Our Story

During a trip to Japan 10 years ago, our Founding Co-Partner, Chef Jason Lim, fell in love with ramen – a dish so basic but yet so comforting and with a taste that’s satisfyingly good! His love turned into an obsession and he started a year-long journey of discovery and adventure as he went around Japan sampling various types of ramen and studying at the famous Yamato Noodle School.

His quest led him to truly appreciate scientific cooking – a method of cooking that would allow for every bowl of noodles he creates to taste, smell and be consistently delicious.

Together with his father and a group of like-minded Japanese partners, Chef Jason established Men-Tei in 2007 to introduce this appetizing, deeply satisfying bowl of noodles to Singapore

This year, Men-Tei is pleased to incorporate some of the latest and most advanced scientific cooking methodologies that further enhance the taste of your favourite ramen dishes.
