[Kuala Lumpur] Hokkaido Ramen Santouka @ Pavilion KL

There is nothing greater than a bowl of al-dente and bouncy ramen with some thick and rich broth for a meal, and all comes possible when you dine at Hokkaido Ramen Santouka located at the Tokyo Street (6th floor) of Pavilion Kuala Lumpur

Hokkaido Ramen Santouka was a surprise catch when I was walking around Pavilion's Tokyo Street area while hunting for lunch many years back. I remembered I can smell a very strong fragrant when I was walking around Tokyo Street and seriously attracted to find out where it came from.
It turns out to be a rather normal looking Ramen Restaurant that is located right beside the famous Suki-Ya Steamboat Restaurant

During my recent visit to Kuala Lumpur, I've dropped by at Pavilion and decided to go for lunch at Hokkaido Ramen Santouka to ease my ramen craving. I was there in the late afternoon hence the restaurant wasn't too crowded.

When I flipped through the menu, I was really attracted by this special dish on the menu. It was Awase-aji Ramen that looks really attractive to me.
There are 3 types of broth in Hokkaido Ramen Santouka which are Shio, Shoyu and Miso Soup. What's special in this Awase-aji Ramen is the special combination of all three ShioShoyu and Miso in one bowl of ramen.
The combination of the soup made a bowl of rich and thick broth that smells awesomely heaven when it arrived on my table! The bowl of ramen also came with sides of 2 perfectly cooked Japanese half boiled eggs, some crunchy bamboo shoot slices and 2 pieces of smooth and juicy pork Char Siew.
I was really surprised by the portion of this Awase-aji Ramen that also came with a bowl of white rice and a small cup of tea. The rice serves as the purpose of when customers finished their bowl of Ramen and there is still broth left, you can pour the rice into the broth and continue to enjoy the dish until you finish it. But honestly, the whole set was a bit too much to me even I'm a big appetite person. I couldn't really finish the rice after the ramen. The tea was perfect after our big ramen meal that it smoothens our stomach and great to end the meal.
You can also order desserts like green tea ice cream or mochi after your meal if you have space left in your stomach.

Enjoying a hearty meal can be as simple as this, Hokkaido Ramen Santouka is in Pavilion for a few years and still running fine. I do hope that I can visit this ramen shop whenever I drop by in KL again.
