This Yokohama-style Ramen at IPPUDO Will Feed Your Wanderlust

Yokohama Iekei Ramen

Feeling wanderlust and wishing you could travel to Japan? IPPUDO offers you the next best thing with its newest seasonal offering: Yokohama Iekei Ramen! This comforting bowl of ramen is made with an umami Shoyu base, a combination of IPPUDO’s Signature Tonkotsu and Tori Paitan broth, and oil.

One of the most popular ramen styles in Japan with over 40 years of rich history, Iekei ramen is a blend of different styles of broths, and was first invented by ramen restaurant Yoshimura-ya, Yokohama, in 1974.  The word ‘Iekei’ literally means “homestyle or family-style”. In Japan, customers get to tailor the taste intensity, noodle doneness and amount of oil to their own liking.

IPPUDO’s version follows the most well-loved proportions with a delicate balance of all three factors. Measuring 1.33mm, the medium-thick noodles with a springy texture are immersed in a rich base of Shoyu, IPPUDO’s Signature creamy Tonkotsu (Pork Bone) broth and the rich, milky white Tori Paitan (Chicken Bone) broth. With a thick consistency, the unctuous soup packs a delightful umami flavour and is rich with collagen.

The toppings include pork belly, as well as pork loin chashu, spinach and homemade seasoned tamago. The spicy white leek marinated with a homemade blend of spicy seasoning brings the broth to life with a touch of fiery heat. Mix it well with the soup — the ramen dish becomes highly reminiscent of IPPUDO’s famous Akamaru Motoaji.

Priced from S$16 (2pcs chashu) and S$18 (4pcs chashu) onward, IPPUDO’s Iekei Ramen will be available for a limited time from 3 February 2021 to 31 March 2021 for dine-in, takeaway and delivery.
