Cheap ramen around Singapore
As a huge ramen lover, I’ve always had to splurge on quality ramen. In fact, this has become a weekly affair, something my wallet isn’t too pleased about. Lucky for us, Singapore is not short of cheap ramen choices under $10, including halal ones, dry versions and more.
1. Buta Kin
Buta Kin serves up ramen at one of the most affordable prices in our list. Their Tonkotsu Original Ramen is priced at just $5.50 for a regular-sized bowl. Spice lovers can also get the Tonkotsu Red Ramen ($6.50), which packs some heat from a spicy paste made with minced meat. Expect thicker slices of chashu than your average bowl of ramen. If you can’t go without your daily dose of greens, the Vegetable Ramen ($5) is an option to consider as well.
Check out our full review of Buta Kin.

2. Ramen Taisho
Ramen Taisho is a great option for those who appreciate the strong flavour of garlic with their noodles. Despite having a thin broth, the Black Garlic Tonkotsu Ramen ($7.80) remains flavourful with a distinct nuttiness from the black garlic oil used. Alternatively, if you’re one who likes all things spicy, spice your meal up with their Spicy Black Garlic Tonkotsu Ramen ($8.80) instead.
