Klang Valley: 麺屋武蔵 Awesome Menya Musashi Ramen @ Isetan, 1 Utama – Recently, I am getting in love with ramen, this feeling started ever since my brother brought me to Marutama and Ippudu ramen in Singapore. Now, those ramen restaurants are now available in Malaysia and I found some other good one too, just like this Menya Musashi ramen which origins from Japan!
Klang Valley: 麺屋武蔵 Awesome Menya Musashi Ramen @ Isetan, 1 Utama
Menya Musashi is located in Eat Paradise of Isetan in 1 Utama shopping mall. It’s very easy to find, beside it is just another ramen restaurant (Gantetsu) which some said its nice too! The restaurant does not has very fancy design, it’s a very small restaurant with lots of samurai poster. The name of the restaurant comes from the legendary Edo-era swordsman, Miyamoto Musashi. That’s explain the samurai illustration around this little restaurant.
It’s a very happy and cheerful atmosphere at there because the staff, the chefs all are shouting at each other, actually greeting you in Japanese. You actually start out at the entrance where you take a look at the menu, then you order, make payment only then seated.
It’s very easy to order, firstly you choose the type of soup you want, then type of ramen and ingredient and voila, you are done. Other wise, you can pick some side dishes like Gyoza or there’s a nice Chashu Gohan, rice with chashu pork! Yummeh.
So what I ordered was a bowl of Kuro Ajitama Ramen and a Chashu Gohan. Sky juice was free in the restaurant. Talking about the Kuro Ajitama Ramen, Kuro is the broth which made from special garlic oil and fried shallow and it’s brownish black! To be surprised, the soup tasted very very good, and I even perfected it with some extra fried garlic and their special chili oil. The ramen was springy and the tamago egg was just nicely half-boiled. 2 big pieces of Chashu pork with some bamboo shoots cheered up my dinner for that night.
Another dish was the Chashu Gohan, a rice filled with sweet chashu pork and lots of welsh onion. This is nice too and it costs only RM9. I added some fried garlic into the rice to add a bit of crunchy-ness to compliment to the chashu and welsh onion.
Everything was so good, the people, the friendly chefs who always greeting loudly, and shouted like a samurai when making noodles, the ramen, the rice were just great. However, price wise was a bit high as the ramen was RM29. Overall, this is good, and I finished up the soup. Yummeh.
