Away from the hustle and bustle of downtown, is this little shop opened by a ramen master from Japan. Hidden it may be, it never fails to draw so many Japanese expartraits who come here to have a taste of home. And true enough, my first impression of this restaurant was a typical one that can easily be seen in a Japanese drama.
I was with a friend who was also a ramen fan after his first visit to Marutama. Having read so many reviews about it, this was my first time here. In fact, we chanced upon Menya Shinchan after we found Sapporo Ramen Miharu was closed.
Both of us ordered this Soy Sauce Pork Bone Ramen ($13.00). The noodles were springy, and the serving generous. I preferred my broth to have a stronger taste however.
メンマ - $5.00
I always love bamboo shoots! Glad that they have this dish here as it's not common among ramenyas.
チャシュ - $5.00
Though the portion was pretty small for the price we were paying for, the chashu was fantastic and ready to melt in month.
In Menya where Ramen is considered an 'art form', one can be assured of their constant commitment to quality and innovation. If you are looking for just a simple yet authentic place where you can tuck into a wide variety of ramen, Menya might just be the place for you. I will definitely be back again for their famed Madame Shinjiro and pancake-like fried gyozas.
