Japan trip 2024: 11D10N in Yamagata, Sendai, Aizu Wakamatsu & Tokyo

Peak winter has gone and spring is approaching. March, especially early March is considered a good timing to travel to Tohoku region for some snow pleasure at a comforting temperature. Also, there is lesser chance of getting heavy snow storm which causes the haywire on

Towzen

Towzen comes all the way from Kyoto; setting their first foot outside of Japan, here in Malaysia, in Menara Milenium, KL! This vegan ramen restaurant is currently the talk of the town, it is so hit that there is always a long queue at the front entrance, and diners are limited to one hour dining time (that was in Feb, not sure about now).

This restaurant is decorated in a zen-ish feel with zen looking setting inside out.

I am quite skeptical when it comes to vegetarian or vegan meal because of the fake meat or processed “meat” being used in their dishes. However, Towzen proofs me wrong; I can say Towzen changed my thinking. LOL.

Found another great stuff here in this Cheras neighbourhood!

Sarawak Mee

Located inside Dai Be Steam Fish Head Restaurant大鼻鱼头茶餐室, there hidden this new gem specialising in sarawak’s noodles – Sarawak Mee, very straight forward from its stall’s name. Sarawak Mee is relatively a new stall that pops up inside this kopitiam not too long ago.

To be honest, it is not easy to get a great bowl of Kolo Mee, Kampua Mee and Sarawak Laksa in Cheras neighbourhood. I was overjoyed when I first saw this new stall here and I came here for the Sarawak Laksa (and stole 2 forkful of the Kampua Mee from my mum) two days in a row during Chinese New Year!

Kampua Mee (Rm 9)
Very nice springy egg noodles came with very generous amount of minced meat and char siu, topped with a mixture of spring onion and fried shallots. It is also loaded with the crunchy fried pork lard and aromatic lard oil. It was so good when all were tossed in together; every mouthful was filled with the aroma of lard oil.
