Good news for ramen lovers! Menya Musashi, one of Japan’s most highly rated ramen shop, has arrived to Singapore. Menya Musashi is featured on Japanese television frequently for its famous ramen, and its most popular branch at Shinjuku keeps packing in the crowd. (My verdict of the Menya Musashi main outlet at Shinjuku Tokyo here.)
We do not have to buy an air ticket to try this, and the newly opened shop at Raffles City has also attracted many ramen fans to queue for a coveted bowl.
The shop’s name comes from famous Edo-era swordsman Miyamoto Musashi, and operates on the five key ramen principles of ‘chi, sui, hi, kaze and ku’ to create an ideal bowl of Japanese ramen.
There are three types of ramen soup base to choose from: the white (original), black (black sauce) and red (spicy). The black kakuni ramen ($14.90) is ‘oishii’, with a thick and salty broth cooked from a mixture of pork bones and dried saury fish.
