Goku Raku Ramen l 極樂らーめん @Mid Valley Megamall

Hey what’s up foodies, the ramen series is back, this time bring you the "Horikiri Style" ramen from Goku Raku Ramen outlet located at one of Malaysia's favourite shopping destinations- Mid Valley Megamall. For those who missed the previous ramen reviews, simply click >here: Marutama Ramen @Fahrenheit 88<  & >here: Hokkaido Ramen Santouka@Pavilion KL< for a quick recap ;)

Thanks to the lovely invite from Goku Raku Ramen & Ivy, I had a chance to attend a pretty lavish food review at the GRR Mid Valley outlet where several signature ramen together with some delightful appetizers, katsu etc. were served. ^^

Warm specious interior @ Goku Raku Ramen, Mid Valley Megamall outlet.

perhaps the most attention attention drawing thing at Goku Raku Ramen outlet @Mid Valley Megamall-- the sophisticated (& extremely expensive according to the chef ^^) ramen-making machine which supply freshly made ramen to all the GRR outlets on daily basis.
The nicely printed menu.

And here comes the stars of the night, the 5 Star Kakuni Ramen & the 5 Star Aburi Char Siew Ramen. Both consist of a generous portion of ramen topped with spring onion, bean sprout, bamboo shoot, soft & smooth lava egg, black garlic oil and delectable homemade braised pork belly (for Kakuni ramen) / mouth-watering roasted char siew (for Aburi Char Siew ramen).    

5 Star Kakuni Ramen (R). RM 26.90
5 Star Aburi Char Siew Ramen (R). RM 25.90

One thing to be highlight at Goku Raku Ramen would be the unique Tonkotsu soup, a creamy & rich soup make up by a well mixed broth of palatable pork, chicken & fish, as well as the japanese Shio (salt) and Shoyu (soy sauce). This is so far the most ample pork base ramen soup that I've tasted, a must try for heavy tasters and pork lovers.

Tan Tan Ramen. An alternative for those who doesn't like their noodles to be too soupy. RM 13.90
GRR Meatballs. Crispy skin with soft juicy fillings, the luscious sweet sauce might be too much for me but some of the girl bloggers fell deep in love with it. ;) RM 5 (5pcs) RM 9 (10 pcs) RM 17 (20pcs) 
Yaki Gyoza. RM 9.90 

For group/family dining, chef’s special course meal which comes with a great deal of dishes is something to be consider if you’re looking for more than an a-la-carte order. Do take note that the chef’s special course meal are only available after 6pm as it takes longer preparation time in serving the meal :) 

Chef’s Special Course Meal Set C (3-4 pax). RM 119.90

Some close up shots for the dishes available in the chef’s special course meal we tried: 

Aburi Char Siew (L) & Utsunomiya Sui Gyoza. The soft & literary melt in your mouth Char Siew is still my favourite ramen item. b^^d
Crispy Shrimp Mayo, Tori Momo Karaage & Pork Loin Rei Shabu (L to R). Love the fresh juicy bouncy shrimp with almost impossible to fail mayo. b^^d 
Ebi Chili, Sweet & Sour Pork and Siew Mai (L to R).
Mini Ramen, Sesame Ball and Chef Recommended Salad (L to R).
