Mong Seng Kopitiam for some authentic Hee Kiaw Noodle @ Melaka



The coffee shop operates till late night, the only one lit along the street. On darker and colder nights, steams and lights from inside the shop and near the corridor at where a hawker cart is showcasing the Hee Kiaw is all that is visible from where parking is aplenty on the opposite road. The majority of items are less than RM 10 a bowl– you’ll get some spare change back when you order any of the noodle type, dry or soup, thick kuey tiao or yellow mee, bee hoon or even without the noodles if you choose to go with their tau kee alone instead. There is no hor fun noodles (I think), which is great because hor fun is only great and can only be fantastic as chicken hor fun. Sure, they are a lot chewier than kuey Tiaw, but it certainly isn’t going to replace kuey tiaw in certain dishes, especially in this case- it is going to be super clumpy put into dry hee kiaw noodle.


Unable to choose between yellow mee or kuey tiao, I went with mix of both. It’s an efficient operation, there’s no table service, customers order at the cooking station and the food comes to your table at lightning speed. A big bowl of noodle comes with basic fish cake slices, fish balls, and thick cut of smoky char siew. Sprinkled with fried shallots and topped with a generous dollop of chili sauce, with optional additional pieces of tau kee and assorted fish paste parcels, this shouldn’t be a supper portion at all. Take note the chili is a traditional sop for years so unless asked to opt out during when you order, you are getting the chili whether you like it or not. The chili though, was lovely if not great. Slightly briny from the shrimp or seafood alike ingredient that I believe was added onto it. Could be fish sauce, and while the saltiness isn’t to my liking, it’s hard to complain when you can get a decent meal for less than a tenner. Especially when the fish ball noodle and taukee pieces were so decently delicious.

Yu Jiao Me (Melaka)


When it comes to food, it is almost impossible to pick the best. Only what’s best to you or what’s best to her or him. Food is always subjective and there can never be right or wrong. I do however have an issue when business owners serve food without passion. And when a business runs for decades, there must be beauty in it whether you see it or not. Yu jiao Me is one that has expertly withstood the test of time for whatever reasons it is. I like it that it is simple and modest, and auntie is friendly. Smiles are everywhere and whatever plays on their choice of FM accompanies your meal time. Only a handful of choices available from both the stalls within the coffee shop – noodles or rice. Skipping rice this time around, we put noodles to our table. Egg noodle in wantan new was decently good without lumping and with no sticky starch coating the strands of noodle, and tasty char siew meat quite almost a little smoky in aroma, but really lack the vegetables. It seriously got me wondering as to why they are even bothered to even go through the trouble to put the two leaves onto the noodle? Laksa on the other hand didn’t appeal to me. It does deliver on this much-loved classic: the big, deep bowl has a rich broth, a good measure of coconut creaminess, puffy tofu, a good handful of beansprout and a nice warm hit of chilli that won’t break your taste buds mainly because of the heavy dose of sugar. I wish there were more kick to the laksa broth. They throw in fish balls and charsiew which would also appear in the rest of the noodle items on the menu but that’s good because it will then be fresh all the time.

I wouldn’t mind eating here out of convenient but to return on purpose would have to take more than just comfort wantan noodle and their overly sweet laksa.

There is a really delicious fish ball noodle just right next to this one called the Oriental Noodle. Anyone could probably tell who wins the heart of noodle lovers, just by looking at the crowd in both this side by side coffee shop.

Authentic porky meal at Yeah Cuisine, Jalan Awan (Ampang)

Yeah Cuisine at Jalan Awan Ampang

Yeah cuisine shouts authentic and delicious flavour at Jalan Awan, Ampang. They’ll tell you to go for the pork patty. They’ll tell you it’s a juicy bite of delicious umami minced with fresh herbs and sweet meat. And they’d be right. It is. Meals are available up until 3pm. And it’s well worth doing. Minced pork patty- isn’t too fat or too coarsely minced, but it wasn’t paste like either, the right fat-to-meat ratio. Pork patties serving on top of warm rice, this is the kind of bowl you will look forward to. I would of course like it with more vegetable but the salted fish in the patty was so amazing I didn’t mind the lack of vegetable.
With a variant of patties available to top that steaming fluff of white rice, choose from Coriander Pork Patty, Salted fish Pork Patty or even Dried Squid Patty, which by the way is very umami packed. The best thing is, noodle is available. Pork patty will rest on a bed of braised pork so if the patty isn’t quite what you are feeling, go for the Braised Pork Rice. Cubes of fat and meat layer from the pork belly with our staple grains and a whole braised egg is so good. Did I mention the bowls each comes with a sinful spoonful of fried lard? I swear to you it was some mixed emotions but if your stomach (or artery veins in this case) have only quota or space for one thing, then go for the pork patty.

such generous spoonful of pork lard (CYC)- dayuuummm..

Should you have more space in the stomach, or more people to share your meal, then get a Chinese burger. The white cottony soft and fluffy mantao bun was so good with the dried squid pork patty. With the right thickness for the right amount of chew and plenty of umami from the dried squids, and the patty slightly bigger than the bao, every bite is enjoyably assured to have meat in it. Cleverly sandwich with some pickled vegetable, this can actually be a meal on its own. Other snacking option isn’t as interesting but it was really good to offer for variety. Especially for neighbouring patrons, Yeah cuisine can have you screaming for meal time every now and then when thinking of comfort food of honest serving. The restaurant is not stingy with their ingredients.7.yeah cuisinec

Noodle is a great breakfast option but oh that rice roll…. And that curry… Malaysians will swear on that authentic curry is an entitlement and this Hakka heritage delivers an inimitable complex flavour that’s closer to the roots of Hakka palate. I personally feel that Hakka dishes are a little heavier when it comes to flavour but it is what makes them unique in defining their culinary history.

Menya Miyabi Hokkaido Ramen @ Sunway Pyramid


From miso to tonkotsu made with that long-simmered pork bone broth, to some simple light soya sauce-based soup, we’d have no problem getting the ramen fix in all sorts of forms in the Klang Vallley. In the most authentic and traditional restaurants to some fusion contemporary cafes that are always trying something a bit different than the rest, it really isn’t challenging to grab that steaming bowl of Japanese noodle in broth. But as to exactly where the best ramen joints are at, is still a question with no definite answer. The newest in Sunway- the Menya Miyabi Hokkaido Ramen is one with decidedly classic looking ramen bowls with short pages of menu featuring a handful of ramen selections. We’ve slurped our way through some of the noodles on the menu and rounded up the conclusion if the place is a dupe .


First and foremost, the place is about ramen. Because menu is straight forward with pictures and quick description. The short and simple menu makes ordering easy, but I recommend the seasonal Burnt Garlic . I personally can’t get over the brined noodles thanks to the powerful broth. But the loaded topped garlic were unmistakeably garlicky, the whole experience is rich, flavour and might even leave some wanting more. Gyoza (six pieces for RM13, 10 pieces for RM19) wasn’t something memorable and elegantly presented. But that is the character seen in typical Japanese dumpling. They are the perfect nibble.

2.Menya Miyabi Hokkaido Ramen @ Sunway Pyramid


The classics topped with onion, bamboo, slices of tender meat and most importantly and interesting surprise of a good textured and perfectly cooked noodles- we hardly get good noodle texture without a gentle reminder to the chef, that some of us in Malaysia do like the real deal of springy from ramen noodles. While there are some with thicker and more flavourful broth, the rest of the bowls of the order didn’t quite make it to please or pass the musters for value and depth of flavour. The rest on the table seemed to unhappy with the rest of the ramen choices. All Assari Sio Ramen (RM23) , Tonkotsu ramen (RM 25) and Yaki- Miso Ramen( RM 25 ) were either lightly seasoned or

Soon Soon Pan Mee & Fish Head Noodle @ Mutiara Damansara


With those mismatched tables and plastic chairs for seats, this newly expanded coffee shop space is loud, crowded and unrefined- just the way many of us would enjoy a comfort meal before casual trendy gossips and news- both fake or real. This isn’t a newbie in town but the recent expansion means a lot to some of their hardcore fan. Many are drawn into Soon Soon Pan Mee and fish head noodle by the reputation, and there is not a time of day when a crowd can’t be spotted outside, lining up or waiting for a table. Most come with family and larger group. Now with a bigger space means more seats and tables hence it is now shorter time in the line, so scene as such is possibly no longer visible.



It is almost not necessary to look at the menu when you are here, you’ll find everyone else sorta eating the same couple of dishes, and you should too: they are famous for making the best fish head noodle within this area. You’ll spot a bowl of glistening noodle dish on almost every table. Unlike typical fish head noodle, the broth here is slightly starchy and has what’s close to broth-like consistency. Each spoonful delivers soup made from rich stock that’s umami with a hind of sweet tang from the tomatoes and the pickled mustard green. Soup is thick also because of yam chucks that contributes a little starch to the texture of the soup. While it is not merely about the soup, each pieces of fillet were thick, cuboidal and fried correctly for sufficient crisp on the outside and moist juicy on the inside. The deep fried also helps lock the flavor of fish from within so it compliments the noodles in the soup.

Skip the pan mee and char chan teng breakfast all together cause why waste your quota on those when you can have the delicious fish head noodle? Of course, unless if you are not a fan of fish head noodle of which if so then you shouldn’t even bother visiting this shop then. They do however bring some nostalgic memories to the root of local coffee shop menu. Eggs are always fresh, I would order the half-boiled eggs every single time and they never fail me.

Guess What Vietnamese restaurant @ Kota Damansara


Vietnamese chain and standalone restaurants are getting more and more popular in our local food scene with the latest and my most recent favourite, Guess What? at the Kota Damansara. No need to actually guess it, cause that’s the name of this Vietnamese restaurant. Don’t ask me. But there’s all the classic Vietnamese dishes (summer rolls, pho, rice) plus some Vietnamese tea and coffee. The menu is an edited-down list, each dish portrayed in an adjoining colour pic: a couple of starters, lots of substantial bowlfuls, some side dishes and my favourite sandwich of all time- banh mi. Service is laid-back yet welcoming, and the food quite superb. Not only is the food impressive and authentic, it’s inexpensive too. Whether you’re after Bánh mì or a steaming bowl of Pho, Guess What Vietnamese boast more than enough signature dishes to satisfy your cravings.


The herby Summer Rolls (RM 6.90) were a joy, together with the Fish Sauce Chicken Wing (RM 6.90) that is very highly recommended by the owner, for a good reason. Let the first bite speak for itself and at that point it’s only the eyes that’s talking cause the lips are sealed munching on that delicious bites of succulent chicken. Mango Papaya Pork Salad (RM 6.90) doesn’t quite capture the usually obsessed-with-raw papaya-me like how it usually does, but is a decent enough rendition with the addition of pork in it. I’ll go for the Deep-Fried Rolls (RM 6.90) instead.

4.Guess What Vietnamese restaurant @ Kota Damansara


Dry noodles were joy, and the beautifully flavoured pho with slices of beef, chicken and seafood was all it should be. All three of the Pork Chop Noodles (RM 9.90), Stir Fried Australian Beef (RM 12.90) , and the Lemongrass Chicken Vermicelli (RM 11.90) were packed with generous meat and a whole chop of pork, with tasty and fresh garnishes to enhance the flavours of each bite, every bowlful is a value for money. Pho with options of either rice noodle or egg noodle comes in beef and chicken variants, plus that seafood option packed with delicious homemade meat balls with satisfying biting size with deep and flavourful broth. Silky noodle some with a rendition of additional poached free-range egg is a luxury although it would be fine without it. Choose among Clams (RM 8.90), Handmade Beed Ball (RM 13.90), Pork (RM 8.90), Fish (RM 12.90), Beef Internal Organs (RM 12.90), Chicken (RM 8.90) using free range chicken and 1 poached egg, or even the Australian Beef Pho (RM 13.90 if asking for beef slice or RM 17.90 if asking for Ribeye Slices) for a meal of hearty comfort and satisfying pleasure.

The noodle bowls are not the only thing bulked out by massive, meaty toppings. Rice dishes definitely delivered with the same value for money with options like Beef stew rice (RM 15.50), Vietnamese Chicken or Pork Chop (RM 12.90), and Lemongrass Pork or Chicken (RM 9.90). The meats excel when it comes to depth of flavours and while there isn’t really any disappointment here, given the comfortable setting and fair pricing offered, I’ll let the absence of alcohol drinks slide.

French- Vietnamese sandwich is a big part of Vietnam’s street food culture but they are ubiquitous in Vietnamese café and restaurants outside Vietnam. I for one is a lame sucker for the crisp-shelled baguettes that makes beautiful crackling sounds. Even if they aren’t the principle offering, I am always ordering it just to have a bite of the crispy baguette. The baguettes here are outsourced and are filled with a choice of Beef, Pork, Chicken, or Tuna (all priced at RM 7.90 each), and topped with fresh vegetables and herbs. I love the generous coriander on it. The classic pork banh mi comes with a succulent cold cut of pork, earthy liver pâté, crunchy veg and fresh coriander, all in a light crispy baguette. It can be happiness in every single bite depending on how much you love banh mi but no matter how much I love it, I probably wouldn’t go for tuna.

Solomen Cafe @ SS 2


From ramen bowls made with long simmer pot bone broth, simple soy sauce based soup, or miso to rice bowls with delicious pork slices; we can now get our Japanese comfort meal fix in Solomen Cafe at SS2. There is not only an assortment of steaming bowls of thin wheat noodles in broth, but a good fare of Japanese classics to complete a wholesome meal. This plain and humble looking cafe is absolutely a very good space and ambiance for leisure and comforting meal.


Starting with the delicious pieces of Gyoza (RM 1190), it is something that I’d highly recommend as add ons or appetisers. These parcels of pan fried dumpling are succulently wrapped tightly to reserve the juice and moist of the fillings so that every bite is rich and packed with flavours. And skillfully controlling the cooking time, those deep fried homemade marinated pork chop is another good dish for communal dining. Tonkatsu (RM 20.90) are crispy on the outside and tender delicious on the inside.


1.Solomen Café @ SS 2

2.Solomen Café @ SS 2


Moving to their ramen bowls, both the Tonkotsu Ramen (RM 20.90) and Kimchi Ramen (RM 19.90) packs a flavoursome punch with the usual suspects of seaweed and eggs to be expected; as well as al dante bites of springy ramen noodle. The portions are amazing- not too gigantic yet great enough to satisfy ramen craving.


3.Solomen Café @ SS 2

4.Solomen Café @ SS 2

5.Solomen Café @ SS 2


Negi Miso Ramen (RM 20.90) also have those juicy pork but shredded to match the texture of fried leek on their ramen noodles simmered in delicious homemade miso soup.


6.Solomen Café @ SS 2

7.Solomen Café @ SS 2


Ramen isn’t the only thing you get because the menu also presents a couple of rice bowls and like their ramen bowls; these rice bowls are hearty and filling. Shiogayaki don (RM 21.50) was topped with stir fried sliced pork and onion in homemade ginger sauce while Hokkaido Buta Don (RM 22.90) had their rice topped with sliced pork on special homemade sweet sauce. Should the rice have a better texture, their rice bowls are close to perfect given the range of pricing they are tagged on. After all, mushy texture really won’t do Japanese rice grain any justice.

16. solomen ss2

15.Tori Karaage  (RM 14.50)


Hoikoro (RM 16.90) stir fried sliced pork with vegetables in homemade miso paste would put a smile to pork lover with the layers of evenly distributed fats in between the layers of pork belly slices. But if you are avoiding those fats, may I recommend the gigantic Tori Karaage (RM 14.50). There are no fats in this one, only super thick coating of flour enveloping the chicken cuts to lock all moist and juice of the meat. I didn’t enjoy the thick- almost close to goey in between the supposedly-crunchy outer layer and the succulent tender boneless chicken meat; but majority would love the huge value-for-money pieces of chicken.


12.Solomen Café @ SS 2

13.Solomen Café @ SS 2

14.Tori Karaage  (RM 14.50)


So because they are also a café, the beverage list conquers 2 pages of the menu. Cucumber Mojito Sparker (RM 10.90) was really refreshing and perfect as to beat those fiery weather out there and you get your caffeine fix too if are merely just chilling after the comforting meal. Latte (RM 9.90) fares well to go with their selection of cakes- both the Cempedak Lover (RM 13.90) and Tiramisu (RM 11.90) .

Mak’s Chee Cheesy Wanton and Champion Milk Tea @ 1 Utama


With festive around the corner and everyone in the mood for quirkiness, Mak’s Chee Wanton noodle at 1 Utama shopping mall recently launched a super fancy and delicious milk tea in a muscular body shaped bottle. This Champion Milk Tea (RM 6.90) combines the techniques of KamCha (the only international brewing completion on Hong Kong style milk tea) winners and made with 100% Sri Lankan Ceylon tea, the milk tea really quite the seamless marriage of rich brewed flavours and rich classic evaporated milk. This one is classy smooth, slippery and gloriously creamy to also hit you with a wave and perk of refreshing caffeine.


1.Mak’s Chee Cheesy Wanton and Champion Milk Tea @ 1 Utama


Ruling out this fancy bottle, the smoothness, and velvety robust flavour is actually unrivalled when it comes to Hong Kong milk tea in the mall. It’s really addictive and if you are already a lover of milk tea like me, you’ll love this one.


2.Mak’s Chee Cheesy Wanton and Champion Milk Tea @ 1 Utama


And while we had some fun drinking from this whacky bottle, I checked out their parcels of cheesy wanton. Once again being the trend setter, Mak’s Chee has created the delicious cheesy wanton- a parcel of fresh prawn with mozzarella and cheddar cheese enclosed in thin deep fried wanton skin that is crazy crispy and addictively unstoppable. Embrace the perpetually busy mall to get a taste of their signature wanton that exemplifies comfort food, but with a twist of the cheesy trend along the line. Crispy tasty with amazing texture on the outside and in it is a burst of fresh shrimp still juicy and sweet, with extra savoury from those cheeses in it even though it would be extra phenomenal with more generous portion of cheese.


3.Mak’s Chee Cheesy Wanton and Champion Milk Tea @ 1 Utama


Cheesy Wanton isn’t exactly the only thing worthy of a visit here because their refine noodle is something out of the ordinary to what Malaysians are accustomed to when it comes to wanton noodle. Unlike the egg noodle we are all familiar with, this one is looking a lot simpler yet essentially interesting when it comes to the variations derived solely from basic element of wanton noodle- noodle, broth and wanton.


4.Mak’s Chee Cheesy Wanton and Champion Milk Tea @ 1 Utama
5.Mak’s Chee Cheesy Wanton and Champion Milk Tea @ 1 Utama


A large Wanton and dumpling soup noodle (RM 16.90) here but is reasonable when every wanton has a whole shrimp with minced pork. Each parcel consistently sealed very nicely to pack all the flavours within every package of both dumpling and wanton.

6.Mak Chee’s Cheesy Wanton and Champion Milk Tea @ 1 Utama
7.Mak Chee’s Cheesy Wanton and Champion Milk Tea @ 1 Utama


Every packet of their wanton is filled with plump and fresh shrimp; I’ve enjoyed every bit of it. As for those dumplings, each of them is stuffed to the brim with delicious filling so if you want something more filling than shrimps, dumplings have pork in it but my heart and palate is won over by the Wanton Tendon Soup (RM 14.90).


9.Mak’s Chee Cheesy Wanton and Champion Milk Tea @ 1 Utama
10.Mak’s Chee Cheesy Wanton and Champion Milk Tea @ 1 Utama


Although the serving size is tiny but going large really isn’t necessary because another good way to make complete a wholesome meal is some vegetables. Unlike the usual wanton noodle that’s commonly accompanied by the some vegetables, this one has no vegetables in it. But, ala carte has vegetables to add to the meal. Vegetable with Roe Powder comes with that popular shrimp powder usually added to their wanton noodle in Hong Kong. No doubt the smell of dried shrimp powder sprinkled on top of the vegetable really helps stimulating the appetite.


11.Mak Chee’s Cheesy Wanton and Champion Milk Tea @ 1 Utama


Beverage menu is considered comprehensive with things like Teas and boiled sweet beverages. I had my Osmanthus Oolong Tea (RM 3.90) and Lemon Water Cress ( RM 5.90) and it was decent with nothing much to shout about.


12.Mak’s Chee Cheesy Wanton and Champion Milk Tea @ 1 Utama
13.Mak’s Chee Cheesy Wanton and Champion Milk Tea @ 1 Utama


Not to compare to the portion and pricing around our region because at Mak’s Chee Malaysia, it is most likely that the essential slurp experience would be replicated. The street original is an absolute steal despite the slightly expensive price for a very tiny bowl of noodle. Watch this on my snap stories here.

Bakso Monster the Fattest Bakso in Town @ Bangsar


We don’t have that great bakso variant like those in Indonesia but Bakso Monster in Bangsar is serving us gigantic serving size at such fantastic pricing. While bakso is traditionally sold on the street by travelling vendors in Indonesia, Bakso Monster here takes over Jan’s outlet to serve not only delicious monster sized meals, but comfy ambiance as well.

3.Bakso Monster the Fattest Bakso in Town @ Bangsar


Sure there is nothing exotic about this location, with tons of cafes and eateries popping up every now and then. Bangsar has always been upscale and expensive, but the authentic Indonesian cooking steals the show. Menu as such is rare, just a choice of four to six dishes. And at this pricing, a ten ringgit will comfortably feed one pax. These homemade Bakso with any choice of noodle and soup cost RM 9.90. Pick from either glass noodle, yellow noodle or horse fun noodle, to go with either clear soup, sup tulang, or tomyam.

There is option to add on Bakso (RM 7) or noodle (RM 2) as well as vegetables (RM 2)or kerupuk pangsit (RM 3) but be rest assured that additional bakso isn’t necessary. And those fiery hot and spicy chili sauces and sambal, they are to die for.

After those Monster meatballs and Monster beverages, sweet finishing should be regular sized so I went with the small serving of Monster Murtabak (RM 6) but it wasn’t as satisfying as the monster bakso, not because of the serving size but the taste. Let’s just say that desserts are not their forte.

Both food and beverage menu fit in a single page on their menu, and those monster specialty are crazy huge. They mean it monster when it’s called monster.

Both Monster Tea (RM 3.50) and Monster Teh Tarik (RM 5.50) are jumbo sized. It is a lot more obvious on video so watch it on my snap chat (@sycookies )- they were HUGE.

Bariuma Ramen @ Jaya Shopping Centre


If you ever find yourself hungry in Jaya shopping mall, this is the place to go: Bari-Uma Ramen attracts patrons with not only their ramen, but the spread of versatility and choices of classic Japanese treats. And like many other ramen joints in town, semi open kitchen is always a delight to watch.

Their hearty bowls of noodles went nicely with the superb slices of meat, while big eaters can order gyoza dumplings to go with the main dish. Gyoza (5pcs for Rm 11 or 20pcs for Rm 20) isn’t our typical Japanese pan fried dumpling. Instead of the usual pork, chicken is wrapped in a nice thin layer of dumpling skin and was superbly juicy. Dipping into the Gyoza sauce further enhances the sweetness of the dumpling, also making this a very lovely appetiser.

Butanegima (pork thigh and leeks) (Rm 5.90) puts together a balance in both flavour and texture while savouring those semi lean pork slices and crunchy leeks.


3.Bariuma Ramen @ Jaya Shopping Centre


Ramen comes with an option of three textures just to cater to local palate. Whether you like it soft, normal or hard, make known to them when ordering. The portion was good, sufficient, satisfying and enjoyable with the essence of ramen- the soup, to follow with peppery finishing and very intense umami flavour.

Charred pork slices take the flavour to a higher level and when swimming in the soup, adds more flavour to the ramen. Also contributing to the flavour is the intense flavour of bamboo shot and large sheets of seaweeds, as well as the generous tossed of chopped spring onions.


6.Bariuma Ramen @ Jaya Shopping Centre


The toppings add ons are totally versatile and portion were generously luscious.

Their green tea is mildly fragrant with light aromatic roasted aroma but at the same time a little too steep for me.

Tokyo Ramen by Mengokoro Kunimoto @ Atria Shopping Gallery


With just four flavours of ramen, Tokyo Ramen by Mengokoro Kunimoto at Atria Shopping Gallery is quite the appropriate place for swift and comfortable meal. Also, it’s one of the selected few Japanese restaurant with Tsukemen. The interior is bright, polished and neat with selected nook filled with adorable Japanese ornaments. And like many other Japanese ramen joints, the staffs are very friendly.

Service is accommodating and welcoming and at any time, has no queue at the door. With a tiny menu of four ramen and a selective few other staple, smaller dishes are popular amongst group diners but doesn’t warrant such high demand: Gyoza (RM 10.90) were let down by a mushy filling; Ajitsuke Tamago (RM 2.50) had uneven texture and a little overcooked.

A classic bowl of tonkatsu soup usually served piping hot with pork slices, bean sprouts, bamboo shoots, seaweed, spring onion and beautiful strands of noodle would be the common favourite for most diners. It was a little salty to my liking and instead of steaming hot, it was served unpalatably lukewarm. Tonkatsu Ramen (RM 19.90) here serves a satisfying portion if bouncy noodles.

They also offer Tsukemen (RM 23.90)- something you don’t see so often at ramen joints. This super chewy dipping ramen paired well with the flavourful soup filled with umami finishing, you wouldn’t be surprised to be seeing anyone draining the bowl once finished with the noodles.

If you are up for rice and curry, their creamy concoction gives you their Chicken Curry (RM 18). The attraction here might not be curry but it’s made with a smooth roux that perfectly complements the rice. Alas, the chicken cutlets were so tiny they were almost nonexistent.

Green Tea (RM 8.70) is served in pots so take your time and sip after you slurp.

Kisyu Ramen @ Desa Sri Hartamas


Kisyu Ramen in Hartamas is yet another Japanese noodle shops that are stacking up like jets over the KLIA. With plenty of Japanese chain of ramen restaurants launched in Klang Valley over the years, some even highly regarded in Japan itself; those entrants set a clear bench mark to almost initiate the ramen outbreak since the burger trend. This one here will be just another place to offer some hearty noodles in soup.


1.Kisyu Ramen @ Desa Sri Hartamas


With expatriates highly populated in this area and Japanese and Korean food at every few shop fronts in Desa Sri Hartamas, ramen seemed to please most of the population but here is the thing about ramen, as with so much in Japanese culture itself, makes it hard to distinguish and crown the best ramen bowl once it gets passed the bench mark.


2.Kisyu Ramen @ Desa Sri Hartamas


Meeting the basic criteria in this dog whistle territory (unless if we decided to be pernickety diner and would meticulously evaluate every little detail), the Tonkatsu Shoyu Ramen (RM 22) with its fine broth and pleasant portion to satiate is a good treat. The lawn of spring onion sprinkles was darling to the bowl of comforting dish.


3.Kisyu Ramen @ Desa Sri Hartamas


Then the catch to compete with the many ramen bowls within this proximity comes down to plenty of other authentic Japanese offerings, which to my amusement is decently delicious given by right the ramen being their highlight. Apparently also on their extensive menu, there is plenty of Yakitori to choose from. In fact, combo prices with deals of RM 16.80 for 5 kinds of yakitori don’t seem like a bad idea at all.


4.Kisyu Ramen @ Desa Sri Hartamas
Eggplant RM 2.80 and Chicken Heart( RM 3.80)


5.Kisyu Ramen @ Desa Sri Hartamas
Asparagus& Bacon RM 5, Chicken Gizzard RM 3.50 and Chicken Liver (RM 3.50)


6.Kisyu Ramen @ Desa Sri Hartamas
Yakitori assorted 5 kinds( RM 16.80)


To go with your ramen you can splash out on add on combo choices – Rice with Iyako and Mentaiko (RM 6.80), but you don’t need to.

On the other hand, I wouldn’t mind the Sliced Roast Pork with Onsen Egg (RM 12). Slight crisp on the lightly roasted thin slices of roast pork with a comforting essence of a perfectly cooked onsen egg, all swimming in a bed of sweet stir fried julienne onions.


9.Kisyu Ramen @ Desa Sri Hartamas


Like many other Japanese restaurants, interior are kept minimal and uncluttered, but the dark wooded tables and bored-looking waitresses probably wouldn’t impress the locals, let alone Japanese expats.
