Date of Visit: May 3 2015
I (or rather, my mom) had finally found the best ramen in Pavilion! 😄
The joint is on Level 6, in the Tokyo Street Precinct. I would say it is pricey (price for a regular sized bowl starts at RM32, add an extra RM4 to upgrade to large) but the quality is well worth it. First, the broth did not leave an after taste – proving that no MSG was added. The bone broth was cooked and simmered away for ages to a milky creamy consistency as shown in Exhibit A below.
Note: Eat the preserved plum first to get your saliva glands working. The puckering sourness will heighten the sweetness of the bone broth!
Exhibit B was spicy but not too spicy for me. I did find the broth on the salty side, but that is because I am that person who never season food with salt (thus a low sodium reading in my blood test). I should concur then, the saltiness is within reasonable standard for the normal mortals!
There are set meals available including cold ramen, sushi and rice sets. No doubt a revisit is in order with a longer post forthcoming!
Name of the joint is: Hokkaido Ramen Santouka, find it on FB here
