Menya Musashi

Menya Musashi is a ramen restaurant that originally opened its first joint in 1998 in Shinjuku, Near the Seibu Shinjuku Station. Due to its popularity, it quickly expanded as a franchise, opening stores mostly near the stations of the JR Yamanote Line.

The Recipe For Success

Retina menya ramen
At this ramen shop, you get the perfect balance of taste in a soup made from chicken and pork bones, as well as bonito dried sardines. This is a rare combination of broth that really brings the taste to another level. The scent of the soup is enough to make you come back.


You order from a ticket machine near the entrance. There is an English option (also many other languages are available) so ordering shouldn't be a problem.

The Classic Menya Musashi Ramen

The most popular item is the Musashi Ramen at ¥1,150. It comes with the signature chicken-pork-bonito broth and is loaded with some of the thickest pieces of pork belly fat you'll ever see in a bowl of ramen. It also comes with the standard pieces of bamboo shoots, green onions, and a whole half-boiled egg. For ¥1,450 you can have the same dish but with an extra two pieces of pork. For ¥900 you can have one with just one piece (which is still pretty filling) and without the egg.

You can buy more toppings at a little extra cost. Beer is also available.


Aside from the ramen bowl with soup, you can have your dish with tsukemen (dipping noodles) which comes with an even richer and tastier dipping sauce made from the same broth but with a slightly sweeter taste. This is also a very popular option.

Menya Musashi Ramen Shinjuku: Try It Out!

Musashi Ramen has its flagship restaurant in Shinjuku, which is still the most popular. It is at a 10-minute walk from the JR Shinjuku Station's East Exit, or very near the Seibu Shinjuku Station (near Kabukicho). Go there for the original!
