Ajisen Ramen @ 1 Utama, Petaling Jaya

Sunday, June 21, 2009

Ajisen Ramen was found at Kumamoto, Japan in 1968. Currently Ajisen Ramen already has 400++ chains in worldwide. More than 120++ store chains is mainly found in the Far East including Japan and China, but has a few locations in North America, and couple of branches in Malaysia. The restaurant setup is pretty neat and relaxing where the lights are soft lighting and there are sections which have tatami mats.

To start off with the Pan Fried Gyoza, typically consist of a ground meat and/or vegetable filling wrapped into a thinly rolled piece of dough, which is then sealed by pressing the edges together or by crimping. The gyoza is crispy and serve good with soy-vinegar.
Then The Unagi Roll, is the Japanese word for freshwater eels and wrapped with rice roll. It’s tasty but they put a bit too much of the mayonnaise.
Chicken Teriyaki, using chicken breast meat and cook in teriyaki style which a cooking technique used in Japanese Cuisine in which the chicken is broiled or grilled in a sweet soy sauce marinade (tare in Japanese). It’s ok and tangy but not the best in town.
As for the main dishes, the Spicy Chicken Chasiu Ramen. Ramen is a Japanese noodle dish that originated in China. It is served in a meat- or fish-based broth, often flavored with soy or miso, and uses toppings such as sliced pork/chicken, dried seaweed, green onions and even corn. As for this dish, they put spicy minced meat and it’s quite…sorry, is very hot…. Soup is nice and chicken chasiu is alright thought.
And next is the Chasiu Corn Ramen, same thing but without the spicy minced meat and tops with lots of corn. Making the soup sweet and tangy.
Gyoza Ramen, The Ramen is serve with milky soup base, 3 pieces of Gyoza, 1/2 piece of boil egg, bean sprouts & seaweed. In general, it’s alright.
The Spicy Paikut Ramen, Paikut = Pork Ribs. With the usual ingredients and on top with that the spicy flake, the soup is great and paikut is alright, tender and flavorful.
Garlic Fried Rice with Chicken Katsu, apparently they are only great with Ramen only. Their fried rice is quite bland and not that fragrance. The katsu is also average only.
Hot Plate Ramen with Beef Teri, the beef is quite tender and nicely grilled and cook with the ramen on top of the hot plate. Nicely done and yum yum…
Point to highlight here is that the service is quite slow; this area is very much needed to improve here.
