singapore: aoba hokkaido ramen

In Singapore I spent a long afternoon lost in the Ion luxury shopping mall (or rather "multi-sensory experiential shopping and lifestyle mall") on Orchard Road. Confused and hungry in the 660,000 sq meter maze of Chanel, Prada, Shiseido, I somehow made my way to the foodcourt and was happily rewarded. There were vendors selling all kinds of dumplings, noodles, pastries, sweets, etc...
With a craving for ramen I settled in at Aoba a Japanese chain with a few outposts in Singapore. The ramen was perfect- hot salty with high quality pork slices and tasty enoki mushrooms. I went back the next day determined to sample more of the menu. The gyoza were great but surprisingly my favorite snack was the hot buttered corn. Exactly as described, it was simple and heavenly. A perfectly sweet counterpoint to the ramen’s briny goodness.
