Ramyeon, the popular Korean instant noodle dish, is known for its bold flavours and comforting warmth.

While it is true that Ramyeon can be easily prepared at home with instant noodle packs, there is something satisfying about savouring a steaming bowl in comfort.

Why do people opt to eat Ramyeon outside when they can whip it up in their kitchens? The answer lies in the experience.

Dining out offers different toppings, and the opportunity to enjoy Ramyeon in a vibrant atmosphere that elevates the simple dish.

Join DFD as we explore these 10 Ramyeon places in Singapore:

Seoul Bunsik 서울분식
Far East Plaza #01-01, 14 Scotts Road, Singapore 228213
Opening Hours: 11am – 9pm (Mon – Sun)

The star attraction at Seoul Bunsik is undoubtedly the DIY Ramyeon (from $7.80), where you relish the novelty of crafting your noodle dish similar to the convenience store culture of Korea.

There is a variety of Korean instant noodles, hot water dispensers, and aluminium plates. So you may wonder: So it’s just instant noodles? I can do this at home, too.

One of the perks is that you can try out various Ramyeon brands with a variety of add-ons, such as mandu (dumplings), odeng (fishcake), kimchi, sausage, spam, and cheese (ranging from $1 to $2).

There is also an option for “cooked by chef” ($10.80), as well as other items, such as Spam Cheese Gimbap ($6.90 for half, $13.80 for full), Tteokbokki ($13.80), Odaeng Fish Cake ($2.50), and more.

Korean House Singapore
87 Killiney Road Singapore 239533
Opening Hours: 11:30am – 3pm, 5:30pm – 9pm (Tues – Sun), Closed Mon

Korean House’s narrow, brick-lined space in Killiney serves comfort food that punches way above its look.

From stews to meats and from noodles to rice, they have it all for your viewing and dining pleasure.

Nothing on the menu is so fancy that it will knock your pants off, but they are reliable and, most importantly, authentic.

They have a Ramyeon in Hot Pot ($14.90) version, which is served steaming hot, perfect for the night if you need a little belly-warmth.

This Ramyeon is not just about the heat; it is about the depth of flavour that comes from a well-made broth that seems to hit the mark.

Nana Bunsik
Newest Mall #01-84, 1 West Coast Drive, Singapore 128020
Opening Hours: 11:30am – 9pm (Tues, Wed, Sun), 11:30am – 1am (Thurs – Sat), Closed Mon

Nana Bunsik serves up a variety of Korean street foods that aims to provide a genuine taste of Korea.

“Bunsik” refers to Korean street food or snacks, typically involving simple, everyday dishes.

This term encompasses popular foods such as Tteokbokki, Gimbap, and Ramyeon, loved for their convenience and comforting flavours.

Their Original Ramyeon ($9.80) had such as flavourful soup base, spicy and addictive at the same time.

Also, it arrived piping hot served in the traditional container, making this one of my favourite renditions in recent times.

Slurp Mee
1 Tessensohn Road, #01-12, Singapore 217701
Opening Hours: 12pm – 9pm (Tues – Fri), 11am – 10pm (Sat), 11am – 9pm (Sun)

Slurp Mee, mentioned as Singapore’s first-ever instant noodle café, is situated near Farrer Park on Tessensohn Road.

It boasts a selection of over 70 types of instant noodles from countries like Korea, Japan, and Indonesia.

The café starts with a base price of $3.50 for a la carte noodles, with a classic set available for $7.90 which includes noodles, three toppings, and a drink.

Despite its wide variety, the café could benefit from offering more unusual noodle brands that aren’t typically found in local supermarkets.

Customers at Slurp Mee can enjoy a customisable meal by selecting from various toppings like cheese meatballs and fish dumplings. However, the lack of egg options could be a drawback for some.

The café itself is designed with convenience in mind, featuring four easy-to-use cooking stations where diners can prepare their chosen noodle dishes to their liking.

Pocha! Korean Street Dining
Northpoint City (South Wing), #B1-181, 1 North Point Drive, Singapore 768019
Opening Hours: 11:30am – 9pm (Mon – Sun)

The team from Pocha! Korean Street Dining visited and researched the streets of Euljiro and Itaewon in Seoul, to recreate a specially curated pojangmacha menu.

A signature dish at Pocha, the Hangari Stir-Fried Ramyeon is a good choice if you feel like having noodles, and probably one of my favourite heres.

A substantially-filling street food, it comprises spongy Korean noodles stir-fried with onions, carrots, leeks, and garlic, then topped with a fried egg.

The addition of Pocha’s signature Hangari sauce in the stir-fry mix gives the dish its sweet-savoury and palatable character.

Kimchi Jib Express
33 Lor Liput Singapore 277744 (Holland Village)
Opening Hours: 11am – 9:30pm (Mon – Sun)

This competitive pricing makes Kimchi Jib Express an appealing option for those seeking economical dining options without compromising on authenticity.

Central to their menu is the Original Kimchi Jjigae, a staple in Korean cuisine.

Where most establishments offer the Army Stew in communal portions, Kimchi Jib has opted for a one-pot serving of Budae Jjigae with Ramyeon ($9.50) suitable for a single diner.

This stew boasts a medley of ingredients, including spam, sausage, rice cakes, ramyeon, beancurd, kimchi, among others.

The taste profile is multi-faceted with more savoury-sweet flavours. I found the base with a sweeter note than the other Kimchi stews.

88 Pocha
26A Lor Mambong Singapore 277685 (Holland Village)
Opening Hours: 11:30am – 3pm, 5:30pm – 12am (Mon – Fri), 11:30am – 3pm, 5:30pm – 11pm (Sat – Sun)

Modern Pojangmacha (which translates to “covered wagon”) seems to be quite trending of late in Singapore, for K-food lovers to grab hearty Korean specialities, street food style items, and a drink or two.

88 Pocha gives the Jjajangmyeon (a dry Korean-Chinese noodle dish flavoured with thick black bean sauce) its own twist in the Truffle Jjajang Ramyeon.

This rendition adds earthiness to the noodles through truffle oil and pairs them with a sunny-side-up and pickled cucumber for an earthy and savoury taste.

Daebak Korean Restaurant
Wilkie Edge #01-18, 8 Wilkie Road, Singapore 228095
Opening Hours: 11am – 9pm (Mon – Sun)

Daebak Korean Restaurant at Wilkie Edge is run by Koreans, which has a typical casual setup for a Korean restaurant.

On the ramyeon side of things, a bowl of spicy Army Stew Ramyeon will set you back only slightly.

All the ingredients in a sharing army stew are thrown into this bowl to get you some value for money.

This was cooked relatively well, with the noodles maintaining a good springy bite.

Spice up your meal with an additional plate of Kimchi, for just a dollar.

Kim Dae Mun Korean Food
Concorde Shopping Mall #01-03D, 100 Orchard Road, Singapore 238840
Opening Hours: 11am – 8pm (Tues – Sun), Closed Mon

Kim Dae Mun Korean Food, located at Concorde Shopping Mall in Singapore, is a popular spot for those craving authentic Korean dishes at affordable prices.

Long queues are a feature at Kim Dae Mun Korean Food during lunch and dinner hours, with every diner itching to get a taste of the authentic Korean fare in town.

You might even feel a pressure to finish your food fast and leave, as the queue sometimes snakes out of the door along the corridor.

This eatery has garnered praise for its straightforward that includes classics like Beef Seafood Soup and Spicy Pork on hotplates.

The Ramyeon here is quite comfortable as it would come sizzling hot.

While the dish is straightforward, focusing on the essentials of spicy, flavourful broth and well-cooked noodles, it captures the essence of traditional Korean cuisine with a homely touch.

Hangawi Korean Food
Fortune Centre #02-18, 190 Middle Road, Singapore 188979
Opening Hours: 10:30am – 4pm, 5:30pm – 8pm (Tues – Fri), 10:30am – 4:30pm, 6pm – 7:30pm (Sat – Mon)

Hangawi Korean Food, located in the Fortune Centre near Bugis, is celebrated for its authentic and affordable Korean cuisine.

This modest eatery offers a range of traditional dishes, ensuring a hearty meal without straining your wallet.

The setting is simple and unpretentious for quick dining without any fuss, reflecting the straightforward, homestyle cooking that Hangawi is known for.

Sometimes I just like a comforting Ramyeon ($6.50) even though I could jolly well cook one at home. But eating it out with extra “liao with strong heat is just a little different.

Diners are treated to a customisable experience, where one can pick between chicken, beef, or pork.

The broth is flavourful but not overly salty, with a hint of spice and making it a slurp-worthy affair. The inclusion of kimchi provides that quintessential Korean tang.
