Kiwami Ramen & Gyoza Bar is another Japanese restaurants where ordinary patrons can enjoy affordable good quality Japanese food. The casual Japanese restaurant which has been serving premium ramen in Guoco Tower has opened a new outlet in Chinatown Point.
Kiwami Chinatown Point
The new Kiwami Ramen & Gyoza Bar on level 2 of Chinatown Point looks like the typical Japanese casual dining restaurant you see in various malls in Singapore. There is nothing fancy but it is pleasant.
Kiwami Chinatown Point Menu
Kiwami Chinatown Point offers ramen with tonkotsu broth that is simmered for over 10 hours using 100% Japanese pork bones and house recipe noodles crafted with Hokkaido wheat. There is also fried rice with Miyazaki wagyu (Japan’s No. 1 beef). Mazesoba, gyoza and other side dishes are also on their menu.
Below are pictures of a few pages of Kiwami’s Menu. A menu can also be viewed online (link below).
We ordered the Grilled Gyoza ($5.80). There was a choice of dipping sauces. We opted for the Lemon Pepper & Vinegar Sauce.
The Japanese dumplings filled with minced pork was nice. The skin was thin but had sufficient bite and there were nice crispy bits. The gyozas were not greasy. The sauce was not very special. On the whole the dish was quite enjoyable.
Ramen & Mazesoba
We ordered the Kiwami Original Tonkatsu Ramen ($10.80) and Kurobuta Stew Mazesoba ($11.80).
Kiwami Original Tonkatsu Ramen had rich creamy broth which was flavourful. The noodles were a tad soft and not remarkable. However, they soaked up the broth well. The pork slices had a nice balance of lean and fatty parts. They were tender and went very well with the noodles. On the whole the ramen dish was delectable and satisfying.
We did not have high expectation for the Mazesoba – which was cold dry noodles with cold stew. We were pleasantly surprised. The toppings were quite generous and the noodles had good texture. The dish was a nice change from the usual ramen and was rather palatable.
Affordable Good Food
Kiwami Chinatown Point offers a variety of Japanese dishes. It is a pleasant comfortable place serving food with quality ingredients. The prices are affordable. We were not disappointed with the dishes we tried. We would not mind going back there to try the Miyazaki wagyu fried rice and snow crab fried rice.
