Ramen Champion

[Sponsored Event] 

Was invited to attend a food tasting event on 2nd October at Ramen Champion by Malcolm. Thank you so much for the invite, I really appreciate it. :)

I've never eaten at Ramen Champion before, but I've heard people raving about it, so I've decided to attend this event and try it out myself.

Before the food tasting session, they actually had another event at earlier in the afternoon, which was the qualifying round of the Ramen Big Eater Challenge, I didn't attend the event so I'm unsure of it.

The final round will be held on 14th November 2013 (Thursday), 3pm to 5pm at Ramen Champion Great World City, (1 Kim Seng Promenade, Great World City, #01-21/22, Singapore 237994).

The outlet at Great World City will be officially open on early November 2013 by the way. :)

First, we were served with the appetizer. Prawn Dipping Sauce With Cracker. We couldn't really taste the prawn, but we did taste abit of garlic inside the sauce though, as for the crackers, its just normal crackers.

The Ramen came shortly after we have finished our appetizer. The gave us 2 different bowls of Ramen, the one in red bowl is called Tonkotsu-Ramen Champion and the one in black is Special Tonkotsu Ramen, both priced at $16.50. Tonkotsu-Ramen Champion is more well liked by the ladies, but for me, I like the Special Tonkotsu Ramen instead, because I feel that the soup has lesser flavor. I don't know, maybe its just me. Haha!

Adding on, I like Special Tonkotsu Ramen's rich and milky taste! :D

Gyoza
Price: $6.00

Slightly crispy on the outside, and soft on the inside. Initially I thought seafood would be wrapped inside the skin of the Gyoza, but its not, its pork and added with a dip of the sauce, it goes really well. But the sauce is a tad salty for me though.

Chashu Carpaccio 
Price: $7.00

Served with sliced chashu with abit of spice, onions, and cherry tomatoes. Some of them commented that its a tad spicy, but for me, the taste of the spice wasn't there. I think it depends on individuals tastebuds though. I kinda like this dish.

Garlic Butter Potato
Price: $5.00

This WAS very salty!!!! It feels as though I've eaten a tea spoon of salt! But that aside, the potato are nice though! Just remove the salt, it will be alot more better.

Deep-Fried Toufu With Japanese Sauce
Price: $4.00

I really love Deep-Fried Tofu because of its crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. Not forgetting dipping it with sauces. :)

But for Ramen Champion's deep-fried tofu was kind of disappointing as I feel that the skin of their tofu wasn't that crispy as I thought it would be. I think partially is because it is put in with the Japanese sauce, therefore the Tofu have already soaked in the sauce. Maybe if they separate the deep-fried tofu from the Japanese sauce, it will be better.

Sukuyaki Bun
Price: $3

Absolutely love this dish! The bun is like those normal "KONG BAK" bun, but instead of the usual "kong bak", they used sliced marinated pork belly, which turns out awesome! The good part is that when you eat it with your chopsticks, the fillings doesn't drop out at all!
