Ramen Ten: Stomach Killer

9.45 p.m. on New Year's Eve, and this was the only restaurant still surviving in the vicinity.

Tomyum Beef Ramen

Tomyum Beef Ramen,   S$8.90++,   

A nice touch of Thai and Japanese mix. The tomyum soup was spicy and sour enough, although the colour didn't seemed really right. Ramen noodles and beef slices were thin, absorbing the rich tomyun flavour from the soup, yet retaining their original tastes.

Teriyaki Salmon Dry Ramen

Teriyaki Salmon Dry Ramen,   S$9.90++,   

Ramen Ten is the first originator of dry ramen dishes in Singapore, like this. The noodles were soft and springy - quite likeable for someone who've never fancied ramen. However, the ramen and salmon were flooded by some kind of sour and spicy sauce, and not the teriyaki sauce as promised in the menu. The more you eat this dish, the more you will grow sick of it.

Chocolate Freeze

Chocolate Freeze,   S$4.90++,   

This restaurant doesn't serve plain water, so we were made to order (expensive) drinks. S$1.50++ for a bland tea bag Hot Green Tea, and S$4.90++ for this glass of Chocolate Freeze.

First impressions was that it tasted like Milo Dinosaur from a prata store, and only on second taste, it was pretty not bad - thick, milky and chocolatey. But for its price, I think I'm better off having my Milo Dinosaur.

The reason for calling this restaurant a "stomach killer", because I ended up with a good reward of food poisoning from them. Apart from the three other Ramen Ten outlets (namely Far East Plaza, Jubilee, and Orchard Point), this is the first and only outlet to be semi-open-air. As far as hygiene is concerned, I leave it up to you all the decide. Food pushed out of the kitchen were left at the counter, until some (attentive) servers pick them up, (they were all busy chatting), and houseflies could be seen flying all around. Clean indeed.
