If you’re a Japanese food fanatic living in Singapore, you’ve probably slurped more than your fair share of ramen noodle soup at famous outlets like Ramen Gallery Takumen. You’ve probably also caught a flying pan-seared scallop in your mouth during an acrobatic display in a Japanese teppanyaki restaurant. Here at Fukuda Ramen Gallery & Yakitori Dining, on the northern fringes of Tanjong Pagar and right by the Telok Ayer station down Telok Ayer Road, two of the most famous culinary styles from the Land of The Rising Sun come together in an izakaya-style setting – the tricks of teppanyaki and the reliably moreish flavours of premium ramen.
It could be claimed that Japanese ramen is just as popular here in Singapore as it is back in Japan, with hordes of diners queueing up at the city’s best ramen restaurants and hole-in-the-wall outlets for a quick noodle soup fix. Eminently slurpable – in fact, Japanese culianry decorum demands you slurp loudly in order to voice your appreciation to the maestros toiling over the boiling broth in the kitchen – ramen is a popular choice for an express lunch, but also satisfies for an evening meal. Along Telok Ayer Street in Tanjong Pagar, Fukuda Ramen Gallery & Yakitori Dining is where some of the best ramen action is at.
But it’s not all ramen here. As the restaurant’s name suggests, Fukuda Ramen Gallery & Yakitori Dining doubles up as an authentic Japanese grillhouse, with all manner of ingredients grilled with military precision on the traditional teppanyaki. Wagyu beef, smoked duck steak, teriyaki chicken and even hamburger get the Fukuda treatment at this popular Tanjong Pagar restaurant, open for lunch and dinner for an eager crowd of Singapore’s Far Eastern food fanatics.
