The Teppan and sauce makes the rice really fragrant and I love the egg!
If you like the burnt part of Claypot rice, you will definitely love this!

GYOZA ($6/5pc)
The skins are pan-fried to perfection, but I wish there were more flavour for the fillings and saltier.

What's cooking?

We ordered the signature

The ramen uses Tonkotsu broth simmered with pork marrow, pork, collagen and fats. Lots of garlic were added to the base, thus, you might have a garlicky breath aftermath.

Fresh garlics and a tool will be served upon request for you to squash out the garlic paste, which indeed made the soup more flavoursome!

The egg served with the ramen was a hard boiled egg, with option to add on a runny yolked egg with $1.50. Many might be disappointed with this serving, but I heard there's a reason why hard boiled was chosen. The runny yolk was difficult to stay intact in the soup, and might change the taste of the broth while it's "melting" inside.

Looking for some spiciness?
Other than the typical chilli powder, you may want to add in these spicy chives!
