Ramen at Men-Ichi

Was at Serangoon Nex with my boy looking for a place to dine at, and we wandered into the Japanese food area. He felt like having ramen so we went into the Men-ichi for the first time!

I guess we were pretty lucky that day, our lunch at Ice Edge Cafe was good, and so was our dinner at Men-ichi! :D

It was a little shop that can sit about 20 customers..

Ordered a ramen each and I also had a hot green tea, $1 and refillable hehe :)

The ramen noodles are the same for both ramen, very well cooked and yummy! I would say this is one of the best ramen I had in Singapore, along with Ippudo and a few other places which I can't remember at the moment.

Both ramen came with lava egg (half), beansprouts, bamboo shoots, seaweed as well as cha shu (we chose 2 pcs, 5 pcs option is available too). The lava egg was good, how can lava eggs be bad anyway? And the beansprouts, this is the first time I don't mind having beansprouts in my food!! The beansprouts did not have the tiny leaves, and was cooked till soft. I really hate beansprouts in my noodles usually, they always taste so raw and out of the place, but Men-ichi's was good! I have not much comments for the bamboo shoots and seaweed, normal I guess.. The cha shu have an even distribution of lean meat and fats in rings (opps I hope you understand what I mean, if not zoom into the cha shu and you'll know), the meat is good but I didn't like the fatty parts so I ended up giving BF both slices.

Wafu Shoyu Ramen ($11.90)

Bf's ramen! It was served in clear soup - boiled from seafood and chicken. The soup was good, sweet and very refreshing! This is the kind of soup that will make one feel refreshed and awake after drinking it.. :)

Sapporo Miso Ramen ($14.50)

This was mine.. The soup base is a milky pork broth, which was really rich and yummy too! It was a little salty, but a lot less salty that Ippudo's. This is the kind of soup that you will feel contented, warm and fuzzy after drinking :) Opps do you understand what I mean? I mean the type of food that will make you will feel really warm and full to go into a food coma..

In addition to the stuffs listed above, my ramen also came with corn and cabbage. Corn was okayish, and I don't like the cabbage because it wasn't soft.

Our total bill was $32, pretty decent price! :)

Both ramen's soup base are yummy in different ways, I don't know which one I like better! I guess this depends on my mood, if I want to feel refreshed or contented.

Will definitely head back to Men-ichi! :D
