There are plenty of places in KL where you can get your Japanese cravings satisfied. But if your appetite is calling for some halal ramen, then you should definitely make your way to Maruki Ramen! Located at The LINC KL, prepare to transport yourself to Japan as you slurp your way through delicious bowls of halal Japanese ramen noodles.
At Maruki Ramen, you can expect to get an authentic taste of Japanese ramen thanks to its noodles that are handmade daily using imported halal wheat flour from Japan (which also means no preservatives, yay!). And when you couple that with the eatery’s iconic rich and flavourful chicken broth, the bar is set high for a wholly satisfying Japanese meal. Plus, the kitchen is led by a Sapporo-born chef who was skillfully trained in Tokyo which really just seals the deal ?
While you can’t go wrong with any of the dishes here, a great place to start is the Classic Shio Ajitama (RM25.90) that comes with a glazed chicken roll, ajitama soft-boiled egg and fresh leek. Clean, simple yet amazingly delicious - this is a combo that we can definitely get on board with ? For something a little punchier, try the Superior Shoyu Ramen (RM22.90) that’s been mixed with Japanese soy sauce.
Not in the mood for noodles? Maruki Ramen’s got you covered with Japanese rice-based dishes like Karaage Don that also has a spicy version. And if you’re down to spend more on your meal, go all out with their signature dish, Wagyu Don (RM69.90) where a taste of tender, melt-in-your-mouth wagyu awaits you ?
For those seeking lighter bites to pair with their ramen, take your pick from various snacks such as chicken gyoza, edamame, tori karaage and more! Even if you’re not having a full on meal here, they’re great to munch on while you kick back and relax in the cosiness of the restaurant.
Whether you’ve been feeling nostalgic about Japan or just hankering for a yummy bowl of ramen noodles, Maruki Ramen is the spot to be at. And if you prefer to enjoy your meal at home, you can always opt for their takeaway or delivery service ? So go ahead and make plans to tuck into some freshly handmade Japanese noodles this weekend!
