From traditional ramen by Japanese chefs to newfangled variants with fusion flavours, we’re in no shortage of ramen options here. But it’s not every day that you come across a  ramen stall in a coffeeshop setting, selling a piping bowl of legit Japanese noods at just $8 a pop. Started by a former chef from popular Hokkaido ramen chain Ramen Santouka, Ramen King offers that and more.

The new hawker stall sits in an unassuming location in a coffeeshop along Tampines Street 81, but it seems to have already drawn a fair amount of crowd in its opening week, with queues for their Tonkotsu Ramen.

According to Chef Simon Song, their signature Tonkotsu broth is made from scratch with a four-step preparation method, which involves letting it rest at intervals over three days. At the final stage, the broth is laid down in a room at 25 degrees Celcius for half a day. The tedious process results in a light yet umami pork bone broth that’s layered with flavours. Their yellow egg noodles are said to be made with two types of wheat for a slight chew, and a satisfying texture.

Those who want a punchier flavour can try their Kurobuta Toroniku Spicy Miso Ramen ($15), which pairs the creamy Tonkotsu broth with a kick of spice, along with slices of slow-cooked roasted pork AKA char-siu.

If you’re still peckish, get a side of Cheese Gyoza ($6 for five) to share. Alternatively, share the regular Gyoza ($5.50 for five) for a more classic taste.

Easties can get to Ramen King via a 10-minute walk from Tampines West MRT Station, or a short bus ride from Tampines MRT Station. Those who prefer to stay at home can opt for delivery on GrabFood and Foodpanda.
