It’s noodle mania that has caught on and spread throughout the earth like wild fire!

What is it about a simple bowl of noodles that evokes such passion, or inspires such loyal gastronomic devotion as do the Ramen and the Udon. At a glance, it looks like such a simple, humble meal  – a bowl of noodles in broth with toppings. However, sometimes the simplest things are the best and often the hardest to perfect. Take for example a hot bowl of udon. Do we know what went into making these long strands of chewy noodles? Do we know how long it takes to cook it just right so that it is does not come out mushy or too soft that it is unpalatable?

No, often we just slurp it up and say, “Thank God for this awesome bowl of Udon!”


The house special udon

Here at Marufuku, I love the Udon because the wheat-flour noodles that they use are noted for their strong body and smooth texture. As this is the sister restaurant to Sanuki Udon, they make the noodles starting from scratch at Sanuki and send it over to Marufuku.

The basic way of eating Udon is simply to pour a kelp-based soup seasoned with light soy sauce over the noodles. Spring onion, leeks, ginger, egg or sesame seeds can be added if desired. The thing that I am addicted to most is the cold udon – the House Special Udon. Simple, uncluttered – totally hits the spot. I like it cold because it means that the udon will be more chewy than if it were served hot.


Nabeyaki Udon


breaking fast by breaking the yolk..


There are many varieties of toppings, including seafood or vegetable tempura, or even a meaty curry sauce, so you can enjoy various combinations with your udon.


An extensive selection of Yakitori – skewered BBQed meats, Karaage -also known as Tatsutaage, the Japanese fried chicken and Kakiage ebi to feast upon.


Yakitori at RM2-3 per stick. What a deal!

  3. Yummy… looking back at these pictures makes me wanna return to Marufuku but fast! I love the Nabeyaki Udon that I had that day! 😀

  4. Vege tempura! Yum……… It’s nearly lunch time, and I’m having a cravings for udon! :) You are that good girl. :)

  6. When feeling uptight or stressed, eat the ‘Bouncy’ Udon at Marufuku- so much better than jumping in a Bouncy Castle

  7. and now you make me crave for that excellent udon! boo!!! :p

  8. yay for yakitori! i think i could single-handedly (single-mouthedly?) eat 30 sticks! 😀

  9. Udon and ramen are super popular in NYC now too! Especially in the Japanese area of the East Village, by St. Marks. Great photos, as usual :)

  10. Oh i love your opening shot! It’s so gorgeous. To die for.

  11. Love that first photo of the egg on noodles, my favorite way to eat pasta.

  12. Love the texture of the udon at Sanuki, Marufuku definitely nearer for me :)

  13. This time I have to say My favorit picture is the one of you at the corner. Looks so cute like a sticker picture. I love Undo.. and the soup warms you up in a cold chilly days now.

  14. To answer your questions. The udon is made from all natural ingredients and lots of heart work :)

  15. I read many wonderful reviews about this restaurant. I’ll have to wait till I visit Malaysia soon. Lets hook up for lunch or dinner when I’m down? I’m drooling now!

  16. Not a big fan of Japanese cuisine (I prefer Chinese), but this really looks good. I guess I need to try some top notch Japanese food and I will change my mind :)

  17. Marufuku’s 2nd outlet @ Taylors University ( is now open. This location is very breezy as there is a nice lake next to it. Perfect for a relaxing week nights’ dinner and weekends’ getaway. We are open daily from 10 to 10. Come and enjoy a simple bowl of udon with the lake view. Am sure you will love it. Ample car parking space as well. (We are close on 19th and 26th for minor reno work.)

  18. We have are still at Jaya One but move to unit 65-G, Block D, Palm Square. Same row with Maxwell and Postcode.
