Very Special Japanese Ramen

My friend introduced me to this restaurant, for the very special ramen that they used.  There are quite a number of branches of this restaurant in Singapore, but different branches have a different speciality.  For example, this one in Ion Orchard has the H-share ramen.  

The deco of the place is quite traditional Japanese, but the facility is modern.  You place your orders with an ipad.  Once your order is placed, a bill will be generated so you can preview your bill.

In terms of taste, it is quite authentic Japanese.  This is their good point and bad point.  Authentic Japanese ramen tend to be too salty for Singaporeans' taste.  This is one aspect that I don't like it.  Tearing me apart is their noodle, which is good.  It is chewy, crunchy, just what I like.  If they can make some adjustments to their soup base to make it less salty, it would be perfect.

Horrible place to have ramen, average price of about 15 per bowl not worth it. Noodles came uncooked, pork was hard and tasteless, soup was bland. Eggs came half cooked and half molten.

Very disappointing and doesn't live up to expectations

Went there with my s.o to have dinner on a monday night. I had heard good reviews from friends about the place and with my partner and I being big ramen lovers, it made sense to try it out.

It was relatively empty, we were seated quickly and given menus and ordered. I got their white tora duck ramen and my partner got the more traditional chashu ramen. The restaurant had an ipad mounted on the table for ordering, the app was easy to use and ordering went smoothly enough. Plus points for good interactive design.

FOOD

We waited a reasonable amount of time for the food, though I was thoroughly disappointed with it when it got there. Ramen was too chewy, and the soup was loaded with salt and was very oily, without any of the nice creaminess that ramen soup should have. The meat had some nice smoky flavour, but was incredible dry and didn't have any of the great "melt in your mouth" characteristics that good chashu should have. Very disappointing.

VALUE

We paid a little under $50 for the two of us, equalling about $25 each. For the food and service recieved, I felt that it wasn't worth it. 

AMBIENCE

I suppose Menya scores in this department. We were seated in a nice booth. Seats were comfortable. We had dinner a little late on a Monday night so it was quiet. The servers didn't speak native Japanese to you through the ancient art of Shodō, but it was good enough.

SERVICE

While we were seated and given menus quickly enough, service during the meal was poor. We requested for two glasses of iced water in the middle of the meal and only got them when we were about done. At least they apologised for that, though. 

One of the servers there also had a knack for staring at me and my girlfriend, which made us both very, very uncomfortable and want to get out of there quick. 


OVERALL
Menya Musashi didn't live up to my expectations and was very disappointing. I could forgive bad service if the food was good, but unfortunately it wasn't. Go somewhere else.
