Tomo Ramen Bar, Damansara Uptown

Inspired by its founders' travels in Kyoto, Damansara Uptown's new Tomo tackles ramen in miso soymilk broth, its mild-mannered creaminess spiked with a subtle spiciness. This broth is made without meat, but the top-recommended bowl still packs plenty of protein, thanks to the ramen essentials of pork belly chashu, soft-boiled egg and wood ear fungus (RM30.90). The more typical tonkotsu broth is also available, boiled with pork bones for 20 hours, as is a selection of donburi rice bowls and snacks like grilled scallop skewers with a sweet mentaiko sauce, aflutter with bonito flakes (RM8.90).

Tomo Ramen Bar
75, Jalan SS21/1A, Damansara Utama, Petaling Jaya, Selangor. Open Tues-Sun, 11am-12am. Tel: 03-7733-7755

  2. Oh! What a coincidence! I passed by yesterday. In fact I was watching this place right from renovation stage and had an inkling (from the facade) that it would be Japanese. I rejoice that they are a ramen bar! I will be there to explore real soon :)

  3. When I saw the post title, my first instinct was that PH will be here very soon..since it's her hunting ground + she also loves ramen! ;) I'd probably skip the soy-based broth which I had once before with pork noodles (and once was quite enough). P/S: I seem to notice an increased trend of lone meals these days (some form of liberation?) ^_~ Hehe! ;D

  4. I think I'll skip the soy based broth too (like Kris :P) as I think when I have ramen, tonkotsu is the essential element to fix my craving.

    1. Choi Yen: ooo, but soymilk broths and soy sauce (shoyu) broths actually do taste different :)
