Uni tsukemen from Menya Sakura

Menya Sakura, uni tsukemen

The first time we came across Menya Sakura (#01-07 Orchid Hotel, 1 Tras Link Road, tel : +65 9469 3366) was when they were located in Boat Quay. They were doing a foie gras ramen while we wanted to take advantage of that with a 1 for 1 deal from JPassport.

These fellas are currently doing a 3rd year anniversary menu with an uni tsukemen. Yep, you heard that right. I knew enough not to have hopes but I was still curious. 

There wasn't much uni going on except for the tiny pile on the noodles. Definitely far from the prettiest looking ones. We've also tasted better. Putting good quality sea urchin is apparently not a priority for these guys. The creamy tsukemen broth had a flavour akin to fermented bean (豆瓣酱) or miso. That was actually not bad.
