Was invited to Ramen Champion at Bugis +

Let's get started by introducing  to you guys the 2 new Tonkotsu which joined Ramen Champion

Awarded Ramen Rookie of the Year in 2012 by Ramen Walker Magazine,  Mendokoro Aoi’s new twist on the traditional Tonkotsu is a popular choice among Japanese female customers.

MENDOKORO AOI’s Tonkotsu-Ramen Champion $16.50
Unlike other traditional tonkotsu, the broth is cooked over big flame in shorter hours with pork and chicken feet.  Sesame seeds and special bean paste is added to enhance the taste.

Their egg came in a whole, so I cut it up to show you the mouth watering lava egg yolk :P~~

Both King Luis and I preferred the Special Ramen by TONKOTSU ITTO.  Everybody have their own taste, so pop in to find out which you prefer!

Rubbing our tummies, the Ramen Big Eater Challenge was about to begin!

It was an eye-opening and jaw dropping event to us >.<
The contest received overwhelming response, only 60 participants were short listed.  Out of which 7 best would be selected to the finals to compete with Tomoko Miyake, a female big eater from Japan.

The contestants ate and ate and ATE bowls after bowls of ramen!

I will consider myself a hero if I can finish a bowl of ramen myself.  These contestants could finish more than 5 bowls!!!  Their stomach are pit-less or what?!!?  I couldn't believe my eyes no matter how widely I opened them lolxx...    I also had this unspoken fear that one of them might puke or choke themselves, so I was very tensed up as a viewer >.<

 Here's a frightening pic of a contestant.
