Gantetsu Hokkaido Ramen

When we want to eat Ramen in One Utama, we always eat at Menya Musashi, a Ramen Specialty Eatery. Here is another time we ate there. This time, the place where Menya Musashi used to be located, has been boarded up for renovation so we ate at the Ramen Specialty Eatery next to it which is Gantetsu Hokkaido Ramen located in Eat Paradise, Isetan, One Utama.

We ordered a Hokkaido King Tonkotsu ramen set at MYR32.90++ which is MYR38.36 nett after adding in 10% service charge and 6% GST. This set consists of a bowl of King Tonkotsu Ramen, a cup of green tea and a plate of 3 gyoza. There are only 3 slices of pork with a wide rim of fat and skin which we did not eat. We prefer the Ramen from Ramen Bankara to this ramen.

The 3 gyoza 

Thin skin.

I ordered a plate of deep fried prawns (5 prawns) at MYR15.50++ (MYR18.07 nett) because I could not finish a bowl of Ramen on my own. Therefore I did not order any ramen for myself.

View from another angle

The batter is quite thick but crispy.

  1. There appear to be an image of a face on the toppings of the ramen. The egg halves represent the eyes, the pork slices represent the hair and the cheek in the rest of the toppings.

    I like the look of the gyoza.

    1. I recommend eating ramen at specialty ramen shop, not just any Japanese shops.

  4. I was there about 3 weeks ago. Also wanted to go to Menya Musashi but ended up at Gantetsu. I was not impressed :(

  5. "There are only 3 slices of pork"? Normally how many slices would be considered good enough? Hmm, so far I have only ever gotten 2 or 3 slices of pork in all the ramens that I ever had. So I thought 3 is normal and not only. Hmmm... have I been missing out all these years???

    2. So wouldn't 3 pieces be "a lot" instead of "only"? :P

    2. He likes it. I ate the 'lam mee' from another stall. So many people, have to quickly order and the aircon room is full. Have to sit outside.

    3. Good to hear that he likes it. I always sit at the non-aircon seats still within the shop.

    1. Gyoza is not that "heaty" since it is only pan fried and not deep fried.
