Collagen Ramen at Koufu

Ramen stall koufu hdb hub toa payohBoasting a variety of 13 types of ramen on their menu, this stall should have something to suit your liking. Don’t expect Japanese ramen though, their speciality is collagen ramen (not egg-based ramen) in different soup bases, with different toppings. Collagen has anti-inflammatory properties, as well as anti-ageing and weight loss benefits (or so I’ve heard).

This stall’s ramen is more chinese than anything else if you ask me. Although I’ve had my share of bad experiences with food court ramen…this one’s different. Each strand of noodle is silky smooth, and the soup’s really tasty. Previously featured by the Straits Times, this stall makes it a point to have promotional prices for different items on the menu. Today, their Roast Pork & Corn Ramen (usual: $5, promo: $4.50) was one of a few.

Roast Pork & Corn Ramen KoufuThe Roast Pork & Corn Ramen [***.] had generous portions of corn, roasted pork cubes, seaweed, carrots, and surprisingly…stewed egg. Well not the yummy Japanese sort from Ken Ramen House, but fairly decent nonetheless. A big bowl worth ordering. Prior to this I’ve also tried their Seafood Ramen ($5.50) [***], but I still prefer their Roast Pork & Corn. Other ramen favourites on the menu include the Char Siew Ramen ($5.50).

Fried Fish Ramen KoufuMy mum ordered her usual Fried Fish Ramen ($4.80) [***] which had the same soup base as mine. The fish wasn’t oily so the overall combination was quite satisfying.

I’d definitely drop by this place again to try their spicy ramens. Looks like there’s hope for food court stalls just yet.
