Kesuke Takeda – The Tonkotsu King
The amount of ramen my family and I eat averaged out to be one bowl a day – that’s at least 365 bowls a year. I wouldn’t claim to be a ramen connoisseur (because we usually eat at the same haunts) but this little ramen shop deserves a mention in my blog.
Many call the founder Keisuke but the menu states Kesuke (which could be a typo) and since I have not verified with the staff nor the man himself, I shall use the name Kesuke as is in print on the menu.
Kesuke’s Tonkotsu King, the ramen shop at Tanjong Pagar, goes back to basics of pork bones soup base, after feedback from Singaporean customers that we are not accustomed to his unique creation of ramen soup bases simmered with prawns and crabs.
Another late night dinner place we found near Sejong Korean Korean Language School.
Black and White Sesame to be ground (D.I.Y.) and put into the noodles as per your desire. There is also free flow of Hard-boiled Eggs (White shells are normal eggs and Brown shells are lower in cholesterol) and cold Bean Sprouts marinated with sesame oil. They are put on the table and you eat as much as you want.

P.S. Unlike Gekkazan, Ajisen Ramen and the other ramen-ya(s) in Melbourne which also serve sushi rolls and bento, Tonkotsu King Singapore specializes and sells only ramen in rich, full-bodied tonkotsu stock.
