Tampopo @ Takashimaya Shopping Centre

With the opening of ION Orchard and other new shopping malls along Orchard Road, the older malls along the stretch are frantically trying to revamp their malls to retain their shoppers.

Ngee Ann City has recently introduced some brand new food outlets and shopping brands in their mall, and Tampopo set up a new branch at Basement 2 of Ngee Ann City (next to MOS burger).


Had an order of the very popular Hokkaido Ramen. It comes with a slab of butter, char siew, sweet corn, fresh seaweed and a soft boiled egg. The noodles is springy, soup base is nice and the char siew is tender too. Fortunately, the soup was not too salty as other ramen shops. So finished every single drop of the soup. I am not sure why they added butter, perhaps to make the soup more creamy?

  1. I made a correction. it should be Hokkaido ramen, not Kyushu.

    I prefer the Hokkaido one (thick and chewey) compared to Kyushu one (thin and hard).

  2. Tried Shio hokkaido last week
    Nothing special here ... Still prefer marutama
