Looking for an honest assessment of Ichikokudo Hokkaido Ramen? You’ve come to the right place. Join us as we delve into the key elements that make or break a satisfying ramen experience. From the texture of the noodles to the flavor of the soup, the quality of the meat, and the impact of the toppings, we leave no stone unturned in this comprehensive evaluation.


Noodle – 5/35

When it comes to the noodles in Ichikokudo’s Shoyu Ramen, we noticed a striking similarity to their Miso ramen counterpart. Regrettably, these noodles, while visually appealing, lack the desired texture and carry an overpowering “yellow noodle” taste.

Soup – 15/35

As one of Singapore’s few Halal ramen chains, Ichikokudo opts for a chicken and/or seafood-based broth. Their signature Shoyu base adds a refreshing twist to the traditional Hokkaido ramen. While the soup is light and mildly savory, we believe it has the potential for further enhancement to achieve greater depth and complexity.

Meat – 15/20

In a pleasant surprise, the Chicken Chashu featured in Ichikokudo Ramen <Original> impressed us with its tenderness and delightful aroma. The chicken variation provided a welcome departure from its pork counterparts, showcasing a different yet satisfying flavor.

Toppings – 5/10

Among the toppings offered, the eggs met our expectations with their satisfactory quality. However, the minced seaweed, unlike the usual whole pieces, failed to contribute much flavor to the overall dish. Additionally, the menma (bamboo shoots) proved slightly fibrous and carried a strong and pungent odor.


The noodles used in Sapporo Butter Miso Ramen follow the traditional Sapporo/Miso style, characterized by their thickness. However, despite their visually pleasing appearance, these noodles fail to deliver the desired bite and carry an overpowering “Chinese yellow noodle” taste.

Soup – 15/35
While the broth stock of Sapporo Butter Miso Ramen is satisfactory in taste, the miso flavor is disappointingly muted. Once the butter is stirred into the broth, it completely overpowers the subtle miso essence.

Meat – 15/20
Surprisingly, the Chicken Chashu featured in Sapporo Butter Miso Ramen impressed us with its tenderness and delightful aroma. Unlike its pork counterparts, this chicken variation adds a distinct and enjoyable twist.

Toppings – 5/10
Among the toppings provided, the eggs met our expectations with their decent quality. However, the other ingredients failed to make a significant difference in enhancing the overall taste. Notably, the preparation of the menma (bamboo shoots) seemed subpar.


One man’s meat is another man’s poison.
