:: One of the best ramen in town - and we call it "Samurai Ramen" ::
1 Utama shopping centre has recently become our weekend hangout place. Currently we keen to try out some of the Japanese Restaurant at the Eat Paradise, Isetan. We had tried Gantetsu (Hokkaido Ramen) so far. Today we going to taste the ramen at Menya musashi no matter what - reason why is there's always long queue at this restaurant! Long queue means, the food is good and people don't mind to wait.
Browsing on the menu while wait to be seat. First you need to choose which ramen you want: Normal Ramen, Ajitama Ramen (with egg), Chashu Ramen (with barbecued pork). Then select which type of soup base to go with the ramen of your choice : Shiro (WHITE) | Onion Flavour Oil; Kuro (BLACK) | Special Oil Combined of Fried Shallots and Garlic Flavour Oil or Aka (RED) | Chilli Flavour Oil. They also have Musashi Special Set which is available from Monday to Friday.
Samurai posters everywhere inside the restaurant! Guess we're lucky, it wasn't take that long to get our seats. The table turnover is pretty quick. Mind you this is a self-service restaurant, therefore please place your order at the cashier counter and pay first before you are seated.
An interesting fact bout the restaurant: the kitchen staffs will constantly shout out some Japanese word in a samurai style when they done cooking one bowl of ramen (pull out the noodles from boiling water, drained it and place on a bowl).
Husband go for Aka Chashu Ramen as he love spicy flavor - it comes with 2 slices of chashu and a semi hard boiled egg. The spiciness is mild and the soup base is not as thick as my Kuro chashu ramen. However it is very tasty.
Mine is Kuro chashu ramen - the broth is so thick and creamy and I immediately fall in love with the unique aroma that created from the combination of Fried Shallots and Garlic Flavour Oil. I don't normally eat yellow noodle but this noodle doesn't have the usual yellow noodle taste that I dislike.
