The Ramen Diaries: Menya Noodle Bar revisited

It’s now time for round two, the review of the best reviews.
For my second visit to Menya Noodle Bar, I went for the black garlic tonkotsu. It’s good stuff.
I’ve included a review table for this round of reviews, so you know exactly what you’re getting yourself into at each establishment.

Broth: Good pork flavour with a mid thickness broth.

Price: $11.90?

Noodles: Average sized serve. Curly and cooked well.

Meat: Tasty chashu, but nothing exciting.

Toppings:  Tamago – one half egg, softboiled and tasty. Seaweed, scallions and the pink and white swirly things.

Setting: Little restaurant off of Market St that gets packed pretty early in the lunch hour.

Overall thoughts: Menya Noodle Bar is highly rated around the blogosphere and it gets really busy. It’s a decent bowl that doesn’t get tiresome until you get near the bottom.
