Tasty ramen for the itchy mouth at Men-Ichi

Do you know that the soup broth in Men-ichi is brewed for over 14 hours to give its thick flavour? They use 100% home-made noodles created with their very own special recipe. In Men-Ichi, the storefront mimics a typical ramen outlet in Japan, and there are no frills in their ambience within. You won't usually spot a long queue, but there may be undesirable seats such as the one next to the bar counter. Find out how to get extra noodles for free at the end of the post.
