Ippudo, known globally for its rich tradition and mastery over ramen, yet again demonstrated its prowess in crafting extraordinary dishes.
Celebrating their 10th anniversary, Ippudo introduced a Yuzu-Inspired Chef Special Combo that seemed like a heartfelt tribute to a decade of culinary excellence.
Tonkatsu Yuzu Ramen ( Ala-carte RM 43)
At the heart of this dish is the tantalizing tang of yuzu, a citrus note that imparts a refreshing zestiness. This citrus burst flawlessly complements the rich, savory depth of their signature Tonkatsu pork broth, creating a balanced flavor profile that tantalizes the palate.
The ramen boasts ultra-thin noodles, perfectly cooked to retain a slight bite, ensuring each mouthful is texturally delightful. Accompanying these noodles is the restaurant’s meticulously prepared 3-layer Pork Kakuni, a testament to their commitment to culinary excellence. This pork, with its layers of flavor, adds depth and richness to the dish.
But the embellishments don’t end there. Fresh baby spinach brings a touch of earthy freshness, while the aromatic leek lends a gentle pungency. The tender menma, with its subtle bamboo taste, provides another layer of complexity. And to crown this masterpiece, a sprinkle of zesty yuzu skin is added, elevating the dish’s citrus notes and tying all the flavors together
Yuzu Juice Mocktail ( Ala-Carte : RM 17)
The glass arrives shimmering with effervescence, the bubbles dancing amidst a cascade of vibrant hues. The primary sensation is the unmistakable aroma of yuzu, that unique citrus that melds the tanginess of grapefruit with the sweet notes of mandarin. But this mocktail doesn’t stop at simply offering a burst of yuzu; it dives deeper, bringing forth layers of complexity and pleasure.
Floating within this bubbly delight are generous chunks of red grapefruit. These aren’t just any garnish; they are reservoirs of tart and tangy bursts, complementing the sweet and sour notes of the yuzu. With each sip, you’re greeted with these juicy morsels, infusing every gulp with a heightened intensity of citrusy freshness.In essence, the Yuzu Juice Mocktail is not just a beverage; it’s an odyssey through the citrus orchards of Japan, an elixir that promises to rejuvenate and refresh.
Yuzu Ice Cream
he soft, pale yellow hue, reminiscent of early morning sun rays, beckons invitingly.The first spoonful is nothing short of transformative. The creaminess of the ice cream melds seamlessly with the vibrant burst of yuzu. It’s a dance of textures and flavors – the velvety smoothness of the ice cream contrasting with the zesty, tangy notes of the yuzu. Each bite is like a refreshing breeze on a hot summer day, invigorating and cooling at once. Love this so much
