Continuing my craving for Ramen the week before last, I met up with Lin for lunch at this place called Tonchan, located in Wisma Cosway as recommended in KY’s blog.
Located in the very secluded area of Wisma Cosway, it’s one of the best place for Japanese Chashu.
Lunch time on a Friday, not a lot of patrons that day with a few empty tables available. We were seated by the window, hence there’s a nice view of the Pavilion surrounding. A brief look in the menu comprises of a number of ramen and lunch sets. I quickly settled for something more familiar, Chashu Ramen.
Chashu Ramen (RM18) served with 5 pieces of Chashu (pork belly) with egg and a slice of fish cake.
I would say that the ramen in pretty standard, the Chashu on the other hand is damn good!
The fat portion of the meat literally melts in my mouth and is as sinful as it looks so be sure to take lots of ocha after the meal. The soup base is clear and delicious, but the only thing that’s somehow off is the use of bean sprouts in the ramen. Somehow, I felt that the use of that localize the version of the ramen.
Lin ordered the Tori Karaage & Ramen Set (RM25) that comes with a small bowl of ramen, rice and Karaage. He chose the Tonkotsu version, which give a cloudy soup but full of pork bone flavour.
A side salad and peppermint ice cream for dessert.
The Karaage (Fried Chicken) was alright and again it taste more like the night market version of Taiwanese Fried Chicken. If you fancy that, then the Karaage was ok but there’s other which tasted better.
I wouldn’t mind dropping by again for that glorious piece of Chashu and it’s certainly a cheaper alternative compare to the likes of the many ramen shops in Pavilion.
