Ramen Champion at Great World City

Being a ramen lover, I love travelling around and try out the different ramen stores. This time round, I visited Ramen Champion @ Great World City.

Thanks Ramen Champion for the invitation to their new outlet at Great World City, this was my first time trying out at Ramen Champion. I'm already looking forward to the dinner spread.

Other than Great World City, Ramen Champion also had 2 more outlets in Singapore at Bugis+ and Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 3.

Since it started in 2011, the ULTIMATE RAMEN CHAMPION competition has established itself to be a favourite amongst lovers of Japanese cuisine.

Four brands are represented at Ramen Champions' new outlet at Great World City. New brands from Japan: Butaou and Miyamoto, with existing ramen brands Tonkotso Itto and Bishamon Zero. We would be trying out the ramen from each stall later on.

Visiting our first stop, Bishamon Zero.

Bishamon Zero maintains the original flavors from Sapporo, Hokkaido – the capital of ramen in Japan. A brand that is represented in Ramen Champion outlets in Singapore and Hong Kong, Bishamon Zero serves up three varieties of “must-try” ramen cooked to perfection with a minimum of 7 hours spent daily on making the broth.

Okonomiyaki Gyoza with bonito flakes - $5.80.

I love the gyoza so much. 
The thickness of the skin was just right. It was crispy on the outer and tender on the inner. The meat was juicy good. Eat it while it is hot.

Mentaiko Gyoza - $5.80.

Gyoza with spicy mentaiko sauce. Compared to Okonomiyaki Gyoza, Mentaiko Gyoza tasted more flavourful as it spiced up my appetite. I'm craving for more now.

Tori Karaage - $4.80.

Fried chicken is my all time favourite. It was piping hot when arrived, I dipped it with mayonnaise and it tasted marvelous. I tried it without the sauce and it tasted a little salty. Dip it with mayonnaise for the perfect balance.

Sapporo Miso Special Ramen - $14.80.

This is my favourite ramen of all.

Being cooked for 7 hours, the broth was indeed flavourful. It has the best soup base that I ever had. I helped myself with a spoonful of the tasty soup, it was really addictive. The portion for char siew was generous, there were 3 big char siew in it. I had tried before many ramen at other place with only one pathetic char siew and I paid almost the same price.

Second stop: Tonkotsu Itto.

Ranked as the no. 1 ramen shop in Tokyo and featured on Asia Best-Ever Dining Awards, Tonkotsu Itto’s Hakata style ramen is a popular choice among Japanese and ramen lovers.

Special Tonkotsu Ramen - $16.50.

Yet another delicious ramen with the broth is milky white and thick to my liking. The char siew slices were tender and the egg was boiled to perfection. See the nice orange slightly running egg yolk, it is super delicious.

Third stop: Miyamoto.

Miyamoto won the award of 2012 Narita City Most Popular Ramen, was named the first runner up in the awards of–2013 Narita City Most Popular Ramen, and 2012 Gurutto Chiba Most Impressive Ramen.

Pork and Vegetable Ramen - $16.

Highly recommended for vegetable lovers. The portion for bean sprouts and cabbage was really generous. It was served with thick and curly noodles (mee pok).

Last stop: Butaou.

Butaou was awarded Outstanding Ramen Rookie Award at Hong Kong’s The Ultimate Ramen Champion competition, its ramen distinguishes itself by the sweetness in their Sukiyaki Ramen. It has a sweet taste profile, which differs from other ramen, which have salty taste profiles.

Spicy Chicken (3 pcs) - $5.

Zest the lemon to add flavouring to the spicy chicken wings. I love the combination of the savoury and spicy taste that linger on my tongue. The skin was super crispy and the meat was juicy. Having just one chicken wing per person was definitely not enough for us, we ordered another plate of 6 for sharing.

Special Sukiyaki Ramen - $16.

The soy based soup enhanced the flavour of the pork slices as well as the noodles, making it taste succulent. The pork slices were really soft and chewy. The egg was rather special, it was semi-cooked. We decided to burst the egg yolk, creating an emulsion and mix it with the ramen. The taste of the soup become better and flavoursome.

Thanks Ramen Champion for the invitation. I enjoyed the food here very much. I will be back soon again, I am already craving for the ramen.
