Manmaru Homemade Udon is a brand new Japanese restaurant in town. It is located inside Midvalley Megamall, a shopping mall at the centre between Petaling Jaya and Kuala Lumpur. I was happy to be invited by Ah Bok/ taufulou to attend the food review session a month ago.
Manmaru 自家制乌冬面是市内新开的餐厅。这家餐厅坐落于谷中城广场内。我很开心部落客友人Ah Bok/taufulou 邀请我一起享用那里的美食。
Manmaru means perfectly round which the owner trying to tell everyone that they are trying to be perfect.
This is their second month in operation. Before you entering their restaurant, you will see the name/words written 'homemade udon', yes perhaps that is one of the attraction here.
Another thing is that they running self service concept. As we walk in, we order and pay at the counter. This is somewhat different with Japanese restaurant I visited before.
Thirdly, they having an open kitchen. We can view the process of udon making, tempura frying and etc when we are waiting for our food to be served at the counter. Once they receive your order, they will cook the noodle, the waiting time is 10 minutes. There is no ready made udon inside.
|Curry Udon RM 10.90 (R) / RM 12.90 (L)|
This is one of my friend's favourite!The traiditional Japanese curry is thick and tasty!
|Kimchi Udon RM 11.90 (S) / RM 13.90 (L)|
So now we can see mixture of Japan and Korea culture in this kimchi udon. I compare with kimchi I ate before, this is rather mild, not too sour and spicy, just balance enough to suit my taste bud.

Well, no matter which Japanese restaurant you went, they always serve soft boiled eggs. Hanjuku Tamago is marinated with soya sauce before boiled.
好，不管你去哪一家日本餐厅，他们都会有半熟蛋。Hanjuku Tamago 在还没拿去煮前，先用豆酱来腌制的哦!
I personally like their homemade udon because that is less additives/ chemical added compared with supplied noodles from factory. It is daily made. Moreover, the udon is springy and tastes without lye water.
