Menya Musashi Ramen Burger! – “East Meets West!”

Yes, the brilliant imagination of the food-obsessed japanese has led to a new unique food item. The “Menya Musashi Ramen Burger” is a seasoned, lightly charred ramen patty, topped with stewed barbecue pork (chashu), and mayo on a burger bun. Yum yum yum!

According to AHT: “This unique “east meets west” sandwich will be available for a limited time from May 20 to mid-June for ¥‎634 (about $6.40) and comes with a side of bonito-flavored soup.

The name Musashi refers to the legendary samurai but is also shorthand for the number 634, hence the price. You can also get an extra ramen patty with soup for ¥‎100.”

  3. This dish is japanese ramen with pork and some vegetables. The meat is very soft and goes well with the soup base and ramen. The ramen is very special because it is hand made and the soup base is cooked personally by the chef. The ramen also consist of an half boiled egg and this dish is spicy. This dish will be the most suitable for people who love to eat meat and can take the spicyness.The restaurant is very convenient too. It is located at the basement and the nearest mrt station will be Bishan. The waiting time will not be too long, and the service there is really good. They will also have set meals and those who love to eat ramen, you should give it a try! The environment there is very clean and the service crew are also very friendly and are very patient in taking your orders.
