Obviously I came for the chicken drumstick, so there was absolutely no hesitation when I placed my order in the very straightforward order sheet. "How much chicken oil do you want in your ramen, do you want all of the toppings, and the strength of your noodles?" I couldn't wait for my food to arrive.

To keep the intense ramen craving at bay I snacked on the seasoned tau ghey provided by the side. If that was any indication of the food I was so gingerly waiting for, I was made even more excited.

Everything tasted fine.. which is a great dip from my expectations. I guess I forgot to account for potential sogginess of the chicken drumstick. Nonetheless it was tender and a great side to accompany the ramen.

I also very curiously tried out the green cola. Meh. I hate the feeling of succumbing to novelty and then paying the price of disappointment. Guess this is just a piece of friendly advice to people reading this! Green cola is nothing like what I fantasised - a combination of that awesome green colored F&N drink and cola.

Keisuke Tori King offers ramen in a chicken-based broth.

The reason why I didn't include the word "only" in that sentence is because the chicken-based broth is really the only thing they need to serve! It's simply amazing! Those who are used to the aroma of typical pork-based ramen broths are likely to be pleasantly surprised by Keisuke Tori King's offerings. Customers are allowed to choose the 'strength' of the broth, the softness of their noodles and inclusion of various other toppings. I've been there twice and tried both the 'normal' and 'strong' variations of their 'Black Spicy' ramen. The normal version of the broth was plenty flavourful, but the strong one was bordering on overpowering. However, with such amazing flavours, 'overpowering' might have been a good thing!

The dish itself came with a nice, large chicken thigh, lots of noodles, a huge piece of seaweed and assorted toppings which I decided to order. The chicken was moist throughout, incredibly tender and just flat-out amazing. I ordered the 'normal softness' variation of the noodles and sure enough, they were chewy and done just right. The broth, as mentioned earlier, was packed with incredible flavours, although it was a bit on the oily side. I also ordered their 'Green Tea Cola' which was not only refreshingly tasty, but also complemented the ramen well. If anyone knows where I can find more of that stuff, do let me know!

The prices are also really affordable and are just above that of Ajisen Ramen. If you ask me, it's well worth the extra few dollars. The service was decent, like what you'd expect from most restaurants here. The ambiance was really cool and authentic too!

Overall, Keisuke Tori King offers a Japanese ramen experience that is incredibly unique at completely reasonable prices! Good job!

This is one ramen that you either love or hate. I have heard some of my friends saying that it does not taste as wholesome as the pork broth based ramen. I have also heard raves about it. So of course, I had to go down and taste it myself!

Ramen Keisuke Tori King specializes in chicken ramen, something you don't usually get to see in most ramen shops due to pork broth being the norm. I had to wait for about 10-15 minutes before I got a seat. Before I got in, I was already handed a sheet to indicate what I want. It is simple. Just tick the boxes of your choice. Choose your ramen (they have 3 types. The normal, black (black pepper) and green (wasabi), the oil level and doneness of the ramen. My friend and I opted for the normal ramen with less chicken oil and normal noodle doneness. It was recommended on the sheet that you tick Normal for everything for an authentic Japanese experience but don't we girls always opt for less oil? Haha!

The interior had this rustic Japanese feel. Very nice! It was different from the usual posh, bamboo, prim and proper looking Japanese dining places. I liked it! Our orders were served relatively quickly. The first thing that caught my eye was the huge chicken thigh in my ramen bowl. Wow I have never been served such a huge chicken thigh in my ramen before. That got me excited. I began to slurp slurp my noodles. Really yummy. The broth, the noodles and the chicken was perfect. The chicken skin was crispy! The only drawback was that the oil was still too much for me and I already ticked less oil. Can they come out with a "lesser than less oil" option??? This ramen place also serve free flow hard boiled eggs and seasoned beansprouts! The seasoned beansprouts are very tasty to have. Overall, I really like this place for a change from the usual pork broth base. Would definitely come here again!
