Ever since I tried Menya Musashi in Singapore, I couldn't wait to try the ramen in its KL outlets. Currently Menya Musashi Malaysia has two outlets - one in Eat Paradise at 1U and another at Jalan P.Ramlee. When the Jalan P.Ramlee outlet first opened, it served ramen with chicken broth only, but when I visited last week, I discovered that they now serve ramen with pork broth too.
Twin Towers... just 2 minutes walk away
Menya Musashi on Jalan P.Ramlee is just 2 mins walk away from Petronas Twin Towers. I observed that this outlet is frequented by quite many Japanese. The menu here is a little different from Singapore's, with four types of broth available (original tonkotsu, fish and pork blend, spicy and miso) as well as tsukemen. No black tsukemen or broth in sight. Since I did not get to try
I went for the Kanzan Ramen (RM20), which came with 2 pieces of roasted pork, 1 ajitama (flavoured egg), spring onion and black fungus. The ramen is slightly different here, thinner but still springy with a nice bite. The egg was also slightly overcooked for my liking but very similar to Singapore's, so I deduced that perhaps this is their style for the eggs. Pork was decent (a bit more fat would be better :P), but what I really love was the tonkotsu broth. The broth which has been boiled for many hours was rich and flavorful, I drank it all to the last drop.
A pretty good bowl of ramen
Nice texture to the noodles
Ajitama (flavoured egg) was pretty decent too but Marutama's egg is still the best!
We also tried the prawn gyoza (RM10) which was pretty good - lots of prawn chunks and juicy.
The matcha milk drink (RM5) was a good thirst quencher. The matcha wasn't too overpowering which worked for me.
