Mr Ramen

When one's stall happens to be as jejunely named as Mr Ramen, it is only reasonable to expect some mere pusillanimous slate offered up - anyhow this bubba has fared a scintilla better by at least being derivative, which thus means there's laksa, mala, truffle-infused etc noodle bowls going around, though you will do well disregarding the exasperatingly superfluous donburi options or yawn-worthy deep-fried sides.

Opened last April, Mr Ramen now operates three outlets in Chinatown, Toa Payoh ("probed" herein for our latest gustatory undertaking) and Seletar. Customers patronizing the former two can enjoy 20% off all items till 30 June 2023.

What knocked our socks off:

The infernal Mala Tofu Ramen scored a categorical home run: saliently picante, Bolognese-ish pastiche of sorts that surfeited with alternating chewy and curdled goodness. Contrarily, the Truffle Ramen while pointedly aromatic brothwise (kudos indeed for an ungrudging truffle paste + oil application) got slightly discounted owing to gristle-evident, just south of tender chashu slices rendering absolute enjoyment untenable, ie it was good, yet could have been great.

Mala Tofu Ramen ($6.90)

Truffle Ramen ($11.90)

Other item(s) sampled but turned out to be non-event(s):

Pork Katsu Don ($6.90)
