    I came across Hototogisu ramen at Chijmes at few weeks back while celebrating Valentine’s day.

    Over the weekend, I discovered there is a store at Greatworld City. The long queue and lack of patience prevented me from trying it!

    I decided to take the time to try it today at 6pm in order to avoid the anticipated crowd.

    I ordered 3 dishes; Oyster Taipan Ramen, Char Siew Salad and Gyoza.

    I do not know what to expect!

    Oyster soup base? What should I expect of it? The clear and freshness of oysters or the rich texture that oyster is known for?

    The soup look rich and flavourful and on the nose there is absolutely no hint of fishiness.

    On the mouth the soup is rich but lacks the texture of tonkutsu. Just like Tsutu Duck Ramen the chef uses diced fresh onion to balance the saltiness.

    However, I am unable to taste the freshness that I come to expect of oyster.

    In fact, it tastes more like tonkutsu than I have expected.

    The ramen came with 2 slices of very thinly cut Char Siew. The char siew is lean and the Chef intentionally cut it to very thin dimension to showcase it.

    The standard order did not come with Onsen egg and I kinda like it this way. The focus is on the soup and ramen complimented by the char siew.

    The chef clearly like tomatoes and threw in a slice of olive oil marinated tomato not only in the ramen but salad as well.

    If it’s to balance out the taste of the soup I think its unnecessary. The oinion did the job well.

    I like the ramen it is well balanced and very tasty. My only complaint perhaps is I am unable to taste the freshness of the sea in the Taipan version.

    The salad is very refreshing as salad should be. It is a mixture of sliced lettuce and very thinly sliced oinion. Abundantly covered in salad cream and cut pepper. The crispiness of the salad is well balanced by the soft and savory char siew. Brilliant combi!!

    I love the ramen and its soup! It was well executed!

    My complaint is perhaps on the service. The service staffs are very nice however the service time is a touch too long and they served me the ramen first followed by the salad. I would have love it the other way round.

    Final words; definitely worth my while to take the time off to try it.

    Place is clean and quiet. The service staff pretty much left us alone after serving what we ordered. Perfectly fine w me. I notice many of the side chilli flakes condiment are empty. Since this is a one michelin star place, I decided to try the house specialty(something I wouldn’t usually order)- Oyster Ramen. While it doesn’t look like much, I’m pleasantly surprised at how yummy is it. Not greasy as well.

    Peculiar oyster oil ramen – if you really like oysters, then it’ll be ok. But lacks real depth and flavor. Noodles are fantastically cooked and bring up to 4*s

    Didn’t try the Oyster based ramen even though it’s unique to this store. Love the Tonkotsu Original Ramen, especially the noodles. The ramen comes with only 2 slices of pork, would need to order extra to have a more filing portion. Weekend dinner crowd is about a 20 mins queue.

    We stepped right in as soon as we saw the Michelin 1 star banner, expecting a more pricey menu due to the award. Surprisingly the price on the menu wasn’t too high end despise the michelin standard. We ordered the oyster ramen, oyster chawamushi, pork called premium cha shu ju and gyoza. The oyster ramen soup was a shout out which tasted real good, same with the oyster chawamushi which is brand new to us. The pork rice set was below expectation. Service was quick and we could order ourselves from the ipad on the table. Food was served in a jiffy as well.

    Unique flavour from all the normal pork soup base. It added the oyster paste to the soup. I love the intensity of the oyster paste. The soup a bit oily. The noodle texture is great. However the soup is too little.

    Despite their fame for the pork and clam fusion broth, I chose the pork based Tonkotsu Original Ramen and asked for “no leek”. The Tonkotsu Original Ramen tastes great – much better than many tonkotsu ramen restaurants in Singapore. The best part is this: it has no MSG. The moment I left the restaurant, I already miss the refined, deep and comforting tonkotsu broth. I’ll be back again.

    It’s like creamy lemon tart ramen, I loved the oyster paitan ramen. It was a unique taste journey starting with lemon then chicken then oyster.

    My complaint is way too little toppings. Only two small thin chasiu.

    I’d ask for no onions next time. It was too strong.

    After hearing from few friends decided to visit this place.

    Heard this ramen shop was famous for its oyster broth and have won Michelin star for this place consequently for last 3 years.

    Personally a fan of miso, I have their signature ramen with miso.

    We also ordered our go to tonkatsu.

    Their signature was rich, creamy and had the oyster taste at the end. It was a tad bit salty for me. Wish it was a little less salty, then it would have been perfect.

    Tonkatsu and gyoza were really nice as well.

    Ramen noodles were the star for me, they had the perfect texture and were al dente.

    Vibe was nice, felt like I was in one of the Japanese ramen shops in Tokyo.

    My husband and I are ardent ramen lovers and have enjoyed plenty of ramen outlets both good and not-so-good. We loved the texture of the noodle here. The pork broth being undisputedly authentic, well-balanced and not oily. The cha-shu soft and uncharred. Luckily escaped being in the queue. The staff was great and welcoming. Will come back to devour a different bowl when we visit the Great World City next .

    Ordered the oyster shio ramen. The oyster broth here is interesting and light. The ramen noodles seem to be a cross between soba and ramen. The entire bowl is easy to finish and not cloying. Toppings are interesting too – you wouldn’t think capsicum and raw onion works in ramen but it does in this broth. The flavours in the oyster broth come thru better in the oyster shio ramen than the slightly heavier oyster paitan ramen.

    Would recommend you to try the oyster broth on your first visit and then the tonkotsu on a subsequent visit. The tonkotsu ramen was also quite good despite it not being their specialty.

    Their ajitama comes in a separate small bowl when you order it as an add on to your ramen – would prefer for it to be served sliced in half and in the ramen.

    Price is reasonable.

    Tonkotsu (regular).

    Soup is rich and very flavourful.
    Ingredients are simple, but really nicely done.
    Noodles are firm and springy, and pick up just the right amount of soup to be flavourful.

    Portion is medium. (Big eaters beware!)
    Good for one person with sides and a drink.

    Overrated, pricey and small portion.
    For Original Tonkotsu Ramen: broth too salty and chasu very strong pork smell.

    Personally did not like the taste of Oyster Cream in the Shoyu Hamaguri Soup Ramen and Chawamushi. Slow refill for tea.

    A very interesting ramen! I ordered the oyster shio ramen and have never tasted such a flavour before. The oyster paste helped add a new dimension to the ramen broth. We got the two oyster ramens, the shio and paitan which is basically a salt base or a miso base. The char siew was also tender and good. The only gripe I have is with the raw onions in the soup. I felt that they were a little too overpowering.

    Tried their specialty, the Oyster Ramen and was impressed. Tastes good and even better when I added onsen egg and extra sous vide chasu. Their ramen is home made and it’s definitely better than the commercial ones we’re used to. Only complain is that the portion is not enough for me. Wife had the chicken Karaage set but it’s more like a whole cutlet if you see the pic. No issues on why they call it this way but most importantly is that it tastes great! Even better than some Taiwanese chicken cutlet stalls! Will come back again.

    If you are thinking that this is going be a fishy bowl of ramen because of the oyster soup base, you are wrong! I have always been a big fan of tonkotsu ramen and was a little skeptical about this clear version but it turned out to be a good alternative for me. The sousvide charsiu was cooked to perfection with just the right bite. Same goes for the doneness of the noodle. The only thing that deters me from giving it 5 star is the price! 18 bucks for that small bowl of ramen can be quite off putting.

    It’s OK for me. Didn’t blow me away because I expected more from their 1 Michelin star in Japan. The broth and noodles were the 2 parts that worked for me but the toppings were just mediocre. I ordered their signature oyster shio. The broth was good, but the topping oil was lacking. Maybe that’s just me. Service was fast and swift as with most ramen shops in Singapore. Overall, I think this shop serves better ‘Michelin star’ rated ramen than Tsuta. Just do expect the real finesse and refinement that you’ll find in Japan. That’s my 0.02. 3 stars from me.

    Go for their signature oyster ramens and have an umami filled meal

    Noodles : tenderness are cooked just right, though portions can be a little more

    Soup : bursting with umami and try it individually with different condiments for a different taste with each mouthful of noodles

    Meat : Nice thin slices (Maybe a little too thin), juicy and no toughness

    Rather interesting bowl, the oyster flavor here is unique to this branch while the other branch. The oyster flavor isn’t too strong, the Oyster Pitan is definitely better than the regular one. Dessert is amazing!! Pretty expensive for ramen, with toppings, dessert and tea the bill came to 65 for 2.

The temperature of the broth is good too, even until you almost finish the noodle, the broth is still warm. It is missing 1 more star from my rating js because the more i eat, i find the saltier it gets. Else it will be perfect.

    The Michelin Star (!) definitely caught my eye. When the queue dwindled to half a dozen strong, I decided to give it a shot.

    The signature dish is their Oyster soup based ramen. Intriguing indeed. Ordered a clear soup at waitress’s recommendation. Food was served in less than 10 minutes, just after I warmed my seat and finished my limited internet search. Quite impressive for a Michelin Star restaurant.

    Upon arrival, the noodle and soup base looked harmless. Sampled the soup first. It was silently robust, a blend of the sea and earthly broth. Didn’t know what to make of it, as I have not get used to oyster based ramen soup yet. Next, stirring in the garlic butter sprinkled with chopped (chives?) leaves. Interesting. Can’t remember much, because I was anticipating the oyster paste Attack (you can see it as a greenish paste in photo).

    After stirring up a storm in the ramen bowl, the broth took a sudden twist. The taste of oyster sprang to life immediately. The taste is quite overwhelming. A confusing and yet pleasant surprise to one who has not bothered to try seafood ramen before.

    There was something funny in the taste too. The noodle was served with bits rockets (salad vege). Being bitter and crisp, it confused my poor taste buds to no end.

    By now I am munching the noodles. One of the best ramen noodles I had. I admit I am partial. I only like egg noodles (not the other yellow type ), and this is one fine example indeed. Al dente .

    Then it hit me. The after taste! That’s what the rockets are for. Typically strong ramen broth will leave a salty and oily after taste. The rockets’ slight bitterness kept this in check. Clever Chef.

    Don’t know what to conclude about this ramen. My palate is still confused. LOL… but hey, at $15.90++, about the same price as the “fast food ramen – Ajisen”, I will go back and try, again and again to confuse my palate to no end.

    Had the black pepper tonkotsu ramen—broth was not too thick, flavourful, and I liked the extra flavour that the pepper added. Overall a nice balance of flavour profiles. Noodles had a firm texture, pork belly was decent. Thought the toasted garlic was interesting, but it wasn’t very savoury, and the texture was an awkward in-between of crunchy and chewy.

    My gripe is that the portion is reallyyyy small (for $13.90++): just a tiny piece of pork belly, not much noodles either.

    TLDR: decent for a ramen hit but not really worth the price

    I thought long before reaching this conclusion. I love ramen, and it got me excited after seeing the restaurant advertised at Michelin 1 Star. The damage was $25 per person.

    Taste: it was… alright! Noodles were perfect, soup was okay. Sous vide char siu was tougher than expected. Side dishes were nothing more than average 料 to fill you up.

    Service: table wasn’t properly cleaned, the staff threw a wet order chit on the table (picture below), my table didn’t have condiments (like shichimi powder) when others did.

    Overall I would probably prefer Ajisen over this. However I’m curious to visit the original store in Japan! Perhaps when leisure travel becomes available next.

    Located in the new wing of Great World City, this Ramen shop is rather small and cramped. It’s claim to fame would be the Michelin star that it’s parent shop in Tokuo earned. This shop in Great World Cory specializes in Oyster Ramen. I was rather disappointed that I could find any oyster in my bowl and realized later the oyster comes as a paste, kind of like miso paste. And it does pack a punch when you stir it into the broth which is tasty although more salty than I would have preferred. Nowadays, most ramen shops have toned down on the saltiness of the broth to cater to local taste. The noodles is of the thin type and was springy and chewy. All in all, worth a try. And you can claim you have visited a Michelin star ramen shop.

    When I first ate this dish about 3 years ago, I thought this oyster oil ramen was out of the world! After 3 years, I came back again to eat this dish.

    However, I can’t help but to wonder why persons who dislike oysters would rate this place 1 star?? The Shio ramen is cooked with salt and oyster soup was slow cooked for hours. And yet complain that it was salty and smell of mercury?? The person won’t be alive if really tasted mercury…… If can’t take oyster why purposely come to eat oyster based ramen? Go Ajisan Ramen please!

    These distracting muppets…..

    Anyway we ordered 2 ramen which were the clear soup and creamy soup base with set meals option added in.

    As a oyster lover, I don’t find the oyster concentrate paste overpowering as I love the rich flavor. My partner had ordered the creamy version and it’s also heaven when tasting the soup.

    The ramen was cooked just nice to blend with the soup. Of course the slice of meat and vegetable was there to complement the oyster ramen. Customers who may not like oyster taste may order other non oyster ramen dishes. I didn’t try those as my objective is clear, to try their famous oyster featured dish.

    Oyster taste ramen is unique. But portion is small and quality of ingredients is poor. It seems the cooks can’t be bothered. As an example: I ordered an extra egg cut into 2 halves. One half was smashed. The egg they replaced for me was worse. The waiter laughed at this. For this type of fast food quality, they should charge fast food prices and not the premium prices they are charging. There are better options in Great World City so I do not recommend this ramen.

    Food: The recommended ramen is pretty different from the usual Japanese ramen. It is creamy and you cant get the usual Japanese ramen broth. It is yummy if you are adventurous. If not, you wont like it.

    Ambience: There was quite a queue during the weekend but the turnover is pretty fast.

    Staffs: they are pretty fast and good.

    Excellent ramen! Tried their signature plain oyster broth and miso oyster broth ramen. Texture of noodles was firm and made from whole grain. The soup broth was very tasty.. imagine clam or Asari soup base that’s twice as tasty! I prefer the plain oyster broth though it was saltier, while the miso oyster broth had a slice of lemon that added to its uniqueness . Both versions had oyster paste which added depth. Store claims not to have used msg for the broth The fried tofu was good too especially w the fried bonito flakes!

    The oyster ramen is the key item on their menu, hence we ordered 1 oyster Shio ramen and 1 oyster paitan ramen. We also topped up each bowl with a set meal i.e. maki + hojicha & guisa + hojicha.

    The oyster Shio ramen: you can taste the oyster in the broth. Once u have mixed the paste into the broth, the taste changed a little maybe becoz of the piece of grilled capsicum & raw onions or spring onions. Noodles were really chewy. They were not like the usual noodles you get from the normal ramen. This bowl of ramen was rather unique.

    Oyster Paitan ramen: the broth was rather rich. It comprised of miso and oyster & lemon taste. We were surprised to find a piece of grilled lemon in the broth. The broth was more full bodied and a tinge zesty. Noodles were also chewy.

    If you want to have a somewhat unique bowl of good ramen, hototogisu is a good place to come for it.

    The store offers many different types of Ramen but I personally always choose the Original. This is to enjoy the original taste of their Ramen. The Ramen is sizes reasonably and has rich tastes between each bite or drink. They also have the Cuttlefish which is an amazing side to be added on for the Ramen. It has Mayonnaise to be dipped on and is a large serving. If you want to, It will also remain equally delightful when placed in the Ramen. In conclusion, I rate the restaurant as 5 stars for their food.

    Price point is reasonable for the ramen and side dishes. I wouldn’t say it’s exceptionally good for its one Michelin Star status though. Wouldn’t return again if I have a ramen craving. Word of caution – spicy ramen bowl is really spicy and packs a punch! Oyster ramen is kind of a miss. Very mild oyster taste but that’s really about it. Don’t bother with the gyoza. Agedashi tofu is good. Arrived piping hot – crispy on the outside, soft on the inside.

    Today’s food philosophy – Simplicity is good for the soul. And we weren’t wrong to have gone for the extremely “light” Tonkotsu Original Ramen with an accompanying portion of Gyoza. The full-bodied clear soup really hit the spot, like a one Michelin-starred establishment would. We can’t help but wonder how Chef Atsushi Yamamoto maintains the standard at so many outlets though and will be curious to find out.

    Easy to eat for Singaporeans’ taste buds as its not too salty. I had the Oyster Paitan Ramen. For that price, I will return cos not found elsewhere. Most places are overrun with Tonkotsu, which is boringly everywhere. Mai hiam buay pai la. 2 or 3 shrinky oysters. I hope is cos the flavour went into the soup. The meat not exactly melt in your mouth. Slight bit of the tough side.

    Novelty lies in the initial guided tasting of ramen. It is recommended to taste “sections” of ramen to get a variety of taste(butter oil oyster oil etc) before stirring the broth. The mainsell is the oyster paste, when merged with chawanmushi, greatly enhanced the taste. However, while the taste is novel(very salty) from the usual tonkotsu type, I am not convinced this is dish that resulted in Michelin one star rating for the chef… This is a blatant marketing gimmick. The chef even had mini diary in the menu that mentioned his greatest success is in hamaguri clam broth…. Which is absent from the menu…

    Like most ramen served in Japan, this is a tad salty for my preference. However, the soup base is robust with full-bodied oily flavours from the bone stock. The award-winning oyster soup version has a deeper, complex, multi-layered impact on your taste buds, almost able to sense the earthy origins of the oysters’ habitat where naturally occurring minerals/metallic flavours are absorbed from.
    The black pepper loaded version of ramen is also very satisfying for those with a spicy preference.
    Finally, the roast pork char siew with rice is excellent. The pork slices are fragrantly roasted and the meat is tender. Both choices on the menu are actually the same, just that the presentation is different.

    Ramen with a one-of-a-kind oyster base. Service was swift, place is very clean and brightly lit. The first branch in Tokyo Shibuya has a Michelin Star. Definitely sign up for the Japan Food Holdings reward at the back – 10% rebate on all their holding food cos. Citibank card holders remember to ask for a $5 voucher (not sure how long this will last) if you spend >$50.

    The serving is smallish but extraordinarily good. The broth is complex yet delicate at the same time. Exquisite. Amongst the best I’ve tried. Both here in Singapore and in Tokyo.

    Only two rather skinny slices of charsu but that serves only to keep the focus on the broth. Great balance.

    I had the paitan oyster ramen. Highly recommended. The goyza is great too.

    Finally tried this Michelin star Ramen place in Great World City. The buzz I guess has sort of dies down as there was no one in the restaurant. We ordered the Shop Oyster and the Spicy Ramen. both were okay. Nothing exceptional but a safe , kind of reliable kind. Wouldn’t mind having it again. The No MSG sign is everywhere which is kind of a good thing as I didn’t feel the lethargy I usually feel after gulping some of the good ramens out there. They have a promo of topping up <5 and u get a fried side dish and drink. That's a nice deal.

    I am surprised how disappointing this was. Due to all the marketing, my expectations were extremely high. Having lived in Japan, I always have a massive craving and fortunately Singapore has its stable of quality ramen outlets.
    I would not rank this in that category. The broth lacked depth, the noodles were overcooked. The staff also did not ask how we liked the noodles. The gyoza was really bad. I don’t think it had much meat mostly cabbage. The food also comes out really quickly, as fast as fast food.

    Located in The Great World City Mall.
    Had to place order through the iPad. And thankfully, menu was provided, so that the customers could have a better idea of the variety of food available.
    Famous for its noodle. And surprisingly, the ramen was extremely good. The texture of the noodle was smooth and chewy. The gravy was tasty and wasn’t salty like what other Japanese restaurant. Only thing was the portion was definitely not enough for a big eater.
    There were also rice set available. For the pork in the rice set, the pork was too salty. The saltiness overshadowed the taste of the meat. If the pork was too salty that one star had to be deducted.
    The gyoza was delicious too, eating together with the sauce provided, was perfect. Extremely tasty.
    The price was reasonable if ordered together as a set, since you could order a side and a choice of drink.
    Service was prompt.
    For payment, you would need to go to the counter to pay.
    Overall experience was great.

    Would recommend anyone to go and try the noodle!

    When I first ate this dish about 3 years ago, I thought this oyster oil ramen was out of the world! After 3 years, I came back again to eat this dish.

    However, I can’t help but to wonder why persons who dislike oysters would rate this place 1 star?? The Shio ramen is cooked with salt and oyster soup was slow cooked for hours. And yet complain that it was salty and smell of mercury?? The person won’t be alive if really tasted mercury…… If can’t take oyster why purposely come to eat oyster based ramen? Go Ajisan Ramen please!

    These distracting muppets…..

    Anyway we ordered 2 ramen which were the clear soup and creamy soup base with set meals option added in.

    As a oyster lover, I don’t find the oyster concentrate paste overpowering as I love the rich flavor. My partner had ordered the creamy version and it’s also heaven when tasting the soup.

    The ramen was cooked just nice to blend with the soup. Of course the slice of meat and vegetable was there to complement the oyster ramen. Customers who may not like oyster taste may order other non oyster ramen dishes. I didn’t try those as my objective is clear, to try their famous oyster featured dish.

    Had the tonkotsu ramen. Initially the broth tasted disappointingly light but the further I ate, the more I appreciated the mild subtle ness of it. If you want a fattier broth, not the place.

    3 stars because everything else from noodle to toppings was average. Add the 10% gratuity and it becomes an expensively unspectacular bowl.

    Been sceptical about Michelin star ramen since I have had my fair share of bad ones. This one was about ok. I ordered the signature Oyster Shio Ramen which came with rocket leaves, chopped red onions, roasted paprika and parsley flakes. I couldn’t taste the soup as it was overpowered by the red onions and rocket leaves. The oyster paste was very strong and concentrated so be careful when tasting it. This bowl was saved by the noodles which was a kind of buckwheat mix noodle which gives it a very signature flavour. My friend had the paitan version which was slightly stronger in flavour to battle the red onions and rocket leaves. The thick belly cha shu was surprisingly good.

    All in all, 3 stars for a decent restaurant to try something other than the usual tonkotsu based ramen. Will try the other outlets for other versions of soup base.

    OK this is serious umami good. Its the few Michelin star branch that taste like one. Compared to its brethren in chimes, this took the art one notch better with its oyster base soup. Particularly impress with its miso interpretation. The broth is not overpowering miso but a faint hint of it. The buttery and lemon favor gives the noodles a refreshing taste to it. The noodles texture is just right amount of bounce and softness every bite. The soup is brought rich with the oyster’s iron richness. A perfect combination of everything. The original shio ramen is also as good. It’s good to try both out.

    After eating Hototogisu Ramen last week at Chijmes, decided to give this newly opened outlet at Great World City shopping mall. The noodles are made in delicious manner (same as Chijmes) and the special thing about this outlet is that it only offers the Oyster Broth. I preferred the Oyster Parian Ramen as I like the creamer version. Do be prepared to queue during peak hours to enjoy their ramen. Cash and Credit Card payment is accepted.
