Yamagoya Ramen is a franchised Kyushu-styled Ramen (noodle soup) from Japan. Kyushu is Japan’s third largest island and most southwesterly of its four main island, and is famous for its hearty noodle soups made with pork bones. To date Yamagoya Ramen has over 140 franchised outlets in Japan. Yamagoya Ramen in Publika, Solaris Dutamas is the first original Kyushu ramen in Malaysia. Please note that this is a strictly non-halal restaurant as their soup is pork based.
Ramen Making Machine
- Freshly made ramen -
Sitting right at the entrance, you will see this ramen making machine. They make fresh ramen daily. Too bad I missed out the ramen making time. Otherwise, I could personally witness the making of ramen :3
On every table, there are a set of condiments for you to add extra flavour into the ramen at your own desire and tastes.
- Sesame seeds grinder -
- Shredded pickled ginger, chili oil and shoyu -
Seldom find Japanese restaurants which actually sets a jar of pickled ginger. Shows how generous they are here
Drinks ranges from RM2 to RM16. Apart from tea, soft drinks, juices and special drinks, Yamagoya Ramen also serves Draft Asahi and Carlsberg beer. Of course, there’s Sake and Syouchu too.
This is a special Japanese drink. Calpis Soda is a Japanese uncarbonated soft drink which has a light milky and slightly acidic flavor. It is somewhat similar to plain yogurt drink.
This is a fresh and thirst quenching cucumber juice.
The typical drink one would order in any Japanese restaurant.
This is the first time I had Mugi-Cha, barley tea. It tastes different from Ocha and cold Mugi-Cha is thoroughly refreshing with a hint of sweetness which is not from sugar.
There are a wide variety of Ramen here, ranging from RM15 to RM24. As this is Kyushu-styled ramen, the soup is generally pork broth. Delicious thick porkie broth – I likey~
Yamagoya’s Mukashi Special Ramen is their famous and signature dish. The Ramen consists of freshly made Ramen served with Pork char siu (sliced roasted pork), Yamagoya Soy Sauced Egg, bamboo shoot, black fungus, beansprouts, nori (seaweed sheet), garnished with fried garlic and spring onions.
Love this. It’s like everything in a bowl! Eggs, porkie, bamboo shoot…slurps! Plus, the soup is not very oily.
Yamagoya Ramen is similar with Mukashi Special Ramen only less special – no Yamagoya Soy Sauced Egg and nori. :3
Miso Ramen is similar to Yamagoya Ramen, but the soup is different as it is miso is added into the broth. Hence, the taste is much heavier and more salty. As you see from its colour, it’s slightly darker in brown and towards orange. Personally, this is not to my liking as I find it very salty.
Black Garlic Ramen is definitely not for vampires. The soup has strong garlic fragrant and taste. This is definitely for the garlic lovers. I find this fragrantful and rather delicious despite that there are so much garlicness in it.
The Spicy Tobanjan Ramen looks like Yamagoya Ramen served with a “ball” of tobanjan (hot bean sauce). With tobanjan mixed with the ramen, the whole bowl of ramen was spiced up and tasted so much nicer! (if you love spicy food)
My utmost favourite ramen of all <3
Kimchi Ramen is also similar with Yamagoya Ramen just with additional Kimchi in it.
I love kimchi and thus, I find this pretty good. Only drawback is that the Kimchi taste was not zheng enough. Too mild =x
When you mix the kimchi into the ramen, kimchi went mild HOWEVER, throw me the Tonbanjan and I’ll say this is fab!
Char Siu Ramen is for those who absolutely just love meat only. There’s nothing else in this bowl except for the many slices of Char Siu and ramen. Seeing this, I know my brother would enjoy this without having to fuss over any veggies in it.
There are like 7 to 8 slices of Char Siu here.
Char Siu galore!
The Yamagoya Soy Sauced Egg is boiled egg marinated in soy sauce. That’s why the outer egg white is slightly brownish. The egg is unlike the hard boiled egg we normally get, the egg yolk is soft and creamy. So, when you pop this into your mouth, you don’t need to chew. Just let it melt….
Gyoza is Japanese pan-fried dumplings with meat fillings inside. I like eating Gyoza with lotsa vinegar and ginger slices. The crispy outer and juicy tender filling is what I look forward the most.
Tender succulent juicy filling *drools*
Yamagoya’s Fried Chicken is a must have here. Superbly crispy and delicious with lemon juice and mayo!
If you could not get enough of Char Siu there is in the ramen, order a plate of it and savour it till you’re satisfied!
Seeing this as I type this makes my stomach growls and I wish to have a slice of this baby now!
And yes, what do you know. Yamagoya Ramen has WIFI and you can take pichas of your food and share them with your friends who missed out on this goodness.
I know you are as you’re reading this. Teehee!
