Numerous ex-restaurant chefs have left their previous workplaces to start their own businesses.

Simon Song, a former chef at a ramen chain, is one of them.

He possesses close to 10 years of experience in cooking Japanese ramen and has served more than 400,000 bowls of ramen.

Hokkaido Ramen Santouka, where Song worked previously, was founded in Japan in the 1980s and is said to be one of the pioneers of authentic ramen in Singapore since 2008.

Bringing authentic ramen to the heartlands

Hoping to bring authentic Japanese ramen to the heartlands, the chef recently opened Ramen King at a coffeeshop in Tampines.
