Dinner @ Hokkaido Ramen Santouka @ Pavilion KL

I’ve read many positive reviews about this place. And I’m sure many of you have tried and also blogged about this place. Each time I pass by this place..I often sees the long queue. Customers waited to be seated.

One day…when Alex and I were at Pavilion, we decided to try and see whether is it really that good. Since we were quite early around 6+pm…therefore the queue wasn’t too long and we waited for about 10 minutes to get our seat. While waiting to be seated…we read through the menu to choose what to order. And that saves some time too. (BTW…the menu has only few pages) ^^

I felt that ‘Ramen’ is gaining its popularity these days. Many places seems to be serving ramen and there are more new ramen restaurants too. Will it be like ‘Bubble Milktea Fever’?? Hehe….

Hokkaido Ramen Santouka is located at 6th floor…in Tokyo Street. In Ramen Santouka, the ramen are served in 3 different sizes. Small, Medium and Large. I like it that way…so that you won’t waste food. If its only 1 standard size..and if the portion is big..you can’t finish, that would be a waste rite? 😉

Info about Hokkaido Ramen Santouka soup.

The Perfect Temperature for Delicious Soup

To make our mild, pearl-colored Tonkotsu soup, we take the time about 20 hours to simmer the pork bones before adding our vegetables, dried fish, kelp and other special ingredients.

The soup is maintain at its optimal temperature to best be enjoyed by everyone.

We strictly maintain the exact same cooking standards as the other Ramen Santouka restaurant around the world.

Miso Ramen (Small) – RM22.50

What’s in the bowl? Crunchy bamboo shoot (no weird taste..not to worry), jelly ear, Cha-Shu (tender 3 layers pork from certain part of pork back ribs) in flavorful miso (soy bean) + pork broth.

I like their thin, springy and crunchy ramen!

Kara-Miso Ramen (Medium) – RM27.00

The ingredients are similar to the one above. The difference it that, Kara-Miso has some spiciness for the ‘lat-jiu’ people. I preferred Miso Ramen…the soup has stronger and flavorful taste.

Gorgeous looking bowl of ramen.

Komi Tamago (Flavored Boiled Egg) – RM 2

Complete your bowl of ramen with this egg. Its not hard nor too soft…with the beautiful semi runny yolk.

Aburi Toroniku (Roasted Pork Cheek) – RM17

Pork Cheek??? *While touching my own cheek* Must be very lean and smooth like mine rite… Oppss…

These thinly sliced (in fact too thin I felt) pork cheek indeed lean and tender! Each pieces of glossy pork cheeks are lay on a piece of mesh with a lit candle below. DELICIOUS!

 

Looks like I don’t need to spend an expensive fare to Japan for a nice bowl of Ramen. I can still get it in KL!!  😉
