Marutama Ra-Men

// March 27th, 2011 // Comments Off on Marutama Ra-Men // Food

Marutama Ra-Men: One of the must visit place if you love japanese cuisine especially ramen. It was my first visit to this newly opened restaurant located in Bukit Bintang area and I fell in love with the authentic ramen that they served.

Before this, I wasn’t a big fan of ramen since I find it nothing special compared to all other noodle served in restaurants. My perception changed after trying the ramen in Marutama.┬áThe menu at the restaurant serves more ramen than any other type of japanese dishes.


The interior decoration of Marutama Ra-Men is simple yet elegant, unlike any other japanese restaurants that I had been before with exquisite decoration but it was otherwise for food quality.

The size of the restaurant may be small but seating arrangement is organized.

Being one of the authentic japanese restaurant in town, it goes without saying that their service is excellent. Prompt response from the staffs at all time without further delay.

Knowing the fact that it serves quality ramen, one would thought that it takes longer time before the food is serve. As a chinese, I would have thought so and I have to thank chinese restaurant owners that made us wait an hour for food.

Even if you have only an hour for meal, you can always be sure that the ramen you ordered will be on your table in less than 10 minutes time.

Hanjuku Tamago, the egg that I craved and die for when it comes to eating japanese ramen. Without it, ramen would be categorized as just another bowl of instant noodle in my dictionary.

Segafredo Zanetti Espresso Revisited

// August 3rd, 2010 // 2 Comments » // Food

In the month of April, I’ve posted a review on the newly open Segafredo Zanetti Espresso in Pavilion Kuala Lumpur. Ever since then, I fell in love with this coffee joint and I’m proud to say that it’s still my frequently visited place when it comes to having a good cup of coffee with peace.

Now why do I say that? It’s because this place is not located on the main aisle of Pavilion Kuala Lumpur where you’ll see dining places like La Bodega, Michelangelo’s and even Starbucks.

Segafredo Zanetti Espresso is located on the opposite side of the aisle, a corner next to Bentley and EON Bank. Due to its location, it’s generally quiet with few passerby. Therefore, it’s an ideal place to sip a cup of coffee if you would like to be in the big city minus the crowd and intense noise pollution.

Visited the place on a sunny weekend.

Started to rain with the current unpredictable weather and I moved to the bar instead.

It makes one wonder why is there a revisit review on Segafredo Zanetti Espresso. Simply because they have new menu on both food and beverage. To name some, you can now find pizza and german potato salad to fill that hunger of yours.

And if coffee isn’t your kind of beverage, why not quench your thirst with a bottle of Hoegaarden?

However, do take note that Segafredo Zanetti Espresso now charges 5% on the total bill for Government Tax. But what’s the big deal if you enjoy the atmosphere and coffee there? I wouldn’t mind so long as I get a peace of mind with my coffee.
