We’re offering 6 kinds of Ramen.
- TonkotsuHonda Shoten
- A new take on an old idea. Opened in 2001, this is a new, evolved take on the ever popular Kurume ramen spot, Echigo Marufuku Ramen. Here is a ramen for the new generation, created by fusing long-respected traditions of this tonkotsu motherland with new, updated technique.
- TasteAuthentic Tonkotsu Ramen
- The milky-white tonkotsu ramen is a well-known classic of Japan. It originated in Kurume City, Fukuoka prefecture, at a ramen stall called Nankinsenryo that opened in 1937. Latedr passed on to Hakata, today, tonkotsu is loved all over the nation and the world. It is typically coupled with extra-thins, straight noodles, with a water content between 24% - 28% or lower, which allows it to be blend well with the broth. Its distinct, appetising aroma that comes from Kurume pork bones sets this ramen apart.
- After apprenticing for 15 years at the famous Iekei ramen shop, Rokkakuya, the king of Tonkotsu, Naoaki Sakuta, presents us the alluring spirit of Iekei.
- TasteYokohama Iekei Ramen
- A chain of ramen restaurants serving a style of ramen that originated from the famous Yoshimuraya of Yokohama, which opened in1974. Because of the Chinese character "Ie" (meaning "house" or "family", also pronounced as "ya") in their shop names, these ramen shops are called Iekei or Ie-style. To be called an "Iekei", the head chef will need to have apprenticed at either Yoshimuraya, Rokkakuya, or other shops that are in direct lineage of the two shops. It is said that the categorisation and franchising of these shops are often complicated, sometimes even culminating in "Ie Scandals". There are many categories within the family line, among them, the Direct style, Historical style, Independent style and Ichi style. Theire calling card is their toppings known as "Iekei's three sacred tools":chiyu(chicken oil), nori(dried seawood), and spinach.
- Inspired by the Jiro-styleChibakara
- This is the ultimate Jiro-inspired ramen created by the owner-craftsman, who has the Jiro DNA in him. The owner is a true Jiro-lian, who grew up in front of the Ramen Jiro shop, and has frequented the shop ever since middle school. Unable to accept compromise, he is earnest and careful in the creation of this truly satisfying taste, a process whick took close to two years.
- TasteJiro-style Ramen
- The name comse from the shop, "Ramen Jiro", which opened in 1968 in Tokyo's Meguro Ward near Tokyo Metropolitan University. Its mountain of vegetables and chunk of char siew(roasted pork) create a bold, unmistakable sight. The style has garnered many ardent fans, the so-called "Jiro-lians", who are either fans of Jiro-style ramen, or those who are not particularyl ramen fans but are passionately drawn to Jiro ramen specifically. Some even say "Jiro isn't ramen, it's simply food called Jiro." They are also known fore thier own special ordergin methods, such as @Yasai-abura-karame-ninniku(Vegetables-oils-sauce-garlic)."

It first appeared at the ramen store "Ezawa", and features onions and minced pork fried in chili oil, which are added to a soy sauce base. It does not include sesame paste.

In 2010, Takumen opened an online ramen store "宅麺.com(takumen.com)" to deliver a wide variety of ramen. Our goal is to offer a new way to enjoy ramen, delivering you quality ramen - especially from popular shops where queues are inevitable - that have the identical flavour you will find at the shops, to savour in the comfort of your home.
Now, for the first time, we have established a branch here in Singapore, featuring a range of ramen from selected ramen shop owners, and crafted with thought and care in order to deliver an authentic Japanese flavour to an audience beyond the shores of Japan. The creators have put their hearts and souls into their ramen, and so we have gone through repeated trial and error to adapt to the local water and ingredients, while still maintaining the authentic Japanese flavours. We offer only dishes approved by each shop owner.
The same broth that you enjoy from each shop is properly cooked from scratch, and combined with a special soup base, the secret "kaeshi"(sauce), from each chef sent directly from Japan. From here, we recreate the taste, the richness, and the flavour of each shop's secret formula. The results are, in a word, delicious. We invite you to relish the flavours of these six first-class shops.
Cooked for long periods over high heat, our soups are carefully strained and watched over to ensure that they don't burn. Also, in order to ensure that the soup has the same flavour as the original, not only the temperature and cooking time, but also salt content and thickness are meticulously checked during the manufacturing process. We add the secret tare-sauce bases deliverd direct from Japan to our freshly-cooked soups, and go to great lengths to achieve the same taste that you can enjoy in Japan.
We promise to deliver to you unmatched flavour - not only tonkotsu, but a wide and rich array of Japanese flavours - and we promise that you wiil savour the perfect bowl of ramen.
