Review: Ramen Ton Chan

**Non-Halal**


CIMG9023

Does Ton Chan rang a bell to you?? Yes, there used to be one outlet over at The Curve but it has shut. I've been there but the food and service were both terrible. Not sure what went wrong over there when the fact that Ramen Ton Chan had stood strong over the years at Wisma Cosway just like it's sister restaurant, Tosaya.

Ton Chan is a simple no fuss restaurant. It's clean and well patronise by the Japanese community. Their specialty is ramen but of course they have other items as well. They made their own ramen using pure ingredients without any preservatives hence their ramen are bouncier, firmer and chewier. They have reasonable price set lunches and dinner. Lunch hours are usually packed with office workers around here.

On that evening we were there, there was this special set dinner which consisted of a bowl of braised pork ramen, assorted sashimi, a side salad, 2 slices of watermelon and a dessert of tutti fruiti ice-cream (no pics). This set was priced at RM25 but since I requested for fresh ramen, an extra RM1 was charged which is fine with me. The texture of the ramen even after soaking in the hot soup was springy right till the last bite! The braised pork which the waitress said "khau yuk" in Cantonese tasted blissful with the right amount of fatty layers (not too much) in between the lean. I drank up the soup till nothing was left in the bowl heh and did not have any after effect of msg, no thirst at all which is superb!

There is a 10% service charge imposed.

No MSG?!? I'm so there!! I seem to recall another similar old-skool, no-frills type Jap eatery in Wisma Cosway, in one obscure corner. Always been fascinated by that!Can't remember the name though, is this the same one?

I didn't dare try this place when I was working nearby (scared it'd put a hole in my pocket!). Now only I know it's quite reasonable...gah!

Japanese ramen...always looking nice and clean ! Maybe pricing is a problem ?

Usually they cost double or more against Malaysian noodles

550ml jar of faith, could be Tosaya their sister restaurant

Bangsar Babe, I had the same notion until my colleagues who have been there told me that is one reasonabily priced place esp their set lunches

Eh Jason, you've been eating warm home cook meal leh??? kekeke

J2Kfm, seriously leh it's bouncy till the last bite!

;-) Nomad Gourmand. Tos is amongst the few grand old dame of Japanese eatery in KL

NKOTB, nope cos this is an office area, I guess not much biz on Sundays

BSG, i think its the soup base esp the porky ones, they need to boil many hours

Not sure which I like better, the khau yoke or the fresh ramen.
