Menya Shinchan

Brought my dad to Menya Shinchan for his birthday dinner. It is a small, unpretentious, hole-in-the-wall type of ramen shop where the service is efficient and friendly and the focus is on the artisan noodles. And it's really good noodles. The shop owner used to be a head honcho at some Japanese firm who really loved his noodles. So much so, he gave it all up to set up this shop and make the noodles on premise himself.

There's nothing much on the menu except for ramen. There're several flavours but just 2 soup bases - one pork bone broth, the other, seafood broth. And different type of noodles to go with the different soup bases. There's a smoother, thinner noodles for the pork bone broth; a thicker, chewier one for the seafood broth. Yum ;)

Do give it a try if you're ever in the neighbourhood or am just in the mood for some authentic ラメン :)
