Men-Tei Ramen

We chanced upon the shop name, Men-Tei Ramen while poking around for La Mian recipes.
Since Men-Tei doesn't open on weekends, we have to visit them on weekdays.

Opening Hours:
Mon-Fri: 11am - 3pm, 6pm - 10pm
(Closed on Sat, Sun & PH)

61 Robinson Road
#01-01 Robinson Centre

Tel: 6438 4140

The posters in the shop says that noodles are freshly made daily and soup broth brewed for 9hours with fresh ingredients from Japan.

Overview of menu. There's just about shoyu, miso, tonkatsu(spicy/non spicy), shio flavour soups to choose from.

Oh o.O they have ramen pepper here.

Heard that they used to close in the evening, now they are opened till 10pm.

K's miso ramen. The noodles at Men-Tei are pretty thin and soft(we didn't request for soft/hard noodles) by default so do request for harder noodles if you don't want them to get too soft halfway. The miso soup is pretty yummy but I think miso broth from Ken Ramen tastes better.

Tonkatsu ramen came in milky broth. Adding a small amount of ramen pepper to this bowl of noodles, makes it taste even better.

In less than half an hour, we were done and K couldn't stop drinking the soup -_-'
But we were not thirsty at all after this meal, so I guess MSG (if any) was kept to the minimum.

Personally, the ramen at Men-Tei were not bad for $13 nett. Each bowl came with lots of ingredients like char siew, bamboo shoots and half an its pretty worth it. However, both Ken Ramen and Men-Tei have the same problem that is, the bowl of noodles started turning cold when we were halfway through. This is weird, cos it never happened when we were in Marutama. Another reason on why I love Marutama, cos the soup would be piping hot even after I finished them.
