Starting with Tonkatsu Ramen (RM 9.90 regular, RM 11.90 large), diners are presented with a balanced and good mix of homemade noodle, corn, vegetable and their signature char siew. Pork is hardly wrong when it comes to ramen, and refreshing audition of vegetables and corn compliments the umami flavour of the soup.
The Miso Ramen (RM 10.90 regular, RM 12.90 large) presents in a totally different dimension, different from the usual miso flavour we are all familiar with. Thick flavour from the pork bone broth slightly empowers soybean paste but nicely pairing with the noodle and a nice pungent from sprinkled onion with the contentment from a moderate portion to make way for some add on.
Featuring something unique this time is their Gyukotsu Ramen (RM 9.90 regular , RM 11.90 large) which was probably one of the best from them to tickle your taste bud if you are a fan of beef noodle. Thick creaminess from the beef broth to pair with lovely slices of beef; all the glory of generous ingredients in one bowl warrants a satisfaction. This special beef bone ramen served with their own homemade japanese ramen with their soup boiled over 7 hours.

With everything scaled to simpler size and categories, ordering becomes easier and portion easily caters to solo diners. Add ons like Boiled Gyoza (RM 4.90) and their signature Pan Fried Gyoza (RM 4.90) serves in 3 pieces each makes a good addition to their ramen.
The famous appetiser, Aburi Japanese Char Siew (RM 11. 90) also doubles as the perfect add on for those who is fan of balanced layer of fat and meat. Topped and garnished beautifully with spring onion and goji berry, there is a great aroma and is wonderful if it is served hot.
