Media Tasting at Kanada-Ya

Kanada-Ya originated in the small town of Yukuhashi, Fukuoka, Japan, in 2019 and made its way over to London, Japan, Hong Kong, Barcelona and finally to Singapore. Kanada-Ya is voted as the number one ramen in London with numerous other accolades under their belt.


Mr Kanada, the founder believes the perfect al dente wheat noodles is made using a specific type of flour, with the right amount of protein content and alkaline salts to give a firm and springy texture that is paired best with Kanada-Ya’s rich broth. Kanada-Ya is famed for its award-winning classic Tonkotsu ramen, you can also expect Truffle Ramen, Kotteri Tonkotsu Ramen, Gekikara Ramen, Spicy Yuzu Ramen and more.


Love at first taste with this truffle ramen. The truffle broth was thick yet smooth enough with a strong mushroom taste to drinking till the very last delicious drop. Don’t forget to mix the black truffle oil and truffle jelly for the yummy ramen experience! Comes with a slice of tender chashu with a pink blush, perfect hanjuku egg and asparagus. Unfortunately, sad to say that the truffle ramen only available in limited quantities daily (20 per day). Well, I can’t help but to ask why? It is said that the porcini mushroom had to be soaked in the Signature tonkotsu soup broth for 24 hours followed by adding black truffle oil, truffle jelly and truffle marinated belly chashu and to cook for 5 hours. The truffle ramen is worth all the calories totally! Definitely a must try!!!

Truffle Ramen priced starting from S$22.90.


What’s the secret to the award-winning classic Tonkotsu ramen? Mr Kanada, holds onto a secret sauce and imports directly from the original restaurant in Japan to maintain a consistent standard. The base of the pork bone broth is bubbled for 18 hours together with the secret sauce.

After I’ve tried the Tonkotsu ramen, I wasn’t mind blown of the broth, but I enjoyed the ramen ingredient – belly chashu. An intensely flavourful Kanada’s special shoyu tare has steeped into pieces of chashu belly giving a savoury flavour while ramaining tender with the right amount of fats.

The spicy yuzu ramen was a pleasant surprise. Nice harmony of the Signature pork bone broth, corn-fed chicken broth and yuzu miso, none of the ingredient is too overpowering. The chunk of chilli may seem petrified for non-heat lover, rest assure, it’s not that spicy. It is balanced with a refreshing yuzu zing.

Do not be deceived by the unthreatening colour of the Gekikara ramen. It was very spicy, coming from a mild-heat lover. Thereafter, downed with two cups of cold green tea.


As complements to the ramen, there are some side dishes like karaage and crab cream korokke. Would prefer the karaage that is nice and crispy with a light breading.
