Edo Ramen, Mid Valley Megamall Food Review

Edo Ramen - the original Handmade Japanese Ramen. That's what it says.
The first outlet of Edo Ramen in Malaysia is located in Gurney Paragon, Penang, where it's under the same company of Goku Raku Ramen but branching off from it.

The styles of Edo Ramen is of Tokyo style which is from the ramen connoisseur Mr. Tetsuya Fukino. To me, Tokyo style ramen is milder in it's broth as oppose to Kyushu area and Kansai area which are stronger in their taste. Anyway, I had a taste of Edo Ramen in the Mid Valley branch to see how does it fair.

First dish that I had was the Ultimate Tonkotsu (RM15.90 for Regular and RM17.90 for Large):
All the Ramen dishes has an ultimate version and a normal version. The ultimate version has a few extra ingredients in it which is seaweed, Japanese fish cake, braised pork belly and lava egg. For the Ultimate Tonkotsu, the normal version is the Tonkotsu Ramen which the regular size would cost just RM9.90 and the large version costs RM11.90. The Tonkotsu Ramen broth is from pork bone. It's boiled over medium to high heat for 12 hours having a hearty pork flavor and creamy consistency. I love the chashu. Nice, soft, full of porky goodness.

This here is the Ultimate Miso (Regular - RM16.90, Large - RM18.90):
Miso broth is also the pork bone broth only thing is it's with Japanese soybean paste so it will be a little saltier than the Tonkotsu. The normal version which is the Miso Ramen is priced at RM10.90 for Regular and RM12.90 for Large. The ingredients is the same as the Tonkotsu.

They're also introducing Gyukotsu Ramen which is the Beef Bone Broth Ramen.
In addition to the broth, the meat served with it is also beef slices. The above picture is the Ultimate version which their introductory promo price will be RM15.90 for the normal version while the ultimate version promo price is at RM17.90. As for the prices of the normal version, it's RM9.90 for Regular and RM11.90 for Large. After promo, the prices will be RM2 extra.

Boiled Gyoza (RM4.90):
Didn't manage to try this so I'm not sure how it taste like. LOL.

Pan-Fried Gyoza (RM4.90):
It's 3 pieces. I felt that the Gyoza tasted vinegar-ish and wasn't much to my liking. I concluded that the Boiled Gyoza may be the same but I could be wrong.

Aburi Char Siew (RM11.90):
This one's quite okay. Not as lovely as those inside the ramen itself but still passable.
