Menbaka ‘Fire’ Ramen
Hailed from Kyoto, Japan, Menbaka Ramen is a first-of-its-kind ramen place where they literally set your bowl on fire before you dig in.
They are expanding their ramen business worldwide recently and will be opening their first outlet in Singapore on 24 November (Tue). It will be located in Orchard Cineleisure level 5 and opens from 12pm to 9pm daily.
According to Menbaka, their ramen is not just all for show – it is made with ingredients including a 220-year old recipe blend of shoyu and stewed with katsuobushi and sababushi (dried smoked tuna and mackerel) to create a smokey, umami-packed broth.
But of course, their bestselling signature dish is still their Fire Ramen that continues to impress ramen fans around the world.
Here are some photos of the fiery bowls in action.
Menbaka has also provided some science behind the flaming bowl, which supposedly brings out the flavour of the green onions.
Besides their signature fire ramen, side dishes such as Karaage (fried chicken), Japanese Fried Rice and Gyoza (pan-fried dumplings) will be available as well.
Now you know – all that’s left is head over to Menbaka Ramen in Orchard Rd to try it for yourself.
