Marukin Ramen Tokyo @ Scotts Square


Marukin Ramen is a Tokyo based ramen chain in the ever increasing number of ramen restaurants in Singapore. In contrast to serving its signature Hakata style ramen made from pork broth, this local chain opts for a chicken stock for its soup base. Chicken Chasyu is also the main ingredients instead of Pork Chasyu here.

The four types of soup based available at the Singapore chain are Shoyu Chicken White Soup, Shio Chicken White Soup, Miso Chicken White Soup, Shoyu Chicken Clear Soup.

Shoyu Nori Tama Ramen 4.2/5
Shoyu Nori Tama Ramen 4.2/5

The Shoyo Nori Tama Ramen ($12.90) comes with a perfect combination of Chicken Chasyu and Nitamago, topped with Kikurage mushrooms, Green Onion, toasted Nori seaweed and a dash of sesame seeds. The savory light brown broth mix of soy sauce combined with their homemade chicken soup has intenese flavour and not as oily as those pork broth.

Unique to other ramen is the use of Chicken Chasyu instead of Pork Chasyu. The chicken meat was surprisingly tender and flavourful. It was really good.

Tori-Zukushi Donburi 4.2/5

Donburi is a Japanese rice bowl dish consist of fish, meat, vegetables or other ingredients simmered togther and served over rice. The Tori-Zukushi Donburi ($11.90) is served with homemade special sauce with Chicken Chasyu, Chicken Meat Balls, Chicken Wing, Nitamago, Spring Onions, Shredded Nori and Steamed Rice.

Gyoza 2.5/5

The Gyoza (5 for $5.90) is handmade with freshly marinated minced chicken and shredded vegetables. It was crispy on the outside, juicy and succulent on the inside.  Unfortunately the filling was a tad salty and I didn't finish them.

  1. The ramen looks different! Chicken Chasyu? Does it mean that it is less sinful?

    1. Hahaha kind of. I feel that the broth is less oily.
