Kanshoku Ramen Bar – Dry Truffle Ramen and Truffle Ramen Broth!

IMG_8101 edit

Truffle ramen and truffle edamame? Yep, you did not hear it wrong. These are now served at Kanshoku Ramen Bar, the offshoot of Kanshoku Ramen which first opened at The Metropolis two years ago.

Traditional ramen in broth is available, with choices like the Black Garlic Ramen ($14.9), Flaming Hot Tonkotsu Ramen ($14.9) and the Signature Kanshoku Ramen ($13.9). But the truffle lovers in us were there for the trendy alternative the other day.

Served dry, the Black Truffle Ramen ($16.9) is a must-try. The thin ramen noodles are tossed in some truffle oil and topped with black truffle shavings and two slices of well-marinated charshu. Considerably, the amount of truffle served was generous but not to the extent where it can get too strong and overpowering. Not sure if I can ever order a bowl of traditional ramen for myself here when the truffle option is so tempting and tantalizing. I particularly liked how the marinade on the slices of charshu gave it more flavor. We also added ajitama for $2 to our ramen. There was initially some confusion over the availability of the truffle ramen, but all I know for now is that it’s served on a daily basis at the orchardgateway outlet.

The other truffle dish here is the Black Truffle Edamame ($4.9), which is coated with truffle oil and black truffle shavings. It might possibly be the best side dish amongst the others on the menu.

Sadly, the too ordinary Nagoya Chicken Wings ($6.9) fell short of our expectations.

Drinks-wise, Kanshoku has a selection of sake and craft beers. A pity we couldn’t try the Yuzu Lemon Juice ($5.4) and Matcha Latte ($5.4) which were not available that day.

Kanshoku means ‘to finish eating every last bit of your food’ in Japanese. And so we did.

Update: Kanshoku has recently launched its all-new Truffle Broth Ramen ($17.9, add $2 for an egg). Expect 3 layers of truffle goodness in it – truffle pate, shaved truffle and truffle oil infused with their tonkotsu broth. Compared to the dry version, this is a lighter option and is probably comprised of the suitable level of truffle for those who found the dry version a little too ‘gelat’. As usual, I managed to wipe clean yet another bowl of ramen here.
