Best ramen in Singapore

Singaporeans love Japanese food, and it shows in the number of Japanese restaurants all around the island. Ramen in particular is a crowd favourite dish—every Singaporean mall you go to will likely have a ramen restaurant or two. To help you cut the fat, we’ve picked out some of the best ramen in Singapore the next time you’re looking to feast on this Japanese noodle dish. We’ve also included halal options!

1. Ebi Bar


While we often associate ramen with tonkotsu broth, fusion restaurant Ebi Bar shakes things up with their rendition of seafood ramen that nods to local hae mee, as well as the classic Japanese noodle dish. This hidden gem eatery in Cuppage Plaza has made waves for their Signature “Chao Da” Ebi Noodles ($15.90), comprising a prawn noodle broth made from 40kg of prawn shells, slowly simmered for over eight hours to extract all the crustacean’s natural umami goodness. Each portion also comes with QQ noodles, two huge charred tiger prawns, Hanjuku eggs, and pan-seared chicken breast. There’s no MSG that goes into the dish here, nor any pork or lard.

For those working in the Orchard or Somerset area and are looking for a unique lunchtime option, head down to Ebi Bar for satisfying prawn ramen that’s truly one-of-a-kind. The eatery is also a great pick to jio your friends to, the next time you are all looking for a novel dining experience.

2. Hokkaido Ramen Santouka

Hokkaido Ramen Santouka holds the acclaim of being one of Japan’s top ramen restaurants. First established in 1988 by Hokkaido native Hitoshi Hatanaka, the restaurant has since expanded out of Japan, bringing their famous pork cheek tonkotsu ramen wherever they open. Each serving of their Tokusen Toriniku Ramen ($23.90++) comes with your choice of soup base—shio, shoyu, miso, or spicy kara-miso—and slices of aged Iberico pork cheek that are a tender level-up from the usual chashu slices you get.

Address: 6 Eu Tong Sen Street, #02-76, The Central, Singapore 059817
Opening hours: Mon-Fri 12pm to 3pm, 5:30pm to 9pm, Sat-Sun 11:30am to 9pm

3. Takagi Ramen

Homegrown Takagi Ramen is founded by a Japanese law school dropout who has the goal of bringing affordable ramen to the Singaporean heartlands. Now, with eight outlets across the country, Takagi Ramen has achieved that goal and more. There are 10 ramen flavours on the menu, all priced under $10 nett. The Butashoga Ramen ($8.90) is their bestseller, comprising a shio-tonkotsu broth, and hand-pulled pork that is sautéed Chinese-style, with ginger and sweet soya sauce.

4. The Ramen Stall

The silky, collagen-rich broth at The Ramen Stall is the product of a painstaking, 30 hour-long slow-cooking process, where bones are steadily boiled to fully extract all their goodness. Their Volcano Chicken Ramen ($13.90++) is a must-try if you enjoy some spice with your ramen. You can also choose your spicy level to cater to your tolerance. Else, The Ramen Stall also has meatless ramen options! They’re also halal and open till late.

5. Ramen Keisuke Tori King

Paitan ramen is the star at Ramen Keisuke Tori King, one of the many names under the Ramen Keisuke franchise. The broth here is built on chicken bones, chicken feet, Japanese seaweed, and a medley of vegetables, collectively boiled for eight hours to achieve a comforting depth. Try this for yourself when you order their Tori King Ramen (from $12.90++), which comes with an entire roasted chicken leg, as well as runny Hanjuku eggs. Another perk about dining at Ramen Keisuke is the unlimited marinated beansprouts and hard-boiled eggs you get to enjoy as a starter!

Address: 100 Tras Street, #03-15, 100AM, Singapore 079027
Opening hours: Mon-Fri 11:30am to 2:30pm, 5pm to 9:30pm, Sat-Sun 11:30am to 9:30pm

6. Bari Uma

Hiroshima ramen chain Bari Uma is known for their heady tonkotsu broth, which they dub the strongest in Singapore. The attention to detail here is rigorous: Bari Uma makes their soup with ingredients imported from Japan, and the noodles are all made fresh in-house daily.

The Zeitaku-Uma Ramen ($23.90++) offers a little bit off everything, as it comes with their signature shoyu broth, QQ noodles, Hanjuku eggs, bamboo shoots, thick grilled pork belly slices, and other toppings. If you prefer a lighter soup, Bari Uma also offers more delicate shoyu-based ramen on their menu.

7. Ichikokudo Hokkaido Ramen 

Ichikokudo is Singapore’s leading halal ramen chain, with eight outlets islandwide. Their chicken broth is slow-cooked and layered with notes of bonito and mackerel, as well as air-flown Hokkaido kelp. They’ve got many ramen broths on the menu, ranging from shoyu to miso, but we recommend zoning into their Hokkai Ramen range, which is flavoured with sea salt, garlic, and fresh seafood. The Hokkaido Clams ($14.90++) option, for example, sees Asari clams adding a lovely brininess to the soup, while a pat of Hokkaido butter adds a sinful slick of fat to every spoonful.

8. Tonkotsu King Four Seasons

Another Keisuke outfit making this list is Tonkotsu King Four Seasons, where a unique concept inspired by the seasons takes centre stage. There are four tonkotsu ramen flavours you get to choose from—Spring (from $12.90++), seasoned with basil oil and cheese; Summer (from $13.90++), drizzled with chilli oil and a spicy pork mince; Autumn (from $13.90++), an umami powerhouse thanks to the addition of bonito and fried mushrooms; and Winter (from $11.90++), a no-frills bowl served with simple pork bone broth, and stir-fried pork slices perfumed with ginger.

Address: 158 Rochor Road, Bugis Village, Singapore 1884433
Opening hours: Mon-Fri 11:30am to 2pm, 5pm to 10pm, Sat-Sun 11:30am to 9:30pm

9. Menbaka

Menbaka, home of the theatrical fire ramen, drew hour-long queues when it first arrived in Singapore. Thankfully, the hype has pared back now, so you’ll have no trouble scoring a table. Bowls of ramen are set on fire before the eyes of diners, so you’ll get quite the show with every order. Get their Shoyu Fire Ramen ($17.90++), served with a chicken-based broth that is stewed with two types of dried fish, and a 200+ year-old blend of shoyu. Each bowl is generously topped with negi, as well as negi oil, so fair warning to the scallion-averse. Keep an eye out for their seasonal flavours too!

10. Torasho Ramen And Charcoal Bar

Torasho Ramen And Charcoal elevates tonkotsu ramen with twists that range from truffle ragout to uni. The bowls here are certainly luxurious, though their price points won’t hurt your wallet. Apart from their soupy options, Torasho has some dry ramen offerings that come highly recommended, including their signature Torasho Pork “Bak Chor Mee” (from $15++), a riff on the local hawker dish, with generous lashings of lard oil. They’ve also got a premium Cold Stupid Ramen ($69+++), served with multiple types of top-tier seafood, including langoustine, sea urchin, and ikura pearls.

Address: 32 Tras Street, Singapore 078972
Opening hours: Daily 11:30am to 3pm, 5:30pm to 11pm

11. Ramen Hitoyoshi

This franchise is the brainchild of two ex-Keisuke chefs, who’ve put their own spin on familiar ramen flavours. This fuss-free eatery is especially popular for their Tonkotsu with All Topping ($18.90++), featuring a medley of classic ramen toppings, as well as their labour-intensive soup, which is boiled for eight hours, then chilled overnight, before being reheated for service. The cooling process adds to the fattiness of the broth. Also, enjoy free-flow marinated beansprouts, as well as sweet corn here.

12. Ippudo

citi gourmet pleasures - IPPUDO

Ippudo is hard to exclude from a list of the best ramen in Singapore, given how they’re both ubiquitous and oh-so-reliable. They’ve got 11 outlets in Singapore, and a menu that’s got something for everyone, whether you’re craving a light or intense bowl of ramen, served with soup or dry. There are even plant-based options, and a healthy selection of other Japanese mains if you’re not in the mood for noods. Those stuck on what to order can get the Shiromaru Motoaji (from $16.35++), served with their OG tonkotsu broth.

13. Enishi


Enishi hails from Kobe, where they were awarded a place on the local Michelin Bib Gourmand list. They’ve brought the concept over to Singapore, but the eatery still goes the extra mile to import all their ingredients from Japan. There are only two items on the menu here, the dry Dan Dan Noodle ($19.80++), and the soupy Japanese Dashi Noodle (from $18.80++). The former comes with flatter wheat noodles, akin to mee pok but with a bite, and a dimensional mala seasoning that you can elevate with three types of house-made vinegars. The latter is a clear-broth ramen, livened with yuzu, and served with slices of smoked duck, as well as smoky chashu slices.

14. Kanada-Ya

Fukuoka is one of Japan’s big ramen cities, but if you’ve never had the chance to visit, you can get the goods locally at Kanada-Ya. The ramen eatery was established by a former keirin racer, and has since expanded globally. Their recipe features a broth that is boiled for 18 hours, to extra-slurpable, creamy ends. The Kotteri Tonkotsu Ramen (from $14.90++) is the house classic, but we recommend you try the Truffle Ramen (from $22.90++), where the broth is elevated by a black truffle jelly, and slices of truffle belly-cut chashu.

15. Ramen Nagi

Ramen Nagi Orchard

Ramen Nagi’s arrival in Singapore in 2017 was met with serious anticipation, as this brand is founded by Chef Ikuta Satoshi, winner of the prestigious Tokyo Ramen of the Year Championship. There are four main ramen flavours available, and you can tailor all the elements according to your flavour preferences. Go for the Original BUTAO King ($15.90++), with an award-winning tonkotsu broth, if you’re craving something simple. Else the Black King ($17.90++), which comes with a black garlic and squid ink-seasoned broth, is an aromatic powerhouse worth trying.

16. Hanamaruken Ramen

Osaka’s renowned Hanamaruken Ramen now has several outlets in Singapore, so you can enjoy their hearty tonkotsu ramen without having to get on a plane. The broth here is made from slowly simmering pork bones in shoyu for eight hours, resulting in its characteristic, savoury profile. We recommend trying their Signature Happiness Ramen ($22.80++), where you get your ramen served with a hulking, slow-braised pork rib! If that’s a bit too daunting for you, their Double Happiness ($19.80++) ramen is the more manageable version, served with a thick cut of chashu, and tender, gelatinous pork cartilage. 

Address: 51 Bras Basah Road, #01-07 Lazada One, Singapore 189554

17. Kajiken

Kajiken in Tanjong Pagar frequently sports long queues, and for good reason: they’re one of the best dry ramen spots in Singapore. The mazesoba joint brands themselves as Japan’s number one spot for the dry ramen dish, and they’ve got quite the variety for you to choose from. The house signature here is the Taiwan Mazesoba ($14.80++), which comes with spicy minced pork, nori, chopped scallions, and a runny egg. Mix them all together for 20 seconds—it’s what the Kajiken recommends—before digging in. Another popular menu item is the Grilled Cheese with Cod Roe Mazesoba ($18.30++), a super creamy, umami mazesoba that’ll hit the spot for carbonara fans.

Address: 1 Tras Link, #01-03 Orchid Hotel Singapore, Singapore 078867
Opening hours: Daily 11am to 9:30pm

18. Tonkotsu Kazan Volcano Ramen

If you’re looking for good ramen that’s got some novelty to it, then Tonkotsu Kazan is a great restaurant to check out. They’re best known for their Beef Sukiyaki Kazan ($18.80++) ramen, where diners get their noodles served in a piping hot stone bowl, topped with a mountain of sukiyaki beef shaped to resemble a volcano. It’s quite the interactive experience, as you get to watch hot broth poured over your ramen to “cook” the beef. If that’s too much of a fuss for you, then they’ve also got regular ramen offerings from $13.80++.

19. Nantsuttei


Award-winning ramen restaurant Nantsuttei hails from Tokyo, and has become renowned for their shoyu ramen topped with “ma-yu”, a black garlic oil made from the chef’s secret recipe. So, if you’re a fan of black garlic ramen, Nantsuttei is the restaurant to visit. Try their Chashu-men ($17++) if you want to have a taste of their signature. Each comes with their QQ ramen and their tender chashu, made with high-quality pork loin. If you love your ramen spicy, then try their Hot Miso Ramen ($17++), with customisable spice levels.

Hakata Ikkousha’s ramen offerings are relatively simple: you choose between different types of broth bases, whether it be shoyu, shio, or miso, and have that with a selection of classic toppings. What sets them apart, however, is their 20-hour ramen broth, which imparts whatever ramen you order with an intense depth of flavour. Prices start at $14++ for their Tonkotsu Shio ramen.
