Menya Shinchan Japanese Noodle Restaurant

We saw a review on Menya Shinchan Japanese Noodle Restaurant from and decided to give it a try. Menya Shinchan is located at Riverside View(Robertson Quay), directly behind a restaurant selling Japanese style Taiwan food, which is pretty deserted. This explains why we only managed to find the place on our second attempt -_-'''

Pic above is the counter seats at Menya Shinchan. The restaurant is pretty small and cozy inside and some tables outside as well.

Pork soup base(heavy) noodles. At Menya Shinchan, you can request for your noodles to be soft /hard. And the noodles are actually hand-made!

Seafood soup base, there's ikan bilis on the top. Although I chose the heavy flavoured seafood soup, it still tastes pretty light to me o.O ..something like ikan bilis flavoured soup.

This is the famous Shinjiro Ramen, costs $13. Comes with lotsa cabbage(stir fried), bean sprouts, some meat and noodles(thicker than those 2 above). The soup for Shinjiro is very thick, unlike those mentioned above. Another thing to note, Shinjiro comes in a large portion, not many guys can finish it.

There's also Madame Shinjiro whereby the portion of noodles is halved, but the rest of the ingredients remains the same. No, you will not be short changed although price is still at $13, Menya Shinchan gives you the choice of apple/grape vinegar or ice cream in place of the 1/2 noodles portion.

Gyoza at $5. The rice paper is yummy~ adds flavour to the gyoza itself.

Firm fillings inside the gyoza.

Currently, I have been to Menya Shinchan for about 2 times and still discovering new favourites from their menu~
