The Ultimate Ramen Champion Singapore

By Beautifulbuns

Now I’ve always been more of a noodle than rice person -  I guess I like it longer hurhurhur. But that aside, I really do enjoy noodles, be it Japanese ramen, Korean ramyeon or Chinese lamian.

I attended this food event a couple of weeks back at Bugis+ (the former Iluma). The Ultimate Ramen Champion Singapore is about who will sell the most number of ramen bowls from 1 August 2013 to 31 July 2014. There are a total of 9 contenders (3 at Changi Airport Terminal 3, and the remaining 6 at Bugis+ Ramen Champion outlet).  Last year’s champion was Ikkousha with 118,500 bowls.

I had to use this provided shot cos this nearly didn’t arrive – the manager in charge (I assume?) was kinda angsty and demanded that his staff serve some other tables first. Not sure what really was his problem , along with the Chinese PR girl at the front reception. She looked so pretty and sweet, but boy, are looks deceiving. She was totally unwelcoming, as though I was a loanshark runner knocking on the wrong door. She didn’t even wanna give me the press kit (after whisper-conferencing not-so-subtly to her colleague  that “there are not enough press kits”). Really? Like, really?

Anyhoos, angst-rant over. Back to le food topic at hand. nom. Can’t decide what to eat? Maybe you can do what I do – go the frivolous way and pick based on how the chef looks muahahaha.
