Luckily we were at Menya Musashi at 5-plus. When we left at 6-plus, the queue was insane.
Credited as one of the shops in Tokyo to start ramen craze, the decor of the shop is definitely more classy and less rustic than the other small ramen shops in Singapore.
There are three different kinds of broth for ramen: white (pork bones and fish paste); black (fried garlic and onion); and red (chili oil and bean paste).
The difference between black tsukemen (dipping ramen, $14.90) and black kakuni ($14.90, pictured below) is the sauce for dipping ramen is more concentrate and comes with chashu but the soup ramen comes with kakuni (stewed pork). For the tsukemen, you can add up to 5 times the portion of noodles for free.
Since the black ones are the specialities of the shop, we had both of them. To tell the truth, the meal didn’t make an impact on us and among the four ramen places in this series, Menya Musashi is most forgettable. The food was pleasant and passable but not astounding to worth queueing up. We spent $41 for two. New branch at Ion Orchard.
