Ramen Keisuke Tonkotsu King Matsuri : Great ramen minus the queue!

Hidden Gem at Parkway Parade

As a huge fan of the Ramen Keisuke Tonkotsu King chain, I have done my fair share of queuing at their outlets. At popular outlets like Tanjong Pagar, Paya Lebar and Bugis, queues can extend up to 1 hour or more.

Hence, imagine my excitement when I learnt that they actually have an outlet at Parkway Parade – with little to no queue at all! Ramen Keisuke Tonkotsu King Matsuri is a hidden gem, situated on the outside of Parkway Parade with lower food traffic. It is beautifully decorated with lanterns & a grand centerpiece to bring across a festival (‘matsuri’) atmosphere.

Familiar Favorites: Free Flow Eggs & Beansprouts

Similar to the other outlets, Tonkotsu King Matsuri quickly served us free flow eggs and beansprouts as soon as we were seated. I love the hard boiled eggs and always eat at least 2 to feel like I got my money’s worth. 🙂

We started off with some Gyoza ($6 for 6). These were done quite well, with a crisp base and a juicy interior. They were polished off pretty fast.

Comforting Ramen at Bargain Prices

I am always so amazed at how you can get such a good quality Tonkotsu Ramen for just $11.90 (with no add-ons). The rich, savory soup is such a treat on a cold day, not to mention the huge slice of chashu.

With the free flow eggs and bean sprouts it is more than enough for me as a full meal. You can choose to add on seaweed, menma (bamboo shoots) and a bunch of other things if you like!

We also tried the lighter chicken-based Shio Ramen ($11.50). Similar to the tonkotsu ramen, it came with a slab of chashu pork and menma instead of black fungus. Their menma is very nicely done – marinated until savory & soft, so not too chewy.

Even so, if you prefer thick soup like I do, stick to the tonkotsu ramen as the shio ramen broth really not as satisfying as the tonkotsu soup. Felt too healthy for me – I just want my rich, oily & umami-packed soup!

The Verdict

All in all – would definitely love to come back here again for super affordable ramen without the long queues you see in town. Matsuri also has several festival-themed ramen inventions, so will be back to try those next!
