Don’t know about you but Japanese cuisine is just something we can’t get enough of! It could be because each dish is meant to remain true to its roots and so most Japanese restaurants maintain a high quality in their cooking. We‘re so excited to share with you about the new Halal Restaurant in town – Goshin Ramen. We were so thankful to have been able to get our hands on some of their popular dishes.
Note! Goshin Ramen is known to serve big bowls of servings so bring your friends along when you’re here!
Located in Changi Airport’s Terminal 4, Goshin Ramen is Halal-Certified and serves authentic Japanese cuisine. On top of that, Goshin Ramen also experiments with fusion dishes like their Nasi Lemak Donburi with an aim to create a dish familiar to the older generation of the Malay community in Singapore. The Nasi Lemak Donburi came as a surprise to us since the Nasi Lemak (rice that is cooked with coconut milk) was not as fragrant as the traditional Nasi Lemak. It turns out that they wanted to replace the heavy taste of coconut milk with something lighter so that it does not overpower the entire dish. After rounds of research and development, they found that Virgin Coconut Oil was the best alternative to replace the coconut milk.
To be completely honest, we were not expecting the Nasi Lemak to be very different from the traditional Nasi Lemak. However, after tasting the dish, we then understood how the absence of that strong coconut flavor gave the rest of the ingredients a chance to stand out. The dish is topped off with their very own egg tamago (Japanese omelet) in replacement of sunny side up eggs in the traditional Nasi Lemak, turmeric flavored fried chicken, tempura bits, shredded seaweed and lastly the classic sambal (chili), an essential in any Nasi Lemak dish.
Their Wagyu Karubi Ramen (SGD$18.80) is a must-try when you’re here. The broth in this dish is extremely light but still flavorful. Different from different Japanese restaurants, you might find that their broth could be on the salty side since the flavor of the broth tends to overpower the dish. However, something about this broth makes it really light but still complements the main ingredient of the dish which is their wagyu. The Wagyu Karubi Ramen uses parts of the Wagyu beef ribs air-flown from Japan.
If you’re a fan of huge prawns, the Daikairo Ramen (SGD$16.80) is something you want to get your hands on. Just like their Wagyu Karubi Ramen, the Daikairo Ramen is cooked with a broth that is extremely light and easy to savor. Personally, we’re not fans of thick and salty broths so this one is right up our alley. The Daikairo Ramen uses a seafood broth that has a little spice in it to overcome the jelak-ness (when one gets sick of a certain taste) but is completely safe for kids. In this dish, you’ll be served with Big Tiger Prawns right at the top of this dish.
Goshin Ramen also serves an array of dry ramen such as their Ramen Rebus (SGD$14.80, another twist to the traditional Mee Rebus), Mala Ramen (SGD$16.80), Tori Katsu Kare Ramen (SGD$14.80) and their very own Toryufu Ramen (SGD16.80). The Toryufu Ramen is a truffle flavored ramen topped off with sauteed mixed mushroom. Some of the mushrooms include oyster and enoki mushroom. Then, break into their Ajitsuke Tamago and watch the golden egg yolk ooze out of it! The egg is then topped off with some fish roe to complete the dish.
If the sashimi is something you’d look for in a Japanese restaurant, you bet there is. Goshi Ramen serves an extensive menu of sashimi and sushi. Some of their signatures include their Sashimi Platter (SGD$18), Kani Tempura (SGD$2.60) and their Tamago Zensai (SGD$3.20). On our next visit to Goshin Ramen, we’ll definitely try some of their Nadare Moriawase (Avalanche Sushi Roll) and their Aburi Sushi. We’re really eyeing their Spicy Shake Nadare (SGD$12.80, fresh salmon trout avalanche with special homemade spicy mayonnaise), their Aburi Shake Chizu (SGD$ 3.40, seared salmon sushi with cheese) and their Aburi Wagyu (SGD$12, seared Wagyu sushi).
Lastly, presenting our favorite dish, one that we’ll definitely come back for more. Drum roll please!
Something about this dish tastes just so good. The Saba-shio (SGD$12) is a grilled mackerel served on a grill with heated charcoal to maintain the heat and the freshness of the grilled mackerel. Goshin Ramen had originally served the grilled mackerel on an ordinary plate when they first opened. However, they soon realized that customers value an extravagant presentation. Thankfully they decided to keep the grill because it definitely elevated the dish and keeps it fresh thanks for the charcoal. The Saba-shio is definitely something we’d recommend to anyone who’s going to Goshin Ramen. Love!
Drinks! We tried their Goshin Sunburst and their Summer Peach Soda. While the Summer Peach Soda gives a great presentation with an orange purple ombre when you stir the drink (an illustration of the sunset), we love the Goshin Sunburst. The Goshin Sunburst, in a nutshell, is a peach syrup that is being mixed with soda. However, what we love most about the drink are the bobas. These little bobas are the type that bursts into a liquid when you squeeze it in your mouth. It definitely made the refreshing drink a lot more interesting!
