Right after eating pizza, pasta and a big plate of salad, Camemberu, Southernoise and I went on to have ramen. This was to be the ‘pig-out’ thingy. Eaten from shop to shop. But we realise we do not have the big appetite as we think we had. LOL…
We walked round the corner to Menya Shinchan. This little Japanase eatery is known for its ‘home-made’ noodles. This shop is kinda hidden, so you might take some time to find it. Look for this sign.
The moment you are seated, they serve you a nice warm towel. How nice ya!
If you read about them at this site, you can see that they really take ramen making very seriously and considers it an art.
This is what I had. The Miso Pork Mayu.
Whilst many other ramen has very salty broth, this one is different though. It’s not salty at all. (Hmm we wonder if salt’s missing on purpose or accidently, we shall try again next time to see if it’s meant to be like that. ) It has a rich broth though.
The hand made noodles.
Camemberu had the Salty Pork Mayu. It looks almost similar to the one I have, except that when you stir it, it’s not so dark.
Southernoise had the Salty Pork with the ‘extra oil’ option. When asked what’s the oil, we were told lard oil. You should have seen the glee on Southernoise’s face when he said yes!
The ‘pig-out’ ended here. LOL. Stomach’s not flexible, young and elastic as before for me.
