Menya Musashi - Isetan One Utama

Anne strongly recommended Menya Musashi in Isetan One Utama for their Tokyo broth. I also mentioned to PY that this ramen shop is a must-try since she always jalan-jalan at One Utama. Both of them has very good reviews on the ramen. 

Since the Japanese chef is still around, Boy boy and I decided to try this shop out. We reach the Eat Paradise at One Utama around 11.40am and the Q was so long until the baby section. We waited around 20 minutes before we are ushered into the shop. 

We were seated at the side where both of us are facing the wall. The chair was fixed to the ground and is not adjustable, it was a bit far from the table. There is no leg rest for you. So the whole time, I was feeling very uncomfortable seating and eating. I hope they can improve on this. 

The menu is very simple, and you must read from the right ya. First, you choose soup base: White (original), Black (special oil of fried shallots and garlic) and Red (chilli oil). Secondly, you choose the amount of ingredients that you want: egg, 1 / 2 / 3 pieces of chashu. Thirdly, you choose the broth or tsukemen (thicker broth in another bowl). 

Kuro (black) Ajitama Ramen
As I am a garlic lover, I went with the black ramen. The chashu was indeed a big piece and it was very tender. The broth was thick but not so strong garlic taste. The ramen was thick and bouncy.

Aka (red) Musashi Ramen
Boyboy went with the red.

Gyoza was just so-so, nothing to shout about.

Both of us didn't finish the soup. >.<" we felt so bad because all other people took up their bowl and finish till the last drop! But we just couldn't bring ourselves to finish the soup wor. Anne said that we are not used to Tokyo broth perhaps.

The bill came up to RM71 for 2 person (2 bowls of ramen, 1 gyoza and 2 green tea). It was indeed a steep price to pay for a ramen. Despite the price, you may want to give this a try as it is Tokyo broth-based ramen made by a chef flown in from Tokyo.
