Ippudo's New Seasonal Items Special

Before the Raya Holiday kicked in, I embark a trip to Ippudo, Pavilion to savor it's new seasonal items that's available for a limited period of time. The particular highlight of the seasonal items would be the Tsukemen ramen:
Elaborations on it will be further down in this blogpost.

So there I was over there seeing familiar faces among most of those that were present. We were given a choice of whether to have the Strawberry Fizz or the Kiwi Fizz as our refreshing drink while we await for the dishes. I chose this:
The Strawberry Fizz. This time around, the Ippudo event was very different from the previous ones I attended with just few of us invited and present with a section catered for the event while inside the restaurant, business runs as usual. I was told that this was a casual event rather than a formal one to introduce to us bloggers the seasonal items that's available and allow us to have a taste.

After a brief introduction from the Operations Consultant, Yosuke Nishiguchi, we were served with a very delectable and enticing plate of sushi.
From what I can see, the plating was sublime with each of our individual portion arranged in a similar manner though this is not how it's usually served.

It's usually served in pieces of four with the one taste of your choice.

Altogether, there are 3 different sushi.

Salmon Avocado Bacon Roll:
Fresh salmon roll served with avocado and bacon.

Spicy Tuna Roll:
Tuna roll served with homemade spicy mayo on top.

And Unagi Cheese Roll:
Unagi roll served with homemade cheese mayo.

Each plate are priced RM15.
 This is something that deviates from the usual Ippudo menu since Ippudo usually serve Ramen and never sushi. Overall, I'm impress with it's presentation and taste-wise passable in my books.

And now, on to the highlight, the Hakata Tsukemen!

Before bringing the Ramen out to us, Yosuke demonstrated to us on how to correctly eat Tsukemen:
The Hakata Tsukemen is served one bowl containing just soup:
While another bowl with just the cold noodles with it's ingredients:
The way to eat it is first you take some noodles, then you dip it into it's soup before consuming it.
Once finished, just pour some hot water into the bowl of soup and drink it on it's own. :D

There you have it, Hakata Tsukemen. Priced at RM26.
