Brace yourselves, Ramen-iacs! You can now taste the authentic Japanese Ichiran Ramen from October 3 to 20 in Takashimaya Singapore food festival.
If you’re wondering what the big deal is about Ichiran Ramen, read why it’s so special. The Ichiran brand started way back in the 1960s in Fukuoka with a revolutionary fusion of magic ingredients that make up terrific ramen—tonkotsu base, original spicy red sauce and an aromatic tonkotsu broth. It’s very popular in Japan for the sumptuous bowls of tonkotsu ramen served in private booths—probably the first stop every ramen lover makes in Japan.
Not just their ingredients, even their serving etiquette revolutionised the way people experience ramen. Not everyone likes to socialise right? Ichiran introduced closed dining booths so people could enjoy their ramen without being barged into. So Ichiran is all about the experience more than the food! Did you know the main branch in Fukuoka is a seven-storey building? Just imagine!
Takashimaya Square is famous for something other than shopping—the recurring festivals that it hosts! From mid-Autumn festival to Christmas markets, Singapore sure knows how to celebrate life! But the food festival tops it all—it is one of the few times when Singaporeans come together for food+good times. So it’s no wonder why the big brand chose this window to launch it’s pop-up in Singapore.
The festival will be serving instant noodles instead of fresh noodles, only 700 bowls per day, topped with spicy wood ear mushroom choppings and red sauce.
Christmas markets? We are coming back, Singapore! But now, it’s for ramen!
