Been wanting to check out Ohsho for some time, but during lunchtime, this little corner eatery is always packed! Last Monday, I finished my errands in time for an early lunch. The place was still relatively empty, yay!
For S$11.00 nett, I had the ramen and gyoza set. The ramen was exceptionally springy. I was expecting the broth to be milky rich, as is typical of Japanese ramen stock. Surprisingly, it was clear and light, and less salty than others I’ve tried.
The two slices of chashu were nice and tender. The crunchy sweetcorn, beansprouts, kelp, and chopped spring onion provided interesting texture and color, too.
On its own, this is tasty enough for a quick ramen fix. But compared to big boys like Noodle House Ken and Ramen Santouka (yes, despite my aversion to its super salty broth!), Ohsho’s ramen is way, waaay inferior.
The gyoza is even worse! Limp, insipid filling and soggy skin (save for the fried side), this is the most awful gyoza I’ve had. Ever! Eating this really made me regret not hopping over to Noodle House Ken’s for the superior ramen and fat, luscious gyoza!
From other reviews, it seems that Ohsho is more well-known for the chahan (fried rice). Maybe that’s what their customers come for, as well as other items like curry rice. Prices here are more pocket-friendly, too. But I’d rather pay a little more and enjoy the real deal just a few steps away at Noodle House Ken.
