Who doesn’t love a good retro-themed birthday party? Popular ramen chain Ippudo sure does. For its 34th birthday next Wednesday (Oct 16), the chain turns back the clock to the 80s, bringing back its first-ever ramen dish that was created in 1985.

For one day only, the Tokunou Tonkotsu Ramen (S$9.90) will make its comeback at four outlets – Mohamed Sultan, Tanjong Pagar, The Star Vista and Westgate. But there’s a limited supply: Each outlet will serve 340 bowls of this ramen, which has an extra rich broth. Once all 340 bowls are sold out, the fan favourite Shiromaru Basic will be served instead.

Good news for those who frequent Ippudo’s Mandarin Gallery or Shaw Centre outlets. Both have a 1-for-1 ramen promotion from Oct 16 to Oct 18 (the higher value of the two dishes will be charged). Popular side dishes such as the four-piece takoyaki and three-piece chicken karaage will also be available at S$3 each.

And what’s a party without a goodie bag? In Ippudo’s case, it’s a super-kawaii ramen phone grip that’ll be given out with every bowl of ramen ordered at all outlets on Oct 16.

Available in red or white, the phone grip is a mini version of a ramen bowl; red representing the signature dish Akamaru Shinaji while white replicating Shiromaru Motoaji.

Lastly, from Oct 16 to Oct 20, each order of a ramen dish at all Ippudo outlets (except for Marina Bay Sands) entitles diners to a voucher with a 50 per cent discount on Ippudo’s gyoza. Party on.
