Taro Ramen (太朗ラーメン)

Posted by: Wen Ching In: Japanese Food

After fixing my computer at Low Yat Plaza, we were already starving to death. We were carrying heavy parts with us and we have no choice but to dine in the restaurants in the lower ground floor.

After looking around, we decided to try Taro Ramen out since we haven’t tried it before. Taro Ramen is located near Old Town White Coffee Café.

The restaurant is quite clean and pleasant but there weren’t many customers, it was about 9pm when we arrived there.

We ordered a iced lemon tea (アイステイー) for RM3.50. The green tea on the left was part of the kimchi yakiniku set below.

Priced at RM16.90, the kimchi yakiniku set (キムチ焼肉セット) includes a main course of fried pork with Kimchi, vegetables and steamed rice, a miso soup, few slices of watermelon and a cup of green tea. The Kimchi Yakiniku came out to be more delicious than we expect, the pork was tender and juicy, while the kimchi gave the pork a slightly sourish and spicy taste, making it very appetising and tasty. The miso soup was good too, the soup was flavourful and many ingredients were served. We really think this set is worth the price and the taste was excellent!

Since this restaurant is serving ramen as its main, of course we could not leave here without a having a bowl of ramen. We had a spicy ramen (スパイシーラーメン) for RM13.90 since it was a recommended dish and we love spicy food. The ramen look very spicy when served, but when eaten, it wasn’t that spicy. The serving was large with large servings of sesame chicken but the soup was somehow too oily for us.

Service was quite average and it was a satisfying meal overall. But we don’t think we would revisit this restaurant for quite some time. There’re still lots of ramen noodle restaurant out there waiting for us!

J2kfm, there’s another outlet in Sungei Wang, but other than that, we’re not too sure. Yeah, there’re quite an amount of restaurants at lower ground floor, do check them out!

Ai Wei, yeah, you’re so right about this. We do love spicy food. You seem so busy lately, hope to hang out with you soon!

Squall, yeah, it looks spicy but it doesn’t taste as spicy as it looks.

Mimi, haha, yeah, it’s a little too oily to our liking too.

Kampungboycitygal, if you ask us, we think the ramen looks too red. Perhaps other ramen would be better, but do check the kimchi yakiniku set out.

Ling239, sorry, we’re not too sure about that.

Tankiasu, yeah, there’re lots of Japanese and Korean restaurants mushrooming in Klang Valley lately. Haha, yeah, how to get your contact?

Christine, the ramen would be good if it’s not oily. Maybe you can try something else like kimchi ramen.

Nic (khkl), haha, that’s funny! Yeah, not very good for ramen. We love ramen too but we have no idea where’s good for ramen.

Simon Seow, so Nic and us will be waiting for your post to see where’s good for ramen! :)

Jason, maybe you can try their kimchi yakiniku set some day. But the spicy ramen that we had wasn’t that good.

Little inbox, for us, it’s a little too oily. Maybe you can try some other hot ramen. :)
