For us, we were the foods explorers. Yamagoya Ramen (山小屋) just opened at Publika, so we won’t miss the chance the taste the legendary Mukashi special ramen (猪骨拉面). The soup remains a secret recipe, which was air freight from Japan HQ to maintain the ‘quality’. One serving is RM24 (USD8).

The pork bone broth was excellent. I am not a big fan of fatty meat, so the Pork Cha Siu was ‘ok’ to me. The egg (味玉 – 溏心蛋) was very nice. It melt in your mouth. Gyoza was above average (RM11).
