Tucked in Isetan’s Eat Paradise is a very quite restaurant that serves Hokkaido ramen, naturally that would be the star of our dish.
The restaurant is without walls and the ambient is pretty much what you experience at the old wing of 1 Utama.
The first thing that got our attention was the service, the waiters graciously lead us to the table of our desire and even took another chair from an unoccupied table for me to place my bag instead of having it on the floor. I was impressed. 🙂
Now for the food – starting off the meal was the reason why we visit this place, the Hokkaido Ramen. We ordered the set that costs RM 32 – the Hokkaido King Charshu Tonkotsu that comes with sliced pork, miso soup and marinated eggs. The noodle was aromatic largely contributed by the accompanying elements making it a memorable dish on its own despite the rather high price tag.
The set comes with Gyouza which is a form of dumpling. Not bad at all.
Ramen aside, I decided to try something else – Katsu Curry Rice (RM 22.90), of which I’m quite disappointed as the chicken was dry and tough. I must say it’s rather price for something that’s of just plain rice with curry and poorly cooked chicken.
As for additiona side dishes, we tried their Hokkaido Potato Croquette (RM 8.50) of which tastes like ………….. potato, a really pricey one.
And lastly, the fried prawns (RM 15.50). Make no mistake though, this is not to be mistaken with tempura prawns. I quite like this dish, especially with the savory crust and the accompanying mayonnaise to go with it.
Love Japanese noodles?
Do give their Hokkaido ramen a try, Gantetsu is at Isetan so it’s not difficult to find. 🙂
Lexiegirl (19 Jan 2015): The ramen’s broth has been disappointing in my recent trip to the restaurant just a few weeks ago. The broth is no longer as good as before. It is now heavy in MSG and the flavour is almost similar to the broth of a soulless instant noodle/ramen. It’s no longer worth the price that you’re paying. 🙁
