Singapore, 3 January 2014 – EPIC EATS LLP is pleased to announce the opening of BUTA RAMEN, a contemporary Japanese Ramen restaurant in Far East Square. Buta Ramen specialises in Hakata-style Tonkotsu ramen.
Originally from Kyushu, Hakata ramen is characterised by a rich, creamy-white pork broth that can only be achieved by stewing pork bones for several hours. Each delicious bowl contains generous servings of freshly made noodles, ajitsuke tamago (marinated soft-boiled egg), nori (Japanese seaweed), menma (fermented bamboo shoots) and traditional Chashu (sliced pork belly) or Buta Ramen’s signature flame-grilled Yakitori Pork Ribs.
The latter is a key element of Buta Ramen’s house special – Boss Rib Ramen. A dish that has already drawn rave reviews from soft launch customers, these meaty pork ribs are slow-cooked for 24 hours to ensure a fall-off-the-bone tenderness. They are then glazed with a secret Yakitori sauce and then flame-grilled to sizzling perfection. No tenderiser is used in the process, just good old-fashioned slow cooking.
This ethos is reflected in Buta Ramen’s broth, where fresh pork bones and vegetables are cooked over eight hours to attain the traditionally creamy, white consistency that is the hallmark of a good Tonkotsu broth.
Buta Ramen’s menu offers value for money, with prices ranging from S$9.90 to S$14.90. Diners also enjoy free servings of marinated bean sprouts and hard boiled eggs. Buta Ramen does not charge for service or GST.
Buta Ramen is the brainchild of EPIC EATS LLP partners – Sandy Yeo, Chris Tan and John Ng. The three friends wanted to create a restaurant that would unite their lifelong passion for good food and good value. Says Chris: “No one else does ramen and ribs like we do. We use only natural ingredients and do everything the traditional way. No tenderiser or additives. No shortcuts. We invite you to come and taste the difference for yourself.”

137 Amoy Street, #01-04, Far East Square, just off China Street.
