My usual haunt for udon is Sanuki Udon since its a nice walking distance away from my home. Decided that for a change, the udon cravings (almost every fortnight) should be bring to the sister outlet Marufuku in Jaya One. A change of environment is always a good idea.
Food is relatively fast at Sanuki or even Marufuku. And food at both outlets is consistently good.
Hubster orders his regular Kakiage Udon. Kakiage is basically a deep fried batter coated of mixed juliened vegetable including onion and carrot. Kakiage fans should give this a try and also order the kakiage pumpkin or ebi from the ala carte menu.
Feeling a little carnivorous on that rainy evening, I opted for the Niku Udon. Served in a bowl of hearty soup and a very generous topping of sliced beef, this is a very gratifying meal. The soup has a very hearty feel and definitely not laden with MSG. As expected...I finished up my bowl of soup when I was done with the noodles.
If you love a bit of spice in your noodle, then adding some of the shichimi powder gives this Niku Udon more attitude. A bolder taste to it. Yummeh!
The food portion in Marufuku or even Sanuki may be a tad small for some folks. But with the rain, I certainly didn't mind having another bowl of udon. The hot and spicy Mapo Udon was my second bowl:D Took the promotion set at RM8 which includes a bowl of the Mapo Udon, 2 pieces of Karaage (fried chicken) and a cup of green tea. Good buy!
Of course adding an egg into it gives this bowl of noodle would give it more character. However, it came in a bowl with a perfect runny yolk that I forgot about my noodles and happily slurp the egg up from the bowl on its own. Aiks!
The karaage has always been one of hubby's favourite. Tender marinated chicken pieces deep fried with a crisp skin...sinfully good. In fact it was so good, we ordered another serving of 3 pieces. And trust me on a rainy day, you don't want to be driving around, so cups of tea and lots of the karaage makes a perfect evening:P
