Ebi Ramen the Great! Smile Jan 28, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Japanese | Restaurant | Ramen

This was the menu a year back specially only for the Jakarta Branch. Marutama is known for the chicken soup broth ramen which was very strong in its flavoring and juices.

And this was the bowl I was looking for - the mix of chicken broth and sweetness of ebi juice into one hearty bowl. Not exactly hearty as this ramen bowl is pretty tight and small than a usual ramen which are in authentic Japan, massive.

It tasted just the most delicious way as I wanted it - this is the best choice for those who had trouble finishing the only original chicken soup, as I had a hard time - it was so strong! This has the nice amount of rich chicken with the fresh, lightness of seafood ebi and a spritz of lemon. Ramen was springy and sluuuurpingly deeeelish. mad

$15 was the price you gotta fish in. It is a bit on the ex side judging from portion, but taste cannot lose.

I even have forgotten halfway to add in sesame and fried garlic!!! Which means, the bowl is good as it comes to your way without any other condiment.

Service was A+, the waitress was caring and attentive, noting on when our water glass was halfway empty and asking how is the food.

Best thing was, THERE WAS NO Q!

It does look as good as it is in the bright picture! smile

Service was fast, as one of the guys from the resto just came by and say "would you like to eat nasi briyani mutton satay etc." whatever on their menu was. And that's how my friend and I ate this. From far, I saw the stall was a grade B in cleanliness.

Looking at the menu, the mutton briyani. The mutton was very soft so it was easy to bite and it was fairly a huge side, but the portion of the rice wasn't as much as it used to be for briyani (IT IS HUGE RIGHT, LIKE COVERING THE ENTIRE HUGE PLATE) but in this case, it wasn't much.

It's given nicely on a banana leaf, adding points for service, laid on top of a tray. The curry and cream was given abundantly and vegetables was given at a scoop mount. Rice was very flavorful with the spice, a bit of pepperish side but it was good, I was perspiring when eating! But now, I do believe for $6 you used to get a hefty amount, now you get lesser.

Service was then on spot, as he served up on the table and brought our meal, because he did approach to us first. So that quite counts as a nice serving point in a hawker center! smile

Fried seafood udon to try! Smile Jan 27, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Malaysian | Noodles

If you know the branch in Bugis is always pretty full during lunch hours, the Park mall is rather quiet on weekends but full with people working on weekdays.

by the time know, that I've been on a noodle roll and I've been probably beaten out by now of noodles right

More or less so, but it doesn't stop me from other noodle types!mad

Seeing what looks good on the menu that is rarely tried out, the fried udon with seafood looks tantalizing enough for me to go ahead and place an order. I was expecting the chewy udon in return with again, fishball pieces here and there in sweet black sauce used to 'fry'.

While a bowl on the table was cold, but mine was piping hot, certified it just has been cook out of the wok. Udon was not as chewy as expected, but the sauce was just right and the chilli given by them on request was pretty spicey! Portion was so-so in between and I was still hungry after that, but it should be OK for the rest, the seafood they gave was plentiful!

Noodles after lessons Smile Jan 27, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Food Court | Noodles

Lessons located at Northbridge, this place was fairly close by and to run an errand at BBC complex.

Getting dried noodles, changed to kway tiao (avoiding egg noodles for the moment for CNY fatness issues), I also expected the soup with fishball and fish cake to be GOOD.

Well, it was, and the portion is on the bigger side too. Sauce was not spicy although this image looks red, mind you, but the minced meat wasn't as neutral-tasting like I find at most places, where actually pork should be sweet tasting, right!mad

Huge Set Menu Udon and Don Meal! Smile Jan 25, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Japanese | Restaurant | Chinese Soup

To cure the starving point of my evening night after not snacking in between afternoon, the Waraku set meal including a bowl of gohan, katsu, miso and udon was the best choice. For $20+, you are entitled to get everything in a go!

Rice and katsu was self explanatory and at least well-done in frying. Not too much grease and the crisp is just correct, breaded in bread crumbs. Rice was warm when served. Udon was also as of normal standard with clear broth soup and the white chewy noodles with your seaweed and those pink colored fish slices. Miso wasn't too salty. For this I'm going for the portion with the good price given but Waraku definitely knows well of course what they are cooking, and its what you expect.

I had to forgive the service was slow becuase it was a full house, it was rather hard to call in a waiter, as they're hard to come by and I had to just went over to the pitcher and get the water myself.
