These dishes have been specially curated with chefs from both SIA and Ramen Keisuke coming together to ensure that the authenticity of a traditional Japanese dish is delivered to the highest quality. Multiple rounds of testing and simulation were conducted over a period of six months in both Japan and Singapore to ensure that the original and authentic tastes of the ramen dishes are retained in the high-altitude conditions of an in-flight environment. For example, this included fine-tuning the recipe and blanching time to maintain the chewy texture of the ramen noodles, using sous vide cooking to ensure the tenderness of the chicken meat, and sourcing for high-quality ingredients such as pork from Spain.

‘Book the Cook’ will feature the Keisuke Tonkotsu Ramen from October to December 2019 and the Keisuke Miso Ramen from January to March 2020.
