Ippudo Malaysia *non-halal*

When Ippudo first landed in Malaysia, there was a big craze over the ramen and everyone actually queued to eat. I was not one of the crazies because there are plenty of eateries in Malaysia. Only in our friendly neighbouring country people queue to eat. If you've been to this particular country, you will know what I mean.

I waited for the craze to die down and the opening of the second outlet before I went and try it. I love it! No crowd, good and fast service and less pollution. I simply love it! I was able to enjoy my ramen in peace.

Ippudo, The Gardens Mall. Low lighting and very cold a/c. Great for the current weather in Malaysia.

Goma Q. Fresh Japanese cucumber with sesame. I'm a sucker for this appetiser. Be it Taiwanese, Shanghainese or Japanese. It's so refreshing!

Shiromaru Special. Shiromaru with salted soft-boiled egg, pork loin and seaweed.
+IPPUDO's original tonkotsu broth served with ultra-thin noodles, pork loin, bean sprouts, kikurage & spring onions. Classic Hakata style ramen.

Karaka Special. Karaka-men with salted soft-boiled egg, pork belly & seaweed. 
+IPPUDO's original tonkotsu broth with special spicy miso, cashew nuts & ground pork.

Ippudo Pan-fried Gyoza. Ippudo's original panfried gyoza is the description in the menu. There was a time when I crave for gyoza. It's hard to find good ones in KL. Or maybe I haven't been eating enough Japanese food? So far I like this and the ones from Kiku Zakura.

What I like best about Ippudo is the option to choose the texture of your ramen. I like it very hard and most people I know like it soft close to soggy. (don't know why) I love the porky broth as it has a sweet end without the strong porky smell. 
But I feel that the portion was too small for a RM30++ bowl of ramen.
