Tonkotsu Kazan Ramen: Singapore's First-Ever Volcano Ramen & Volcano Bingsu at Liang Court


Tonkotsu Kazan Ramen...

In recent years, we witnessed a huge surge in the number of ramen restaurants opening in Singapore. From truffle-flavoured ramen to Michelin-starred ramen, we all have our favourite to-go ramen places. But have you ever heard of “Volcano Ramen” before? Located at Liang Court, Tonkotsu Kazan Ramen is Singapore first-ever Volcano ramen specialty restaurant that offers an extensive range of different flavoured ramen (from normal ramen to Volcano ramen) served in their signature stone bowls. Most shockingly, the prices of their ramen are extremely affordable and the portion is insanely huge. They also offer value-for-money set lunches for the office crowd. 

At first glance, you might think that it is just a gimmick (which I initially thought as well) but I can assure you that it isn’t. The custom-made cover and the signature stone bowl not only retain the heat but they also enhanced the flavour of the broth, causing it to be rich and flavourful. 


Pan-fried Japanese dumplings are one of my favourite snacks in Japan. They are similar to the Chinese version of dumplings but tend to be more subtle in flavour, stuffed with juicy pork and seasoned cabbage. The gyoza at Tonkatsu Kazan Ramen was not that bad. It was not soggy and the lightly crisp bottom of the dumplings were so irresistible. The texture (soft and crispy) was definitely memorable. They were also very generous in the fillings they put inside the dumplings. Overall, the proportion was just right!

Tomato Fried Rice with Chicken // $11

Tomato Fried Rice? I was quite sceptical about the combination because I don’t really order tomato-flavoured food but this was surprisingly delicious. The tomato flavour was strong but it was not too overpowering. It was not sweet either. A few mouthfuls and I got myself addictive. The chicken was well-marinated and crispy. What I liked most was the burnt and crispy rice at the bottom. Legit good and definitely worth trying!

Kazan Curry // $15.80 (S) & $18.80 (L)

The broth was finger-licking good! It was so rich, creamy and flavourful. The melted cheese just makes the entire dish so complete, especially thickening the broth into a gravy texture. The broth was so addictive and if you give me a bowl of rice, I could easily finish it just with the gravy alone. It wasn’t very spicy and sweet. Oh yah, before I forget, the portion is huge. I couldn’t finish the small serving so you might want to share it with a few friends. I love the texture of the noodles as well. 

Hinomaru Tomato Kazan // $15.80 (S) & $18.80 (L)

Honestly, I fall in love with tomato after trying this! The tomato flavour was strong and aromatic. There’s a subtle spicy sensation when you drink the broth which I deeply loved. Also, you can’t find this elsewhere. Only Tonkotsu Kazan Ramen serves tomato-flavoured ramen! You really have to try this to understand why I’m trying to say!

Matcha Bingsu // $8

This was definitely value-for-money. The portion was enormous and they were very generous in the ice cream and azuki beans servings. The only thing I thought could be improved would be the matcha flavour. If the flavour was stronger, it would have been the perfect dessert for the scorching hot weather. 

Thank you Tonkotsu Kazan Ramen for the great hospitality and invitation!
