Menya Japanese Noodle

Menya Japanese Noodle

Rice Cake
I didn't really care too much for these.

Maybe I'm just not too big of a fan of rice cakes...

These were awesome!

Soup was different. Not as rich as Kintaro. Still decent though.

A closer-shot
Notice that Menya uses very thin noodles. Personally, I prefer the ones at Kintaro.

Side of plain ramen
Menya allows you to order a side order of plain ramen. A good option that I took advantage of.

Overall Thoughts:
Decent effort. However, I do prefer the other ones i.e. Kintaro, Benkei and Motomachi Shokudo.

Would I recommend?
If you are a big fan of ramen, it's worth giving this place a shot.

Interesting Note:

They are closed on Sundays!

Those rice things in your photos are rice balls, not rice cakes. Rice cake (mochi in Japan) is made of pounded rice - you can't see the individual rice grains at all. Rice balls are formed out of cooked rice.

This place is near my work so I go there frequently. There are thicker noodles in the miso ramen - both the noodles and the soup are better in the miso ramen IMO and recommended.
