Overall comment: Generous portion that is value for money. The soup base tastes just-right to me (not too salty like most Japanese restaurants). Yums :)
Edo Ramen proudly offers the original handmade Tokyo-style Japanese ramen, a unique recipe by notable ramen connoisseur, Mr Tetsuya Fukino. Having started its first outlet at Gurney Paragon in Penang in the middle of this year, Klang Valley residents can now enjoy this unique ramen at Mid Valley Megamall itself since the restaurant opened late August this year. Edo Ramen branched off from Goku Raku Ramen & brings a fresh approach to ramen indulgence at greater value (price & taste!).
The outlet at Mid Valley is pretty spacious, with 2 sections of the restaurants for all guests.
You could also take a sneak peak into the ramen kitchen where the chefs churn out the handmade ramen & serve it with a choice of 4 types of soups & 2 categories of toppings, according to your order.
The Tonkotsu broth is another option available here & is a popular choice among pork lovers. This thick broth made from pork bones is boiled over medium to high heat for 12 hours, presenting a hearty pork flavor without the unpleasant 'porky smell' ("sou" smell in Cantonese) & a creamy consistency. You can enjoy the broth in 3 flavors i.e. classic, miso (tonkotsu cooked with Japanese soybean paste) or black (tonkotsu with Japanese fish powder & aromatic charred crushed garlic oil) together with your ramen.
Apart from the satisfying bowls of ramen offered here, Edo Ramen also serves 2 styles of gyoza, one of it is the classic boiled gyoza, while the other is the pan-fried gyoza, presented in a rather unique way. Not to be missed is also the Aburi Char Siew, a platter of thin sliced barbecued pork, which melts in your mouth :)
If you're in Mid Valley & can't really decide on what to have for lunch or dinner, give Edo Ramen a try & do share your experience with me as well! :D
