Rising Ramen

Rising Ramen, situated at Precinct 88 at Jalan Song, is known to serve Osaka-style pork broth ramen. D and I was there for lunch .... I opted to sit outside as it seemed rather dark indoors.

 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 .... :))


  1. Wow! They looked yummy. Is this a franchise restaurant?

    I had only tried Ippudo and Ajisen Ramen for pork based broth but I preferred the latter over the former although the former is more famous.

  2. I don't think it's a franchise, but the owners are Japanese. I've not tried Ippudo, but I was not too impressed with Ajisen. I've tried Santouka, though .... and the fragrance of the broth knocked me over! Read here :

    1. We don't have any ramen restaurant here in Brunei as the demand is not high as the majority population are Muslim. But we do have a Western cafe that serve dishes with pork.

      I think I would give this ramen restaurant in Kuching a try the next time I go back. I find going around Kuching is hard especially if you do not have transportation.

  3. Another ramen restaurant here in Kuching would be Sando Ramen. There are two outlets in Kuching. I haven't tried the ramen there myself, though my cousin says it's good. I really must find time to do so soon. :))
