Sapporo Noodle House

Woah! Never in my life would I have dreamt of finding a ramen stall that sells ramen for slightly over RM5. Not only that they're actually quite good too! Even more surprising they are located in KL City and is just a stone's throw from Low Yat Plaza.

Me and ST were in town doing some shopping and couldn't make up our minds on where to go for lunch. In the end we decided to have some good Wan Tan Mee at a stall located along Jalan Bukit Bintang and we started walking from Low Yat Plaza towards the Wan Tan Mee stall. As we were making our way through Federal Hotel a run-down looking shop caught our attention. Surprise, surprise! It was a Ramen place and they made damn sure that anyone passing by would notice their 50% off promotion.

A plain front. Very odd for a Japanese restaurant in this part of town where they usually aim to impress.

This place reminds me of a canteen :)

Menus in Japanese. They must get a lot of Japanese customers. A good sign.

We were ushered in by a lady who made it a point to tell us how cheap the noodles were and frankly they were really quite affordable. The lady suggested we try their Beef Ramen and Kimuchi Ramen and we agreed. We also ordered a side dish of Gyoza (as we usually do).

Beef Ramen. The soup was really tasty. Not sure what they used to boil the soup. My guess is pork bones. The beef cubes that came with the noodles were great.

Kimuchi Ramen. Spicy soup with Korean Kim-chi and served with Char-su (pork). Not bad though I would have liked it spicier.

The gyozas were just so-so.

Plus to cups of (refillable) tea and the bill came up to only RM20. What a steal.

I wonder if this place gets much business because we were there at around 12pm plus and we were the only customers there. Makes me wonder how a place with good food and reasonable price gets so little business.
