The Place Uni Ramen sounds like an awesome idea. Located within Picnic Food Park in Wisma Atria, the two weeks old Seizan Uni Ramen is a collaboration between Picnic Food Park and Seizan Tokyo, a two Michelin-starred restaurant in Japan. I was excited to check it out, as this is quite possibly the first concept in Singapore to serve Uni Ramen. The space at Picnic is huge, and the Seizan booth occupies a corner of Picnic where there are other food vendors. Ordering is fairly straightforward as you order via a machine, be seated, and collect your ramen once it is ready via a buzzer.
