This is a bit late but better late than never.
It was le boyfriend's birthday and he decided on Ramen for his birthday dinner. We wanted to try something new as well so we opted for Bari-Uma Ramen at Jaya Shopping Centre after looking at several blog posts on Top Ramen in KL.
The ramen shop is located inside the mall so just park inside the building since it's pretty jam in that area.
So sorry guys but I was willing a little unwell at the time so I might be a bit biased.
The interior was the typical Japanese setting with the daiso tea cups with the sakura on it. I wonder why a lot of places opt for daiso stuff...is it cheaper?? Anyway, there weren't a lot of people there that night.
Looking at the menu, we ordered ramen, gyoza and yakitori! I was quite surprised that they had yakitori so it was a must try. Le boyfriend had a Noritama-Uma Ramen while I had a Kara-Uma Ramen which was the spicy version.
Kara-Uma Ramen (RM26)
Noritama-Uma Ramen (RM29)
Presentation wise, it was nice but taste wise...it was a totally different taste compared to the usual ramens you get at Marutama or Ippudo. The char siu tasted like the typical siu yok (roast pork) you get at chicken rice shops. Moving onto the broth...all I can say is that it did not taste like the typical ramen broth and I was not impressed.
The gyoza was sub par while the yakitori was depressing. They basically chopped meat and vegetables and skewered them. You can tell by now how disappointed I was with the food.
Green Tea & Black Sesame Ice cream (RM7.90 each)
At the end, we also ordered ice cream cause what could go wrong. Rite? The ice cream was obviously untouched for a very long time judging by how much ice crystals there were on top and inside the scoop.
My verdict? Never going back again. If you want to try something different then go ahead but really not my thing.
That's it for this post!
