Hakata IPPUDO Malaysia at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia 一風堂

Hakata IPPUDO Pavilion Kuala Lumpur

IPPUDO is finally in Malaysia! Hakata IPPUDO is a Japanese ramen chain restaurant famous for its Shiromaru and Akamaru ramen. Hakata IPPUDO ramen is originated from Hakata, Fukuoka distric in Kyushu, Japan. By the way, IPPUDO in Japanese means “one wind hall”. I was invited to first Hakata IPPUDO outlet in Malaysia pre-opening night for food tasting. On that evening, after I had my bowl of Kara-men at Hakata IPPUDO at Pavilion KL, I was blown away to Fukuoka Japan hehehe…

We started with some appetizers and side dishes then followed by our main of course the ramen!

Karaka-men Ramen

Karaka-men Ramen RM28
I decide to choose Kara-men it’s the spicier choice, original tonkutsu broth with spicy miso and ground pork. The soup is quite light and not too oily. The ramen is springy and the sweetness and aroma of the tonkatsu broth is ichiban, satisfied. The level of spiciness in Kara-men is mild, I had to add some chilli flakes. I shall visit again for the Akamaru Shinaji and I am going to add Chashu and Onsen Tamago (poached egg).

Shiromaru Motoaji Ramen 

Shiromaru Motoaji Ramen RM26
This is the classic Hakata style ramen, anything original can never go wrong. IPPUDO's original tonkotsu broth, white or sort of milky colour served with ultra-thin noodles, bean sprouts, kikurage and spring onions. I heard that this soup base is made from pork bones and simmered for many hours.

Akamaru Shinaji Ramen

Akamaru Shinaji Ramen RM28
This Akamaru Shinaji seems to be the favourite. It’s more refined and modern style ramen. IPPUDO’s original tonkatsu broth enhanced with special blended miso paste and fragrant garlic oil served with thin noodles, belly chashu, kikurage and spring onions.

Appetizers and Side Dishes

Sliced Japanese cucumber with sesame and some chilly flakes. The Japanese cucumber is fresh, crunchy and light.  

Crispy Corn

For lighter bite, you may try on the smoky flavoured deep-fried young corn with seaweed seasoning. Crisp and addictive, it was an excellent pick-me-up if you were looking for something tasty and healthy to nibble on.

Curry Cheese Haru Maki

This is crispy and creamy curry spring rolls is so addictive, ah must eat it when its still hot and don’t forget to dip a little bit of that mustard sauce.

Pork Bun

Steamed fluffy bun with braised pork and a little spread of IPPUDO’s special sauce, tender sweet pork slice and crisp lettuce.

Lightly battered and deep fried prawn with homemade spicy mayonnaise dip. I like the spicy mayonnaise that give the deep fried prawn some kick.

Hakata Style Soup Gyoza

Hakata Style Soup Gyoza
This Hakata Style Soup Gyoza in pork broth added with ginger and has 5 pieces of homemade gyoza / dumplings. The soup really warmed up my stomach.    

I like the modest and modern ramen outlet especially the wall decoration using soup spoon and bowl. The waiter and waitress are quite attentive and friendly. Hakata IPPUDO ramen is available in many countries such as Japan (origin), Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, New York City - USA, Singapore, Hong Kong, Seoul - South Korea, Taipei - Taiwan, Sydney  Australia and Shanghai  China
