Thanks to the wonderful invitation, I recently had chance to sample the new 2015 Grand Menu of IPPUDO Malaysia, the local chapter of Japan’s acclaimed ramen chain. Available starting from 1 April 2015, customers can taste these new culinary creations at IPPUDO’s Pavilion KL and The Gardens Mall outlets.
“IPPUDO always aims to bring to the table tasty selections brimming with robust classic flavours and a hint of modern finesse. We believe our new menu will offer a taste of today’s Japan. IPPUDO Malaysia refreshes its menu on an annual basis in line with founder Shigemi Kawahara’s philosophy to continuously innovate to remain true. Kawahara is well known for reinventing ramen, and redefining recipes for a dish that emerged over 300 years ago. These recipes continue to captivate more than 50,000 customers who visit IPPUDO’s over 80 restaurants throughout Japan and almost 50 overseas outlets in major international cities daily, including those in London, Bangkok, Jakarta and Manila that opened their doors in late 2014.” said Tomo Kudo, IPPUDO’s Regional Operations Consultant.
Carefully crafted to cater to the discerning palates of loyal fans and local foodies, IPPUDO Malaysia is introducing two new ramens – the Shoyu Ramen and Kakuni Ramen, to their exciting Grand Menu. Kakuni Ramen is a signature dish offered only in selected IPPUDO stores, featuring tender pork simmered in IPPUDO’s special soy sauce, which available in 3 varieties namely Akamaru Kakuni Ramen, Karakamen Kakuni Ramen and Shiromaru Kakuni Ramen.
Besides ramen, 12 other new dishes that customers can look forward to are the Salmon Salad, Spicy Boiled Gyoza, Lasagne Gyoza, Sweet Corn Tempura, Dashimaki Egg Roll, Mushroom Teppan, Pork Grill, Ika No Isobe Age (deep fried squid tentacles with seaweed powder), Teppan Rice with Beef, Teppan Garlic Rice with Chicken, Grilled Eel Roll with Teriyaki Sauce, and Seared Salmon Roll with Mentaiko.
Refreshing salad with avocado, broccoli, cherry tomato, capsicum, lettuce and big chunks of fresh salmon to add a touch of class to your healthy meal.
Sweet Corn Tempura
Simple yet very addictive, chef fried the corn with tempura batter till golden brown crispy, then finished it off with sprinkle of seaweed powder and paprika powder for the extra flavor to compliment the nice sweetness taste of corn.
Spicy Boiled Gyoza
Lovers of the Japanese gyoza will find this irresistible especially the ponzu chili sauce with extracted chili paddy that gives customers the sharp kick taste.
Grilled Eel Roll with Teriyaki Sauce
A delicate medley of flavors and textures, chef cheekily presented this grilled eel roll in bite-sized cube form and topped with a dash of wasabi. I enjoyed the rice very much as chef cooked it together with teriyaki sauce to let it absorb all the wonderful essence.
Don’t forget to leave some room for dessert as there will be a selection of 7 new desserts, namely Panna Cotta with Soybean Flour, Matcha Parfait, Itachoco Monaka (crunchy chocolate sandwiched between soft vanilla ice cream and wafer), Daifuku, Japanese Bit Sized Ice Cream, Taiyaki Ice and Cheese Stick.
Served chilled with strawberry and lemon slices, Daifuku is a Japanese mochi with vanilla ice cream filling, which is light, easy and the perfect ending to a satisfying heavy meal here.
“We would like to thank our customers for making this possible by offering them a new menu that not only presents fresh innovative flavours but is friendly to their pockets, hopefully helping them to cushion the impact of the introduction of GST in Malaysia (to be levied at a rate of 6 percent beginning 1 April 2015). For example, our very popular Shiromaru Motoaji previously priced at RM26 can now be enjoyed for only RM22.90. We hope that our new price points will also persuade more people to give IPPUDO ramen a try. We continue to offer premium food selections, but now at even more affordable prices.” explained further Tomo Kudo.
