Yamagoya Ramen (山小屋) – 2nd Post
Posted by: Wen Ching In: Japanese Food
There are many Ramen places which we have visited so far but there are only a handful that we revisit. One of them is Yamagoya Ramen, which we liked a lot. This was our third visit and it was an invited review by Alvin, the Assistant General Manager of Yamagoya Ramen.
As we’ve introduced in our first post, Yamagoya is a branch of a famous chain from Kyushu, Japan. Their best-selling ramen was their Mukashi Special Ramen (昭和ラーメン). Served with slices of Char Siu, bamboo shoots, beansprouts, ear fungus, spring onions and semi-hard boiled egg, the Ramen was delicious. One of the things that we loved about Yamagoya is their egg, it was so simple yet so delicious.
This time around, we tried something new which was their Black Garlic Ramen (黒マ―油ラーメン). Priced at RM22, this bowl of Ramen is served with slices of Char Siu, beansprouts, ear fungus and spring onions. The Black Garlic Ramen has a very strong garlic taste, those who like your soup to be strong and garlicky, do check this Ramen out!
We also got a chance to sample two new items on their menu. First, we had their Chanpon (ちゃんぽん) which was priced at RM28. It was our first time having a Japanese version Chanpon, we usually have the Korean one instead. Yamagoya’s version was served with generous prawns, fish cakes, squids and vegetables.
However, if served with their curry, it would be an excellent combination. We thought Yamagoya’s Curry (カレー) was excellent, very thick and flavourful with a tinge of sourness which made the curry very appetising and addictive. It was definitely one of the best curry that we’ve tried in Malaysia, we will go back for more!
We were also served with a plate of Gyoza (焼きギョウザ). Priced at RM11, we found this Gyoza to be very fresh and juicy, even better than the previous visit. A very nice side dish to go along with a Ramen meal!
It was a very pleasant and enjoyable lunch at Yamagoya with our close friends. We even received a gift from Yamagoya which was a red bean dessert from Japan, very delectable as well. We would like to thank Alvin for the warm host and also our fellow blogger Ai Wei and Kampungboycitygal for the great company! Do check this place our for good Ramen!
