Ramen is something that I do craving from time to time, to find good ramen is not easy in Malaysia. Many may claim that they do have good ramen noodle with outstanding soup plus authenticity of Japanese taste, and yet there are only few restaurants that able to claim that. I am just happen in Atria shopping centre after buying some groceries, my wife and me trying to find some simple food. Turns out I found tokyo ramen restaurant, so we decide to go and try the taste.
It is located at third floor of Atria, and the sign is quite outstanding so it is hard to miss the shop. I love the interior design by the way. It is really bring welcoming feeling. At that time we are here, it is around 11:30 AM so it is still not crowded of people yet. I keep telling my wife that I want the long table in our future house so that we can invite more people to our house to dine.
This is the small portion of pork rice that we order, thin slice of pork cooked with sauce, and some seaweed at the bottom of meat, with good serving of onion. It taste quite normal taste, personally I think it is not worth the price with the taste.
A glimpse of shoyu based noodle. The portion is small and have some slice of pork meat. This noodle comes with rice so we do expect it is small serving portion. One comment that I have, I will never order this dish again. It is taste like hot water with some sauce. Plus the noodle is not really on par with standard Japan ramen noodle. It is not chewy and taste slightly blunt. I do understand that getting japanese level of noodle is difficult in Malaysia, since the flour and egg need to be import from Japan itself, regardless of that, using local ingredient with right method of cooking process will be able to get quite close with the quality of Japanese noodle.
This is our main dish that I pick. Simply it contain ‘Naruto’. The portion is big with generous soup. Egg cook perfectly, and the meat tenderness is just nice. The soup broth is outstanding and I really highly recommend this dish for anyone who comes to this place. Since the serving is big, so it is wise to share this to two people. I just feel that the seaweed is less with this serving. I If this dish using better noodle, and getting right salt, it will be much more tastier. Even when I write this post my mouth wet with saliva.
Overall this place is worth to mention simply because Tonkotsu ramen is superb. I have not tried other type of soup, but in serious note hopefully they are able to improve the taste of noodle.
