Hokkaido Santouka Ramen

Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, one of KL’s biggest shopping centers has officially opened its doors to its newest iconic precinct and tourist destination called, Tokyo Street. Situated on Level 6, Tokyo Street is a themed precinct alongside Centre Court, Connection, Couture Pavilion, Gourmet Emporium and Seventh Heaven. This place offers shoppers a 360-degree retail experience with a vibrant mix of Japanese F&B, retail and service brands. Toyko Street is inspired by Asakusa (a district in Japan that possesses both a traditional, as well as urban cosmopolitan feel), and it reminds me of the ever changing consumer fashion trends and lifestyle in Tokyo. This space is definitely dedicated to Japan’s high fashion, gourmet cuisine and cutting edge home ware. If I didn’t know any better, I would say I just landed on the streets of Tokyo.

Anyway, here we are, at the pre-launch of Hokkaido Santouka Ramen – one of the eateries located within Tokyo street. This place specialises in Ramen. The Shio broth is good enough—smooth with a mellow roundness, subtly flavored with a salt and chicken stock, resulting in a soup that’s tangy, salty, and savory yet still fairly light on the palate, topped off with a pickled plum. The noodles are firm and springy, cooked al dente. The fresh grilled pork floating in the broth is succulent, as are the bamboo shoots and the chopped scallions. Some of the non-ramen must-have dishes include the pork cheek(jowl) charshu, the deep fried chicken and the gyoza.
