Rach: Ramen fever in Singapore? Must be. AOBA, Ajisen, Ippudo, Marutama, Ramenplay… and I’ve never heard of Sapporo Miharu until my friend told me that we were going to have her birthday dinner here. Well, now we know ^^ and it’s inconveniently hidden in Nanson Road. I shall not start my story on how I was conned to take a three minute taxi ride there which cost me S$10.90 lol!
When I finally found my way there, what greeted me was a rather small, homely and unpretentious looking restaurant. Luckily my friends got there early because we had a big group and the restaurant doesn’t accept reservations (perhaps due to its limited seating areas). On to the menu, Sapporo Miharu actually serves four different kinds of soup broth: Miso, Shio, Shoyu and Tonkotsu.
ED: Before watching Hello Ghost(Korean comedy movie which FYI was really good!:p) my partner and I were deciding between Ippudo and Wild honey for dinner. 2 popular eateries with lots of media publicity and large number of reviews. It wasn’t a long debate as both of us were craving something nice and warm to sit us through the movie. As we stepped into Ippudo we were greeted cheerfully by every single staff(at least 8 of them) and i thought it was only polite I nodded back at everyone of them.
Rach: AOBA was a totally unintentional dining stop. Where else could we go on a Friday night, 7pm, with no reservations, and with thousands of hungry humans lurking around with the same instincts? WE ALL WANTED DINNER. We had no idea where to eat. Moreover, it was my 5th day in a row in town. I already had Japanese food, ang moh food, dim sums, and more sushi… So we just walked around (after browsing the new Forever 21 outlet at Orchard Exchange) and decided to join the one with the shortest queue. Hmm…
