Fans of authentic Sapporo style miso ramen would find their way to Miharu Sapporo Ramen in the past, which was one of the first Japanese restaurants in Singapore to serve this style of ramen.

Previously located at Gallery Hotel and then Millenia Walk, it was one of the first Japanese restaurants in Singapore to serve this style of ramen in a rather rustic setting.

And that was before the famous Hakata-style brands such as IPPUDO Ramen was launched in Singapore.

I happened to chance upon a Japanese food stall serving Miharu at Food Plaza by Meidi-Ya, located at the basement 2 of Great World.

It co-shares a space with another Sapporo Nishiyama Ramen stall, and so people may just not notice it.
There is another outlet found within Meidi-Ya at Millenia Walk.

The menu is lean, with the recommended including Tokusen Miso ($17.80), Tokusen Shiro Miso ($17.80), Miso Tonkotsu ($17.80) and Tokusen Shoyu ($14.80) and Tokusen Ton Shio ($17.80) – special pork flavoured soup base with a unique taste of salt.

Prices are $3 higher than what it used to be in a restaurant (so some customers may feel it is expensive for a ‘food court’.

Their Sapporo style ramen is commonly associated with medium sized, curly yellow noodles in miso-based ramen, topped with sweet corn, butter, and bean sprouts.

The key ingredients to the ramen, such as noodles, miso, kelp (konbu dashi) and soup base are all directly supplied by manufacturers In Hokkaido.

Miharu’s chewy Sapporo ramen is said to be made with water from the well.

These Japanese noodles would come frozen from Japan and have to be thawed for a number of days to achieve that springy bite.

A point to note is the soup is generally rich, thick and saltier than the typical Tonkotsu soup bases, suitable for the colder weathers of Hokkaido.

For a customer who is trying this for the first time, may feel it is salty and on the greasier side.

Taste-wise, it was quite close to what I remember is to be at the previous Millenia Walk location, but of course the vibes and all are not quite the same as the good-old Gallery Hotel days.
