Torimaru, Collagen Chicken Ramen @ Ramen Champion

Torimaru is the latest brand that hits Ramen Champion, serving collagen-packed creamy chicken ramen also widely known as Tori Paitan Ramen. Competing against the other 6 brands where Tonkotsu Ramen is gaining the most popularity, Torimaru comes in differently with the highlight of their collagen broth.





Torimaru is helmed by Chef Takano Koji and has experimented his ramen with over 10 kinds of noodles before finding the best that matches his Tori Paitan. Anyway, there are two different types of noodles used at Torimaru, thin yellow noodles for the ramens and thick white noodles for the tsukemen (dipping noodles).

There are 4 variations of ramen on the menu: Original Paitan, Shoyu Paitan, Spicy Paitan and Paitan Tsukemen.


This Special Chicken Ramen $16 is packed with collagen that is extremely nourishing. The creamy white soup is achieved by robust boiling for over ten hours, with five kinds of chicken parts and vegetables. The standard toppings includes Chicken Breast Chashu which is extremely tender, as well as homemade Chicken Meat Balls, Ajitama (Soft Boiled Eggs), Japanese Leek and Nori (Dried Seaweed).


Fans of dipping noodles will find joy in this Special Chicken Tsukemen $16.80. A thicker ramen noodle is used on this while the toppings are all the same for special bowls. I personally prefer the creamy white chicken soup base for ramen instead of this, the tsukemen one is richer with garlic.



Some other 'chicken' side dishes we had to compliment the ramen, such as Chicken Nanban $8 and Chicken Salad $8.80. Chicken Nanban is made up of fried chicken topped with tartar dressing, more like egg mayo sort of dressing. While on the other hand, the Chicken Salad consist of tender chicken char shu, chicken meat balls and sesame dressing. It's basically the same toppings you find on your ramen.

For a change in the usual tonkotsu ramen, Torimaru serves up a variety of chicken ramen and side dishes. Chicken breast is used for the topping of the ramen due to its low fat content, and it pairs perfectly with the Paitan Ramen. Anyway, Torimaru is available at Ramen Champion Bugis+, Great World City and Terminal 3.
