There's always a line at Musashi and I just had to check it out.
If you are lost then hit the top left button... that'll give you the house recommended special. But never ever have I seen 1,000yen Ramen! Just had to see what this beast was... 1,000 yen ($11) bye bye. I think actual cost to make a bowl of ramen without all the toppings is 100-200yen. Some of these shops can make an excess of USD1 million per store.
All counter seating and a lively ramen staff. I sat next to a nice couple and the dude kept coughing to clear his throat... dude... enough already. Its a hit and miss who you sit next to.
And there it is! The Ramen dude will ask if you want "Asari" (Light soup base) "Kotteri" (A more oily flavorful soup base) and what type of noodes "Futsuu" Regular or "Futo-men" Fat noodles. I went for the Kotteri Futo-Men noodles!
Very tasty ramen and so filling. Its not ranked very highly on Tabelof at 3.20 points but worth a try if you are in the area. I probably will never go back because consuming such heavy ramen just kills me in the calorie department. The meat was so melty tender, noodles thick and chewy. There' garlic in a tiny container for taste.
