Slurp on Ippudo x Li Nanxing dried scallop hae bee hiam ramen from now until 23 Dec

The ramen wars have long been raging on. For me, I’m a loyal Ichiran girl, but I know there’s another camp that begs to differ. To some, Ippudo remains the reigning champion of Japanese ramen chains, and apparently, local actor Li Nanxing thinks so too. He’s teamed up with Ippudo to put a new special dish on their menu for a limited time only—the dried scallop hae bee hiam ramen.

The Singapore exclusive will only be sold starting today until 23 December 2020, so you’d better head down and get in line if you’re hoping to try it at all. Each bowl will be going at S$25++; pricey but it comes as no surprise given the household Ippudo brand.

The special dish comprises of miso paste, sambal-infused garlic oil, as well as the star of the dish—dried scallop hae bee hiam by none other than Li Nanxing himself. The aforementioned blend is then incorporated into Ippudo’s signature tonkotsu broth that many know and love.

Apart from the bowl of ramen, a carefully-curated secchu chose junta daiginjo genshu sake is available to pair with your main at S$9 a glass, as long as you order the dried scallop hae bee hiam ramen.

I personally have never tried the celebrity’s cooking, nor do I plan to anytime soon, but a dried scallop and hae bee hiam combination sounds just divine. If you’re looking to supplement your meal with other ramen flavours as well, consider the Niku Soba, which is a Singapore exclusive ramen featuring thinly sliced pork belly and Hakata-style noodles, all steeped in a rich, blended pork broth. A favourite of mine that hits the spot every time.
