Menbaka Fire Ramen
Menbaka Fire Ramen was opened in Kyoto in 1984 by ramen master Masamichi Miyazawa, who spent his youth learning the intricacies of ramen making in kitchens across Japan. He later introduced Menbaka’s signature ‘fire ramen’ to the menu, becoming the first-ever ramen-ya in the world to do so. The Singapore outpost of Menbaka Fire Ramen, opened in November 2020 at Cineleisure Orchard, marks the brand’s first and only international outlet.
Menbaka Fire Ramen is widely beloved in its native Kyoto, and is famous for both its theatrical serving methods — where chefs ignite the oil to create tall, dramatic flames, and pour it over their signature broth covered with green onions, for a rich imitable taste — as well as its long, snaking queues.
Today, Menbaka Fire Ramen is helmed by master, Masamichi Miyazawa and son, Shin Miyazawa. Together, they bring a youthful energy and fiery passion to the family business.
