Bishamon Sapporo Ramen

Spicy Miso Ramen
The Raffles City basement now has so many eateries but very few that we like. A few days ago, we chanced upon this little ramen shop - Bishamon Sapporo Ramen. Ah, another Sapporo ramen joint. I'd heard good stuff about them. And we weren't disappointed. I liked the spicy miso ramen (S$12) I had. Nicely savoury without being overpowering or overly spicy. The char siew slices are very thick but amazingly, they were so tender, they just melted in your mouth.

Shoyu Ramen
Hubby enjoyed the shoyu ramen (S$12.50). I am not fond of shoyu flavouring and found a perceptible porky taste. But it does grow on you. Just a very different flavour from the miso.

Ramen and curry rice menu
This tiny shop doesn't seat very many. Seats spill out into the walkway and most people just eat and go. Bishamon also serves curry rice and some appetiser snacks, if you prefer something other than ramen.

  3. southernoise: haha, ironic, since the ramen visit was partly inspired by your tonkotsu experiment!

    didally: thanks, they were not too bad. I normally prefer shio though.

  4. camemberu: Makan'ed the Special Miso Ramen and it was pretty nice.

    One thing that minus a few points was the tamago was broken and I couldn't find the yolk. The egg would have been delicious with the runny yolk...

    And the waitress keep upselling the side dishes and drinks hahaha... just doing her job i guess!

    Will definitely go a few more times. :)

  5. A broken egg with missing yolk??? That's unacceptable! Did you demand a new egg?

    Haha, the waitress probably thinks you are a prosperous taukey, can eat more! lol

  6. Tried this with gf.
    I had the special miso and she had the shio ramen. In my opinion the special miso was better but shio offered a more subtle flavour.

    The egg was jusssst right firm outside and ohhh so runny inside :D

    Peeked across at someone having the curry ebi rice which looked... well pathetic.

    The 3 ebi and the curry at the side somewhat screamed unsatisfying.

  7. i did not demand as i was already 1/4 down the bowl till I saw the egg hidden under the seaweed.

    BUT I did fill up the feedback form. ;)

  8. Looks lovely :) yours is still one of my favourite food blogs :)

    My latest surf-in is due my latest craze about ramen :) With ramen - whether it be in Australia or in Singapore, I find it astounding that so many (particularly Chinese people) refer to this dish and particularly many of the ingredients in Japanese terms, as well as treat it as a Japanese invention or foreign dish. Not that there is anything at all wrong with this, except that all things came from China and I believe ramen is a direct copy or derivation of a Chinese noodle dish. Shitake, miso, shoyu, sake, are all classic Chinese ingredients after all and are always interchangeable in recipes. Some Asian connoisseurs and gourmands may beg to differ and would insist that Japanese goods were always far superior but this is just a result of wealth and marketing.

    Anyway, you don't have to take my word for it, especially if history is not your favourite subject either lol! But as far as I'm concerned, if it's not sashimi or sushi, a gyoza is yet another Chinese potsticker to me lol. As for ramen... I wonder if anyone can enlighten us on the origins of ramen? I am very interested in what the original soup stock was like. Original is usually best :) but most importantly, it teaches us the best way forward :) and although ramen looks and sounds absolutely gorgeous, I'm not entirely sure it can't be improved upon for the future :) superbadkitty
