Ramen Kanbe, Empire Damansara Smile Jun 24, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Japanese | Restaurant | Seafood | Ramen/Udon/Soba

Ramen, is often associated with the creamy Tonkotsu soup base here in Malaysia. I do love ramen a lot, especially the rich, flavourful Tonkotsu soup base ramen. But sometimes I crave for a change, like shoyu-based ramen or miso-based ramen.

Which is why I am glad to have discovered Ramen Kanbe, a Ramen shop in Empire Damansara specialising in shoyu-based ramen.

 
Nestled behind Epique Coffee, Ramen Kanbe is hidden from the one's eyes at the Heritage Lane. Ramen Kanbe is only accessible via the outdoor area of Empire Damansara. Just head towards DPAC's direction and walk along the shops area and you'll spot Ramen Kanbe.

Owned by G7, a fully Japanese company, Ramen Kanbe sets to bring the culinary trend from Kobe, Japan, here to Malaysia.

 
The interior of Ramen Kanbe is pretty simple & humble. One can peep through the kitchen to see the chefs in action through the bar counter that separates the dining area & kitchen.

Ramen Kanbe offers limited choices of Ramen & Rice dishes, to ensure the quality and taste of all its dishes are maintained & uphold.Wantan Ramen RM21

Ramen served with lean cut of Char Siew, Wantan, Bean Sprouts, Black Fungus & Scallions

 
The shoyu-base soup consist of a fine blend of Japan's finest soy sauce combined with high-quality kombu kelp from Hokkaido, simmered with vegetables and chicken for more than 7 hours to produce a full-bodied, robust & flavourful shoyu soup base.

The soup was refreshing and flavourful, a respite from the usual creamy & rich tonkotsu broth. A rather simple yet comforting dish that leaves me feeling guilt-free & not leave me feeling "jelak" after the meal.

 
Noodles are made from scratch here, using the finest ingredients.

 
Spicy Ramen RM21

Minced meat & scallion in a spicy broth.

The Spicy Ramen contents the right amount of spiciness and "kick". I found the broth wonderfully flavourful.

 
Boiled Egg RM3

 
Karage RM10

Deep fried breaded chicken served with shredded cabbage and mayo. The chicken is brined in shoyu before deep-fried. Crispy on the outside, soft and tender on the inside. A perfect side dish to go along with our ramen. Only qualm was that we find the karage tad too salty.

 
Fried Rice RM12

Ramen Kanbe's own signature Japanese fried rice. The fried rice here is cooked till soft so expect a mushier texture. Each grain was packed with flavours but my friends thought that the dish was a little too salty.

 
Tenshin-Han Rice RM15

Egg-wrapped rice served with Ramen Kanbe's signature shoyu gravy.The shoyu gravy is the same as the shoyu broth used in the ramen.

 
The creamy omelette went well with the fluffy Japanese rice & flavourful soy sauce. A simple comfort food which all of us unanimously thought that it was the best dish here at Ramen Kanbe.

 
Pork Rice RM17

Japanese rice topped with generous amount of pork cooked with ginger and scallion. I was taken aback by the amount of meat served on this dish! The dish tasted rather Chinese to me. But nevertheless, it was a comforting and satisfying dish.Verdict: A healthier version of ramen, simple & comforting Japanese food. A fresh respite from the usual tonkotsu base soup.

Delicious Pork Burger Smile Jan 18, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Western variety | Bar & Pub | Burgers / Sandwiches

Boyfriend & I were craving for burgers to make up for the large amount of calorie burned in the day time, and we wanted to try out something new. A simple google search brought us to this new burger joint located in the foodie-place-saturated, SS15.

 
Cowboy Burger! Cowboy Burger is located at the same row as Home Made Fish Head Noodle Shop (Diagonally Opposite Gastro Cafe). It was easy to be spot thanks to its bright red signage.

 
The restaurant was really dimly lit, giving it a mysterious feel, I didn't know what to expect (other than burgers lol). It was 9pm but the cafe was abuzz with activities. We decided to sit at one of the tall round table as it sort of reminds me of a saloon bar in a cowboy movie =D. The interior was rather simple & minimal, with some Western Cowboy elements incorporated into it.

 
Like the walls- Wanted sign & wooden plank wall wallpaper plastered all over it. Perhaps it's for the shop to paste the faces of people who attempted to skip the bill? =b

 
And their little Maneki Neko, wearing an oversize cowboy hat.

Pork Burgers, Beef Burgers, Chicken Burgers, and even Vegetarian Burgers! The myriad selection of burgers was impressive! Besides that if burgers aren't your "thing" you could order the hot dogs or main dishes such as pasta, fish & chips & so much more!

All their burgers come with a side of French Fries & Salad! =)

 
Mushroom Piggy Burger RM14.80
Char-grilled Pork Patties topped with melted Cheddar, sauteed mushrooms & creamy mushroom sauce.

Just look at the generous toppings of the burger! I was "forced" to use the cutleries as it'd be too messy if I used my hands.

I started off from the mushroom. The mushroom were perfectly sauteed in cream sauce. Creamy & juicy, I thought that the mushroom could be a perfect side dish on its own.
Further dissection leads to the juicy & well-seasoned pork patty. Infused with the melted cheddar & creamy mushroom sauce, the patty was literally bursting with flavour.

 
Their Thick-Cut Fries, were superb. It was perfectly seasoned with herbs & spice. It was really addictive, and I actually finished all the fries, which was something not so common for me, unless the fries are super good OR its burger lab's.

However, the fries were tad salty. We told the boss about it when he asked for our feedback. He apologized sincerely and explained that they tossed their fries for seasoning in the same bowl for the whole night so the saltiness got a little too intense at the end of the night.

Their homemade orange sauce deserves a credit too. It was actually Wasabi Mayo sauce! The taste of wasabi, infused with the tangy mayo, and furthered seasoned with herbs & spice, minus the after effect of "spiciness-rushing-to-nose". The sauce complements the fries perfectly and I finished it till the very last drop =)

 
Signature Piggy Burger RM18.80
Char-grilled Pork Patty, topped with Natural Cheddar Cheese, Fried Eggs, Home-made Black Pepper Bacon, Grilled Tomatoes, Leafy Greens & drenched in their cowboy classic sauce.

One word. AMAZING.

For the price paid, I think this burger was really worth it as the ingredients & topping were really generous. The condiments & fillings just came together so perfectly. One bite and I was mesmerized. The chewy & savoury bacon, the juicy pork patty infused with creamy cheddar & their signature sauce, awesome fried egg, and leafy green to keep the whole burger well-balanced- this burger is the bomb.

Overall Rating: 8/10
Their Pork Patty is certainly one of the best I've ever tried. Service was pleasant & inviting, the waiters & boss always have their smiles on. Cowboy Burger is definitely a place where I'd be returning soon!

Potion for a good health Smile Aug 16, 2016   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Stall / Warung | Juices & Smoothies / Bubble Tea / Tea

With the rise of healthy eating regime, more and more cold press fruit juice shop have been mushrooming around Klang Valley. Everyone seems to acknowledge the benefits and nutrients a cold press juice have. However, there's a barrier to enjoying a nice cold bottle of cold-press juice, that is the PRICE. Potion Factory is the solution to this barrier, selling cold-press juice at a really affordable price! 

Unlike conventional juice, cold-press juice is juiced, well, cold, which retains most of the nutrients in the juice. Potion Factory juices are served without sugar and perservatives! 

I tried out three different "Potions", Health, Life and Ice Potion.

My favaourite would be the Ice Potion: a blend of guava, apple, lime and chia seed. Refreshing and sweet on its own! The Health Potion is another noteworthy juice, featuring a blend of beetroot, apple, lemon and ginger - not for the faint heart as some may find the ginger taste tad strong, but I'm definitely loving it!

Categories : Stall / Warung | Ice Cream / Froyo / Gelato

 
Located at LG floor, Loewe & Son offers a variety of local & also foreign ice-cream & sorbet flavours. Durian, Coconut flavour, Jackfruit flavour, Passion Fruit Sorbet, just to name a few.

Loewe & Son has another branch at Sunway Pyramid too.

 

 

 
After trying out a few flavours, I decided to settle for coconut flavour. Simple, smooth and not overly sweet, a nice dessert to savour on. Each scoop of ice-cream is priced at RM9.90. Ice-cream cake is available too!

Delightful HK Snacks! Smile Aug 16, 2016   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Stall / Warung | Sweets/Snack

 
Daan Daan is a food kiosk located on the 1st floor of Evolve Concept Mall specialising in Hong Kong street snacks such as egg waffles and milk tea.

 
The menu at Daan Daan - Daan Daan only offers waffles & drinks for now. However, from a chat with Daan Daan owner I learnt that he is planning to expand Daan Daan to (hopefully) two new branches at Genting Highland & Subang Parade, where he plans to offer more food items such as curry fish ball, another HK delight.

 
Egg waffle and Milk Tea & Yin Yang (Coffee & Tea mix) 

 
Delightfully addictive! The egg waffle is a must-try at Daan Daan - One can't have enough of this crispy on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside egg waffle. Best consumed when hot! 

 
The waffle offered at Daan Daan has a slightly different texture compared to the western-styled waffles you usually have in a cafe. Daan Daan's waffle has a crustier exterior, and is served with a generous slab of peanut butter. Perfect for peanut butter fans.
