The hype: Showcasing the best of Ramen Keisuke all in one place is Ramen Dining Keisuke Tokyo, with a second outlet at Resorts World Sentosa. The brand’s large medley of ramen options are featured here, including the Lobster Broth Ramen, previously only available exclusively at Clarke Quay’s Ramen Keisuke Lobster King. Come for their locally-inspired, seasonal menu too.
The vibe: Situated at The Forum’s basement in RWS, the Japanese restaurant boasts an inviting space thanks to its bright, airy and spacious interior. To watch the chefs meticulously prepare your meals, reside by the counter.
The food: Plenty of the ramen chain’s umami offerings lie in wait here. Love the signature Tonkotsu Ramen? Have at it. Prefer chicken stock? Order the Tokyo Shoyu Ramen.
There’s even the lobster broth range, that was once only available at Ramen Keisuke Lobster King at Clarke Quay. The Black Spicy Lobster Broth Ramen ($14.90) is a real treat, and so is the Lobster Tsukemen (Dipping Noodles).
Another highlight is the seasonal menu. For Ramen Dining Keisuke Tokyo’s first year at Sentosa, three locally-inspired ramens will be made available on rotation every three months. Behold the Keisuke Mee Pok ($15.90); a love letter to our favourite hawker meal, and the Keisuke Laksa Ramen ($15.90), teeming with spice from the additional dollop of Kara-Miso paste.
The Keisuke Bak Kut Teh Ramen ($15.90) also steals hearts, with thinly-pulled noodles and generous portions of spare ribs. Plus, it’s served with fried garlic and fried dough fritters, so you may soak the crisp and chewy pieces in the clear and peppery soup.
The drinks: Complement the hearty bowls with Coedo craft beers. Definitely try the Beniaka ($15), a beer brewed with roasted Kintoki sweet potatoes from Saitama, Japan, giving the alcoholic beverage an interesting, earthy aroma.
Why you’ll be back: Ramen Dining Keisuke Tokyo is well-worth the travel into the famed lifestyle destination due to the wide array of ramen offerings. The seasonal menu that sees a unique combination of local and Japanese flavours is just icing on the cake.
