Takagi Ramen @ Ang Mo Kio



Located at the heartland of Ang Mo Kio, this small little stall sell Japanese Ramen which are affordable yet delicious.Why spend more than $10 to have a bowl of good ramen? Just try it here. Adapted to local hawker style, you just have to order, pay and collect your own food instead of them serve to you.





Condiments are all self service 


Chashu-men ($7) : Tonkotsu pork broth with extra Chashu meat. Slightly cost saving if you top up for extra chashu meat. The broth is really tasty and ramen is not overcooked. Add Ajitama for extra $1(really worth it)



Free one serving of refill, you can get


Miso Ramen ($6) - Miso flavoured ramen served with corn


Jiajiamen ($4.50) - Chinese inspired ramen, spicy braised pork serve with ramen and corns. suitable for those that prefer spicy food

Sorry Shark lovers. The shark's fin soup is thick and savoury. Quite decent serving.


(药膳醉虾 Drunken Prawn with Chinese Herbs)

Fresh prawns cooked with dates, angelic herbs etc.... I will suggest to eat the prawns only and save your stomach space for others


(油浸顺壳 Deep fried Soon Hock fish)

Nice crispy deep fried fish served with light soy sauce. I really love the fish meat, firm. Not flaky at all.

-------------------------------------

Verdict 3.5/5

The standard of the food is good. I will mark down on the service by the staff. Even the manager is somewhat arrogant to the customers. I will seriously advice Ban Heng group to review on their staff's service level and attitude towards the customers.
