Menya Kokoro @ 100 AM Mall - Launches ‘Super’ Ebi Mazesoba and Ramen this National Day


In conjunction with the National Day celebrations, Menya Kokoro introduces two new creations that pay homage to one of our local favourites - Prawn Noodles!

'Super' Ebi Ramen 4/5

The 'Super' Ebi Ramen ($15.80/$17.80) comes with a pure prawn broth blended with rich tonkotsu soup and homemade chilli paste for a touch of spice. The portion is generous, even for a regular bowl. Mine came brimming with de-shelled prawns, aburi chashu slices and crunchy Sakura Ebi Crumbs.


The ebi broth is done by simmering for over four hours before blending it with the Japanese - style pork bone broth. Glossy with an appetising red hue, the soup exuded a rich umami essence that spoke an excellent depth of prawn flavour. As the base is Menya's tonkotsu soup, this 'Super' Ebi soup boasts a rich consistency and unctuous mouthfeel, elevating it from a regular prawn noodles soup.

‘Super’ Ebi Mazesoba 4/5

'Super' Ebi Mazesoba ($15.80/$17.80) is a broth-less ramen variant that delivers a tantalising combination of flavours and textures. Each bowl is topped with two juicy de-shelled prawns, chopped fresh garlic, shredded seaweed, beansprouts, spring onions and an oozy onsen egg, brought together by a punchy rich ebi sauce.


Resembling a bowl of chilli prawn noodles, there was a heightened sense of satisfaction from the chewy thin and flat noodles handmade in-store daily from Japanese wholewheat. The thick-cut cubed aburi chashu gave a substantial meaty texture to the noodles, and the experience that the crunchy sakura ebi crumbs brought to the noodles was reminiscent of that of pork lard. On the table, you will find a housemade kombu vinegar, and drops of it into your noodles provide an uplifting tang that adds a delightful twist to the flavour profile.

Available in the month of August only. From 7 to 20 Aug 2023, enjoy 50% off on the second order of either ‘Super’ Ebi Mazesoba or ‘Super’ Ebi Ramen, exclusively available for dine-in at Suntec (#03-313), 100AM (#02-10), and Plaza Singapura (#B2-53).
