Hot Green Tea, RM2.50 a cup
The tea was thick and pleasant, not too astringent; loved the hot brew on a cold day like today
Rising Ramen Special, RM15.00
Aka Ramen, RM16.00
D had the original ramen, while I had the one with the spicy red broth. Well, I must say that I loved the texture of the noodles - it wasn't that springy, yet it was not too soft and mushy. It was just right. The portion was also reasonable - not too much and not too little, just nice for one person.
A very important part of the noodles is the broth. It was rich in taste, and with a slightly tangy aftertaste, probably from the use of spicy fermented soy beans to flavour the broth. However, I couldn't help but notice that the broth did not give off any aroma, like Santouka ramen did. It was also not hot enough for me (though I wondered if there was a reason for that??) ... I like my broth to burn my lips and tongue ... lol ....
The thinly sliced charshu was very nice - soft and melted in the mouth, while the crunch from the thinly shredded black fungus added texture to the whole dish.
Overall, not bad a dining experience here .... both D and I tucked into our noodles happily .... :))
