Takahashi Kenichi, CEO of Japan Foods Holding, had worked to bring Afuri to Singapore since 2012. His vision was finally realised seven years later, with the launch of Afuri ramen + dumplings in Singapore.
Afuri stands out from its competitors by making their signature ramen with yuzu, a small citrus fruit native to Asia. They are also crafted authentically to Japan’s specification, producing ramen that is thin, light and refined. Afuri ramen are soaked in broth boiled with ingredients such as chicken, kombu and dried bonito. A dash of yuzu in the broth delivers a refreshing twist to the taste of the dish entirely. The pork slices that top the ramen are cooked over lava stones locally, as compared to being grilled with charcoal in Japan, yet the depth of the flavour is still preserved. For a satisfying side dish, opt for Afuri’s dumplings that comes in a layer of crispy thin crust covering the bottom.
Afuri not only aims to share their passion for the process of producing quality and well-made food, but also to do their part in contributing to the community and so much more.
