Rising Ramen is a new Ramen joint in town, the lucky folks at Pulau Tikus can now enjoy a bowl of Ramen with rich meat broth and al-dente noodles at the new Moulmein Rise Shoppes, right behind Pulau Tikus market. Aims to be a Halal Ramen joint, the restaurant is now offering a Pork-Free menu featuring a few signature Ramen dishes as well as Donburi and side dishes. It is a joint venture between a local and a Japanese Ramen master; the interior decor is simple with a familiar Japanese-restaurant setting. But certain local traits can be seen as well... like the pickled Cili Padi resting on the table and the option of adding Fish Balls to the Ramen. Authenticity aside, the Ramen joint did manage to convince us with its slurp-licious noodles and flavorful broth.... most importantly, friendly price tags.
Ajitama Aka Ramen (Rm 16)
Ajitama Kuro Ramen (Rm 15.50)
The "Aka" (Red) Ramen carried a mild spiciness while the "Kuro" (Black) version possessed a bold Chicken flavor with a hint of Garlic. We were very pleased with the bouncy texture of the noodles and the broth was amazing. It has all the flavors we need, but a pity that it was not hot enough (only warm when it was served to us). The Chicken did not turn out to be as hard as expected but rather tender and succulent. The serving portion is not exactly huge but those with bigger appetite could opt for extra noodles at the cost of Rm 3.50.
