Menzo Butao


Open for the first time in Singapore, Menzo Butao's founder, Mr Yasuhiko Kurata is a well-known ramen producer in Japan and has more than 23 outlets in Japan and overseas: China, Korea, US, Thailand, Vietnam and Taiwan. Established in 1936, Menzo Butao specializes in Hakata Tonkotsu Ramen which offers a range of more than 20 ramen dishes. There are three different and delicious soups to choose from - Butaõ (White), Kuroõ (Black) and Akaõ (Red). The Butaõ soup base consists of pork broth made from boiling pork bones and sinews for over 14 hours to extract all the natural flavour of the bones. This soup base is flown straight to Singapore and prepared by simmering for hours to obtain the right consistency and flavour. The pork bones used come from the Kagoshima prefecture, well-known for its quality pork meat. The Kuroõ broth is an emulsion of burnt white onions and vegetable oil thus giving it that iconic dark colour. The Akaõ broth is slightly spicy as it contains chilli oil and gets its red hue from the Gochujang (Korean Miso) and Doubanjiang (Chinese Miso).
