Heard so much about Tokyo Street at Pavilion, that I just have to take a few hours off to head down to KL for lunch.
Before stepping in to Tokyo Street, not too bad an idea to pose with the macho Ultraman.
SANTOUKA was the main reason I made this visit, as I've heard so much about the authenticity of taste of this ramen store.
As we wanted to save our stomach for the other food outside, Shereen & I just took a set to share. Had the 'Small Ramen & Char Siu Rice Bowl Set' and took the 'Shio'/Salt soup base as were told this is the original soup base. The set too came with a cup of chawanmushi, pickle, salad and a cup of green tea.
Known for serving soup at the perfect temperature as the soup is not meant to be boiled, I do like the soup base that carries the pork bone taste. The elasticity of the ramen does spells freshness too.
The Char Siu served on top of the rice, tasted excellent. Love the aromatic taste, and tenderness of the char siu. NICE!!
The cup of green tea was also worth mentioning, as it has a fresh tea aroma. Liked this..
Its been so long since I last been to Pavilion, and its definitely a wonderful feeling to have seen how much it has improved, especially with creation of Tokyo Street, a place that combines everything Japanese.. Good 'FEEL'..
