Chinatown is no doubt a food paradise in Singapore, with a good mix of street hawkers as well as chic restaurants and bars. Adding to that list is Takeshi Noodle Bar (under the same team as Tipsy Penguin and Lady Wu) – a hipster and very futuristic ramen bar nestled within the new Hotel Soloha. Unlike your typical ramen joint, Takeshi Noodle Bar offers unique and fusion ramens such as Singapore’s first-ever Seafood Mala Ramen, Truffle Mentaiko Linguine and many more! Diners can also build their own ramen according to their preferences. Complete your ramen experience with their mouth-watering sides such as Mentaiko Oysters, Grilled Striploin and Gyoza!
So, what are you waiting for? Gather all your friends and head down for a 🍜 party! Psst! They have an extensive drinks menu too!
I had a hard time deciding what to get because they all looked so yummy in the menu. You can probably solve this by bringing more friends over (so can order more to try). Portion was really hearty! For those who loves to take ootd, this is the place to go to as well! Will share more photos of the interior at the end but food comes first! haha!
Mentaiko Oysters // $5 (per piece) and $13 (3pcs) NETT
Can’t seem to find any reason to not like Mentaiko Oysters! Torched to perfection, the oysters (plump and juicy) were filled with creamy mentaiko flavour.
Grilled Striploin // $18 for 200g NETT
Striploin was well-grilled, tender and flavourful. Love the garlic chips atop of it. Best to have it when it’s hot!
Salmon Shio Yaki // $12 NETT
Thank god the salmon wasn’t overly cooked! It was also well-seasoned!
Gyoza (Chicken/Pork) // $8 (5pcs) NETT
Not too bad! Love the slightly burnt edges at the bottom!
Seafood Szechuan Mala Iberico Tonkotsu // $21.90 NETT
At first glance (me included), you might think that it’s a tad expensive for a bowl of ramen! But I can assure you it’s worth the money spent! Just take a look at the amount of premium seafood in the ramen! The mala broth was really addictive – literally had to force myself to stop drinking the soup and start eating the noodles. It wasn’t too spicy but it still packs a punch. Handmade noodles were springy and the egg was 😍
Honey Roasted Iberico Pork with Burnt Miso Iberico Tonkotsu // $15.90 NETT
If you’re looking for a more classic and safe option, this is the ramen to go for! One thing to note is that they made their Char Siew themselves. The fat to meat ratio was good!
Sliced Wagyu Beef with Truffle Iberico Tonkotsu // $23.90 NETT
Did you just say Truffle? I’m up for it 🙋🏻♂️ Broth was really fragrant and a twisted #noodlepull cos my stomach was very satisfied!
Truffle Mentaiko Linguine with Aburi Salmon and Ikura // $20 NETT
Truffle & Mentaiko = BEST of BOTH WORLDS! This was definitely my FAV ramen at Takeshi Noodle Bar! Totally spoilt my dieting plan but it’s worth every single calories! Creamy, flavourful and just shiok lah!
As promised, here’s some interior shots I took at the ramen bar! You can see where you want to take your ootd at!
