It was just a year ago when I went for Ippudo's first outlet launch in Malaysia (http://www.ktheblogger.com/2013/02/ippudo-ramen-malaysia.html) and now they've already sprouted to their 3rd outlet!
This outlet seems a little different then the ones I've seen. It appears to have a little western influence fit into it's design with an outdoor dining concept and a full-range bar that serves Ippudo cocktails, whisky, sake and wine catering for Bangsar's hip nightlife.
Shigemi Kawahara also officiated the launch by performing the special Sake Barrel Breaking ceremony (Kagami-biraki) alongside Dato' Rosie Tan, Director of Ippudo Malaysia.
Also had this cocktail named Blueberry Slushie:
While we were indulging in varieties of appetizer consisting of Grilled Eel Roll with Teriyaki Sauce, US Short Ribs with Wasabi Black Pepper Sauce and many more, the 4 delectable bowls of Ramen arrived in front of us.
Ippudo Kuro Ramen is their new ramen that is currently only made available in this BSC outlet.
Needless to say, the Akamaru and Karakamen tasted the same as what I've tasted before in Pavilion but the Shiromaru is a little different. This time, this one seems to be saltier than what I can remember. With the rest at my table finish tasting the Ippudo Kuro, I quickly grab at the chance to savor back the delicious bowl of ramen and slurp it all up. LOL. This time, the bites of it has a stronger taste of spring onion being the prominent of them all but fades off with each bite nearing the bottom of the bowl. It is definitely leaps and bounds my favorite out of the 4.
The BSC outlet has a seating capacity of 30 and 50 people outdoors and indoors respectively. The private room is available via appointments booked in advance. For reservations or private functions, call 03-20116238.
