The first restaurant in Singapore to offer Halal ramen, Ichikokudo spends hours everyday slowly simmering chicken bones to create a rich and flavorful soup. The finishing touch is made with a blend of bonito and mackerel, all brought together with subtle umami from Hokkaido kelp. The restaurant also uses a special blend of flour that includes Hokkaido wheat to create their richly textured and satisfying noodles. Topped off with a generous helping of Aosa seaweed to evoke the aroma of the Hokkaido sea!
