Brothers Ramen – A Singapore Ramen

Leave a comment

Brothers RamenI love ramen, particularly how each Japanese province, and even noodle house, will have their own interpretation of the dish. My curiosity was piqued about how two Singaporean brothers – who first learnt how to cook ramen from Youtube videos – would present a localised version of one of Japan’s most popular dishes.

Brothers Ramen
The Cai brothers first started selling homemade cookies and ramen (what an odd combination) at a coffeeshop, before taking a year’s hiatus and re-opening as a ramen shop with an entirely new and improved recipe at International Plaza, Tanjong Pagar.

Brothers Ramen
It’s one of the first restaurants to have a self-ordering kiosk like the ones you see in Japan.

You can pay by cash or Nets.

The menu is kept simple with just 5 options, which is great cos’ I do not need to think too hard what to eat ;)

Go for the set menu, it’s more worth it.

The four-letter world caught my attention – FREE! :D Extra noodles, or kaedama, is usually offered at a charge at ramen shops, so I was pleasantly surprised to see that it is offered complimentary here. The noodles are also handmade daily at the shop, and I enjoy its medium-hard texture. It’s pretty awesome to have extra vegetables too! (Click click click… :p)

After you are done ordering, simply step right in and find a seat. Look out for the number signage to see when your order is ready for collection at the counter. If the shop is not too busy (likely at night), they will serve you at the table.

One of the brothers at work. Look at those beefy arms…I gotta start cooking ramen too. It must be the flipping action…lol

What goes into a bowl of Brothers ramen
I can sense a lot of thought and effort being put into cooking a good bowl of ramen, tweaking until the combination is just right.

Brothers Ramen
Their slogan says it all – “Ramen from Our Heart.”

The gyoza was slightly burnt, duh.

Brothers Ramen
I enjoyed the springy texture of the noodles and the broth made with pork, chicken, fish and vegetables (my friends found it a tad salty though). The chashu tasted more like ham than the usual meaty bite, so it’s a love-or-hate situation. Overall, it’s a decent effort from the young brothers to create a Singapore ramen. Gambatte! :)
