Made by Illy @ Taman Tun Dr Ismail

By Aiman Azri

This noodle specialist is notable for serving pork-free ramen, souped up with meaty supplements such as beef short ribs in beef broth (RM25), a worthy-enough bovine substitute for the tonkotsu ramen that rules the roost at most of KL's top ramen joints.

Other ramen variations are available, such as the Spicy Szechuan (RM15) - this may evoke mapo tofu, with some Szechuan chilli paste to mix with the beef broth.

The Intensified Miso (RM24) uses a concentrated miso broth served with spicy minced beef. Beware: It might be more fiery than expected.

The regular Miso (RM 20) is thankfully a more subdued affair - the miso broth's flavour comes right through, mingling with a touch of mushrooms. This includes chicken char siu to replace the popular barbecued porcine counterpart.

The menu also features light bites like the Zwingz (RM 12) - zesty chicken wings that pack a crunch, with a sweet-and-spicy flavour that's essentially similar to chilli sauce.

For beverages, the Fruit Rouges by Comptoirs Richard (RM7) showcases black tea blended with a variety of berries and cherries.

Fun fact: Made by Illy's storefront proclamation of "Est 1991" reputedly refers to the birth year of its young founder, Illy.
