For thrill-seekers and adventurous diners, the famous Menbaka Fire Ramen from Kyoto is coming to our sunny shores in early April 2020. This exciting Japanese concept features ramen that bursts into majestic flames right in front of your eyes, and it’s a far cry from the usual Japanese ramen places in Singapore.

The breath-taking fires are not only for show. It actually serves an important purpose. Each bowl of ramen is topped with heaping portions of Kyoto-grown green onions, and when swiftly burned in scalding oil, the burst of fiery heat to the green onions give the broth a deeper and charred flavour.

Fearless diners are required to wear the given protective leg covers and apron to protect them from the flaming hot oil. Do watch your eyebrows though.

For the safety of diners, the Kyoto outlet requires customers to surrender their phones prior to the pouring of oil. The phones are then placed on cute selfie sticks behind the counter. To cater to customers’ itch for photos, staff members would then help to snap photos or videos of customers reacting to the magnificent fires. Likewise, I would expect the Singapore outlet to follow suit with this procedure.

Served with a mountain of green onions, the ramen is topped with chashu slices and additional toppings such as Japanese soft boiled eggs.
