1. Kamo Soba Keisuke
Kamo Soba Keisuke is yet another one of Chef Keisuke’s outlets for those looking for Holland Village food. This is his second duck ramen restaurant, with the first being in Tokyo. The Special Hybrid Duck Broth Ramen ($19.90++) comes in two types: one with clear broth and one with rich broth.
The clear soup is light yet full of flavour after being simmered with pork bones for a good five hours. However, if a light broth is not your cup of tea, go for the rich broth! The broth is further thickened by adding more duck bones and simmering it for eight hours.
