Manpuku at Tampines 1 has a stall called Aoba Ramen (I think) that sells some really kick-ass dishes. I hadn’t noticed it before, probably because I always associate ramen with that cheap, instant stuff I’m used to seeing in grocery stores. After reading some blogs about Japan though, I stopped to give it serious consideration and decided to try it out.
My wife and I both fixated on the shoyu ramen that had pieces of pork set on top of it. It was a great choice! I didn’t have my camera on me so I snapped some photos with my iPhone.
We also got a side order of gyoza with our ramen. I think there was a discounted price that day so we decided to give them a try. They were also very good.
We finished the meal off by trying the green tea ice cream, which was listed as ‘macha’ ice cream. It has a unique taste and is pretty good. I think the taste would get old if I ate it too often. It can also play games with your stomach, so be careful of that.
Looking at the picture of the ramen, blurry as it is, makes me hungry. I think I’ll try to convince my wife that we should go back there soon.

we will go there if i pass my test=)
Great! Been thinking about that ramen a lot ever since we had it.
For the two bowls of ramen and the gyoza it was 19.72 USD. Two ice creams were 0.71 USD apiece. Kinda pricey, even in USD, but it's good. You could probably find something similar in the US for cheaper in a major city.
how much? ($US)
