Ultimate Ramen Champion at Changi Airport, Terminal 3
After the success of Ultimate Ramen Champion at Iluma, Ramen Champion has opened in Changi Airport, Terminal 3!
What’s Ramen Champion?
Ramen Champion competitions are held annually in all major cities in Japan. Komars Group, the organizer of Ultimate Ramen Champion Singapore has currently brought in 4 of the best Ramen restaurants from four major cities to Changi Airport Terminal 3 to compete for the title of Ultimate Ramen Champion.
Why Terminal 3?
Ramen Champion brings different ramen flavours from different regions of Japan to Singapore, and encourage exchange of culture and taste. By having it in Terminal 3, which is a up and coming shopping mall, it hopes to showcase the different ramen champions to local and foreign guests.
Ramen Champion @ Terminal 3 is fashioned like a ramen museum. There were exhibits of different types of ramen and broth, as well as information of its history and tradition.
Which 4 Ramen restaurants?
1. Ikkousha (Hakata)
One of the most celebrated ramen restaurants of Fukuoka in Hakata.
Very rich creamy pork broth, with fungus and spring onion added. Sweet tender slices of pork belly, runny egg and thin noodles complete the dish.
2. Gantetsu (Sapporo)
Gantetsu is the winner of ramen champion in Sapporo for 3 consecutive years. Gantetsu means stubbornness in Japanese, the chef is stubborn when using the freshest ingredients. The stall is also available in Ramen Champion @ Iluma.
The special Miso Ramen emphasizes on the natural sweetness of the ingredients. It has a mild ginger taste in the dish, which is suitable to cold weather like Hokkaido. I find the char shu abit tough for my liking.
3. Riki (Tokyo)
This is a new born brand created in Singapore by Chef Suzuki.
If you have tried Ramen Champion @ Iluma, and is a fan of Bario (just like me), then you would love this. The Buta Spicy Ramen has a rich white broth with a strong garlic shoyu. The broth is boiled with pork bones, pork meat and vegetables. Unlike Bario which has thick fat noodles, the ramen here uses curly thin noodles made with Japanese plain flour and tapioca starch. I love this!
4. Gensuke (Fukuoka)
Another famous ramen shop in Japan.
Gensuke Ajitama Ramen is famous for ladies as it is very refreshing and well packed with COLLAGEN! The soup tastes like the typical chicken soup that my mother would cook. It is cooked with thin and flat cut noodles, garnished with chicken char shu.
How is it judged?
There are 4 quarter finals and the ultimate ramen champion will be announced at the end of the competition. Judging criteria include sales takings and vote counts via SMS, Facebook and onsite voting. The crowned champion will be invited to set up a restaurant in Singapore by 3rd quarter of 2012. You can visit the facebook page here.
So come, eat and vote for your ULTIMATE RAMEN CHAMPION!
