not sure if something's up with my tastebuds lately but i can't decide if i enjoyed the mazesoba today 🤨 found the flavour abit lacking although i liked that the texture of the soba was pretty bouncy & chewy! i had the tomyum soba which was pretty good on the first few bites but then kinda got boring after abit. the garlic mazesoba my friend had was not bad though. love the option to customise your bowl to have lesser noodles & more veges - good option for chive lovers.

the okonomiyaki though was rly 😍 w the sweetness of the charred cabbage. drinks during happy hour were all $6 but the yakut so chu was soooo watered down & mid. the yuzu highball was a good one though, definitely recommend.

anyway final rating for me is 6.5/10!!! good service though 💗

Ordered the Chashu Ramen ($13.90) and the broth is different from other pork ramen i tried before.

Usually is pork bone broth but this is entirely different. The noodle used is also like different from usual ramen.

Soba noodles were al dente, smokey, and flavourful BUT very salty, likely from the minced meat so I recommend not mixing it all in.

The ramen soup noodles were more bearable in terms of salt but lost out to the texture of noodles. Chashu was smokey and tender.

Choosing the 'less soba/ramen' option gave beansprouts or cabbage instead! :)

If you have high salt tolerance, go for the soba. Perfect chewiness. Ramen was kinda soggy.

Been coming here for a few years already, and the mazesoba taste is still good! Lots of ingredients, chewy textured noodles, with savory umami sauce! Towards the end of your meal, you can ask for a spoonful of rice to mix with the remaining sauce!

I prefer the Original mazesoba as this Mala one is tooo spicy to enjoy!!

My rating: 2.5/5 (original would be 5 though)

Located alongside other Japanese eateries serving tendon, ramen and unagi dons in Suntec, Menya Kokoro was expectedly filled on a Friday night. Thankfully, we didn’t have to wait very long to get our seats.

Despite being famed for their mazesoba, they offer way more than just their famous dry ramen, including soup based ramen, bento sets and katsu dons. It’s nice that they cater to smaller eaters who can request for less soba or rice, as well as big eater who can get large sized portions for the mains.

Their soft shell crab mazesoba is a summer special item, with a thick and spicy chili crab sauce coating their chewy thick noodles. Other than a nicely battered and fried soft shell crab on the side, one also gets an onsen egg (topped with fish roe), crab meat, seaweed and tempura bits to go with their noodles. Was attracted to this dish as one could top up a dollar for two pieces of deep-fried mantou that can be dipped with the rich chili crab sauce in this bowl.

If you’re famished, ordering the large portion for their mains will be sure to leave you satisfied (although food coma might hit you shortly after too). Their gyozas were nice as well. The partner ordered a karaage don, which was delicious too as the chicken pieces were fried really well.

Also as my mask snapped, one of the waitresses was really kind to offer me a new mask and service was great in general too. A highly recommended place if you’re in the Suntec area!

Mazesoba is springy. Love the dipping soup.
The chashu is too dry.
