Bari Uma Ramen

Bari Uma Ramen, Japanese, Foodie Trail, Jaya Shopping Centre, chashu
I am not complaining that we have more Japanese goodness in town. Bari Uma's authenticity speaks for itself because one is bound to be eating in the company of many Japanese when one is dining there. 


Service is prompt and relatively fast. Bari Uma retains an open concept for their kitchen so you can have a good view of the chefs preparing your meal. Give them a smile if they catch you looking. 

I love gyozas. There is something irresistible about meat dumplings and Bari Uma scores pretty well even though its chicken gyozas rather than pork gyozas. Looking at it, since their chashu is outstanding, a chicken filling is also a good idea. Though in actual fact, we were told that chefs in Bari Uma have played about with the ingredients and concluded that chicken gyozas work best.

Its a ramen galore at Bari Uma. The noodles are made in house. You will be required to stipulate what's your prefer hardness for your ramen - soft, original or firm. Needless to say firm would be my choice as I am generally a slow eater so I hate having soft slushy noodles at the end of my meal.

The broths for the ramen are imported. Yeah...to ensure quality and consistency, the soups are actually imported from Japan. Slow cooked for 20 hours with pork bones for that ultimate rich and satisfying tonkatsu. 

My choice of was Noritama Uma RM29. A huge bowl of ramen with seaweed, charcoal grilled chashu, bamboo and of course a must have Ajitama (flavoured egg). Its a hearty meal in a bowl and the soup taste even better as the meal progresses because I left some of the chashu in the bowl.

Don't waste too much time taking pics. Eat them while they are hot!

The flavoured egg came out fine for me though I wished it was a tad more runny. Perhaps I left it sitting in the bowl a wee too long?

The noodles were al dente all the way till the end since I chose Firm and this is really a big plus point if you are a slow eater like me.

I love the sweetness of corn in my ramen. There is something about the light crunchiness and sweetness that sweet corn adds to a bowl of savoury ramen. Side topping of corn is RM2 and each serving is good enough for 2 to 3 bowls.

My bowl! It was a delightful meal for me from the first bite to the last slurp. Burp!

The husbter preferred more meat and no sea weed so his choice was Chashu Uma RM32. Add an Ajitama for RM2 if you want an egg with your ramen.

More chashu goodness in his bowl!

His bowl or my bowl...we both concluded that its the chashu that seals the deal for us at Bari Uma. The thick cut charshu is made with pork imported from Germany, boiled then marinated with a special soy marinade. Then the pork is on standby and is only grilled when there is an order. Its juicy, its flavourful and it could almost melt in your mouth. Its so good that we actually returned with some friends to grab the chashu with some Kirin! You can order the Aburi Chashu for RM18.80.

If you love the chashu, then the Chashu Chaofan RM14.90 is highly recommended. Rice in a hot stone bowl with a generous serving of Bari Uma's mouth watering chashu.

Mixed it all well before eating. Its a good meal on its own or order it to be shared amongst your dining companions.

We noted that the yakitori were also popular with the diners. Its a good idea to order some if you want to chat on or have a protein rich meal. Take your pick of different cuts of pork or chicken. We had the Yakitori Combo RM13.90 - leek, chicken, pork.

After all the hot savoury items, a cold dessert is a must. Sesame or green tea ice cream? We liked them both. The Black Sesame Kurogoma RM7.90 had some lovely bits of fine sesame seed for that extra bite. The Green Tea RM7.90 was not as sweet and makes a lovely end with some green matcha bitterness at the end.
