Menya Noodle Bar has a ramen selection that a few other joints around this town would do well to emulate. I get that everyone has their special dishes, but Menya seems to offer most of their ramen broth bases (tonkotsu, shoyu, miso, salt) combined with their different toppings and additions. It’s much more fun!
I ordered the black garlic ramen with a tonkotsu base. It came with some nice garnishes that added no cost to an already reasonable priced bowl – nori, tamago, bamboo shoots and those cute little pink and white fish cake slices. So far, price wise, this is one of the best ranges of garnish I’ve seen!
The tonkotsu broth is the type which leaves a bit of a porky film on your lips, but it’s not thick. The noodles are fantastic – chewy and a little thick, enough so that by the end of your meal they have not turned soft and unpleasant. The serve is generous and enjoyable.
The black garlic is a great accompaniment and I highly recommend this popular ramen shop!
