Menya Kamikaze @ 1 Mont Kiara, KL
Thick chunks of roasted pork and super rich pork broth.
Oh, so yummy!!!
Opened up their business not too long ago, Menya Kamikaze has become patrons’ attention in this mall. During meal time, this ramen place is always packed. Sometimes there is a short queue too. Their menu is pretty straight forward. They are serving ramen (noodles) and gohan (rice) and some appetizer such as gyoza, edamame, fried stuff to munch on while waiting for the mains.
Pork Soup Ramen Kamikaze (Rm 22)
Huge bowl of ramen, served with 2 pieces of roasted pork, an egg, spring onion, onion, bamboo shoots, black fungus and seaweed. They are pretty generous in the serving portion. The roasted pork slices were really thick, with the melt-in-mouth texture that we went ohhh-ed and ahhh-ed after each mouthful of pork we had. As for the soup base, it was quite different from the other ramen joints. This one in Menya Kamikaze was very thick, rich and flavourful; and less MSG (as we didn’t find ourselves thirsty all night long).
Tokyo Soy Sauce Ramen (Rm 19) with touches of ground black pepper on your own.
Shoyu base soup with thinner strand of ramen, served with roasted pork, Japanese leek, spring onion, bamboo shoots, black fungus, egg, seaweek and pok choi. This is highly recommended by the chef and yes, it is my favourite among all I have tried. The soup was lighter than their pork soup base but definitely thicker and richer than all other places’ shoyu base ramen. I love how thin strand of noodles work in here; by adsorbing the essence of soupy broth. What you need to do next, slurp up the ramen in one go! That’s the exact way to enjoy the flavourful ramen.
Spicy Pork Soup Ramen (Rm 19)
Thicker strand of ramen, served with roasted pork, chilli oil, onion, bamboo shoots, black fungus, and seaweed. A nice touch of chilli oil in the thick pork broth; not overly spicy and it gave an extra ohmmp to the soup. Definitely cater for those who love spicy dish. Dose in more Japanese chilli flakes if you fancy spicier version.
Extra noodles (Rm 4) for us (4 of us sharing 3 bowls) and we polished clean the soup too. The soup bases were tooooooo good!
Don’t forget add in the yummy fried garlic that will fragrance the ramen and twist the flavours!
Having tried a few ramen joints such as Yamagoya Ramen, Ippudo Ramen, Menya Musahi, Marutama Ramen, my all-time favourite is always Menya Musashi. But now, this has topped my ramen list, for its shoyu soup base with thinner strand of ramen, the huge chunks of roasted pork and the super rich and creamy pork broth! Yummy!!! If I were to given a choice for selection of noodles, I will pick the thinner strand one that works great in the ramen broth. Slurrrpppp.
