Menya Musashi Has Opened in Singapore
Menya Musashi from Japan just opened a shop at Raffles City Shopping Centre yesterday (252 North Bridge Road #01-16), and there was already a huge line forming when they opened today. They were only running a limited menu for now, so that tsukemen that I saw in their advertisement was not available yet. I thus went for a bowl of their white chashu ramen just to see what their most basic broth was like before complicating it with the red or black versions.
I'm so glad that I went with the white one in the end. Why? It was all about that broth. It was impressively rich and thick, but more importantly, it was smoky too, giving it a depth that distinguished it from the rest (it reminded me a bit of the now defunct Kusabi's uobushi with its ground fish powder, actually). And of course, tasty fatty chashu and quality noodles never hurt either. I'll definitely have to come back for the other versions, especially when they finally get a full menu on board.
