Very Disappointing Ramen
Ramen Kagetsu Arashi looks good from the outside. The orange and black theme gives the whole restaurant a cheerful vibe. The menu looks good and the price is low for a ramen restaurant.
Despite the good first impression, it all went to waste once the food came. Of all the Ramen I’ve tried, this has to be one of the worst. Their noodles are stringy, and the tonkotsu broth is thin and way too salty. The greatest crime of all was the hard boiled eggs. It was yellow all the way through. They weren’t even trying.
I do love my ramen.
Star Vista isn't exactly a place I frequent, me living in the east and all, but I admire the variety of food options available there. Since I was experiencing a great ramen craving that day, I decided to visit Ramen Kagetsu Arashi, a ramen eatery I've never stepped foot into before.
The prices are similar to any other ramen chain out there - Ajisen, Yoshimaru etc. The food, similarly, is pretty average - I'd say better than Ajisen, but a lot less tasty than Yoshimaru. In other words, nothing to write home about.
This is not worth the trip to visit it if you live in the east, but if you just seek mid-priced, decent ramen at Star Vista, then I suppose this is the place for you.
Great Ramen, Quick Service
I had my eye on this Japanese restaurant for quite a while, seeing that I often go past the Tampines 1 outlet.
And so, finally, when I happened to be at the mall for lunch, I went straight here. They were having a promotion for their Golden Miso Ramen and it looked really good as well so I thought, why not. Despite them being slightly shorthanded at the time, service was still good and prompt. I had my order taken with no hiccups and was immediately given not just a glass of water, but a full pitcher as well for my convenience.
My order arrived not much later and was fresh and warm. I was wearing glasses, so all the steam really got to me. But, when it comes to food, steam is definitely a good sign. The ramen was tasty and ‘Q’. For ramen that’s not that expensive ($12-ish), I was quite impressed by the quality. The broth was also rich but not too overpowering. They were also generous with the ingredients! Overall, it was an immensely satisfying bowl of ramen.
The next time I’m here, I hope to try a different kind of ramen broth and maybe some side dishes as well!
