Hinode Seimen Udon known as a fast food japanese style restaurant serving udon/ramen soup and a variety of tempura. Situated at the new stretch of shop houses along the Automall Karpal Singh Drive and one shop away from Coffee Smith. The interior was coated with a japan street painting on their walls with bamboo sticks and mask hanging down from the ceiling. With the limited space, they were only able to set in small rectangular wooden tables and chairs. To ease the customers as they are operating in a self-service mode, a free flow of tea is place in the central spot of the shop.
Their menu is simple to read. First, you choose the noodle of your choice (Udon / Ramen / Pumpkin Ramen and Green Tea Ramen). Step 2, select the soup base of our choice. If you are adventurous, probably opt for their kelp bonita or the spicy soup. A safer choice would be to have the miso base. One selling point about the Hinode is that, we are given a wide variety of tempura to choose from. Which leads us to Step 3, select the side dishes and sauces of your choice. Lastly, pay at the counter and grab your tea

Scouting for somewhere new to eat near FTZ area? It was through the word of mouth from a few friends recommending this place that both me and Chase decided to check it out. According to them, Kare is a MUST TRY if you are a Kare lover. We also did some reviews research online to check out their menu, unfortunately for us, they were not serving sushi when we visited. (which they proclaim it to be a MUST TRY too) Since it was our first visit, we would opt for recommended choices at the safe side.
绊 Kizuna, is a Japanese word meaning “bond”. They started their operation in the beginning of 2013 locating at Bay Avenue, Bayan Lepas (Beside Eastin Hotel Penang). With a basic concept of casual dining restaurant focusing on quality and a unique mix of traditional and modern Japanese dining. The cozy ambience and dim lighting has made it more comfortable for the customers to sink into the chatty and homey mood right away. Because the place is small in size, the noise would be in a controlled manner.
HotStar Fried Chicken is new addition to the chain of restaurants at Queen Street, North Zone in Queensbay Mall. Similar to Shihlin Taiwanese Snacks, they sell humongous fried chicken breast meat sprinkled with some chilli powder on top, depending on your preference for its spiciness.
They do not offer cutting of the whole chicken breast meat into several pieces, so we ended up chewing the entire piece of chicken from the paper bag given. Reason being, the juiciness of the chicken will no longer be there if we intend to cut the chicken into pieces. They have different level of spiciness. ( Low – Medium – Hot – Extra Hot ).
Namoo Korean Dessert Cafe is the FIRST Korean dessert cafe in Malaysia serving genuine modern Korean food in bistro style.
