Ajisen Ramen @ 1 Utama Shopping Centre (Old Wing)

We were indecisive today... both of us could not agree on what to eat for dinner. So we set out on a place to go and then decide on what to eat once we're there. We ended up in 1utama... spent a good 20 minutes just to look for carpark (a big SIGH!!!)

As we walked, we saw this outlet... hmmm!! Not bad we said... so Ajisen Ramen it is!!!

I asked Jenn to go inside first while I snapped a few pictures... like this one where they put some Japanese decorations and pictures of the food on the display.

This is how it (inside) looks from the outside... quite modern.

Rather big menu

Chicken Teri Set @ RM11.80 - this set came with a complimentary soup. The teriyaki sauce was OK but I preferred grilled chicken instead of deep fried (in this case). I also like my salad to go with thousand island sauce but then, it was too much... YUCK!!!

Fish ramen @ RM12.80 - it was hard to describe the taste of the soup (according to Jenn). It was a combination of spicy and salty but not too much... just nice and Jenn liked it. Again, the fish meat was deep fried!!

Black pepper tontoro @ RM12.80 - it certainly looked very big on the menu. When it was served, it was only 5 pieces of ultra thin slices or black pepper marinated pork. The meat was not so tender but quite chewy though. For those who like their meat to have strong black pepper taste, you would love this... Jenn thought that it was too peppery but I liked its strong taste.

Leo's verdict - I don't really like my chicken teri set but the tontoro was good. Jenn also commended on her ramen. Well, I have to come back for Round 2 and try different food in order to make conclusion on whether it's worth coming or not.
