When the Japanese has an entire museum dedicated to ramen, you know they love their ramen. But why good ramen in Malaysia is hard to find? Thank goodness the ramen trend caught up in Malaysia, and we get a few good ramen chain, like Marutama here.
For starters, a basic bowl of ramen with a slice roast, seaweed and chopped spring onion cost RM18 in Marutama. Anything fancier and it could go up to RM20.00++. Additional toppings are priced individually. Not exactly a friendly price for a bowl of noodles, but worth every cent spent.
The few choices of toppings were wonderful addition to the bowl of awesome ramen. Like this delightful seasoned egg topping: humble, unassuming, and basically just egg.
A runny yolk egg.
The single slice of roast pork made us ask for more, so we ordered more of it. The fat literally melt in the mouth.
The gyoza in chilli oil was a side dish. Not the main star, but pleasant nonetheless. Especially good to eat when waiting fo the noodles to arrive.
The piping hot bowl of ramen is the best comfort food during rainy days. The soup, made of chicken was very flavourful, and nicely balanced by the abundant spring onions and seaweed. The originality of the taste reflects their claim of using one chicken for every two bowls of ramen. Frankly, if only this place is nearer, we would be having this very often.
