Nope, this is not another post about a fairly new hidden cafe furnished quirkily and only offers coffee and dessert items that you need to try the next weekend.

Overlooking the fact that you might not know you’ve arrived at your destination, Ronin, do offer pretty decent (non jap related) food but some of their…antics puzzles me, I’ll elaborate.

Acid Bar

A quick casual post while I wait for my friends to get to dinner. It’s Thursday but hey, pre-dinner n pre-Friday drinks are still as awesome. I like acid bar with their live band though it’s a little loud so yes now I have the bar to myself (plus one other white collared man). I like it like this, very cosy! Important information: happy hour 5-9pm, beers and housepours only, no wines.

My vodka/sprite companion for the time being, $6 nett during happy hour is very reasonable, in the middle of town too! Juice mixers +$2. This cup is quite strong, maybe because I’m early?

Acid bar is at peranakan place where there is a whole cluster of bars like Alley Bar, no. 5 cocktail bar and ice cold beer so lots of options! Alley bar similarly has happy hour till 9pm, but if you are looking at after 9pm, try no. 5 cocktail bar opposite for their 2-for-$16 martinis from 9pm-1am.

Update: so we did have a post 9pm session in the end, here’s some lychee martinis and peanuts for you!

As you can imagine, this is a pretty huge milestone for any organization, and Nestle has planned a whole year of celebrations and activities to commemorate their amazing journey with us. The latest activity is taking place in the digital space, with Nestle’s launch of their iFeedback App!

Ramen Champion II – Ikkousha

On my first visit I tried Iroha, Bario and Gantetsu. This time I had Ikkosha for my favorite pork bone soup based ramen.

Ikkousha serves Hakata style ramen, that has the thin type of noodles that tends to be harder. I didn’t order the Hakata Ajimen Ramen because I realize that it is cheaper to order the ramen without egg and +1 egg for $1!! Results in the same thing, ramen with egg, chashu and black fungus. Not sure if it affects the portion of my chashu though because if not, the portion is pretty small.

On the whole, I would say it’s not impressive. The soup base was a little salty, and the chashu was tougher than most. Their egg was pretty good though, half runny and semi firm whites. Ikkousha was the leading stall for both Q1 and Q2 into the championship but there are lots of other choices in the same arena I’ll say!

*There is another Ramen Champion at T3!
