Gokuraku Ramen @ Mid Valley


I can't deny the matter of fact that I love pretty much anything in soupy form. And of course, Japanese Ramen soup will be an essential work day lunch choice. What is better than a 50% discount on all Ramen dishes in this newly open Gokuraku Ramen @ Mid Valley !! The restaurant is on its second day of business and hence the promotion deal. Though the ambiance is pretty stylish, rather like a lounge but it was pack and stuffy. The wait staffs were trying hard to impress but they still mess up with the order one or two, here and there. 

Okay, I'm not so sure if ramen is the most economic noodle soup ever. Well, in fact it isn't at all !! I guess what makes a good bowl of ramen is the Tonkotsu broth. A good bowl does take significant amount of effort and timing to boil. While, to taste that bowl of goodness is very much down to a person preference. It is like Godiva chocolate as the premium and mass production Cadbury as the sub class. Both can be just ordinary chocolate to a non lover. 

To the left : Gokuraku Miso Ramen @ RM20.90 (Normal Price) - Mince meats, cabbages in Miso soup. Generous portion.
To the right : Spicy Tonkotsu Ramen @ RM17++  - A slice of Jap Char Siew, Chinese cabbages and some unknown red vegs. The taste is on the light side.
Bottom : Gyoza (Pork Dumplings) @ RM7.90 - Ordinary. 

While, this is my Ultimate Tonkotsu Ramen @ RM20.90 with 3 slices of char siew, whole egg, seaweed and vegs. I presented this bowl of goodness a very high regard. The Tonkotsu broth in fact of the best I ever tasted. It is rich and flavorful in a good sense not overly salty as some other ramen joint. The splash of garlic oil has indeed enlightened the whole dining experience. A++

Will I come back again ? I will make it an occasional savor like once in a couple of weeks to avoid extra burden on my wallet LOL !!

Well, not that good in taste, by more miso and thirst after the meal.

Ive been there twice last wk. Ramen was fine & delicious. And it is not all of the 50%. Best of all, the service mgr is super duper cool. Long shot but am trying to get his #

I have been visiting them for 3 times since. Needless to say, I enjoy their soup/broth very much. But it tends to get salty sometimes.

It is overly salty, overly oily and overly priced. Basically one of the worst I ever had. If anybody has tried ramen in Japan, he/she will know how overrated this place is!
