Miharu Sapporo Ramen, Revisited

10 comments:
 
Miso Tonkotsu Ramen
There have been so many new ramen brands sprouting up across Singapore, but Miharu Sapporo Ramen still stands as a firm favourite. The ramen broth here is robust, salty and oily, as it ought to be. Too many ramen joints here tone down the saltiness to suit local palates.


Miso Tonkotsu Ramen
This is the Miso Tonkotsu Ramen (S$13). Hubby added lots of pepper and chili flakes to kick it up a spicy notch. He managed to drink up all the soup too. And washed it all down with a mug of Sapporo draft beer, which is deliciously light and clear-tasting.


Boiled Gyoza Dumplings
We also had boiled gyoza dumplings (S$6), a change from the usual pan-fried variety. There's a chunk of shrimp in each. That's a dollop of red miso paste at the side.


Tokusen Tonshio Ramen
I chose the Tokusen Tonshio Ramen (S$12.50), since I'm partial to shio ramen. Comes with only one slice of cha shu, but it's a thick slab. The ni-tamago (stewed egg) is with runny yolk which almost refuses to harden even when submerged in the hot soup. The sweetcorn is juicy, plump and crunchy. We were very glad the menma (bamboo shoots) were not "strong-tasting" as before. Thumbs up this time!


Tokusen Tonshio Ramen
As you can see, my left-handed chopsticks skills still need improvement, despite the practice from doing most of my own photo "stunts".


New dishes at Miharu
There are some new dishes that we didn't try. A seafood dashi based ramen called Gyokai Dashi and a white miso soup. There's a whole lot more on their menu.

It's been a long while since my last visit (my gosh, I was still using a cameraphone then!), but I should come back more often. This stuff satisfies!

  4. The ramen looks good, it's quite hard to find good ramen actually. We don't know where's the best place in KL. Glad you found one in Spore, hope we can visit it some day!

  5. I didn't even know there were left-handed chopsticks! :P

    Thumbs up for the boiled version of the gyoza... healthier, yes? And still full of flavour. :)

  7. GTF: coincidence indeed! lol

    SugarBean: KL has great food too! Like, you can't find good mamak mee goreng in Singapore!

    LFB: Kenny, yes they were healthier and heartier too, those boiled dumplings.

    Anon: well, it wasn't an issue for me or hubby, but maybe that's because we embrace oily food all too easily! I'm sure they'll be happy to oblige requests for less oil though.
