Oishii Ramen @ Tun H.S. Lee
July 7, 2013
On a street of shop-houses more known for Malay fried village chicken, Chinese beef noodles & Indian chapatis & curries, this little outlet still enjoys brisk lunchtime business with its promise of big bowls of steaming-hot Japanese ramen.
Unlike many of its ramen peers in KL, Oishii is a no-pork outlet, but mercifully, that isnt equivalent to no-pleasure, as this Nagasaki ramen (RM16) with plenty of prawns, calamari & corn might prove. The broths OK; not remarkably rich, but far from weak or watered-down.
Buttery-spicy Sapporo ramen with chicken cha-siu. Absolutely acceptable for RM15.
Dont feel like noodling around? No fear: Oishii also supplies other Land-Of-The-Rising-Sun specialties, like super-hearty sushi topped with scallops & eel.
No sake is served, so folks must make do with Asahi beer, nice & cold nonetheless.
21, Jalan Tun H.S. Lee, Kuala Lumpur.
Open daily through 8pm or so.
