Ramen Santouka (Hokkaido) @ The Central, Singapore (Foodrating: 4/5)


Aburi Iberian Pork Toroniku is roasted Iberian Pork Cheek. Iberian Pork or the black-footed pig is a new trend in Singapore. Its flavour and texture were like no other - delicate, hazel-nutty that with melt-in-your-mouth marble fats. These pork cheeks were very nicely roasted with a thin glace of sauce brushed atop the meat. I had a superb time savouring the ambrosial pork cheeks. At SGD 15, it is definitely worth it. (Food rating: 4.5/5)

Toroniku-Pao is made of melting pork cheek meat with Teriyaki Sauce. Just like the Aburi Iberian Pork Toroniku, the pork cheek dissipated in my mouth with barely a chew. The meat was tender and juicy. Wrapped between the steamed buns with teriyaki sauce and lettuce, it was like having the Teriyaki Chicken burger from Mos Burger. The only difference was the steamed bun that brought out the ambrosial flavour perfectly. I enjoyed this SGD4 burger immensely. I had this Toroniku-Pao two years ago and I am still amazed how it remained so delicious. (Food rating: 4.5/5)

The Hiyashi Chuka was a cold noodle dish served with fresh ingredients like cucumber strips, pork slices, crab stick strips, egg, etc. At SGD 15, it was a big plate of noodles, which could be shared. I loved the texture of the noodles - chewy and cold. The sauce had a tinge of sourness that brought out its light refreshing flavour. I remembered having this superb cold noodles two years ago. I was amazed again by its ambrosial taste and consistency. (Food rating: 4/5)

I also ordered a Tokusen Toroniku Ramen in Kara Miso broth. The noodles were served with roasted Pork Cheeks, which were valuable parts of the pig. Served daily in limited quantity, we were fortunate to be able to have it during dinner time. The noodles were consistent - chewy and delicious. As for the broth, it was very rich and spicy at the same time that gave us a sense of satisfaction. The pork cheeks were absolutely delicious. I enjoyed the bowl of noodles immensely - a scrumptious meal. (Food rating: 4/5)

All in all, we spent SGD71.80 for two persons. The meal was so delicious that I would definitely come back again. A definite must-try!
