Japanese Udon!! Who never tasted this thick Japanese wheat flour noodles? You have got to be kidding me! Anyway, there is this newly opened self service Japanese Udon restaurant called Manmaru Homemade Udon. It is located at the second floor (just above Madam Kwan, East Court) in Mid Valley Megamall. Went for a good slurp at Manmaru few nights ago and I already have my favourite udon from the menu
Manmaru’s udons are freshly made daily using top quality wheat flour imported from Japan. There are varieties of broth, fresh ingredients and condiments to choose from based on your preference. It’s like creating your very own bowl of udon.
From the entrance, you get to see how your fresh udon is made and catch a glimpse of the preparation of ingredients being added into each bowl of udon. This is where the queue starts. There’s a menu at the top of “open kitchen” and while waiting for your turn, you make your decision on what you’d like to have your udon soup-based or cold and the type of soup base you want.
Once your order is taken, the chef will prepare your udon according to your desired broth and ingredients. You can also choose favourite side dish, tempura and complete your meal with a drink. At the end of the queue is the cashier where you will be charged based on the items you have taken.
There are many side orders to choose from and they are priced from RM2 onwards.
Top Left to Right: Mixed Tempura, Yasai Kakiage Tempura (mix vegetables) @ RM1.80
Bottom Left to Right: Enoki Tempura @ RM1.50, Ebi Tempura (Prawn) @ RM3.80, Chicken Wing Karaage @ RM2.80, Tori Karaage (Chicken) @ RM2.00, White Fish Tempura @ RM3.00, Ika Karaage (Squid) @ RM3.30
Tempuras are from RM1.50 onwards. So many varieties!
緑茶（アイス) Green Tea (Cold) @ RM1.50 &
アロエベラキング（オリジナル/ピーチ）OKF Aloe Vera King (original/Peach) 240ml @ RM3.90
Refreshing drinks to quench your thirst! The Aloe Vera drinks are very yummy and only available in this outlet.
Before heading to table and start digging into your personalised udon, there are 2 counters to stop by for the cutleries and condiments.
Basically, it’s like an udon tour and enjoy the thick and chewy wheat noodles in your favourite broth. There are 10 types of udon to choose:
If you’re a fan of Japanese curry, you’ll absolutely love this. The curry is rich and thick, being Japanese curry, it’s not very spicy and goes very well with the udon.
If you’re not a fan of Japanese Udon, give this Kimchi Udon a try. It might change your perception towards Japanese Udon. I like the Kimchi based soup here as it is really concentrated and has the hot and sour kick! Best of all, Manmaru doesn’t stinge on the Kimchi!
カケうどん Kake Udon (Large: RM10.90 | Small : RM8.90)
This is the classic udon in soy based soup. Very simple and tasty.
My favourite udon among all has to be this Niku Udon. Served in clear udon soup and topped with thinly sliced beef and green spinach. All my favourites in a bowl.
This is a fusionised version of Japanese udon. Imagine having carbonara with udon instead of pasta. This is the impression I had while slurping the Cream Corn Udon. The beauty of this udon is that the cream corn is tasty and not too rich and creamy, so, you won’t feel satiated/jelak after eating it.
A very unique Japanese udon which we don’t get everyday. Simply pull out the udon from the bucket and dip into the kamaage sauce before eating it. This is how the Japanese love to eat their udon.
The Kamo Seiro Udon and Zaru Udon are both cold and dipping udon. Best eaten on a hot weather, just like how the Japanese would enjoy these cold udons.
ぶっかけうどん Bukake Udon (Large: RM11.90 | Small: RM9.90)
Cold udon dash with thick fish broth.
The Ume Udon is a refreshing udon served with pickled plum. For first timers, it is recommended to add the Ume (plum) which is on the seaweed, moderately and up to your taste. This gives a tasty and sourish flavours to the udon and really appetizing.
Create your own udon from RM8.90 (Kake Udon), add some side dish like Tamago and Tempura.
If you’re looking for authentic Japanese cuisine, yummy yet affordable, this is just the place for you.
