Yoshimaru Ramen Bar @Holland Village

There are way too many good Ramen places in Singapore. Sadly, this isn't one of my favourites. 

Squeezy and small, you can hear the conversation next table quite clearly.
I bought a deal coupon, (or perhaps that's the reason why the food wasn't good?) and only had one choice- Creamy Black Sesame Pork Ramen ($12.80). We were first served with a bowl of sesame to crush by hand, something like Tonkichi's.
Crush your sesames!

Black Sesame Pork Ramen ($12.80)

Of Hakata ramen, it is a distinctive ultra thin ramen with a film texture, served in a rich in iron, magnesium and vitamins B and E, using roasted black sesame seeds to enhance their flavor and aroma. The char siew was well-marinated and is the star of the dish, pretty generous as well. However, the soup killed everything. DO NOT ORDER THE SPICY SOUP. It tastes extremely different from the non-spicy one. If you do, be prepared to drink lots of water, or love it because you're a spice lover!

It isn't fair to just mark this place down because of one dish, but sadly, if the purpose of having a deal coupon is perhaps just to earn some money with a badly thought-through of dish and not gaining awareness, then my experience would have been better if I had order the other full-priced menu dishes...

Food: 2/5
Service: 2.5/5
Ambiance: 2/5
Total Score: 3/5
[1- Never visit again, 2-Won't visit unless there's no other option, 3-Perhaps, 4 & 5- Yes!]

Good for? Couples, Groups, Family
