Best Ramen in Singapore Under $11

Best Ramen in Singapore: Value-For-Money Ramen Under $11

profileJustin Oh

When it comes to Japanese cuisine, there’s nothing quite like a bowl of ramen noodles doused in a thick tasty broth and filled to the brim with toppings, especially on a cold, rainy day.

Sadly, fellow ramen lovers know that top-quality ramen can easily set us back a hefty $20+ per bowl.

For those who crave ramen ever so often, that can burn a big hole in your pocket (unless you huat big big already).

While you can find cheap ramen for as little as $6 if you dig hard enough, this list takes into consideration how affordable the ramen is, whether it has sufficient toppings and the overall experience based on patron reviews.

Criteria:

  • Affordable (under $15 inclusive of GST + Service Charge)
  • Has at least two toppings with meat
  • Has generally good reviews

Since its inception in 2018, Kumamoto Ramen has expanded to a total of three outlets, a testament to its success in serving affordable ramen.

Despite its super cheap prices, Kumamoto Ramen cuts no corners when it comes to its toppings.

At just $6.80, the Kumamoto Tonkotsu Ramen comes with two thin-cut pork slices, an egg, spring onions, black fungus and bean sprouts, making it the cheapest ramen on this list.

While Buta Kin does have cheaper options at $5.50 for their Original Tonkotsu Ramen, I’d be hard-pressed not to recommend their Special Tonkotsu Ramen which gives you two extra thick-cut pork and seaweed, all for an extra two dollars.

The Special Tonkotsu Ramen at Buta Kin ($7.50) includes three thick slices of pork belly cha shu, an egg, spring onions, black fungus and seaweed; a hearty meal, especially for meat lovers.

For those who can’t get enough liao (Mandarin: Toppings) in their ramen, consider the Seven Wonders Ramen ($7.80) from Gonpachi Ramen.

As its name suggests, their signature ramen comes with seven toppings: one prawn, a half egg, bamboo shoots, minced meat, black fungus, corn and spicy green chilli sauce.

Alternatively, you can try their Smoked Duck Chashu Ramen and Miso Kakuni Ramen which are both priced at $7.80.
