ramen. Soon, his popularity expanded beyond Japan and in 2010 he opened his first overseas outlet–Ramen Dining Keisuke Tokyo–in Singapore.

His Tonkotsu Ramen Special won the top spot as the Critics’ Choice in Timeout Singapore’s Best Ramen Bowl.
