If you love eating Japanese food, one restaurant in Singapore you've got to visit is definitely Ichikokudo Ramen! Ichikokudo is the first-ever halal Hokkaido ramen eatery in Singapore, where you can enjoy the traditional and genuine taste of Hokkaido ramen. ? The secret to this mouthwatering ramen is in its rich and flavourful broth, as well as ingredients that are flown in fresh from Hokkaido!

If you want a sample of this exquisite taste, try Ichikokudo's original authentic soy sauce ramen which costs just $10.90! ? The dashi (soup) is made by simmering chicken bones for hours with 100% Hokkaido kelp, plus a blend of bonito and mackerel flavours ? Not to mention that their ramen is made from a special flour which has Hokkaido wheat to enhance its texture too! Not a fan of chicken? You can also opt for their Ichi-Smoked Duck Ramen ($13.90) or Ichi-Beef Ramen ($13.90) too.

P.S. Here are even more halal Japanese eateries in Singapore you've got to try!

Seafood lovers will love Ichikokudo's seafood specialities too. Hokkaido is well-known for its fresh seafood, so we recommend going straight for their Hokkai Ramen Gifts From The Sea ($19.90) which will be just the treat for you. With generous portions of scallops, shrimps and a crab leg, you'll be thoroughly satisfied with this refreshing ramen ?

Looking for a bit of spice with your ramen? Try Ichikokudo's Hokkai Jigoku Ramen ($13.90)! Named after Hokkaido's famous volcano, Jigoku-dani, this spicy ramen is a rich red soup made with a mix of spicy miso (fermented bean paste) and their signature broth. Top that up with their homemade chilli furikake for a burst of flavours!

#HHWT Tip: Want more flavour in your ramen but without the spice? Try Ichikokudo's tomato ramen instead. The sweet and tangy tomato coupled with rich chicken broth will definitely be a treat to your taste buds. ?

To make your dining experience even more authentic, you can enjoy 3 types of seating options at Ichikokudo. You can either sit at the ramen bar while watching their chefs prepare your ramen or savour your ramen the traditional way by sitting at their tatami corners. Wherever you choose to sit, we're pretty sure you'll enjoying slurping Ichikokudo's yummy ramen treats ☺️ We're pretty sure your stomach's been rumbling after reading this, so time to head down to Suntec City and get your ramen fix!

Ichikokudo also has regular limited-time specials. Right now their special promotion is the Sapporo Soup Curry & Rice ($19.90). ? With a base of a special curry roux mixed with their signature chicken broth, the soup curry is flavourful and light while still having a distinct and unique taste you'll fall in love with. The chicken leg, vegetables, and Hokkaido butter toppings are what really make it a dish you'll have to try!
