Match Made in Heaven: The ramen counterpart to neighboring exclusive katsu sando restaurant Wagyumafia, Mashi no Mashi offers wagyu tsukemen noodles in a quiet corner of Wan Chai.

Look & Feel: Accommodating only 12 diners at a time, the cosy ramen counter restaurant is characterized by its bright and playful monkey mascots, which are also emblazoned on the neon sign outside.

On the Menu: Tsukemen is a type of ramen that requires each bite to be submerged in a bowl of dipping sauce. At Mashi no Mashi, there are three types of tsukemen to choose from — regular ($80), wagyu ($130) or tokusei ($160). The beef used is the same melt-in-your-mouth Ozaki beef used at Wagyumafia. There’s also wagyu gyoza ($120 for six pieces) or wagyu donburi (beef over rice).

Meet the Chef: Chef Hisato Hamada is the mastermind behind Wagyumafia, which serves the most expensive katsu sando in the world and boasts massive popularity in its native Japan.

Great For: Satisfying those carnivorous cravings in casual, no-nonsense surrounds.

FYI: Mashi no Mashi made waves when former soccer star David Beckham was photographed enjoying a bowl at the restaurant shortly after its opening.
