Here’s Hanamaruken Ramen review after trying their chef recommendations. The Signature Happiness Ramen in Mega portion is a must try with their soft bone pork ribs in a rich tonkotsu soup base and fresh leeks. The noodle are cooked firmer than usual which I enjoyed. The gyoza are hand made by the in-house chef with a thin dough skin using in house marinated pork, cabbage and chive fillings. The fillings are juicy and umami with a nicely crisp skin. Dry Ramen is a new addition to their menu which packs a punch with the garlic base sauce and some ramen with a bite. Lastly, chill with their in-house special soothing artisanal sparkling tea with aromatic flora notes.
Hanamaruken Ramen in Osaka’s Namba neighbourhood, Japan is known for its Hakata-style noodles where the noodles are thinner and serve firmer than the usual ramen. There are about 40 outlets in Japan. They are also famous for their Signature Happiness Ramen which you can also get in Hanamaruken Raman in Singapore. This Signature Happiness Ramen is served with extra large slab of Torokotsu aka soft bone pork ribs in a tonkotsu big bone broth that is shoyu based. The founder Takaku Arakawa of the Arakawa Pork Company started this ramen business to share his quality pork cuts and ramen recipe with the mass in 1982. Quoting founder Takaku Arakawa “I put my whole soul and passion into the ramen, which I hope will make ramen lovers happy…”, which is also the motto which Hanamaruken Raman in Singapore swear by. Be sure to swing by, if you are looking to try the Signature Happiness Ramen with mega size soft bone pork ribs. A bowl of piping hot ramen is a sure way to bring a smile to your face.
Signature Happiness Ramen ($22.80) mega bowl size comes with a full slab of soft bone pork ribs (Torokotsu), ramen, shoyu-flavoured tamago, bamboo shoot, narutomaki, a nori lot with well wishes and fresh leeks. It also comes in regular size ($17.80) with a smaller portion of meat.
The soft bone pork ribs is a marbled slab of tender meat held together by translucent tendons and gelatinous parts. The rib bones in this slab is cooked till so soft that it disintegrates in the mouth. Certainly a lot of collagen in this slab of soft bone pork ribs and in the broth too. The fatty and melty ribs juices are glistering brightly in the light like a slab of gem.
Double Happiness Ramen ($19.80) is the ramen bowl where you can enjoy the best of both worlds with their signature soft bone pork ribs and tender chasyu marinated with shoyu. This ramen bowl also comes with shoyu-flavoured tamago, bamboo shoot, narutomaki, a nori lot with well wishes from Osaka and fresh leeks. Chasyu pork belly is interlaced with layers of fat and lean meats that are almost melting into one another. This is a sinful indulgence that you will savour slowly to make every bite counts. If you are chasyu lover, go for the chasyu ramen bowl ($18.80) where it is pure melty chasyu bliss.
We are converted by their handmade gyoza and tempura that are freshly made from scratch. These are so crunchy, crispy and served hot too. Get the perfect golden skin gyoza every time with controlled precision using this Gyoza machine with handmade crispy gyoza. These could be one of the best Gyoza in Bras Basah Road or even Singapore if you are craving for some.
Highly recommended trying Hanamaruken Ramen Handmade Gyoza ($8.80 for 6pcs, $15.80 for 12 pcs). We are honoured to watch the chef handmade each gyoza with a dough skin, puff it up pork fillings and sealed it with love. The result is a plump gyoza with juicy fillings with golden crispy edges. The pork, cabbages and chives are mixed seamlessly into one another rendering a sweet, savoury and aromatic burst of juice and meat with each bite. Definitely go for the 12 pcs set of gyoza as it is so addictive and will be snapped up real soon once served.
Artisanal sparkling tea ($6.80 each) is one of the must try non alcoholic beverage in Hanamaruken Ramen restaurant. It comes in 2 flavours – Osmanthus Oolong with a stronger bitter sweet tea aroma and Chinois Lychee which is more fruity and honeyed tasting. The bubbly brewed tea with strong flora notes is an instant pick me up. Cool and soothing tea with a foamy dome shaped top served cold in a wine glass. Do not forget their icy booze with 1-for-1 during happy hour. You can also get their Highball with either Calpis Highball ($11.80) or Whiskey Highball ($10.80) – a refreshing whiskey drink – ideal for a mid day break.
As Christmas and New Year are around the corner, these party platters are great ideas for the festive seasons without breaking the bank. Delight Platter ($22.80) consist of some crunchy karaage, gyoza and edamame. They also have Happiness Platter ($28.80) with Gyoza, karaage and tempura. These are all freshly made from scratch, freshly dipped in batter, and deep fried on the spot – fresh prawn tempura and karaage. Feel free to add on more sides such as stir fried edamame ($5.80) and even chasyu bun ($6.80 for 2 pcs) to this party platter for more joyful bites!
