Tokyo Ramen

After reading that PH highly recommend the ramen at Tokyo Ramen, we made our way there during the long weekend and tried three types of ramen broth - Miso (Miso added to Tonkotsu broth), Tonkotsu and Dragon (Miso broth with added spiciness).

Special Miso Ramen as recommended by PH - MYR27.90++ which comes to MYR32.53 nett after adding 10% service charge and 6% GST. Very delicious, we can taste the pork bone broth beneath the miso taste and a bit of shoyu taste. Value for money too as an onsen egg and bamboo shoots are included by default.

The pork slices are thick too.

We ordered a mini Tonkotsu ramen set for MYR16++ (MYR18.66 nett) which comes with a small bowl of rice and three pieces of fried chicken. The Tonkotsu broth is very flavourful with the smokiness of pork bone but it is not as salty as the miso broth so it is suitable for people who could not take salty food.

The other set we ordered is the mini Dragon set for MYR16++ (MYR18.66 nett) which includes a mini don (rice) and we chose to have a bowl of sake mentai (salmon and roe) rice from the various rice bowl choices. The Dragon broth is superb for people who like spicy broth - the broth has a wonderful fragrance of roasted chilli that puts this as the winner of the 3 types of broth that we ordered.

The sake mentai is on the salty side as expected since the mentai is supposed to be salty.

A close up view of the mini bowl of Dragon Ramen. Lots of ingredients. 

Size comparison. We also ordered two portions of green tea which was served in two small tea pots - MYR2.90++ per portion (MYR3.38 nett).

Total bill is MYR76.60 nett for 4 pax.

Tokyo Ramen is now our to-go-to-Ramen-eatery. Thanks PH for recommending this.

  1. Miso ramen in Tongkotsu? What about the vegetarians? It must be an explosion of flavours on the taste bud. The broth looks very thick. Apart from egg, noodle and pork, what else was in the ramen?

    1. Don't think this shop caters for vegetarian. Leeks, beansprouts, bamboo shoots, corn niblets.

  8. that mini tonkotsu ramen with rice and fried chicken looks like a 'huge meal'...and kinda weird with eating rice+ramen in one meal...so full of carb....But at RM18.66 is very worthwhile coz got fried chicken summore...

    2. Am I missing something out, maybe I haven't tasted the better ramen and that one trip cannot determine whether I should or should not like ramen

    3. Like PH, she only starts liking ramen after eating this one which is very vety nice. It is the broth that makes the difference.

    1. Eat all three types of broth to see which one you like best.

    2. I always scared the miso one will be too salty. And if I'm paying top dollar for good ramen, I don't want the chilli to overwhelm the good stuff. :)

    3. If you are used to eating salty food the miso onw won't be too salty. Order mini bowls just to test. Thr chilli one is not overwhelming too.
