Goku Raku Ramen, Paradigm Mall

Those who knows me well will know that I am an avid fan of Ramen....
So ofc I jumped with joy when my dad suggested to have Goku Raku Ramen for dinner! =D
Goku Raku Ramen has a modern & sleek interior, with a touch of Japanese, here & there.
Goku Raku Ramen also retained the Japanese Ramen Tradition of the "Open Kitchen Concept" and bar seats. All the seats in Ramen Specializing Stores in Japan has this kind of seating
Mini Vege Salad
Lettuce, tomatoes & capsicums topped with some chips & drizzled with Japanese Salad Dressing.
No salad can go wrong with Japanese Salad Dressings :) However, the chips felt a little...soft, rather than crunchy.
Aburi Char Siew
Char Siew, cooked to perfection, on a bed of onions.
The char siew was perfect. Right proportion of fats to lean meat, aromatic & rich pork-y flavours infused with onions.
Tokyo Ramen (Shoyu) M size
Springy ramen in Shoyu broth, topped with Bamboo Shoots, Seaweeds, Naruto, Spring Onions & Char Siew
Broth was flavourful & refreshing. It is less oily compared to the Tonkotsu broth. I'd prefer the murky tonkotsu broth over this though =p
Tonkotsu Ramen S
Ramen in Tonkotsu broth, topped with an Ajitama, Char Siew, Spring Onions, Seaweed & Bamboo Shoot.
The Tonkotsu broth was delightfully rich in flavours. I could finish the whole bowl of soup on my own! Noodles were springy. But I think I'd prefer Musashi Ramen's version as the noodles at Musashi are more springy & bouncy, and the broth at Musashi is richer in flavours too.
But I think Goku Rake wins Musashi on their toppings- Goku Raku uses bamboo shoot instead of black fungus which Musashi uses. Goku Raku's Char Siew is definitely better than Musashi's, it felt more smooth & tender.

Overall Rating: 7.5/10
Goku Raku Ramen serves up pretty good ramens, but personally, I'd still prefer Musashi over Goku Raku. But don't get me wrong, I love Goku Raku too =D
