Ramen revolutionary Keisuke Takeda strikes again – this time with a ramen joint that uses the four seasons as its central theme. This new 56-seater outlet earns some new creations by Takeda, as well as a richer, punchier pork broth made with 50 percent more pork bones and collagen in the pot for a thicker soup consistency that just might border on gelak (satiating) for some. The options are inspired by the seasons in Japan: the Spring bowl ($10.90) sees the addition of parmesan cheese and basil for an Italian twist to the dish; Summer adds a feisty scoop of spicy meat miso, sichuan and sayenne peppers; Autumn takes a mushroom and bonito turn; and Winter is the basic Tonkotsu option (with the thicker broth available only at Four Seasons). There’s also the King ($11.90), which subtly incorporates flavours from all four seasons’ bowls. As with all Keisuke’s venues, you can specify how you like your noodles and soup done, and of course, there are unlimited self-serve eggs and bean sprouts. Be sure to also order a bottle or two of the Keisuke-branded Green Tea Cola ($3.80), a sweet, pop-like drink with only a light hint of bitterness from the matcha – Tonkotsu King Four Seasons is the first in all Takeda’s establishments to serve the Tokyo-made soda.
