Marutaman Ra-Men @ Empire Gallery

Been to Empire Gallery for dinner recently, always been cracking head what to have for dinner, been tangling around to look for nice food, so I saw lots of people queue-ing till the outside shop entrance. Wondering why, walked closer, found out there this newly open Japanese restaurant called Marutama Ra-Men landed in Empire Mall a few months ago if i'm not mistaken.

I'm thinking, it must be good otherwise, wont be long queue. Joining the crowd, after decided to makan here with friends. While queuing up, I been digging up some of the history of this restaurant from them. What I knew from friends, this is the second branch in Empire Gallery Subang Jaya after the main branch in Fahrenheit 88, Jalan Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur.

As soon as we seated, we were given menu for orders. Once opening up, oh it's about Ra-Men. I can see plenty of varieties of Ra-Men that you can choose from the menu. Where should I begin? For starters, a basic bowl of Marutama Ra-Men with a slice roast, seaweed and chopped spring onions cost RM18. Anything fancier and it could go up to RM20.00++. Additional toppings are priced individually. Not exactly a friendly price for a bowl of noodles, but worth every cent spent.

Marutama Ramen RM18

The piping hot bowl of Ra-Men is the best comfort food during rainy days. The broth, made of chicken was very flavourful, and nicely balanced by the abundant spring onions and seaweed. The originality of the taste reflected their claim of using one chicken for every two bowls of Ramen.

Char Siu Tamago Ramen RM26

I ordered myself Char Siu Tamago Ra-Men cost RM26. Chicken broth with four slices of roast pork, seaweed, spring onions and a seasoned Tamago. How could one simple hard-boiled egg be so good? It’s in the yolk baby, delightful Tamgo egg. The slices of roast pork made us chewy, as the fat literally melt in the mouth. Don't know my taste bud slightly different from usual, I tasted the soup too salty but I give second try when my taste bud recover back to normal. Drinks are refillable when you ordered green tea only, worth to try it out.  Happy eating!! =)
