Santouka Revisited

When I was in Kuala Lumpur last week, I went to Santouka again for the Japanese ramen, or to be exact, Sapporo ramen. The taste of ramen at this place is quite authentic and I like it.


During my first visit, I had the chasu ramen. I decided to go for someting more interesting this time and I order the pork-cheek shio (salt) ramen. The medium-size portion set me back RM36.00, which is not cheap by the local food standard, but reasonable compared with the price in Japan.


The noodles came in a thick pork-bone stock with some sesame seed. The salty taste was on the heavy side, just like what you'll get in Japan. The noodles were cooked to the al dente state.


The pork-cheek slices were thick-cut meat which weren't like the soft and tender chasu made from belly meat. They were more on the fibrous and chewy side. The meat was marinated with a hint of Japanese soy sauce.


It was quite a satisfying meal despite the price. However, food is getting more expensive at every corner of Malaysia.
