Beef bone broth ramen from Tampopo

This was a a beef based bone broth ramen akin to the regular tonkotsu types that Tampopo (391 Orchard Road, B2-33 Takashimaya Shopping Centre, tel : +65 6235 2318) is currently having on current promotions along with a bunch of salmon based items.

Curiously, the original broth had the inclusion of sesame oil which kinda detracted the mild beefy flavors that were present while the wasabi version didn't have the faintest hint of wasabi. It was instead cleaner tasting because of the lack of sesame oil. I'm not too sure what to make out of this new ramen, but I suppose I wouldn't mind having them if there were up on the regular item menu. They should probably do away with the sweet and spicy marinate for the slice of overcooked yakiniku which really doesn't do much to enhance the soup nor the meat itself.
