Keisuke Laksa Ramen for SG50
Laksa ramen: it's so good! Keisuke Takeda the Ramen King has concocted this beautifully intense bowl to celebrate Singapore's birthday and his Tonkotsu King outlet's anniversary in August.
Only 50 bowls a day will be prepared each day at the Suntec City outlet. Proceeds go to the Tanjong Pagar community and the underprivileged, as with previous years.
I had a sneak preview of this incredible laksa ramen when I went to review his Ginza Tendon Itsuki shop selling tempura-don. You can taste how much effort went into the spices alone. At only S$15, this is a steal. It's only going to be available for the month of August. I wish it could be a permanent item.
This is Keisuke's first local flavour ramen. He picked laksa because he likes it. I think he has done a fabulous job giving it his own interpretation. It is evident he loves strong flavours, and so do I, so this was perfect for my palate. Some people may find it a little too rich but for me, that's never a problem.
It does sort of remind you of curry noodles though. But in a good way.
The laksa comes with additional "sambal" for you to tune up the chili heat, if preferred. You will also be served this crispy rice cake (somewhat like the crispy burnt rice at the bottom of claypots) for you to dunk into the laksa broth and enjoy.
