(41, Jalan Kuchai Maju 7)
Having spent the better part of the day moving from Chinatown over to Bangar, and sorting out practical stuff that took far longer than anticipated, I was left with the horrifying discovery that it was 7pm and I hadn't eaten yet.
Torazou had been on my list for a while now, but being quite a trek outside of the city-centre, I never made it. Until today.
The Grab taxi pulled up outside my hotel after performing hi-jinx U-turn maneouvers in the middle of the road. He started driving, checked his map, turned around and said "Oh traffic! 29 minutes". I braced myself.
23 minutes later we pulled up outside the restaurant in a part of KL I would never otherwise explore. Ordered the regular ramen and an Asahi and sat watching at least 20 people clutching their chopsticks like life-vests and pummelling the bowl.
Was it worth the trip? Yes.
This wasn't amazing ramen, although the actual noodles were great since they are made fresh in house. The broth had a decent enough flavour but was left lacking a bit in the depth department. The pork also had too high a ratio of fat-meat on it so you felt like you only got fat and not enough texture. The egg was strong average.
Service-wise it was great, the location was quirky and i'm sure people who live nearby just congregate here instead of driving to Bankara since its aaaalmost as good without the hassle of leaving your neighbourhood.
