Rachel and I had ramen at the Beppu ramen restaurant at Tiong Bahru Plaza a few weeks ago. I have tried the ramen at their original outlet at China Square and enjoyed it very much. Hence we decided to give their sister outlet a try.
What I like about Bepu is that you can choose the degree of hotness for your ramen soup, based on the number of chili indicator.
Rachel ordered a sweet corn butter ramen, with zero chili while I ordered a spicy pork ramen with four chili. The last time I ate at Bepu was more than two years ago. I must have forgotten my threshold for the spiciness of their soup – four chili was a tad too hot for me. Otherwise, the ramen were good although the soup flavouring could have been thicker (not referring to the spiciness).
I must have looked rather pathetic, gulping down glasses of water, tearing while I “enjoyed” my ramen.
We also ordered a tofu side. Plain water is served at no extra cost and they also provide Japanese peas as starters. The total bill comes to S$22 for two of us. Quite cheap, compared to most other ramen restaurants.
