I am a Japanese food lover but I don't really like ramen in particular because I think that they are overpriced and not so oishii that you have to queue for over 30 minutes to get a bowl. (For example, Ippudo in Singapore). However, ever since I arrived in Shanghai, I noticed that the Japanese ramen here is relatively much cheaper and I don't have to wait for even 10 minutes to get a bowl.  Ajisen ramen is almost everywhere in Shanghai ( as it is in Singapore lol) and the first one which I tried was naturally at their shop but the taste is ……….. Anyway, I discovered this "Fukushima Ramen" near my place and boy, I am glad that I found it!  

Ramen in Shanghai is pretty cheap. The authentic ramen found at this "Fukushima Ramen" shop costs an average of 30 yuan per bowl.  That is about SGD$6. Here's a comparison of prices of ramen:

  • Ajisen Ramen Singapore: ~$15
  • Ajisen Ramen Shanghai: ~$5 (25 yuan)
  • Ippudo Ramen Singapore: ~$17
  • Ippudo Ramen Tokyo: ~$11 (700 yen) 
  • Authentic Ramen in Shanghai: ~$6 (30 yuan)

Here's how the ramen which we ordered looked like:

Fukushima ramen, added portion, thin noodle, normal gravy, tonkotsu base – 34 yuan
