We bought the promotional voucher for this cafe and dropped by during lunch to taste it
Due to unforeseen circumstances and a last minute birthday celebration for a collegue, I patronised this dull ramen place. The service at the counter is good I must say, just that the food needs alot of improvement. The negi ramen is surprisingly better than the spicy ramen I had the last time, the soup broth is okay.
The only good thing here is the uncle that takes the order at the counter. Patient, he explains what is best for your preference. That cannot be said for the soup. Ramen lovers, please avoid this place. The noodle tastes like those that you can purchase off shelves at supermarkets. The soup is inferior compared to others. Not thick, no fragrance. My spicy ramen was spicy due to the chilli padi added into the soup. Very chinese-like style. The cha shu meat is dry and quite tough to bite, not to the extent that you must use alot of force but you\'ll know what I mean if you eat ramen long enough, The tamago is a joke, it\'s a typical egg though it oozes a little. The egg was white in color Stay far, unless you are into cheaply priced ramen going at as low as $8++. Oh, no service charge too at this outlet
Was on my way to TCC Novena Square when I was lured by the cute decor of Ramen Monster to take a second look. I should have followed my instincts that "cute" and "ramen" don\'t go well together. But I admit, $7.90 for a tonkotsu ramen sounds tempting, I was hoping to find a cheap joint for that cloudy-bone-boiled-for-hours-soup that I so love. There was no one else that the restaurant when I visited at 5pm. I ordered the tonkontsu ramen, which looked so appetising on the menu with a pair of beautiful onsen runny braised egg. There are a choice of noodles: Kyushu(thin) or Hokkaido(thick and spring)and cha shu: Original or Lean. I was impressed that I can have a choice of noodles. Add $3 and you can get 3pcs gyoza and free flow drinks. Added them up as I was hungry at that time. The bowl of ramen presented to me, look nothing like the picture. The whole egg, uncut was dunked deep under the noodles, the cha shu pieces looks like pieces of unwanted meat, all irregular in sizes, with thick layers of fat and not braised. I couldn\'t smell any aroma either, in fact it was so disappointing that I couldn\'t even bother to take a pic of my food (which i usually do) and proceed to dip my spoon in to try a sip of the soup. Salty, yet bland. Next i put in my chopsticks and realised the noodles quantity is pretty small. A little disappointed as I was very hungry. Bite test was ok, but it tasted very alkali and just like the instant ramen i bought in Tokyo. Lousy ones I must add. But I have to admit the gyoza is OKAY. Food bad, service bad.
On a lazy afternoon, we were attracted by the adorable cartoons of ramen monsters by this little shop at the corner of Velocity, Novena Square. We dropped in Ramen Monster without much expectations and, fortunately, we were pleasantly surprised…

THE FOOD:

With a choice between thin and thick noodles, we chose thin for the char siew ramen and thick for the tonkotsu ramen. Both types of noodles were al dente and pretty springy.

First came the char siew ramen ($10.90) with pretty lean meat soaked in thick broth is nonetheless succulently delicious. On the other hand, the tonkotsu ramen ($7.90) was a tad disappointing – the meat was slightly too tough and not fatty enough.

Portion wise, the dishes at Ramen Monster are a tad smaller than usual but just right for us girls. Guys may need to upsize ($3) for gyoza and a drink.

We later heard that the Spicy Ramen is good from the table next to us and that there's no MSG in the broth – a rare treat dining outside.

In all, the ramen at Ramen Monster wouldn't be the best or comparable to that of ramen masters at Santouka or Ippudo. However, it is good enough as an affordable lunch nearby office.

THE MOOD:

The bright and colourful shop is peddled by the cute cartoon ramen monsters donned on the wall. Tables and chairs are basic, and easily moved to accommodate big groups by the helpful staff.

I went with my friend to eat Ramen at Ramen Monster! The Pork ramen at Ramen Monster is fantastic. The egg is well-cooked but soft to sink my teeth into. The most important thing, is the broth is splendid. I also like that the pork slices are rich, thick and succulent. I love ramen as it is springy and delicious. The combinationis just superb! It is quite affordable as it costs about $12.90. The seaweed is a great appetizer as it improves my appetite! Bon Appetit !
