Ramen Nagi, Suntec City

Ramen Nagi (#01-512/513 Suntec City Tower 2, 9 Temasek Boulevard, tel : +65 6266 1502)  from Japan opened up a couple of months back. Tonkotsu based and looks Hakata styled one at that. Like any ramen-ya with publicity, these guys attracted long lines during the opening.

I got their Black King. Their bowl of noodles with obsidian broth that's been blackened with squid ink, blackened garlic and black sesame. The broth was rich, slightly viscous even after mixing with what appeared to be a ball of black pepper sauced minced meat and quite delicious. The squid ink came through with the garlic. Even though I had opted for their extra hard option for the noodles - presumably harigane, it was still softer than I had expected. Pork belly was tender and had some nice melty fats.

I think I liked it enough to come back to try another bowl.
