Ramen fans face no shortage of options to satisfy their cravings, but if you are looking to experience the best of what Singapore has to offer, Kanada-Ya stands out as an undisputed champion. With several branches around the city, they have built a reputation as the go-to spot for anyone looking for a truly authentic bowl of ramen.

Kanada-Ya have recently launched new mentaiko dishes that will blow your mind (literally), as it comes with a “deadly twist”.

The menu features a variety of mouthwatering mentaiko dishes.

Of which, we recommend the Mentaiko Takoyaki ($8.9) for an unforgettable experience. In Russian roulette form, one out of four takoyaki balls contain wasabi. You can either try your luck and enjoy it randomly, or be creative and play your own game to determine who will be the unlucky one. We downloaded a Russian roulette app on our phone.

Other dishes are Mentaiko Fries, Mentaiko Gyoza and Mentaiko Fried Chicken.

Award-winning ramen

Whether you prefer a rich and creamy tonkotsu broth or a light and refreshing yuzu broth, there is something on the menu for every palate.

The Chashu Tonkotsu Ramen (special) ($20.9) won me over instantly. The signature tonkotsu broth was complex and earthy. The noodles, perfectly cooked to the right level of chewiness, soaked up the flavourful broth. And as if the broth itself wasn’t sinful enough, the fatty chashu pork belly immersed in it, only injected it with more flavour.

The ramen was also topped with the perfectly cooked soft-boiled eggs with a gooey center, and seaweed.

While a classic tonkotsu broth was comforting, the Truffle Ramen (special) ($26.9) — awarded as the best truffle ramen in the world — was my favourite. Infused with the unmistakable aroma of truffles, it’s a decadent twist from the traditional Japanese ramen. The noodle soaked up every last drop of the delicious truffle concoction and it was truly unforgettable.

Compared to the chashu in the Tonkotsu Ramen, this chashu pork belly was fattier and more tender.
