Tokyo

Menya Musashi is one of those ramen joints that the mega fans of the Japanese dish rave about. Their secret is in their amazing broth and the generous topping of pork belly meat! Find out more about this iconic Tokyo restaurant.

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.
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.

Ramen With THICK Pork Chunks!

Menya Musashi ramen looks and tastes so amazing in large part because of the huge pieces of chashu pork that you get as a topping. These really put to shame the flimsy slices of chashu you get in a standard ramen bowl.

Addictive Broth

The other reason why Menya Musashi's ramen is so good is that the broth is made from an awesome and rare combination of chicken, pork and bonito. The result is a deeply savoury rich broth that is quite addictive.

The most popular item is the Musashi Ramen at ¥1,150. Aside from the meat, it has 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.

Tsukemen

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.
