The signature tori paitan (tori means chicken and paitan means white soup, referring to a thick and creamy soup) ramen from Ippudo's new takeaway concept Kuro-Obi may be all the rage, but I suggest you head to the Ippudo outlet nearby for dessert ramen.
The almond jelly noodle ($6, photo) - served in milky "soup" - is one of the ramen brand's new offerings for the new Marina Bay Sands outlet and it is a refreshing way to end a hearty ramen meal. I am normally not a fan of almond desserts as many taste very strongly of artificial essence, but I slurped all of this up after savouring my bowl of ramen.
WHERE: Ippudo, B2-54/55 Marina Bay Sands, 2 Bayfront Avenue
WHEN: 10.30am - 11pm (Sundays to Thursdays and public holidays) and 10.30am - 11.30pm (Fridays, Saturdays and eves of public holidays)
